The Reward Of Feeding A Fasting Muslim
Salman Al-Farisi Radhiyallâhu Anhu narrated that Rasulullah Sallâllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said:
“Whoever offers Iftar to a fasting person in Ramadan with his Halal (lawfully earned) income, all the angels will make Istighfar (ask forgiveness) on his behalf at nights during Ramadan. When it is the Night of Qadr (Power), Jibrail Alayhis Salâm makes musafaha (shakes hands) with him. The heart of the person whom Jibrail Alayhis Salâm makes musafaha will soften and his tears will increase.”
“O Prophet of Allah! What shall a person do who has nothing to offer for iftar?” I asked.
“Even if he has handful (of food), he gets the same reward.” replied Rasulullah Sallâllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “What should a person do if he doesn’t have even one morsel of bread?” I asked.
“Even with some milk mixed with water.” he said.
“If that is not available, either?” I asked.
“Even with a sip of water” replied Rasulullah Sallâllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam.
