Put Hunger on Strike

Hunger and starvation.

If anything, this is one thing which has the potential to affect every living thing. Humans and animals alike. That is why every living creature, every living organism which needs some sort of sustenance, does everything in its power to make sure that it does not starve – that it does not die.

Enter the Qur’an – The Book of answers…..

Ibn Mas’ood (RA) reports that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “Whoever reads Surah Al-Waaqi’ah every night, starvation shall never afflict him.”

Al-Waaqi’ah is a Surah (chapter) of the Holy Qur’an, and this is one of the many instances where the great Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has urged Muslims to seek not only their spiritual benefits, but their material benefits through the Qur’an.

So there we have it. Another pragmatic example of Islam. That as humans, we do not forsake this life, nor do we forsake the life to come, but that we find a balance and choose those things which will help us in both.

PS: You still have to get up really early tomorrow morning and go to work, we live in the world of reality, not fantasy!!

And Allah knows best.

Ma’as-salaam
