An-Nawawi on the Virtue of giving food to those who break their fasting

Verily, the angels send prayers upon the fasting person when others eat in his presence until they are finished.

By Abu Amina Elias / 31 Jul 2013

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

An-Nawawi records in his book Riyad us-Saliheen:

Zaid ibn Khalid Al-Juhani (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

 مَنْ فَطَّرَ صَائِمًا كَانَ لَهُ مِثْلُ أَجْرِهِ غَيْرَأَنَّهُ لَا يَنْقُصُ مِنْ أَجْرِ الصَّائِمِ شَيْئًا

Whoever feeds a person who is breaking his fast will earn the same reward as his without anything being lessened from the reward of the fasting person.

Umm Umarah Al-Ansari (may Allah be pleased with her) reported:

The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, entered her home and she served him food. The Prophet said:

كُلِي

Will you eat?

She said,

“Indeed, I am fasting.”

The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

إِنَّ الصَّائِمَ تُصَلِّي عَلَيْهِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ إِذَا أُكِلَ عِنْدَهُ حَتَّى يَفْرُغُوا

Verily, the angels send prayers upon the fasting person when others eat in his presence until they are finished.

Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, came to the home of Sa’d ibn Ubadah who presented him with bread and olive oil.

The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, ate them and he said:

أَفْطَرَعِنْدَكُمْالصَّائِمُونَوَأَكَلَطَعَامَكُمْ الْأَبْرَارُ وَ صَلَّتْ عَلَيْكُمْ الْمَلَائِكَةُ

May Allah reward you for breaking the fast of those who fast. The righteous have eaten your food and the angels send prayers for you.
