Bishr and the People
Abu Ali relates that a man by the name of Bishr passed by a group of people who were talking amongst themselves about his noble qualities. That is he sleeps very little during the night and only makes Iftaar once every three days.
On hearing this Bishr was overwhelmed and reduced to tears and said, “I cannot remember that I have stayed awake one complete night and when I fast I break the fast the very same night it ends. But Allah through His Mercy puts in the hearts of people more than the servant actually worships”.
