An oft neglected Sunnah when breaking the fast…
Regarding ‘Alee ibn al-Ja’d [it was said that] for the last sixty years, he has been fasting every other day.
Hammaad ibn Abee Sulaymaan would feed fifty of the fasting everyday throughout Ramadhaan, and on the night before ‘Eed [al-Fitr] he would clothe them with a garment each.
It was narrated about Qataadah, that he would complete [the recitation of] the [entire] Qur.aan every seven [days], and [likewise] do so every three [days] during Ramadhaan.
I visited Ibraaheem ibn Haani whilst he was on his deathbed. [Whilst there] he called his son Ismaa’eel and said to him: Has the sun set [yet]?
