Fasting In Extreme Heat And Salaf

قال الحافظ ابن رجب الحنبلي رحمه الله : ومما يضاعف ثوابه في شدة الحر من الطاعات: الصيام لما فيه من ظمأ الهواجر ولهذا كان معاذ بن جبل يتأسف عند موته على ما يفوته من ظمأ الهواجر وكذلك غيره من السلف وروي عن أبي بكر الصديق رضي الله عنه أنه كان يصوم في الصيف ويفطر في الشتاء ووصى عمر رضي الله عنه عند موته ابنه عبد الله فقال له : عليك بخصال الإيمان وسمى أولها : الصوم في شدة الحر في الصيف قال القاسم بن محمد: كانت عائشة رضي الله عنها تصوم في الحر الشديد قيل له: ما حملها على ذلك؟ قال : كانت تبادر الموت.

Ibn Rajab al-Ḥanbalī رحمه الله: “…And from the acts of obedience whose reward is multiplied in the extreme of heat is, fasting, and this is because of the thirst that one experiences in the mid-day heat. This is why Mu’ādh b. Jabal رضي الله عنه expressed regret on his deathbed that he would no longer experience this mid-day thirst, as did the other Salaf.

And it is narrated about Abū Bakr رضي الله عنه that he would fast in the summer and not fast in the winter, and ‘Umar رضي الله عنه advised his son ‘Abdullāh on his deathbed: “Try to (obtain) characteristics of faith,” and the first one he mentioned was fasting in extreme heat.

And al-Qāsim b. Muḥammad said that ‘Ā`ishah رضي الله عنها would fast in the intense heat, and he was asked: “What made her do that?”

He replied: “She would rush (to take advantage of good deeds) before death.”
