Rumbling stomach

leave a comment »

It was narrated that Anas (رضي الله عنه) said:

The stomach of ‘Umar Ibn Khattab (رضي الله عنه) rumbled during the year of Drought. He used to eat olive oil and he forbade himself ghee. He patted his stomach and said,” You may rumble, but we have no other food until the famine is over.”

[Al Hilyah]
