It is narrated that Abu Umaamah al-Baahili said:
I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say:
“Whilst I was sleeping, two men came to me and took hold of my upper arm, and brought me to a rugged mountain.
They said: ‘Climb up.’ I said: ‘I cannot do it.’ They said: ‘We will make it easy for you.’
So I climbed up until I was at the top of the mountain. There I heard loud voices.
I said: ‘What are these voices?’ They said: ‘This is the screaming of the people of Hell.’
Then I was taken and I saw people suspended by their ankles, with the corners of their mouths torn and pouring with blood.
I said: ‘Who are these?’ They said: ‘These are the people who broke their fast before it was time to do so.’”
Narrated by al-Bayhaqi, no. 7796; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani.
If this is the punishment for the one who breaks his fast before it is time, then what about the one who does not fast at all?
