Zaid bin Khalid Al-Juhani (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
He who
provides a fasting person something with which to break his fast, will earn the same reward as the one who was
observing the fast, without diminishing in any way the reward of the latter

Umm `Umarah Al-Ansariyah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: Once the Prophet (PBUH) visited us
and I served him some food. He (PBUH) asked me to eat. I replied that I was observing (optional) fast. He (PBUH)
said, "
When people eat by a person observing fast, the angels keep asking Allah's forgiveness for that person until
they have had their fill.
This Hadith tells us the merits of the person who is himself observing Saum but serves meals to

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) came to visit Sa`d bin `Ubadah (May
Allah be pleased with him) who presented bread and olive oil to him. The Prophet (PBUH) ate it and said, "
observers of fast have broken their fast with you (this is the literal translation, but the meaning is: `May Allah
reward you for providing a fasting people with food to break their fast'); the pious people have eat your food and the
angels invoked blessings on you
[Abu Dawud].
The word "
'' is informative in nature, but it is used in the sense of a prayer. Thus, what it
denotes is "
May Allah give you the reward of one who arranges for the Iftar (breaking the Saum) of somebody
Thus, it induces one to hospitality according to his means.
