BARKAT OF AASHURA
A Muslim prisoner escaped from the kuffaar on the Day of Aashura. A search party was pursuing him. The searchers reached his location during the night time. From his concealed position, the Muslim supplicated: “O Allah! By the barkat of this Day save me from the kuffaar.” Allah Ta’ala blinded the searchers until he had made good his escape.
That Day he was fasting, but he did not find anything for Iftaar. He went to sleep hungry. In a dream an Angel appeared and gave him some water to drink. Thereafter he lived another twenty years without having the need for food or drink.
