People who maintain their fasts even though food is served before them
Ammarah relates that Allah's Messenger visited him at his house. A number of other companions also gathered there, who were served dates. One man isolated himself.
Allah's Messenger inquired, "What is the matter with him?"
The man replied, "I am fasting."
So, the Prophet said, "There is no fasting person before whom people eat except that Angels send Salaat upon him until they leave."[Musnad Ahmad (7/370)]
Shaikh Ahmad Abdur-Rahman al-Banna said while explaining the words of Allah's Messenger, "The Angels send Salaat upon him," "Angels send Salaat upon him because he practices patience even though food is served before him, and especially because (in this situation) his heart will be persuaded towards the food and fasting would become difficult for him." [Buloogh al-Amani (9/217). Also, see Tuhfatul-Awadhi (2/67)]
