Anas Malik (Radhi allahtala anhu) was one of the companions who had served the Prophet Muhammed (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) for many years. He therefore knew the Prophet's habits very well. When Hadhrat Muhammed (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) observed a fast, he usually broke it with milk and dates, and in the small hours of the night, he would take simple food for his sahar.
One day, Anas (Radhi allahtala anhu) knew that the Prophet (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) was fasting; so he arranged for his iftar. He kept the milk and dates ready. At the time of iftar the Prophet (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) did not appear, for the breaking of the fast. Anas thought that the
Prophet (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) might have accepted an invitation and broken his fast elsewhere. So Anas (Radhi allahtala anhu) ate the food himself and retired.
When Prophet Muhammed (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) entered the house with another companion, Anas (Radhi allahtala anhu) inquired from the companion whether the Prophet (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) had already eaten. The Prophet (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) had been dealing with some urgent work and was delayed, and he had not eaten. Anas felt so ashamed.
There was nothing left he could offer to the Prophet (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) , if he asked for food. Still he waited expectantly, ready to explain the situation to the Prophet (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) . Hadhrat Muhammed (Sal Allaho Alehi Wasallam) immediately sensed that Anas (Radhi allahtala anhu) was hesitant, so he remained silent and retired to bed hungry.
Anas (Radhi allahtala anhu) used to say: "The Messenger of God never mentioned this incident during his lifetime to anyone."
