Riyad as-Saliheen 230

'Aishah (May Allah bepleased with her) reported:
The Prophet ﷺ prohibited his Companions out of mercy for them, from observing continuous fasting without a break. They said: "But you observe fast continuously". He replied, "I am not like you. I spend the night while my Rubb provides me with food and drink".

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

(This means that Allah has bestowed upon him the power of endurance like that of a person who eats and drinks).

وعنها رضي الله عنها قالت: نهاهم النبي ﷺ عن الوصال رحمة لهم، فقالوا: إنك تواصل؟ قال: "إني لست كهيئتكم، إني أبيت يطعمني ربي ويسقيني " ((متفق عليه)) . (11)
