The fasting person and Nabi Musa (‘alayhis salam)

Question

Please verify the following: 

Once Musa (‘alayhis salam) asked Allah ‘Ta’ala

O  Allah! You have granted me the honour and privilege of talking to you directly, Have you given this privilege to any other person?

Allah Ta’ala replied, O Musa! during the last period I am going to send an Ummah, who will be the Ummah of Muhammad (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger. They will call out to me (in du’a) they will be much much closer to me than you.

O Musa! while you speak to me there are 70000 veils between you and me but at the time of iftar there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting Ummati of Mohammed (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) .

O Musa! I have taken upon myself the responsibility that at the time of iftar I will never refuse the du’a of a fasting person!

Answer 

This seems to be from the historical narrations (Israely) which may be quoted with caution, only if it doesn’t contradict our shari’ah.

This report does contradict our belief that no non-prophet can equal the rank of the Ambiya (‘alayhimus salam)

Musa (‘alayhis salam) is ranked among the 5 senior Ambiya (‘alayhimus salam).

This incident should therefore not be circulated!

 

Note: The fasting person’s du’a being accepted is also reported in other reliable Hadiths of Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
