Hadrat Sayyiduna Abdul Wahid bin Zaid – may Allah be pleased with him – was considered an eminent Saint of his era. He is reported to have performed the Fajr Salaah with the Wudu of the ‘Isha Salaah for forty years. The entire day and night was spent in spiritual penitence and Mujaahidah.


One day, his legs became so sore that he could not wake up for Salaah. He felt such immense pain that he could only perform two rak’ah of Salaah. Due to the immense pain, he dozed off at that spot.


As he slept, he saw two maidens appear and they were accompanied by a few other maidens. They then sat in front of him. The one at the front then ordered her companions to prepare a bed for him. They were also instructed to do this softly so that it does not disturb his sleep. As they did this, the one in front then ran her hands over his body and made a special Du’a and said to him, “Awake and perform the Ibadah of Allah in peace and may Allah forgive you.”

The moment he awoke no pain was felt and he continued to perform his Ibadah without any pain or discomfort thereafter. The words of this female also remained with him for a long period thereafter.
