Hunger Stone of Rasoolullah (s)


Salam alaikum,

What kind of stone did the Prophet (s) use to ease hunger pangs ?



The texts do not mention it and the commentaries did not bring it up. This may be because the stone’s functionality makes its classification secondary or irrelevant, as any stone that met the purpose was adequate, namely, either to (i) keep the spine straight despite not eating anything for several days, and this is the majority gloss, or (ii) to keep the stomach cool through the coolness of the stone, an additional gloss provided by al-Qastallani.
