Malik ibn Deenaar said, “By Allaah! I wish a pebble to suck would suffice for food and drink.”

Al-Hasan al-Basri said, “I met people who would have a bite to eat and wish it was a stone in their stomachs.” He also said, “One of them would say, ‘I wish I could eat a bite which would become like a tile/baked brick in my stomach.’” And al-Hasan said, “He said, ‘It has reached us that a piece of tile/or baked brick lasts in water for up to three hundred years.’”
Al-Joo’, p. 63.
