Al-Hasan said, “’Umar ibn al-Khattaab never ate anything except a barley mixture up until he met Allaah [i.e., passed away]. Sometimes his stomach would rumble so he would tap it with his hand and say [to it], ‘Be patient! For by Allaah! I have nothing for you apart from what you see up until you meet Allaah.’”

Az-Zuhd of Imaam Ahmad, vol. 2, p. 26.
