The thirst and hunger you feel today will be a shade on Yawm al-Qiyamah

Ahmad b. al-Najmī (رَحِمَهُ اللهُ) wrote:

“If you fast in this life, and accustom yourself to the thirst and hunger out of obedience to your Lord; and abandon your desires in obedience to Him (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىَ), Allah will reward you on the Day of Judgment. You shall be resurrected in a nourished state, while the rest of mankind will be thirsty.

When the sun draws closer to their heads, with only a distance of a mile, it will cause them to sweat. The disbeliever’s sweat will reach his mouth until it covers him in totality – Allah’s refuge is sought – but the believer will be shaded by (his) obedience to Allah.”
