Worth reblogging. Cool post.

The Hidden Prestige

Dates

Donโ€™t you love Ramadan?

The month of fasting, prayer, charity, and dates?

Edible ones, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This blessed month, when the small, sweet fruit seems to be everywhere, letโ€™s take a moment to see how something so small can be so beneficial.

Breaking the fast with dates is a well-known Sunnah of the Prophet ุตู„ู‰ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุนู„ูŠู‡ ูˆุณู„ู… ย :

ุนูŽู†ู’ ุฃูŽู†ูŽุณู ุจู’ู†ู ู…ูŽุงู„ููƒูุŒ ู‚ูŽุงู„ูŽ โ€ โ€œโ€ ูƒูŽุงู†ูŽ ุงู„ู†ู‘ูŽุจููŠู‘ู ุตู„ู‰ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุนู„ูŠู‡ ูˆุณู„ู… ูŠููู’ุทูุฑู ู‚ูŽุจู’ู„ูŽ ุฃูŽู†ู’ ูŠูุตูŽู„ู‘ููŠูŽ ุนูŽู„ูŽู‰ ุฑูุทูŽุจูŽุงุชู ููŽุฅูู†ู’ ู„ูŽู…ู’ ุชูŽูƒูู†ู’ ุฑูุทูŽุจูŽุงุชูŒ ููŽุชูู…ูŽูŠู’ุฑูŽุงุชู ููŽุฅูู†ู’ ู„ูŽู…ู’ ุชูŽูƒูู†ู’ ุชูู…ูŽูŠู’ุฑูŽุงุชูŒ ุญูŽุณูŽุง ุญูŽุณูŽูˆูŽุงุชู ู…ูู†ู’ ู…ูŽุงุกู โ€โ€โ€ โ€.

โ€Anas bin Malik narrated:

โ€œThe Messenger of Allah ุตู„ู‰ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุนู„ูŠู‡ ูˆุณู„ู… would break the fast with fresh dates before performing Salat. If there were no fresh dates then (he would break the fast) with dried dates, and if there were no dried dates then he would take a few sips of water.โ€
