Secret of DATES?

Do you know the secret of DATES?

Dates are high in vitamins A and B6, folic acid, potassium, natural sodium, iron, and magnesium. Eating dates daily during fasting is like taking a daily multivitamin.

This daily multivitamin can create a stronger and healthier body, one more fit for fasting. It also contains large amounts of dietary fiber, which can prevent any constipation that might result from eating the traditionally rich foods served during fasting. Additionally, dates protect the stomach and intestinal tract from parasites and bacteria, and thus is a good preventative medicine when eating ifthar at unfamiliar locations.

Despite that, dates also have a special place in Islam. in fact, they were one of the prophet’s (SAW) most frequently consumed foods. For this reason, their benefit is most likely spiritual as well as physical, one could perhaps consume any fruit high in natural sugars before ifthar to gain similar benefits. However, the act of following the Prophet’s (SAW) tradition is one way of connecting and remembering him, which is spiritually benificial for Muslims.

So, lets we eat dates!!

My Story In This Ramadhan

This is the first time I write a blog. I hope all readers are pleased with it. I begin with my sahur time. When the time of sahur, I always have a sahur with a loaf of cream bread because I want to try to save. Why? Because I don't have a job yet and I'm studying at a college in kelantan. In other word, I am far from my family. At home, I enjoy with my food because the food is already serve. When I am far from my family, I have to spend some money for myself. When we're trying to save, we cannot buy or eat a delicious food, because all delicious food are expensive. So, when I just eat a loaf of bread, I will not extravagant. Although I'm always eat a loaf of bread, I eat rice rarely. I eat rice when I buy it or its given by someone. When the time of break fasting, I'm always break fasting at the mosque. This is because break fasting at mosque I would not have to pay and I can get a barakah. It is save money. About tarawih, I always tarawih at mosque because I think its better when I pray it at mosque. After break fasting, I will wait for the time of tarawih. While waiting for it, I will read the al-mathurat. It's good if people read it in morning and evening everyday. That's all. I want write more, but I think its just okay. I'm just tried to write in English only.
