Dates in the Holy Qur’an & the Sunnah of the Prophet

 
 

  
The date fruit and tree were dear to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the word “date” is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an more than 20 times.

While the date palm tree is called “nakhl,” the fruit is called “tamr” in Arabic.

The date palm, mentioned more than any other fruit-bearing plant in the Qur’an, is a symbol often associated with Islam and Muslims. Throughout the month of Ramadan, dates are a common ingredient in the Muslim diet.

The Prophet said: “Break your fast by eating dates as it is purifying,” (Ahmad).

On the basis of this Hadith, Muslims insist on breaking their fasts with dates. However, in another Hadith, the Prophet said, “If you have a date, break your fast with it, if you don’t have it, break the fast with water as it is purifying.” (Abu Dawood)

According to another Hadith, “The Messenger said: Ajwah dates are from Paradise.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

Ajwah is one of the excellent varieties of dates grown in the Madinah region.

In Surah Maryam of the Holy Qur’an, Allah provided Prophet Isa’s (peace be upon him) mother Maryam (peace be upon her) with fresh dates when she was experiencing discomfort and pain during the final stages of her pregnancy.

“Shake the trunk of the palm toward you and fresh, ripe dates will drop down onto you.” (Surah Maryam: verse 25)

The significance of the date palm as a source of nutrition and sustenance is evident in the statement narrated by Ibn Umar (may Allah be pleased with him): “The Prophet said there is a tree among the trees which is similar to a Muslim (in goodness), and that is the date palm tree.” (Bukhari)

In another Hadith, the Prophet stressed the importance of dates as a major food item, saying, “People in a house without dates are in a state of hunger.” (Muslim)

The excellence of date palms is also referred to in the following verse of the Holy Qur’an: “And in the earth are tracts (diverse though) neighboring, and gardens of vines and fields sown with corn, and palm trees — growing out of single roots or otherwise: watered with the same water, yet some of them We make more excellent than others to eat. Behold, verily in these things there are signs for those who understand.” (Surah Al-Raad, verse 4)

The date is also referred to in the Holy Qur’an as one of the blessings that would be offered in Paradise.

In several traditions the Prophet ate dates with some other fruits and vegetables. “Abdullah ibn Jaafar, may Allah be pleased with him, said the Messenger ate cucumbers with dates.” (Al-Tirmidhi) According to two other traditions recorded by Al-Tirmidhi, the Prophet ate dates with watermelon or muskmelon.

The Prophet also taught his disciples that the date was not only an antidote to poison but also an effective defense against black magic. “Whoever eats seven dates of the High Land of Madinah in the morning will not be hurt by poison or sorcery on that day.” (Bukhari)

“Rubay bint Mu’awwidh ibn Afraa said: ‘I took a plate of fresh dates and small cucumbers to the Messenger. He gave me a handful of jewelry, or a handful of gold.’” (Al-Tirmidhi)

In another Hadith, the Prophet exhorted the believers that “you should defend yourselves from the hellfire even with a piece of date.”

It has also been reported that the Prophet used to put chewed dates or honey into the mouths of newborn babies.

Reference to the palm tree could also be seen in chapter Qaf, Al-Shuara and Al-Nahl of the Holy Qur’an. In early descriptions of the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, historians state that the leaves of the date palm were used as a roof covering.

The Date: A source of nourishment

By ROGER HARRISON

The date palm, originating, as best we know, in the Middle East, has proved such a successful plant and source of nourishment that it has spread across the planet.

Domesticated and bred to meet local conditions, the date palm was first recorded in the area around the Arabian Gulf and in ancient times was especially abundant in the arc between the Nile and Euphrates rivers. There is archeological evidence of cultivation in eastern Arabia as early as 4,000 B.C., making it one of the earliest agricultural products of human history.

Nomadic tribes planted date palms at oases during their peregrinations. Arabs brought the plant to Spain. It has been grown for centuries along the French Riviera, in southern Italy, Sicily and Greece, but the fruit they produce is not perfect. The date has traditionally been a staple food in Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, Arabian Peninsula and Iran.

Spanish explorers introduced the date into Mexico as seedlings. Date palms reached California in 1796. By 1837 they were being exported from Baja California. Dates prospered both there and in Arizona, and in 1912 Paul and Wilson Popenoe purchased 16,000 offshoots of selected cultivars, which are a variation of a species that has been produced through breeding and hybridization, from Algeria, eastern Arabia and Iraq. Dates became a profitable crop in California, especially in the Coachella Valley.

This remarkable tree can grow in poor soil and arid conditions that would kill most other food-bearing plants. It is largely this characteristic that has made it so valuable in its area of origin and has proved valuable into diversifying the original stock into over 1,500 different varieties worldwide.

A distinctive erect palm can top 30 meters and produce the characteristic spiny leaves that can reach six meters in length.

The date palm has separate male and female trees. Palms can be easily grown from seed, but only half the seedlings will be female and hence fruit bearing. Dates from seedling plants are often smaller and of poorer quality.

Often the sex of a date palm is difficult to determine and the tree can even change sex before reaching maturity. An examination of the flowers of a young tree may not necessarily be very helpful in revealing its eventual gender.

Most commercial plantations use cuttings of heavily cropping cultivars (cuttings for propagation), mainly medjool, as this variety produces particularly high yields of large, sweet fruit. A commercial advantage of this technique is that plants grown from cuttings will fruit two or three years earlier than seedling plants and be of the same sex as the parent tree which enables groves to be mainly filled with female trees (fruit bearing) at the ratio of about 40:1.

The young date palm between three and seven years old produces small fragrant flowers, the female whitish and the male waxy and cream colored, on a hanging filament that divides into anything between 25 and 150 strands. It is the lateral buds of older trees which bear the fruit.

Large filaments may carry anything between 6,000 and 10,000 flowers. Some date palms have strands bearing both male and female flowers; others may have perfect single sex flowers.

As the fruits develop, their combined weight bends the stalk holding the cluster downward. The fruit is oblong and depending on the type, is between 2.5-7.5 cm long, dark-brown, reddish, or yellowish-brown. When ripe it is sweet, but astringent when forming and green.

Iraq has always led the world in date production, but the acute drought that has plagued Iraq for the past five years, as well decades of conflict, have slashed agricultural production in the country. One of the worst affected crops is the date palm, one of the staples of Iraqi agricultural production. Iraq, once produced three-quarters of the world's dates and grew 629 different varieties. It now falls behind Egypt, Iran and Saudi Arabia. Date production in Iraq today comes to around 300,000-350,000 tons a year, about a third of what it was in 2000, according to Faroun Ahmed Hussein, head of the Iraq national date palm board.

In Saudi Arabia, Madinah's date market (Souq Al-Tamaar) offers about 150 varieties, the most popular of which is Anbara, which is also the most expensive. Other varieties include Ajwah, (exceptionally sought-after when grown in Madinah, due to its affiliation with the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him), Halwa, Shalabi, Barnie and Mabroum.

The United Arab Emirates has more than 42 million producing date palms, and it has become the leading country in the world in producing dates, according to leading Iraqi agricultural expert Ali Tawfiq.

According to Abdullah Al-Obaid, Undersecretary for Research and Development at the Ministry of Agriculture, Saudi Arabia has an estimated 12 to 15 million palms under cultivation with some 93 percent (Saudi MOA 2009) of annual production consumed in the Kingdom.

Apart from being a very palatable fruit, the date packs a powerful nutritional punch. Although the exact proportions vary across varieties, the typical composition of a date is: moisture, 23 percent; protein 2.2 percent; energy 274Kcal; carbohydrates 73 percent (sugars); fiber 2.3 percent; ash 1.9 percent; and a significant spread of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, phosphorous, sodium, calcium, potassium and, unique in fruits, lactin which is normally only found in milk.

The palm, resistant to very sever climatic conditions is not without its successful enemies however. The red palm weevil (Rhynchophorous ferrugineus) kills off the palm by attacking and infesting the crown of the plant. Walking in a grove of blackened and twisted trees that once bore this remarkable fruit - frozen in positions that look as if they died writhing in agony - is a thought provoking experience.

Happily, the date is in no danger of dying out and if the Saudi Ministry of Agriculture has anything to do with it, has a bright future as an export foodstuff to the West and beyond.

Therapeutic value is not just folklore

By ROGER HARRISON

The value of dates as food has long been known and a simple analysis establishing them as a source of protein, glucose, vitamins and minerals is fact. Far less of an established fact is the folkloric record of their medicinal properties.

As with many folk practices, the medicinal lore of the date was compiled from patient observation perhaps over generations, hearsay and accumulated knowledge passed on through successive generations. That by no means invalidates the knowledge or indeed the efficacy of the fruit or its decoctions and derivatives.

Modern science does not change the value of what the date may or may not do, but can isolate the active ingredients and identifies them so that they might be identified, their medicinal attributes logged and perhaps manufactured. It answers the question of questions; Why?

A particularly good example of the eventual explanation of a long established custom is the tradition among Muslims parents to put a piece of well-chewed date or other available sweet fruit in the mouth of a newborn baby.

Muslims do this following the recorded practice of the Prophet (peace be upon him). The practice followed for religious or cultural reasons, however, has a solid foundation in scientific fact that the followers of tradition could not have known about.

The practice was well known. Abu Buradah reported from Abu Musa, who said: "I had a newborn baby; I took him to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), who called him Ibrahim. The Prophet chewed a date then he took it and rubbed the inside of the baby's mouth with it."

Placing a sugary substance in a newborn baby's mouth was believed to reduce pain and the heart rate of the child, for example during the procedure of heel-pricking and circumcision.

In 1995, the British Medical Journal (No 6,993, June 10, 1995) published a study carried out in the postnatal ward in the Leeds General Infirmary in England. It confirmed the practice had repeatable and direct effects that confirmed the traditional belief that a sugary substance in a newborn's mouth reduces crying and probably the perception of pain.

Dates have a very high sugar content with Deglet Noor dates weighing in at a hefty 63.3 percent, about the same as the average hard candy. Depending on the species and the soils it grew in, the sugar breakdown has been established as about glucose, fructose and sucrose content as 32, 32.7, and 8.2 percent respectively for the date fruit.

A Medjool date for example contains 31,954 milligrams of fructose per 90 gram serving, according to NutritionData.com. In effect, three dates can supply up to 20 percent of your daily-recommended intake of fructose, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

The Leeds research paper reported that 60 healthy infants of one to six days old in a double blind randomized and placebo controlled trial were given two milliliters of placebo and various dilute sucrose solutions placed on their tongues two minutes before the heel prick test. The observers measured the length of time the child cried after the heel prick.

There was, the researchers noted, "a significant reduction in overall crying time and heart rate after three minutes in the babies given 50 percent sucrose as compared with controls. This was maximal one minute after heel prick in the 50 percent sucrose group and became statistically significant in the 25 percent sucrose group at two minutes. There was a significant trend for a reduction in crying time with increasing concentrations of sucrose over the first three minutes."

They concluded that the concentrated sucrose seemed to reduce crying and that it might be a "useful and safe analgesic for minor procedures in neonates."

Some of the more widespread and less well empirically researched remedies the date supplies range from the remedy of potassium deficiency, dates have a relatively high level of potassium, through its efficaciousness as a cure for kidney stones to its use as an aphrodisiac.

The tannin in dates is said to act as a cleansing agent for intestinal trouble, and in the form of an infusion, decoction, syrup or paste, is administered as a treatment for sore throat, cold, and bronchial catarrh.

The list of conditions influenced by the administration of the date or its derivatives is long and at the fringes journeying into the realms of fantasy, with claims of curing venomous snake bites to cures for alcoholism. With the wealth of folkloric tradition that surrounds the date, it might be a rich seam of as yet undiscovered empirical fact and as such would be worth exploring.

They are, whatever the myths that surround them, a fine food source, easily digestible and a source of a good selection of sugars, proteins and trace elements.

The truly remarkable thing is that a fruit as valuable, wholesome and simply as delicious as a date can grow in saline, poor quality soil and withstand arid conditions that would kill the vast majority of fruit bearing plants. And as the Arab proverb says: "Better a handful of dry dates and content therewith than to own the gate of peacocks and be kicked in the eye by a broody camel."

Says it all, really.

Authorities keen to preserve precious Madinah dates

By MUHAMMAD HUMAIDAN

Millions of Haj and Umrah pilgrims as well as visitors from all over the world flock to Madinah, Islam's second holiest city, to realize their life-long wish of visiting the grave of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and offer prayers at Rawda Sharif.

Almost all of them return from the city after fulfilling their other desire of buying famous dates of Madinah. The authorities in Madinah are keen to preserve this precious wealth of the city which is an integral part of its rich heritage.

A number of senior officials of the Ministry of Agriculture unveiled the salient features of their well-planned strategy to preserve the date palm farms in the region. The very number of date palm trees in the region is a telling example of this keenness. There were 1,381,640 date palm trees in the region in 1990. This has shot up to 3,185,907 trees during the last year. The volume of production of various types of dates was about 5,071 tons during the year 1971. This has since jumped to 125,534 tons in 2009.

There has, however, been a shrinking in the total area of date palm cultivation within the borders of the Haram, and this was mainly attributed to the rapid growth of population and expansion of the city in addition to several other factors. However, the cultivation of date palms has witnessed tremendous growth as far as the entire Madinah region was concerned. This was more obvious with regard to Al-Ola region in the province. The total area of date palm farms in Madinah province during the year 1971 was 1,248 hectares. But the statistical figures obtained by Arab News from the Ministry of Agriculture showed that the total area soared to 18,576 hectares during the year 2009.

Omar Obaid Ballahmar, director of the agriculture department in Madinah, said that Al-Ola region ranks first among the date palm cultivating regions in the province. The number of fruit-laden date palms in Al-Ola reached 945,875 while those trees without fruits account for 373,002.

The government is extending all possible support to the date palm farmers. Farmers in Al-Ola region alone have received government loans worth SR2,264,846,881. The farmers are beneficiaries of the irrigation projects implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture. The government is also extending various types of other services such as consultancy services pertaining to various aspects of cultivation, harvest and methods to fight against insects.

Arab News attended a workshop focusing on the problems facing the date palm cultivation in the region. A field tour to the date palm farms in the region was also conducted on the sidelines of the workshop. Two prominent scientists from King Saud University of Riyadh - Saleh Al-Dosary, supervisor of the date palm research chair, and Younus Khan, researcher at the chair - addressed the workshop and led the field tour. The tour covered farms of a number of leading Saudi farmers, such as Dakheel Al-Ahmadi, Abdul Aziz Ilyas, and Mohsen Al-Radadi. During the inspection tour, demonstration classes were held. The scientists showed examples of the common diseases affecting the date palm trees, such as red date palm weevil and explained about the ways to combat them. They also showed how to treat such diseases besides giving necessary instructions in this respect.

We all know of the Sunnah of giving a new born babies some date paste.



Sugar gel' helps premature babies

25 September 2013

Around the globe each year 15 million babies are born too soon
A dose of sugar given as a gel rubbed into the inside of the cheek is a cheap and effective way to protect premature babies against brain damage, say experts.

Dangerously low blood sugar affects about one in 10 babies born too early. Untreated, it can cause permanent harm.

Researchers from New Zealand tested the gel therapy in 242 babies under their care and, based on the results, say it should now be a first-line treatment.

Their work is published in The Lancet.

Sugar dose

Dextrose gel treatment costs just over ฃ1 per baby and is simpler to administer than glucose via a drip, say Prof Jane Harding and her team at the University of Auckland.

Current treatment typically involves extra feeding and repeated blood tests to measure blood sugar levels.

But many babies are admitted to intensive care and given intravenous glucose because their blood sugar remains low - a condition doctors call hypoglycaemia.

The study assessed whether treatment with dextrose gel was more effective than feeding alone at reversing hypoglycaemia.

Neil Marlow, from the Institute for Women's Health at University College London, said that although dextrose gel had fallen into disuse, these findings suggested it should be resurrected as a treatment.

We now had high-quality evidence that it was of value, he said.

Andy Cole, chief executive of premature baby charity Bliss, said: "This is a very interesting piece of new research and we always welcome anything that has the potential to improve outcomes for babies born premature or sick.

"This is a cost-effective treatment and could reduce admissions to intensive care services, which are already working at high capacity levels.

"While the early results of this research show benefits to babies born with low blood sugars, it is clear there is more research to be done to implement this treatment."

Here in NYC, I'm noticing that the Israeli medjool dates are the best selling dates in and around ramadan time. Isreali dates have taken over the market in nyc , big time!. I'm upset to see Muslims selling and buying this stuff knowing that they are supporting the yahoodis. Why can't we get some medjool dates from Saudi or from other Muslim countries instead of Israel?! Muslims are suppose to the kings of dates, not yahoodis.

How to remove a date stone from your mouth without getting saliva or spittle on the other dates.

Please take note of the fingers joined together!

Every Sunnah is so beautiful

I've got an answer from Mufti Sufyan.

QUESTION:

When eating dates is there a Sunnah method of removing the date stones from the mouth without using the finger tips? (i.e. to avoid saliva from going from the fingers to ther plate and thus spreading the saliva onto the other dates)

ANSWER:

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful

แธคadฤซth:

It has been narrated on the authority ofย Abdullah ibn Busr who says that Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) came to my father. He (Abdullah ibn Busr) (further) said that we presented some food and a preparation of dates, cheese and butter to the Prophet, and he ate from it. Then he was given dates which he was eating and he placed their stones between his fingers, and he joined his index finger and middle finger. Shu'ba reported: I think this part that โ€œputting the date stones between two fingersโ€ is in the hadith narration inshaAllah. Then a drink was brought for him and he drank it, and then gave it to the individual who was on his right side. He (the narrator) said: My father took hold of the rein of his riding animal and requested himย (the Prophet)ย to supplicate for us. Thereupon he said: โ€œO Allah. bless them in what you have provided for them as sustenance, and forgive them and have mercy on themโ€.[1]

The above แธฅadฤซth has been narrated by Imฤm Muslim.ย From amongst others,ย it has also been narrated by Tirmidhฤซ and Abลซ Dฤwลซd with similar wording.

It is clear from the above แธฅฤdฤซth that on one occasion when the Prophet ๏ทบ was given dates and he was eating them,ย he placed the date stones between his fingers, and he joined his index finger and middle finger.

Another narration suggests that he placed the date stones between theย outer partย ofย his index finger and middle finger that were merged / joint together.ย [2]

Commentary:

In all the books of แธฅฤdฤซth where this narration was found, it was found to be narrated by one companion, Abdullah ibn Busr (may Allah be pleased with him). This suggests that it is an isolated incident. This is not to say that it be totally dismissed.

Mulla 'Ali Qari (Allah have mercy on him) states that for this practice, the Prophet ๏ทบ used his left hand.ย [3]

It has been attributed to Ibn hajar (Allah be pleased with him) that the wisdom in this practice is to teach the nation the etiquette of eating dates and other such food items in this manner, so that the date stones do not touch the inner part of the fingers because one would feel uncomfortable to use the same hand to eat again immediately because of the saliva that would have gathered on the fingers.ย [4]

According to the above explanation of the wisdom behind such an action, the Prophet would have used the fingers of his right hand. However, Mulla 'Ali Qari (Allah be pleased with him) has disputed the above wisdom suggesting that in this narration, the Prophet ๏ทบ used the fingers of his left hand.[5]

Abul 'Ala Muhammad al-Mubarakpuri (Allah be pleased with him) states that the Prophet ๏ทบ would put the date stones between his fingers in such a manner due to the littleness of the date stones. So he never used to put the date stones back in the dish where the dates were, so as not to mix the date stones with the dates.[6]

Upon conclusion, the แธฅadฤซth about this issue is authentic. However, it seems like an isolated incident of the Prophet ๏ทบ. Furthermore, there is no specific mention in แธฅadฤซth which hand the Prophet ๏ทบ used for this practice. Hence, the scholars differed in this regard, and they also differed in the reasoning behind such a practice. As such, it should not be actively promoted as an established Sunnah. However, if one wants to act upon this, then it is fine.

And Allah, the Almighty, knows best

HOW MANY DATES WOULD NABI (SALLALLAHU โ€˜ALAYHI WA SALLAM) HAVE AT IFTAR?

Question

Is there any mention in Hadith as to how many dates did Nabi (sallallahu โ€˜alayhi wa sallam) consume at the time of iftar?

Answer

Imam Abu Yaโ€™la (rahimahullah) has recorded a narration which states Nabi (sallallahu โ€˜alayhi wa sallam) would have three dates at the time of iftar.

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu โ€˜anhu) reports: โ€œNabi (sallallahu โ€˜alayhi wa sallam) liked to open his fast with three dates or anything that was not [cooked] on fire.โ€

(Musnad Abi Yaโ€™la, Hadith: 3305)

โ€˜Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared a narrator weak.

(Majmaโ€™uz Zawaid, vol. 5 pg. 155. Also see: Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 6997)

Note: This Hadith states Nabi (sallallahu โ€˜alayhi wa sallam) liked/loved to open his fast with three dates. It does not mean that three dates were always available. There were times when Nabi (sallallahu โ€˜alayhi wa sallam) only had water to open his fast.

And Allah Taโ€™ala Knows best.
