Wonder why muslims break their fast with dates (aka Palmae dactylifere or the malays called it “kurma”) first before any other food? Other than sunnah (accordance to the Prophet p.b.u.h )there are many other health benefits from dates that we can get …
It is similar to bananas in which it can replenish energy very easily.It appease hunger an also prevent abdominal cancer/intestinal disturbances.
I was told too that Kurma Ajwa (“Prophet pbuh dates” as they called it)
Still need more research on this…but for sure, I am an avid “Fan” of dates especially fresh dates..yummy!! Deliciously….yummy…..(one of my experience in the Madinah umrah )
