Ajwa dates aka the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) dates is one of the expensive dates around. U dont have to go to Mecca or Medina to get some, u can get them at Joo chiat level one or at Arab street. For half kilo it costs about $38. I’ve found out that this is GRADE 2 . For Grade 1, the shop owner said its very costly about $50 per half kilo thus they dont have it here.
Anyway, there are also “imitations” or some sold an inferior quality dates and “conned” the customers as “AJWA dates” To know whether its AJWA, look closely at the dates. There are very fine white lines on the dates.
Ajwa dates has many medicinal benefits but one of it is to prevent sihir or black magic.
Anyway, I had the sudden urge to eat some, I just bought at $10 for a handful (abt 10-12 pcs) of Ajwa dates.
So if u happen to visit the two Holy cities, dont forget to eat 7 pcs every morning!
For more info, just google the word: “Ajwa dates”….
