7 dates in the morning
was very weird that western physicians who treat their patients by fasting
advise them by taking the natural sugar in fruits and water when breaking the
fast . And when we know that dates contain a high ratio of such easily-absorbed
sugar then dates and water are the best nutriments for fasters.
Here we remember the Hadith of our prophet (PBUH): (When any of you breaks his
fasting he should eat dates cause dates are blessing, if he didn't find dates
then drink water cause water is purifying) [Narrated by Abo Dawood] . Here we
see that the prophet (PBUH) showed us the principles of effective fasting, by
eating dates and drinking water at breakfast centuries before Westerns.
An Ideal Nutriment for Fasters
The prophetic wisdom out of having Dates for breakfast might be reduce the
hunger and consequently, reduce the amounts of food consumed; therefore the
fasting will be effective and useful. And if we remember that fasting consider
the best weapon to excise toxics out of the body, then having dates
(toxin-resistive) when you break your fast represent a real integrated
treatment against weakness and fatigue resulted from the accumulation of toxic
chemicals and heavy metals in the cells of the body.
if you are feeling weak, don't hesitate to take 7 dates in the morning as the
prophet (PBUH) recommended. those Seven dates weigh around 70 gm, so if you
take them, then you actually took 70 milligrams of calcium-which is very useful
for the bones, joints and nerves, 35 milligrams of phosphorus which is
nutritious to the brain and 7 milligrams of iron which is strengthens the body
in general and the heart in particular.
