...This is the month of fasting which is known as Ramadhan in Ancient Arabian traditions. Ramadhan is the ninth month of the Islamic year, during which strict fasting is observed in daylight hours. Many Muslims try to give up bad habits during Ramadan and some will pray more or read the holy book, the Quran (pronounced Koran)
Dates are a type of fruit that contain several vitamins and minerals whose importance as a dietary supplement was appreciated by the desert people, which, for thousands of years, ate dates with goat or camel milk as a complete sustenance.
They provide several benefits for extra glowing skin and nourishing hair and are useful in the treatment of respiratory disorders, heart conditions, cancer (due to its high magnesium and calcium content), anemia, allergies, improve eyesight, night blindness and constipation.
In ancient arab traditions of ramadhan one of the many physical benefits of breaking the fast with dates is that the body benefits from the date's high level of natural sugars. Sugars travel most quickly to the liver, where they are converted into energy more quickly than any other nutrient.
Muslims have an immediate need for this energy when they break their fast as they need energy to perform their sunset prayers also to digest their first meal.
In the holy book, The Quran, the chapter named 'Surah Maryam' [19:25], it mentions that when the mother of Jesus was giving birth to him and she was experiencing pain, she was told by God; “shake the trunk of the palm towards you and fresh, ripe dates will drop down onto you.”
Dates have no side effects and can easily be included into your diet so do give them a try!
