THE NUTRITIONAL BENEFIT OF FRESH DATES AND CUCUMBER

Recommended Posts

Question

Is there any narration that states cucumber and dates helps to gain weight?

 

 

Answer

Yes. Imam Abu Dawud and Imam Ibn Majah (rahimahumallah) have recorded the following narration:

Sayyidatuna ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) says, “My mother wanted me to gain some weight before going [to the home] of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Nothing [benefited me] until she fed me cucumber and fresh dates which [helped me] gain weight nicely.”

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 3898, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3324)

 

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic and Hafiz Dhahabi concurs.

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 185)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.

      Distributing dates after nikaah
      Q: Is there any narration in regards to throwing kajoor in a nikaah? 

      A: At the time of nikaah, distributing dates by giving it to people or by throwing it towards people is permissible and established in the Hadith of Sunanul Kubra of Imaam Bayhaqi. However, in the case where one throws the dates towards the people, one should ensure that the respect of the musjid is not compromised and one does not hurt anyone.
      And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
      عن عائشة رضى الله عنها أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم تزوج بعض نسائه فنثر عليه التمر (سنن الكبرى للبيهقي #15078)
      قال الشامي : مطلب له الأخذ من نثار السكر في العرس  ويقرره أن مجرد الإلقاء من غير كلام يفيد هذا الحكم كمن ينثر السكر والدراهم في العرس وغيره فمن أخذ شيئا ملكه لأن الحال دليل على الإذن وعلى هذا لو وضع الماء والجمد على بابه يباح الشرب منه لمن مر به من غني أو فقير وكذا إذا غرس شجرة في موضع لا ملك فيه لأحد وأباح للناس ثمارها وكل ذلك مأخوذ من الحديث اه ملخصا من شرح السير الكبير (رد المحتار 4/285)
