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. Answered by: Moulana Suhail Motala Approved by: Moulana Muhammad Abasoomar hadithanswers
