    Now we are in the US that is just a memory 🙂

    In providing 10 Muslims with these Ajwa dates, you are in fact helping more than 10 people break their fast, for you do not not know how many times these dates will be passed on. It could be to a homeless man, an orphaned child or to someone who will upon eating the date affirm their faith by saying the shahada.

    The reward will be great! I would share these dates with newly converted sisters while teaching them about the hadiths pertaining to dates! InshaAllah!

  52. As a southerner here in the US, I had never tried dates until I met my husband. Since then, I have really enjoyed them in desserts, plain, and in my oatmeal! Of course, it is hard to find dates, especially good ones, here. I’m so happy there is a website to help get them wherever!! 🙂

  53. Narrated Sa`d:
    Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “He who eats seven ‘Ajwa dates every morning, will not be affected by poison or magic on the day he eats them.”
    حَدَّثَنَا جُمْعَةُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، حَدَّثَنَا مَرْوَانُ، أَخْبَرَنَا هَاشِمُ بْنُ هَاشِمٍ، أَخْبَرَنَا عَامِرُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ مَنْ تَصَبَّحَ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ سَبْعَ تَمَرَاتٍ عَجْوَةً لَمْ يَضُرُّهُ فِي ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ سُمٌّ وَلاَ سِحْرٌ ‏”‏‏.‏

  57. My daughter has been recently diagnosed at a very young age with high cholesterol and after researching I found out that ajwa dates are really beneficial for this diagnosis. I been trying and hoping that I can see results in 6 months at her next visit. However, I did not have many and to ask someone to keep bringing them was a problem. Only recently, i came upon this site and will InshaAllah order them and the powder and give a lot of dua to zuu zum to making it accessible so that it can InshaAllah heal my daughter as these precious dates are from the seeds plants by our beloved prophet Muhammad PBUH. May Allah grant her shifa and everyone else who is not well, InshaAllah. Ameen

  58. Having grown up in the US, I had never had good dates until I was an adult. I remember the first time I had a sugary sweet date at an iftar. Wow, I wanted to eat the whole plate of dates. I’ve been hooked ever since. I’m happy to learn about new sources for good dates, especially since I’m 100 miles from a Mediterranean market.

  59. I have had the privilege of tasting many different variety of dates over these years, the flavor of ajwa stands out over all Mashallah..

  60. Dates prepare the stomach to receive the food after being inactive through out the day with activating the release of digestive secretions and juices.
    -Wishing everyone health and a blessed Ramadan this year.

  64. We used to have Ajwa Dates in Ramazan every year when we stayed in the Middle East. Dates aid digestion after fasting in the Holy month of Ramazan. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) recommended we break fast with dates, or drink water if there were no dates available.

  65. Ajwa dates are one of my two most favorite date varieties. They’re apparently known to grow only inside the hudood (borders) of the city of Madina. They’re extremely delicious and it would be a blessing to break fast with then this Ramadan with the entire family.

  66. I am so looking forward to buying Ajwa dates on my recent trip back home during ramadan, but my facebook newsfeed just showed me that I can actually get these dates here…..and may be for free as well. The best dates for me because our dearest Prophet enjoyed them so much.
