The Secret of Tamr


In the Sahih it is narrated that the Prophet SAW said:

"Whoever ate seven dates in the morning from the area of 'Aaliyah will not be harmed by poison or magic the rest of that day."

He also said:

"The people of a house where there are no dates are hungry."

Also, the Prophet SAW ate dried dates with butter, with bread and alone.

Tamr is hot in the second degree and either wet or dry in the second degree.

Dried dates strenghten the liver, relax the bowels, increase semen production, especially when taken with pine and relieve sore throat.

As for those who are not used to eating dried dates such as the residents of cold areas, dried dates cause them clogs, harm the teeth and cause headaches unless they are eaten with almonds and poppy.

Dried dates are among the most nutritious fruits, their essence is hot and wet.

Also, when one eats dates in the beginning of the day, they help kill worms.

Although dried dates are hot, yet they have the strength of an antidote against worms, killing or at least decreasing their numbers, especially when dried dates are taken frequently on an empty stomach.

Dried dates are a fruit, a type of food, a cure, a drink and a sweet.

"Today is all that you have. Organize the hours of this day so that you make years out of minutes and months out of seconds. Seek forgiveness from your Lord, remember HIM, prepare for the final parting from this world and live today happily and at peace."
