A Grade Ajwah Dates. These dates are from this years harvest, are very fresh and soft. You will not be disappointed in the quality of these dates in sha allah. They come in 1kg sealed bag as shown in the picture.
Ideal for making date syrup or Nabidh drink which was recommended by Prophet Mohammed. In his time, it was typically made with dates or raisins in water. It is an alkalising tonic, having the tendency to remove acidity from the stomach and digestive system and it also helps to remove other metabolic waste from the body. It improves digestion as it is high in soluble fibre and it strengthens the memory. It assists the spleen function, liver, throat, chest and prostate, and so is particularly good for men. Nabidh will also benefit patients of Arthritis and elevated levels of uric acid (gout).
Making Nabidh is just as simple as soaking the dates (raisins or sultanas) overnight and drinking the water in which they were soaked in the morning.
The idea behind soaking the dates in water is so that they sweeten the water and become softened. Softened dates release their vitamins and minerals more easily and are easier to digest.
In the evening soak approximately 100g of dates in 1 litre of water (spring water is best as this is naturally alkaline). Keep covered overnight. in the morning you can drink the water and eat the soaked fruit or alternatively make it into a smoothie by blending it and drinking.
Nabidh should be consumed within 12 hours of soaking time to avoid fermentation, but if placed in an airtight container in the fridge will not spoil for 2-3 days.
NEVER mix raisins or dates together. Their nabidh should be made separately.

Following excerpts are taken from Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet by imam ibn Qayyim Al-Jauziyah p118
In the Sahihayn it is narrated that Abdullah bin Ja’far said, “I saw the Messenger of Allaah eat ripe dates with cucumbers.” Ripe dates are hot in the second degree, increase sexual desire and add strength to the cold stomach. However, ripe dates rot quickly, induce thirst, harm the teeth, spoil the blood and cause headaches, various clogs and pain in the prostrate. Cucumbers are cold and wet in the second degree and they prevent thirst, have a refreshing aroma and cool the stomach.
Combining the foods or medicines with their antidotes or opposites makes the product milder and rids it of any harmful side effects. consequently, the body will preserve its health, strength and wellbeing.
In short neutralising the effect of the hot substance with the cold, the cold with the hot, the dry with the wet and the wet with the dry produces a milder substance that is considered among the best remedies and preventative measures.
