What Is The Best Food To Open You Fast With?

Recommended Posts

Ramadan Karim Fellow Members :)

I thought this would be a wholesome topic for us to share...

Dates with plain yogurt is my favourite food to open my fast with... followed by a soup or light meal.

Iltimaase Dua.

I have started having a glass of milk first after seeing a programme on BBC where they looked into what the best thing to drink is if youre dehydrated. Apparently its semi-skimmed milk. So i have that and date and greek yoghurt and then a little later a meal.

My secret ingredient is a little known herb, know as allium sativum, it is actually a species from the onion genus, 'allium'. Its close relatives include the onion, shallot, leek, chive and rakkyo. - anyway, stick a load of that in.

You may need to go to a specialist shop to get it.

(I'm talking about the red daal you eat with rice btw)

Dates and then a quite warm glass of water, and any kind of soup as the meal :)

funnily enough thats exactly what i had today.

Dates with a cup of water followed by my mom's Lentil soup.

EDIT: wow didnt realize so many had the same thing as me... exactly!!

Assalaamu alaykum,

The Holy Prophet (saww) used to break his fast with dates, and Imam Ali (as) used to break his fast with salt. Personally, I like breaking the fast with the dates as well. The sweetness of the dates and that comforting feeling of following the sunnah of the Prophet (saww) make the perfect beginning to iftar. :D

Wassalam

My grandmother used to make date biscuits and other confectionary from dates before Ramadham started and throughout the holy month we enjoyed them after iftar with tea, for suhuwr etc. i dont know why but dates have some importance in Ramadan.

I remember on a program i watched on bbc (that was medically orientated), that milk hydrates you the quickest. I used to have greek yoghurt and dates with water, but now i have milk and dates.

I've seen people in Pakistan break their fasts with salt every time. O.o Does anyone have a reference from ahadith about this practice?

 

I break mine with dates. Today I asked my sister, who was making pakoras, to try frying one date dipped in the yellow batter they use for making pakoras... it didn't taste any different lol.

That is based off the general prescription in aHadith to start off ANY meal with salt and end it with the same. There is no Hadith that will tell you it's desirable to break fast with salt. However, you have to understand that when the Hadith says the Prophet (saww) or Amir al-Mu'mineen (as) used to break their fast with some sweet/date/milk/water, it is not that they would _begin_ with that; it was ALL they used to have for ifTar unlike the lavish spread of food we consume. So no mention of salt does not mean that it was not what they would begin with. If you look at the account of the night of Darbah of the Imam, there is mention of salt at ifTar.

Nothing "Pakistani" about it.
