*Everyone knows dates mean Ramadaan!*
I mentioned elsewhere that Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم would break his fast with dates and so Muslims the world over follow this tradition of his when breaking their fast. Dates come in many shapes, sizes, colours and varieties. Some are soft and squidgy, while some are firmer and drier. Some are just dates (the way I like it best personally :)), while other types can be stuffed (e.g. with almonds) or coated (e.g. with chocolate!). Whichever variety of dates we break our fast with in my household, year upon year our dates have one thing in common and 2012 is no different.
….don’t support the Israeli occupation of Palestine!
(Do your dates come from Israel?)
May the Lord of the Worlds return peace, security and ease to the land of Palestine and our brothers and sisters there. Ameen.
