Question: What does the Ahadith say about eating seven Ajwa dates?

Answer: The Ajwa dates of Madinah Munawwarah have been blessed with special benefits:

1. “He who has a morning meal of seven ‘ajwa dates will not suffer harm that day through poison or magic.” (Bukhari, Hadith 5327 and Muslim, Hadith 3814)

2. ‘Aisha reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “The ‘ajwah dates of al-‘Aliya contain healing, and they are an antidote (when taken as) first thing in the morning.” (Muslim, Hadith 3815)

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
