Iftar of the Day: Chocolate and Nut Stuffed Dates

Chocolate and Nut Stuffed Dates Allah to Z Activity Book

 

Why do Muslims break their fasts with dates? This sweet, sticky and delicious fruit is brimming with nutrients, vitamins and minerals. After a long day of fasting, dates help give immediate energy while digesting slowly. They are commonly eaten at Iftar time everyday during Ramadan, as Prophet Muhammad (SAW) would break his fast with ripe dates before he would pray.
