The physical bounties
The Qur’an mentions a number of fruits as examples of the bounties of Allah, which you can include in your diet. They are:
Dates: Mentioned in the Qur’an 20 times, dates are packed with energy and provide instant nutrition. It is recommended to have an odd number at Iftar.
Olives: The oliveis mentioned as ‘a blessed tree,’ which Allah takes an oath by. Have fresh olivesor use extra virgin olive oil as a substitute for unhealthy fats.
Plant an olive tree for just £20 and give generations of Palestinian farmers a source of income again.
Pomegranates: Pomegranates strengthen digestion. They contain antioxidants and are rich in vitamins. Have a handful at Suhur to increase the nutritional value of your early morning meal.
Figs: They are excellent sources of fibre, helping promote a healthy digestive function. Include fresh or dried figs as part of your Suhur and among other health benefits, they will prevent constipation during your fasting day.
