Tamr
Dates, Victoria Park Western Australia
The month of Ramadhan will always be associated with tamr or dates. Maybe it just likes Chinese whom are well allied with mandrin orange during the Chinese New Year.
We may note that the Sunnah commends dates for the breaking of the fast in Ramadhan. The great worth of dates is also indicated in a famous and beautiful passage of the Qur'an, surah Maryam, verses 25-6:
"And shake towards you the trunk of the palm-tree and it will drop on you fresh ripe dates. So eat and drink and be comforted".
Personally I don't really like dates because it’s too sweet but I do take it for break fast. Every year, my dad will buy dates for Ramadhan...well its kind of a long established custom in my family. So, during the breakfast, dates will be always on the table. He likes date and as for me, I don't really into it. I think fresh dates suit me better, it’s not too sweet. For this Ramadhan, I'm totally forgotten about dates till a friend of mine gave me a box of it. JazakaAllah khir to my friend!!! So, there is no reason for not taking dates for breaking fast..ahaks…

I do agree with you, the fresh dates are tastier as they aren't too sweet,but I guess since we don't have the fresh one's..it doesn't matter isn't it!

The benefits pretty the same whether fresh or not coz it contains
both glucose and sucrose and easily digested just nice for break fast when our stomach are empty!

huhuhu...kita serupa ..ahaks. Kureng sikit dengan kurma tapi kalau ada kurma yang lembut tu boleh jugalah diterima.

Arsaili,

Buah Tamar banyak kelebihannya. Prof Engku Aziz selalu mengamalkan makan buah tamar bukan saja di bulan puasa tetapi juga di bulan2 lain. Lihatlah beliau masih cergas hingga kini. Tamar kaya dengan serat dan vitamin lain.

Berlainan dirumah abang long. Sekali hadap, hampir sekotak. Jadi terpaksa beli berkotak - kotak. Alhamdulillah, tahun ini ramai pula yang beri percuma. Jadi yang dapat pahala ramai, yang merasa pun ramai ....ALHAMDULILLAH.

semua suka kurma ya...tapi saya tak suka kurma lembut...suka yg keras dan kering...baru boleh adap sekotak....teringat arwah atuk dulu2...bulan puasa kurma wajib ade dlm menu berbuka.
