    Ajwa Dates

    [​IMG]
    Ajwa (عجوة) is a soft dry variety of date fruit from Saudi Arabia. It is cultivated at the city of Madinah. It is a delightfully soft and fruity date with fine texture.
    In the Islamic hadith literature, Ajwa dates are afforded a great position for their health and protective benefits. "Whoever has seven Ajwa dates every morning he will not be harmed on that day by poison or magic." Sahih al-Bukhari nos. (5445) (5768) (5769) (5779). And also, "Ajwa dates are from paradise. Tirmidhee no. (2068). And referring to eating seven Ajwa dates, the Prophet Muhammad (upon him be prayers and salutations), "He will not be harmed by anything until he reaches the evening." Sahih Muslim no. (2047).

    The Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said,

    “Whoever has seven Ajwa dates every morning he will not be harmed on that day by poison or magic.” [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (5445) (5768) (5769) (5779)].

    This Ahadith is further substantiated by Sahih Muslim in the following narration-

    Referring to eating seven Ajwa dates, the Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said,

    “He will not be harmed by anything until he reaches the evening.” [Saheeh Muslim (2047)].

    In another Ahadith, The Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said,

    “Ajwa dates are from paradise.” [Tirmidhee (2068)].

    According to Arab News.

    "The history of Ajwa dates goes back to 5000 BC and it’s the part of Tibwi Nabvi, the Medical practice of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) through plants, where Ajwa date has prominence.

    There are several references in Hadith and Islamic historical literature about Ajwa. Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) said that “One who takes seven Ajwa dates in the morning, he remains under the protection of Allah from magic and poison for whole of the day".

    As many as seven Ajwa dates comprise 120 calories. Those who have made it a habit to take 5 to 7 Ajwa dates without fail everyday are less susceptible to carcinoma and circulatory diseases. The Ajwa dates are fraught with 70 percent of sugar and 30 percent of floric acid, sulphur, protein, copper, iron fibre and potassium.
    Many strongly believe in remedial therapy in Ajwa as it was advocated by none other Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), specially women believes that it prevent black magic, most of women Haj pilgrims prefer to take Ajwa dates with them meant for presenting gift to their near and dear one who are suffering with various illness.
    There are few farms that harvesting Ajwa in holy city of Madinah itself within the boundary Haram. There is a large farm of Ajwa located Nearby Quba mosque. A lot more farms are located on outskirts and surrounding villages of the holy city.

    The history of Ajwa dates goes back to 5000 BC. A female tree of Ajwa dates has the potential to yield 170 pounds of this delicious fruit each year. As many as seven Ajwa dates comprise 120 calories. Those who have made it a habit to take 5 to 7 Ajwa dates without fail everyday are less susceptible to carcinoma and circulatory diseases.

    The Ajwa dates are fraught with 70 percent of sugar and 30 percent of floric acid, sulphur, protein, copper, iron fibre and potassium."
