 Allah's Messenger said: A family which has dates will not be hungry. Muslim, Narrated Aisha, r.a.

The ajwah dates come from Paradise, and they are a remedy for poison.

Narrated Abu Huraira, Trasmitted Tirmidhi, a hasan tradition

The Prophet said: When one of you is fasting, he should break his fast with dates; but if he cannot get any, then (he should break his fast) with water, for water is purifying. Abud Dawud, Narrated Salman ibn Amir

The Prophet said, "If somebody takes some ‘Ajwa dates every morning, he will not be effected by poison or magic on that day till night." (Another narrator said seven dates).

Bukhari 7:663, Narrated Saud

When one of you fastes, he should break his fast with dates for dates are the source of blessings; but if any of you can't find dates, he should (break his fast with water for water is purification" Bukhari 7:663, Narrated Saud

 

People have been eating dates for more than 4,000 years. As one of the sweetest fruits, dates are rich in carbohydrates and provide your body with a healthy source of energy. When you think of dates, you may think of the dried fruits, but you can also eat fresh dates. With its lower moisture content, the dried date is a more concentrated source of nutrients than the fresh. Knowing the differences between the two types of dates can help you determine which works best in your meal plan.

Fresh vs. Dried

The fresh dates are available soft, semi-soft or dry. The dry fresh date is not the same as the dried date. A dry date simply contains less moisture than a soft date. Fresh dates, if kept in an airtight container, stay fresh for up to 8 months if kept refrigerated, or for up to year in the freezer. A dried date is deliberately dehydrated to remove its moisture. Dried dates have a longer shelf-life than the fresh. Dried dates if refrigerated in an airtight container stay fresh for up to one year, and if in the freezer can last up to five years.

The Known Health Benefits of Dates – What the Date Fruit Has to Offer

Macronutrients

Macronutrients are the nutrients your body needs in the largest amounts, and include protein, fat and carbohydrates. The macronutrient content of fresh dates vs. dried dates are different. While protein and fat only differ slightly, the carbohydrate content doubles in dried dates when compared to fresh. Dried dates are also a better source of fiber. A 3.5 oz. serving of fresh dates contains 1.8 g of protein, 1 g of fat, 37 g of carbohydrates and 3.5 g of fiber. The same size serving of dried dates contains 2.8 g of protein, 0.6 g of fat, 76 g of carbohydrates and 5 g of fiber.

Micronutrients

Micronutrients are nutrients your body needs in smaller quantities, such as vitamins and minerals. Dried dates are a better source of calcium and iron than fresh, but fresh dates are a better source of vitamin C. A 3.5 oz. serving of fresh dates contains 34 mg of calcium, 6 g of iron and 30 mg of vitamin C, and the same size serving of dried dates contains 81 mg of calcium, 8 mg of iron and 0 mg of vitamin C. Vitamin C is a less stable nutrient than either calcium or iron, and is destroyed by both heat and storage.
