THE LANDMARK DATE PALM TREES AROUND RASOULOULLAH SWALALLAHOU `ALAIHI WASALLAM.(Edited)

In the scriptures revealed by Allah Ta`ala before Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi were the landmarks to find the place and recognize Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. Reported in Ahmad that Hazrat Salmaan Farsi ra learnt these 3 landmarks and distinguished qualities of Rasouloullah SAW:  

1. Between two lava plains, plenty of date palm trees.

2. The prophet will accept gifts, but will refuse Sadaqahs/donation.

3. He will have a mark of sealed of prophets on the back of his shoulders.

مسند أحمد ط الرسالة – (39 / 144)

وَلَكِنَّهُ قَدْ أَظَلَّكَ زَمَانُ نَبِيٍّ هُوَ مَبْعُوثٌ بِدِينِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ يَخْرُجُ بِأَرْضِ الْعَرَبِ، مُهَاجِرًا إِلَى أَرْضٍ بَيْنَ حَرَّتَيْنِ بَيْنَهُمَا نَخْلٌ، بِهِ عَلَامَاتٌ لَا تَخْفَى: يَأْكُلُ الْهَدِيَّةَ، وَلَا يَأْكُلُ الصَّدَقَةَ، بَيْنَ كَتِفَيْهِ خَاتَمُ النُّبُوَّةِ، فَإِنْ اسْتَطَعْتَ أَنْ تَلْحَقَ بِتِلْكَ الْبِلَادِ فَافْعَل 

So date palm trees were the landmark of recognizing the venue of Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam.

The example of the beneficial existence of a muslim is alike the most beneficial tree: The date palm tree.(Tafseer Jalalein/Qurtubi)

[سورة إبراهيم (14): الآيات 24 الى 25]

أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ ضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلًا كَلِمَةً طَيِّبَةً كَشَجَرَةٍ طَيِّبَةٍ أَصْلُهَا ثَابِتٌ وَفَرْعُهَا فِي السَّمَاءِ (24) تُؤْتِي أُكُلَهَا كُلَّ حِينٍ بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهَا وَيَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ (25) 

Allah Ta`ala says: ‘’Have you not seen how Allah has set forth a comparison parable: A good word is like a good tree, having its root firm and its branches in the sky. It brings its fruits at all times with the will of its Lord. Allah sets forth the parables for the people, so that they may take lesson.(14:24-25)

تفسير الجلالين -)

{ أَلَمْ تَرَ } تنظر { كَيْفَ ضَرَبَ الله مَثَلاً } ويبدل منه { كَلِمَةً طَيّبَةً } أي ( لا إله إلا الله ) { كَشَجَرةٍ طَيّبَةٍ } هي النخلة { أَصْلُهَا ثَابِتٌ } في الأرض { وَفَرْعُهَا } غصنها { فِى السماء } ؟

{ تُؤْتِى } تعطي { أُكُلُهَا } ثمرها { كُلَّ حِينٍ بِإِذْنِ رَبّهَا } بإرادته كذلك كلمة الإِيمان ثابتة في قلب المؤمن وعمله يصعد إلى السماء ويناله بركته وثوابه كل وقت { وَيَضْرِبُ } يبيّن { الله الأمثال لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ } يتّعظون فيؤمنون .

صحيح البخاري – (17 / 76)

حدثنا عمر بن حفص بن غياث حدثنا أبي حدثنا الأعمش قال حدثني مجاهد عن عبد الله بن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال

بينا نحن عند النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم جلوس إذا أتي بجمار نخلة فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم إن من الشجر لما بركته كبركة المسلم فظننت أنه يعني النخلة فأردت أن أقول هي النخلة يا رسول الله ثم التفت فإذا أنا عاشر عشرة أنا أحدثهم فسكت فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم هي النخلة

Hazrat Ibn Umar ra said: ‘’While we were sitting with the Prophet, the heart of palm tree(palm pith) was brought to him. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Amongst the trees, there is a such a tree that is as blessed as a Muslim”… “It is the date-palm tree,

So the best tree is the date palm tree. Alike it, the muslim should try to benefit others in all senses. The trunk of date palm tree was used as pillars for Masjid and houses, its branches as roof, its fibrous matter as filling for pillows, sweet dates and heart healthy for human body.

It is the best fruit. Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said:’’Dates are best Sehri.’’(Tabrani)

المعجم الكبير – الطبراني – (6 / 290)

الْفَضْلِ الأَسْفَاطِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا خَالِدُ بن يَزِيدَ الْعُمَرِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا يَزِيدُ بن عَبْدِ الْمَلِكِ النَّوْفَلِيُّ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنِ السَّائِبِ بن يَزِيدَ، قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ:”نِعْمَ السُّحُورُ التَّمْرُ”.

When on long journeys, lacking food, Sahabahs used to live on one date for whole day, chewing its pit for energy whole day. At Iftaar, Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam used to eat a few dates and drink water.

So those who have difficulties for long fasting hours, they should try lots of dates at sehri. Ajwa are best.

For protection against poison and sorcery, Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam advised 7 ajwa dates of Madinah Munawarah on empty stomach in the morning.

صحيح البخاري – (17 / 78)

حدثنا جمعة بن عبد الله حدثنا مروان أخبرنا هاشم بن هاشم أخبرنا عامر بن سعد عن أبيه قال

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من تصبح كل يوم سبع تمرات عجوة لم يضره في ذلك اليوم سم ولا سحر

Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said: ‘’One who daily eat 7 Ajwa dates in the morning, then he will be saved against poison and sorcery.’’(Bukhari)

Mufti Ayub Jina of Madinah said that Ajwa dates reinforce antibodies. Mufti Shakir of Madinah said he took them before covid injection.

Khair, Ajwa of Aliyah farms are the best dates. To have the original Aliyah Ajwa dates, I refer to you a very honest Mowlana Abu Bakr of Madinah: +966500750830.

Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said: ‘’In Ajwa dates of `Aliyah farms, there is cure. And it is an antidote when taken in the morning.’’(Sahih Muslim)

صحيح مسلم – (10 / 360)

وَهُوَ ابْنُ جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ شَرِيكٍ وَهُوَ ابْنُ أَبِي نَمِرٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي عَتِيقٍ عَنْ عَائِشَةَ

أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِنَّ فِي عَجْوَةِ الْعَالِيَةِ شِفَاءً أَوْ إِنَّهَا تِرْيَاقٌ أَوَّلَ الْبُكْرَةِ

And also Mowlana Abu Bakr can bring you also the Barni dates. Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said: ‘’One of the best of your dates are the dates Barni. It cures sickness and it brings no sickness.’’(Mustadrak/Tabrani)

المستدرك على الصحيحين – الحاكم – (17 / 306)

أخبرنا الحسن بن يعقوب العدل ، ثنا يحيى بن أبي طالب ، ثنا زيد بن الحباب ، ثنا سعيد بن سويد السامري ، ثنا خالد بن رباح البصري ، عن أبي الصديق الناجي ، عن أبي سعيد الخدري ، رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : « خير تمراتكم البرني ( يخرج الداء ولا داء فيه »  

Those who have diabetes should follow their advisable diets.

*Amongst the blessings of Makkah Munawarah are the Ka`bah and ZamZam. And Madinah Munawarah has been distinguished with Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam, its shifa earth and its wonderful dates. So bring more ZamZam and Ajwa Aliyah dates when coming back from Umrah. Then try to seed to plant a Ajwa palm tree in your garden.
