The most important month in the Islamic calendar is finally here, which is all about self-improvement, heightened devotion and is basically a time of spiritual reflection and worship.
During the entire month of Ramadan, Muslims fast every day from dawn to sunset, at least for 17 hours a day and keeping in mind the changing times, when the entire world is buzzing with uncertainty and the efforts to cope with Covid-19, health becomes an important factor for everyone to take care of.
As Fasting is all about taking a break from your habits, to cultivate habits that raise you and forego habits that pull you down and there is no questioning the importance of eating a healthy diet. It is all about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and boosting your mood. Good nutrition, physical activity, and healthy body weight are essential parts of a person’s overall health and well-being.
Specially when you are fasting for the whole month, it becomes really necessary for one to start and end the day, with a diet that totally includes all kinds of healthy food and that justifies the reason why dates hold a significant role in this ritualistic fasting of the season, as they are highly nutritious and easily digested, it makes them a perfect food to nourish the body after a day of fasting or even as a pre-dawn Sehri meal. The sweetness in dates keeps your energy level high, and its high fiber content also makes you feel full for a longer time, which is why it is commonly eaten during both Iftar and Sehri.
The spirit of community comes live at Iftar, once the sun sets, evenings are a very social time, with the restaurants booked out far in advance and incredible feasts to break the fast. The previous year, during lockdown people had a total new experience and celebrated the festival like never before.
For all the people who live away from their family have the equal right to enjoy the festive season with all the enthusiasm, last year most of them joined the family gatherings via video calls but it doesn’t fill up for the actual presence of one. Following nothing but humanity it somewhere becomes our responsibility too, if we can bring a big smile on someone’s face just by offering care and sharing food, nothing can be more of a good deed than this. You can help people who stay away from their family, the people who can’t afford to have the nutritious diet while they have to continuously keep working in this month of fasting, by just offering them Apis Dates and even this small gesture from you can make one’s day.
Talking more about the kind of feasting this fasting is naturally accompanied with, in various degrees of richness. The Ramazan spread has to have a little of everything, be it sherbets, fried snacks, soups, gravies with rice dishes to grilled meats, but what owns every gathering table in each household are dates, they are also eaten as a part of Sehri meal but especially during Iftar.
