Benefit: Actualise the Sunnah - Break Your Fast With Dates
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
We would like to shed light on an error many of those who break their fasts fall into, due to their lack of attention. It is that people have become accustomed to breaking fast by drinking. They may drink milk with dates while milk is a liquid and dates are solids. Liquids enter the stomach before dates. Therefore, what has he broken his fast with, with milk not dates. So make sure to eat, chew and swallow dates (first) so that they can reach your stomach, so that you may be one who actualises the Prophetic Sunnah.
