My favourite dates | Benefits of Rihura Ajwa Dates

My favourite dates | Not dating but dates. Don't be mistaken. Okay first let me share a story. I've never really like dates until I started attending boarding school. You know, we're away from home and family thus I learned a lot of things back then. Reminiscing it back, now I'm glad I attended my old school even though I wanted to transfer so bad. But I survived anyway. Alhamdulillah. 

Okay back to my story. There's a moment that will always come back to me every time I eat dates and it took me back down memory lane from the days I was in secondary school. There's nothing special to it but for me, it's one of the most beautiful moments I carved deep inside my heart. It was from that time, the fasting month where we got to eat together in the dining hall. 

The first thing we did after the prayers will always be the dates (we eat, yes). Righ after that you'll hear the sound of the seeds thrown on the plate. I'm sure some of you guys had that memory too. Now that school is over (long ago of course), I started missing each and every moment that I had back in the days. 

Oh, I just wanted to let you know that I am in love with Rihura Ajwa Dates. I am serious!

Craving for dates

Yes, out of all things I am craving for dates. I crave for dates from time to time.


I always crave something sweet but have cut down on chocolates and other sweet things due to some reason. Living away from my family, I didn't really supply myself with various food and eat only what I could grab. Adding more to the level of craving I have for dates. Sometimes you just know that you want it and I know that I need dates.  

Why I love them

It's sweet but not too sweet. The sweetness doesn't make you feel guilty like whenever you eat chocolates or other sweets. If you know what I mean. I'm in love with it. Well, different people may describe it differently but mine is like this. It's unique. 


Yep, I add dates as a snack. Don't get me wrong, it's just for whenever necessary. Eating dates actually helps me with my other food craving. It gives you this satisfaction with every bite. Whenever my cravings come or you know, you just suddenly wanted to eat something you rarely eat, and not having it might make you sad, dates help me solve the problem.
