The holy month of Ramadan brings us all together as one. Mira has the perfect delicacies for you and your loved ones, and the perfect gift to give during a gathering or an Iftar;
The importance of dates during the holy month of Ramadan is widely recognized, as almost everyone breaks their fast with a piece of dates; and what better than breaking your fast with premium dates from the heart of Afghanistan? As dates are referred to as the snack that plays a role in nourishing our bodies and replenishing our energy levels; have you ever asked yourself why is it that dates are such a beloved food during this holy month?
For so long, dates have been an essential part of the Middle Eastern and North African diet and culture. In this region, the date palm, is referred to as the "Tree of Life", where they have referred to it as the symbol of abundance and fertility. In addition, the people in this region have used dates for both food and medicinal purposes. In the Islamic tradition, it is believed that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) broke his fast with dates and water, and this practice has been carried on by Muslims for centuries.
On the other hand, it is important to mention the different health benefits dates hold and why they should be part of everybody’s daily diet. First dates are an excellent source of energy and essential nutrients. They are high in fiber, which helps in digestion and promotes feelings of fullness, and they are also rich in vitamins and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, and iron. Dates are also low in fat and have a low glycemic index, which means they are digested slowly and provide a steady source of energy without causing spikes in blood sugar levels.
Nevertheless, dates have a special significance for Muslims during Ramadan. Breaking the fast with dates is seen as a way to honor the traditions of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and to connect with the spiritual aspects of the fast. The sweetness of the dates also serves as a reminder of the blessings of God and the importance of gratitude.
