Having high medical and nutritious value, dates are expected to be the best food for the future. Dates contain as high a percentage as 88% of carbohydrate (starch), (2.5-5%) of fat, (2.3-5.6%) of Protein and (6.4-11.5%) of Vitamins and dietary fibre. The flesh contains (0.2 - 5%) of oil, whereas the seed's weight is (7.7 -9.7%) oil. The weight of the seed is (6.6 - 14.2%) of the date's weight.
It was the practice of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to strive during the last 10 days of Ramadaan like no other time, to spend the night in prayer, supplication and recitation of the Qur'an. He also used to wake his family up to do the same.
Abu Hurayrah said that the Prophet (PBUH) said: "Whoever stays up and prays on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven."
(Hadith - Bukhari & Muslim)
Thus, the Muslim should make good use of the last 10 nights of Ramadaan and spend them in prayer and remembering Allah. We do not know for certain which night Laylat al-Qadr is, but the odd-numbered nights in the last 10 days are the most likely according to the hadith: However, the timing of the night Laylat al-Qadr has not been narrated with certainty, and its timing may not be the same every year. The wisdom in this is that the Muslims will be more inclined to devote themselves in worship during the whole last 10 days, rather just on one night, as would be the case if its timing were known for certain.
"Seek it in the odd nights of the last third of Ramadan."
(Hadith - Bukhari)
The night of the 27th of Ramadaan (ie the night before the fast of the day of the 27th of Ramadaan) has been narrated as being Laylat al-Qadr.
Zurr ibn Hubaysh said: "I heard Ubayy ibn Ka'b saying - and it was said to him that 'Abd-Allaah ibn Mas'ood said:' Whoever follows the Sunnah will 'catch' Laylat al-Qadr! '- Ubayy said: 'May Allah have mercy on him, he did not want people to take it for granted and only stay up to pray on one night. By the One besides Whom there is no other god, it is in Ramadaan - he was swearing without a doubt - and by Allah, I do know which night it is. It is the night in which the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) commanded us to pray (qiyaam). It is the night the morning of which is the twenty seventh , and the sign of it is that the sun rises on that morning white and without rays. '"
