Ajwa Al Madinah


The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, “If somebody takes seven Ajwa dates in the morning, neither magic nor poison will hurt him that day.” (Sahih Bukhari: Vol 7, Book 71, Number 664)

Aisha reported Allah’s Messenger sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, “The Ajwa dates of Aliya (village near Madinah) contain heating effects and these are antidote in the early morning.” (Sahih Muslim: Book 23, Number 5083)

BENEFITS OF DATES The Al Ajwa Dates are rich in minerals like Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Fiber, Proteins & Vitamins.

Because of the above hadiths I like to buy ajwa dates. I usually buy all of my dates from Al Awani Dates which is one of the largest date companies here in Saudi. Unfortantely, they are also the most expensive dates on the market. For 400 grams the ajwa is sr60 when the same size of the sukary is only sr20. Ajwa dates are dark, have lines, not too soft and are pretty sweet.

  • Ajwa is actually the only khajoor I eat. I love their firmness and five years back when we went for Umrah, I ate more of them in ever in my life.

    • I know they were The Prophet’s sallallahu alaihi wasallam favorite as well. I like them, but they are too sweet for me and a bit hard. I love sukary though hehe.

  • I <3 ajwaaa

  • As-Salaamu Alaykum,

    I’ve never had these but recently tried medjool and love them.
