Why do Muslims eat dates during Ramadan?

 

Dates are a staple fruit of the Middle-East that have been consumed for thousands of years. It is widely known as a traditional food eaten by Muhammad when he broke his fast. Due to this, Muslims consume dates to break their fast during Ramadan. Muslims are required to fast for a month; due to this, their bodies will become weak, along with minor headaches, dehydration and low blood sugar by sunset. In order to avoid these problems, dates are consumed as they are believed to be rich with fibre, sugar, magnesium, potassium and carbohydrates. The carbohydrates found in dates can provide extra energy too.
