Nabeez+-+Prophet+Drink.jpg

Nabeez [Nabidh] was one of the drinks consumed by the Holy Prophet (SallaLlahu alaihi wasallam).

 

In his time, it was typically made with dates or raisins and water. 

 

It is an alkalizing tonic, having the tendency to remove acidity from the stomach and digestive system and it also helps to remove other metabolic wastes from the body.

 

It improves digestion as it’s high in soluble fiber and it strengthens the memory.

 

It assists the spleen function, liver, throat, chest and prostate, and so is particularly good for men.

 

Nabeez will also benefit patients of Arthritis and elevated levels of Uric Acid (gout).

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

Ajwa Dates or any other dates available

Water 1 glass

Honey 1 tsp

 

METHOD:

 

Soak dates overnight in a covered container.

 

You can soak MUNAKA OR GOLDEN RASIN also instead of dates.

 

Remove seeds next day and grind dates with water, you can add honey too.

 

Strain and serve.

 

You can drink water without grinding dates.

 

Eat dates separately.

 

An ideal drink for Ramazan that will boost u.

This post contains following topics

1) Common mistakes in Ramadan

2) Helpful things in Ramadan and Fasting

3) Things To Be Avoided During Ramadan

 

1) Common mistakes in Ramadhan:

 

1. Drinking Milkshakes made with syrups etc on a daily basis

- Why Don't: It contains high amounts of sugar, additives  and colourants

- Solution: If you have to, drink it twice a week maximum

 

2. Drinking large amounts of water at iftaar time

- Why this mistake: Filling the stomach with water is more strenuous to it than with food. 

- Solution: have a few sips at iftaar then a glass after every two hours.

 

3. Exercising directly after iftaar.

- Why this mistake: the body's blood flow is concentrated around the stomach at that time.

- Solution: Exercise after two hours of eating to ease digestion.

 

4. Chewing and swallowing food fast.

- Why this mistake: chewing food slowly can speed up digestion and help maintain your weight

 

5. Having dessert directly after iftaar

- Why this mistake: they make you drowsy and sleepy 

- Solution: leave at least a two hour gap between iftaar and dessert to stay fresh and awake for ishaa and taraweeh prayers

 

6. Consuming foods with high amounts of sodium

- Why this mistake: Sodium triggers thirst through out the fasting hours of the day

- Solution: instead, eat foods that are high in potassium, they retain water and supress your thirst.

 

2) Helpful things in Ramadan and Fasting

 

# Bananas are high in potassium. A banana at Suhoor time can control your thirst level through out the day.

 

# Best sources of potassium for Suhoor time: 

 - bananas

 - milk

 - dates

 - avocados

 - dried peaches

 - pistachios

 - pumpkin

 - peas

 - dark chocolate

 

# Worst choices for Suhoor: 

 - biryani

 - kebab

 - pizza

 - fast food in general

 - cheese

 - haleem

 

# Best choices for Suhoor: 

 - potato

 - rice

 - dates

 - whole grain bread

 - banana

 

# Drinking lots of water at suhoor is important, but not as much as drinking it through out your non-fasting hours.

 

3) Things To Be Avoided During Ramadan

 

1. Don't sleep during the day and pray all night. By doing this you are converting the day into night and the night into day, which is not the purpose of fasting.

 

2. Avoid being lazy and inactive during the day.

 

3. Don't waste time playing games during the day. Rather, please Allah by increasing in your worship of him.

 

4. Avoid having Iftar parties. Ramadan wasn't meant to be a food extravaganza.

 

5. Dont ask and let your mother or wife to spend Ramadan in the Kitchen. Eat something light and quick. Let her also make Du'a n utilize the month of forgiveness.

 

6. Spend the last 10 days worshipping Allah rather than trying to prepare for Eid! A day that is better than a thousand months is in these last 10 days. You can't afford to miss this.

 

7. Dont stay awake the full night. Your body has a right over you, and when it wants rest, then rest.

 

8. Avoid excessive socialising after Taraweeh

 

9. Avoid shopping a lot in Ramadhaan.

 

10. Dont eat the full night.

 

11. Dont loiter around at night rather than worshipping Allah.

 

12. Eid doesnt require loads of preparation. Dont fall into this trap! Keep it simple, and it will be blessed.

 

May we avail this Ramadan with sound health and with loved one family - Aameen....

Just in case if Arabic characters appearing as ????? in your column and if you are using MySql DB along with .NET Provider, 

Check below properties of schema, table and column and connectionstring that use to connect to DB

  1. DEFAULT_CHARACTER_SET_NAME = utf8
  2. DEFAULT_COLLATION_NAME = utf8_general_ci
  3. TABLE_COLLATION = utf8_general_ci
  4. COLLATION_NAME = utf8_general_ci
  5. CHARACTER_SET_NAME = utf8
  6. .NET Connection string set to have = 'charset=utf8'

 

Connection string example

'datasource=<server>;port=3306;username=<userid>;password=<password>;sslmode=none;database=<dbname>;charset=utf8'

 

Queries that may help to find above information are 

SELECT * FROM information_schema.SCHEMATA S

WHERE schema_name = "<database-name>";

 

SELECT * FROM information_schema.`TABLES` T,

information_schema.`COLLATION_CHARACTER_SET_APPLICABILITY` CCSA

WHERE CCSA.collation_name = T.table_collation

AND T.table_schema = "<database-name>"

AND T.table_name = "<table-name>";

  

SELECT * FROM information_schema.`COLUMNS` C

WHERE table_schema = "<database-name>"

AND table_name = "<table-name>"

AND column_name = "<column-name>";
