Introduce LIVE FOOD intake into our RAMADAN DIET



Live food refers to all foods that Allah (SWT) has gifted us naturally from the ground, ready to Eat and Cook. No need for modern Processing, Preservatives, Machines and Factories.

Did you ever realize that during the time of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) there were no Fridges and Freezes? Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) preferred to eat Live, Simple Uncomplicated food that was easily available and required minimal preparation. These included:

Fruits & Vegetables
Nuts and Seeds
Beans and Lentils
Unpasteurized Milk
Non-GMO Whole Unrefined Grains – Barley & Wheat
Meat and Poultry

Our bodies and brains will express delight at receiving real food after several hours of fasting. So ensure you are organized this Ramadhaan and prepare a wholesome well balanced menu plan.

Good Ideas For SUHOOR/SEHRI Would Include:

Dates stuffed with Almonds.

Raisins consumed whole or in a Sunnah drink known as “Nabeedh”.

Sliced Seasonal Fruit or Fruit Smoothies incorporating Nuts & Seeds.

Eggs & Beans or Lentils.

Wholegrain Cereals – Barley & Oats. (Barley was a staple in our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) diet consumed as “Talbinah”)

Good Ideas For IFTAAR Would Include:

Fresh or Dry Dates.

Date, Avocado or Strawberry Shakes. (Remember to avoid adding refined sugars. Rather make use of raw honey)

Attractive Fruit Platters or individual skewers served with a drizzling of Honey & a sprinkle of Cinnamon.

Freshly squeezed seasonal Fruit Juice.

Vegetable Sticks & Olives served with Yoghurt or Hummus & Dukkah or Zaatar Spice Blends.

Assorted Salads – Cabbage, Carrot, Beetroot, Apple, Avocado Salads.

Wholesome Broths/ Soups/ Haleem cooked with Meat, Lentils and Wholegrains. Similar to a Broth made with Barley called “Sawiq” consumed by our Noble Prophet (Peace be upon him).

Rice and Meat dishes.

Remember to use Beneficial Cooking Fats as used by our Noble Prophet (peace be upon him).

- Olive Oil, Ghee, Butter & Fat from Meat.

- Other beneficial Fats to include would be Organic Coconut Oil, Avocado or Macadamia Oils.

In conclusion, remember processed food, laden with sugars and harmful fats offers minimal nutrition (causing malnutrition), requires increased effort by the body to digest and is detrimental to health. We need to consume foods that are closest to their natural state, as the Quraan beautifully describes :

“Oh mankind! Eat of that which is lawful and good on earth, and follow not the the footsteps of Shaitaan (Satan). Verily, he is to you an open enemy.”
(Quraan 2:168)

With a healthy body and mind, the quality of our Fasting, Salaah and all other Ibaadat (worship) will increase In Sha Allah. Fasting is indeed Food for the Soul and Healing for the Body!
