Dates to be eaten at childbirth

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is there a Hadith that says dates should be eaten at the time of childbirth?



Dates to be eaten at the time of childbirth is recorded as a Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) by Imam Abu Ya’la (rahimahullah) in his Musnad and Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) in Al- Tibb.

(see Majma’uz-Zawa’id vol.5 pg.39; Tanzihush-Shari’ah vol.1 pg.209, vol.2 pg.240; Al-la-alil-Masnu’ah vol.1 pg.156).

Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has declared the chain of Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) as authentic (sahih) as the narrations of Sahih Muslim.

(Al-la-alil-Masnu’ah vol.1 pg.156)

This could also be established from the Quran.

(Surah Maryam verse: 25-26).

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
