During the holy month of Ramadan, recipes – especially for Suhur – are currently very popular. Also, during Ramadan usually there are simple meals that provide a lot of energy.
This year the Nabeez drink is very popular, and this drink was a favorite drink to the Prophet Muhammad SAWW. The recipe drew a lot of attention because of its benefits.
In the book of drinks from Sunan Abu Dawood, the Apostle of Allah he said from the grapes to make raisins. To steep grapes in the early morning and drink the raisins in the evening.
And also steep them in evening and drink during the morning. To steep only in skin vessels and not in an earthen jar because it will become vinegar.
On a different occasion following the saying by Ibn’abbas- once Nabidh prepared for SAWW – Allah’s Messenger at the beginning of the night and he drink it in the morning. If anything was left out, it would be poured out.
Note: Use either raisins or dates, but not the 2 ingredients in combination.
- Take a handful of raisins or 6 to 7 dates (Ajwa)
- You will need 6 to 8 oz of water.
- Next, after the Isha prayer time, take the raisins or dates and put them in the water.
- Let it soak overnight till the Fajr. Make sure to be at a room temperature.
- Remove the ingredient you added and drink the water.
Remember not to leave it to soak more that 2 or 3 days because that might cause the process of alcohol brewing. You can serve Nabeez to guests instead of tea.
