Dating in Ramadan

27 09 2007

Normally I do not have many dates but Ramadan is a different matter altogether. In Ramadan I have this sudden urge to have dates and even breaking my fast with a date. There are a lot of people out there who like hot dates but I am not one of them. I prefer dates who are sweet. Also there is no harm in having the same types of dates on consecutive days but I prefer to have different types of dates and from different countries. I think variety makes Ramadan exciting. As Muslims we should not discriminate amongst dates of different nationalities and so I do not discriminate between different dates and especially not in Ramadan. I say give me French dates, Pakistani dates, Chinese dates, American dates, Arab dates, Persian dates and if there are mixed dates then that is even better. In some cases the person who is arranging for the dates for iftar may not have seen the date but that is fine with me because I do not have any problem with blind dates.

So the other I was at this iftar event and then I saw one of the brothers who was taking care of the food. I approached him and asked, “Brother can you please hook me up with some dates?” He was flabbergasted at first but soon regained his composure and said, “Astagfirullah.” My reply was, “Did I say something wrong? Come on brother, there is no harm in a date, especially in Ramadan.” Now he was visibly annoyed but did not say anything, well if he did not want to give me any dates then that was his choice I can try other venues. So I headed toward the sisters section and asked one of the sisters to arrange for a date.
