Raisins are dried grapes. This dried fruit is rich in sugars and calories that help build the body.
Ibn-Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, said: “Raisins were soaked in water for the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him. He would drink from it on the same day, the following day, and the day after it until the evening of the third day. Then, he would order it to be drank or spilled.” (Reported by Imam Muslim).Grapes are mentioned 11 times in the Glorious Quran, and raisins are mentioned in Prophet Muhammad’s hadiths related to zakat-ul-fitr (the obligatory alms Muslims pay by the end of the month of Ramadan).
