Assalamualaikum.wrwb …. because many teman2 of this MBSTW who are interested and want to know the real man who really follows the admin share from a web may be useful. Aamiin …
SHORT again Ramadan. In the month of fasting, we often hear
the phrase `break your fast with sweet foods or drinks,
he said. That said, it exemplified the Prophet. Is that right?
From Anas bin Malik, he said: “It is the Messenger of breaking with
Rutab (dates are mushy) before prayer, if there are no Rutab,
then he is breaking with Tamr (dried dates), then if there is no
dried dates, he took a sip of water. (Hadith reported by Ahmad and Abu Dawood)
Prophet Muhammad said: “If you break the fast one, then
let break the fast with dates. Suppose that you do not get it,
then berbukalah with water, then indeed it was holy water. ”
Well. Rasulullah break the fast with dates. If you do not get dates,
he break the fast with water. `Is it the same with the sweetness of dates
sweet? No. Dates are complex carbohydrates (complex
carbohydrate). Instead, the sugar found in foods or
drink sweet things that we usually consume as food
iftar, are simple carbohydrates (simple carbohydrate).
Whence a habit of breaking with that sweet? No
clear. Delusions flourish so common in society, as if
breaking fast with sweet foods or beverages is sunnah
Prophet. Well, not exactly. In fact iftar
with sweet foods filled with sugar (carbohydrates
simple) would damage the health.
From the beginning I was intrigued about this, that breaking the fast
`Disunnahkan drinking or eating sweets. short memory
I, the Prophet pointed iftar with dates or water,

so it is not fattening (data here and here). but the date palm
that was imported into Indonesia in packs in the month of Ramadan

This fact plus the amount of sugar, which many times the levels in order

the price may be very expensive.
Why break the fast with sweet actually damage your health?
When fasting blood sugar level goes down. Dates, as
Exemplary Prophet, are complex carbohydrates instead of sugar
(Simple carbohydrates). Complex carbohydrates, to be
glycogen, so take time to be processed. Conversely, if
eating sweets, blood sugar levels will spike,
directly. Bum. Very unhealthy. If complex carbohydrates such as
The original dates, rising slowly.
Let’s talk `glycemic index (glycemic index / GI) only. glycemic
Index (GI) is the rate of change in food is converted into sugar in
body. The higher the glycemic index of the food, the faster
The food is converted into sugar, thus the body more quickly
also produces an insulin response.
Practitioners fitness or healthy lifestyle decision, it would be
avoid foods that have a high glycemic index. As much as
maybe they will eat a low glycemic index.
Why? Due to the higher insulin response of the body, then the body more
accumulating fat. Accumulation of body fat is the most avoidable
Well, if you run a day on an empty stomach, then immediately flooded
with sugar (food that is very, very high glycemic index),
so the insulin response in the body immediately jumped. With
Thus, the body will be very quick to respond to hoard fat.
I never asked about it to a Sufi by
God `ilm about health matters of human bodies. He said, when
iftar, do not eat anything first. Drink a glass of water,
the maghrib prayer. After prayers, eat rice as usual. Do not

Great, dates that exist in Indonesia is `candied dates, not

Why rice? LHA, rice is a complex carbohydrate. It takes time to
processed in the body, so the response of insulin in the body is not
soaring. Because the insulin response is not high, the tendency
body to save fat are also low.
This is why, a lot of people in the month of fasting which is precisely
increased fat in the fat storage areas: the abdomen,
waist, buttocks, thighs, triceps, cheeks, and so forth. That
because immediately flood the body with insulin, through eating
sweet, allowing the body to store fat, but muscle is being
shrinking because of fasting.
No wonder that our bodies during Ramadan even more visible
like `pear, full of fat in the waist area. Because the general supposition
people who thought that breaking with a sweet tooth
is sunnah, then fasting instead of nourish us. Many
the fasting month became weak, drowsy, or even
getting fat because most sugar. Because misunderstood the hadith
above, then the effect `diligent fasting = diligent breaking with sugar.
Deviated little from the topic of the blog ya. Dikit wrote.
For friends who want to be thin: do not diet (in the sense of
reduce the frequency of eating). Diet actually adds to the tendency of the body
to save the fat for `dilaparkan. When the diet is food
do not get in, but once the food comes in, the body’s tendency to
store fat from food is even greater.

The body’s insulin response improved if:

(2) The higher the GI (Glycemic Index) carbohydrates are consumed,

as recommended by the Prophet and Sufi said, I usually drink a glass

as much as possible with a portion of carbohydrate-protein-fats water
proportional. And certainly not for `revenge for fasting
a day. This is precisely the time necessary to train against
the passion of lust `eat as full-kenyangny a. Learn patience.
Back to the topic.
So, I guess, “berbukalah with a sweet tooth” it is
conclusions too hastily on the hadith about breaking
above. Because sweet taste of dates, it appears the assumption that
(Sunnah) should break the fast with a sweet tooth. Eventually
This conclusion became delusional and instil a culture of iftar
wrong in society. Clearly, `berbukalah with the
Sweet was disseminated by advertising slogan aplenty
food company in the holy month of Ramadan.
However, if there are among the friends who find
clear hadith that the Prophet had instructed breaking
with a sweet tooth, please written in the comments below, yes.
I, probably also the other companions, eager to know.
Hopefully not inedible general supposition `berbukalah with sweet. Or
better yet, do not easily ingested common delusions about religion.
First check the truth.
If you want to be healthy, just follow the Prophet said: “Eat only when
hungry, and stop eating before satiety. “Also, the contents of third
stomach with food, one-third water, and the remaining third
leave it blank.
“We (Muslims) are a people who when it was hungry
then eat, and when eating until full, “said
“No one container was filled out by the Children of Adam, worse
rather than his stomach. Suffice it to him a few mouthfuls to strengthen
spine to be erect. If unavoidable,
suffice third for his food, a third for his drink,
and one third for his breath. “(Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and Ibn
Hibbaan in Saheeh sourced from Miqdam bin Madi Kasib)
