(Sharing it again this year)
As Ramadan's ahead, lets try this drink called Nabeez (Nabidh), a drink that Holy Prophet (PBUH) used to consume back in the days. Made with water, raisins (kishmish) and dates, its an alkalizing tonic having the tendency to remove acidity from the stomach and digestive system and it also helps to remove other metabolic wastes from the body. It improves digestion as it's high in soluble fibre and it strengthens the memory. It assists the spleen function, liver, throat, chest and prostate, and so is particularly good for men. Also to let you guys know, Nabeez will also benefit patients of Arthritis and elevated levels of Uric Acid (gout) and making Nabeez is simple too. Just as simple as soaking the dates (or raisins/sultanas) overnight and drinking the water in which they were soaked in the morning, but when it is embraced and honoured as one of the great Sunnahs of our Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the idea behind soaking dates or raisins in water is so that they sweeten the water and become softened. Softened dates/raisins release their vitamins and minerals more easily and are easier to digest. Please do remember that Nabeez should be consumed within 12 hours of soaking time, but if it is kept air tight inside the refrigerator, it will not spoil for 2-3 days.
Also, please make sure that once you prepare this drink, it should not be kept after more than 2-3 days, otherwise it may start to ferment, which is the start of the alcohol brewing process. Let's try this! :)
