Iftar – Breaking Fast with Majhūl Dates..!


Maghrib Sunset Time arrives in Toronto Metropolitan Area

On The Day of Arafah,

9th of Dhul Hijjah 1444,

And I can finally bite into my THIRD Majhūl Date of the day!

But I was Fasting,

So how can this be my “Third” Majhūl Date?

Because this morning before Fajr,

I already had not One,

but TWO Majhūl Dates

For Sahoor.

I intended on only having ONE,

But these are more addictive than potato chips,

And I had to have TWO,

I could not stop at One.

And then…

Just like that it was Fajr time,

and I couldn’t have Three Majhūl Dates for Sahoor even if I wanted to,

And I wanted to,

I simply had to wait for Sunset to arrive on one of the longest days of the year in the northern hemisphere at this latitude.


The entire Day of Arafah,

I kept looking forward to breaking my Fast with another Majhūl Date.

As ~9:05 p.m. EDT approached,

I dialled up MeemTV’s IPTV channel as they usually livestream Adhan Al Maghrib according to Toronto Local Time,

Theirs is the Adhan you hear in the background of this video.


Majhūl Date with coconut shavings and tasty filling with a glass of Rooh Afzah made with milk was my Iftar for and on this Day of Arafah 1444 Fast.

Majhūl Dates:

“Love at First Bite,”

No kidding,
