5 – Chapter on the desirability of doing suhur with fine flour, dates, raisins and water



 [ 13066 ] 1 ـ محمد بن الحسن بإسناده عن علي بن الحسن ، عن يعقوب بن يزيد ، عن محمد بن أبي عمير ، عن حفص بن البختري ، عن أبي عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) قال : أفضل سحوركم السويق والتمر . 


1 – Muhammad b. al-Hasan by his isnad from `Ali b. al-Hasan from Ya`qub b. Yazid from Muhammad b. Abi `Umayr from Hafs b. al-Bakhtari from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام.  He said: The best of your suhur is sawiq (barley porridge) and dates.


 [ 13067 ] 2 ـ وعنه ، عن الحسن بن علي بن يوسف ، عن عبدالسلام بن سالم ، عن سيف بن عميرة ، عن عمرو بن شمر ، عن جابر قال : سمعت أبا جعفر ( عليه السلام ) يقول : كان رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ) يفطر على الاسودين ، قلت : رحمك الله وما الاسودان ؟ قال : التمر والماء والزبيب والماء ، ويتسحر بهما . 


2 – And from him from al-Hasan b. `Ali b. Yusuf from `Abd as-Salam b. Salim from Sayf b. `Amira from `Amr b. Shimr from Jabir.  He said: I heard Abu Ja`far عليه السلام saying: The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم would break his fast upon the two blacks (al-aswadayn).  I said: May Allah have mercy on you, and what are the two blacks?  He said: Dates and water, and raisins and water, and he would do suhur with them.


[ 13068 ] 3 ـ محمد بن محمد المفيد في ( المقنعة ) قال : روي عن آل محمد ( عليهم السلام ) أنهم قالوا : يستحب السحور ولو بشربة من الماء . 


3 – Muhammad b. Muhammad al-Mufid in al-Muqni`a said: It is narrated from the Family of Muhammad عليهم السلام that they said: The suhur is desirable even if by a sip of water.


 [ 13069 ] 4 ـ قال : وروي أن أفضله التمر والسويق لموضع استعمال رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ) ذلك في سحوره . 


4 – And it is narrated that the best of it is dates and sawiq due to the position of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم making use of that in his suhur.
