Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) used to plant date trees himself. Dates should be eaten with almonds to annul any adverse effects. Fresh dates should also be eaten at the time of childbirth. It helps increasing the blood and weight as well and good for anemic.
The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said:
“He who eats seven ‘Ajwa dates every morning, will not be affected by poison or magic on the day he eats them.”
