Is it Sunnah to Eat Sweets after a Meal?
Posted: 28 Muharram 1431, 14 January 2010
Q.Quite often people say it is sunnah to eat sweets after a meal. Is this true?
A.During the time of Rasulullah, the luxury of eating a sweet dish at every meal did not exist. Rather, there were times at which months would go by in which the stove/fire did not burn in the house of Rasulullah. However, some narrations suggest that at times Rasulullah had dates either before or after the meal. Based on this, having something sweet could be considered to be established at times before, and at times after the meal. However, this is not a regular or emphasized Sunnah or practice of the Holy Prophet.
And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
