Is it Sunnah to Eat Sweets after a Meal?

By Mufti Shafiq Jakhura


Q.Quite often people say it is sunnah to eat sweets after a meal. Is this true?


A.During the time of RasulullahSall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, 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 RasulullahSall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam. However, some narrations suggest that at times Rasulullah Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam 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 ProphetSall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
