Revive a Sunnah

In the name of Allah
Revive a Sunnah: Hasten to Break the Fast

The Messenger of Allah (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said:
“The people will continue to be in a good state as long as they hasten the breaking of the fast.” [Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

It was narrated that Anas ibn Maliksaid: “The Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) used to break his fast before praying by eating fresh dates, and if there were no fresh dates he would eat dried dates; if there were no dried dates, he would have a few sips of water.” (al-Sawm, 632; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood, no. 560)

Al-Mubaarakfoori  said in his commentary on the hadeeth: “This indicates the lengths to which the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) went in order to hasten to break his fast.”

So we should break our fast with something small before we pray Maghrib after which we have our meal inshaallah.
