The following are among the fruit that Rasulullah ﷺ is reported to have consumed in his lifetime:
1. Fresh dates.
2. Dry dates.
Nabi ﷺ would enjoy grapes.
Melons as well as fresh dates are reported to be from the most beloved of fruit to Rasulullah ﷺ.
Rasulullah ﷺ would relish this. He would at times prefer to have it with a bit of salt.
Sayyidunna Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu’anhuma) is reported to have commented that in each pomegranate there is a seed from Jannah.
(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 5 pg. 45)
In fact, the Quran states that pomegranates will be among the fruit of Jannah.
(Surah Ar-Rahman: 68)
Refer for the above list to: Subulul Huda war Rashad, vol. 7 pgs. 204-209.
When eating the above fruit, one should also intend to emulate Sayyiduna Nabi ﷺ.
