NABEEZ ~ Drink made with soaked resins

اللَّهُمَّ عَذِّبْ الكَفَرَة أهْلِ الكِتَابِ والمُشْرِكينَ الذينَ يَجْحَدُونَ آيَاتِكَ ويُكَذِّبُونَ رُسُلَكَ ويَصُدُّونَ عَن سَبيلكَ ويَتعَدَّوْنَ حُدُودَكَ ويَدْعُونَ مَعَكَ إلـٰـهاً آخَرَ لا إلَهَ إلاَّ أنتَ تَبَارَكْتَ وتَعَالَيْتَ عَمَّا يَقُولُ الظَّالِمُونَ عُلُوًّا كَبِيراً

NABEEZ ~ Drink made with soaked resins or dates

Nabeez was the favorite drink of our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam. It is made either by dates or raisins, but raisin’s Nabeez is more delicious.

By the simple way of soaking raisins as it was practiced by Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam, you never know the blessings & benefits this drink carries & how it can bring for you the health & drain out the sickness.

After Isha prayer, soak around 100 grams of raisins in 1 liter of drinkable / healthy water, & keep the utensil covered with a plate. (Manaqqa is the best variety for making Nabeez, but other types can also be used). Next morning, you can drink the water & eat the soaked fruit, OR just use your blender (water + soaked fruit) to obtain a beautiful / cloudy NABEEZ.
And if you soak the fruit in morning, drink it at the evening.

Nabeez should be consumed within 12 hours of soaking time, but if it is kept air tight inside the refrigerator, it will not spoil for 2-3 days Insha’Allah. It becomes more sweeter in refrigerator after 24 hours. Serve cold NABEEZ to your guests; instead of tea, coffee, juices & sodas, & tell them the beauty of Sunnah.

Never mix raisins & dates together; their Nabeez should be made separately.

سنن أبي داود/كتاب الأشربة
3710 – حدثنا عيسى بن محمد قال ثنا ضمرة عن السيباني عن عبد الله بن الديلمي عن أبيه قال « أتينا النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقلنا يا رسول الله قد علمت من نحن ومن أين نحن فإلى من نحن؟ قال ” إلى الله وإلى رسوله ” فقلنا يا رسول الله إن لنا أعنابا ما نصنع بها؟ قال ” زببوها ” قلنا ما نصنع بالزبيب؟ قال ” انبذوه على غدائكم واشربوه على عشائكم وانبذوه على عشائكم واشربوه على غدائكم وانبذوه في الشنان ولا تنبذوه في القلل فإنه إذا تأخر عن عصره صار خلا ”

From Sunan Abu Dawood ~ Book of drinks
Narrated Ad-Daylami:
We came to the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) and said to him: O Apostle of Allah, you know who we are, from where we are and to whom we have come. He said: To Allah and His Apostle. We said: Apostle of Allah, we have grapes; what should we do with them? He said: Make them raisins. We then asked: What should we do with raisins? He replied: Steep them in the morning and drink in the evening, and steep them in the evening and drink in the morning. Steep them in skin vessels and do not steep them in earthen jar, for it is delayed in pressing, it becomes vinegar.

3712 – حدثنا مسدد قال ثنا المعتمر قال سمعت شبيب بن عبد الملك يحدث عن مقاتل بن حيان قال حدثتني عمتي عمرة عن عائشة رضي الله عنها أنها كانت تنبذ لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم غدوة فإذا كان من العشي فتعشى شرب على عشائه فإن فضل شىء صببته أو فرغته ثم تنبذ به بالليل فإذا أصبح تغدى فشرب على غدائه وقالت يغسل السقاء غدوة وعشية فقال لها أبي مرتين في يوم؟ قالت نعم

Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin
Amrah said on the authority of Aisha that she would steep dates for the Apostle of Allah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) in the morning. When the evening came, he took his dinner and drank it after his dinner. If anything remained, she poured it out. She then would steep for him at night. When the morning came, he took his morning meal and drank it after his morning meal. She said: The skin vessel was washed in the morning and in the evening. My father (Hayyan) said to her: Twice a day? She said: Yes.

For making Nabeez, Manaqqa is the best variety among all Raisins

After Isha, soak 100 ~ 150 grams of Raisins in 1 liter of water

After Fajar, blend the raisins with water & you will have a cloudy Nabeez, refrigerate & you can use it within 2-3 days.
