Sunnah foods during pregnancy (01.11.18)

Whatever the mother eats, drinks or breathes during pregnancy, Allāh (SWT) also allots it to the child.”It is therefore very important that the mother takes care with the food that she eats.What appears to be the case that the view of those among the early generations who said that could only be based on experience and custom. For example, Medical research has determined that fresh dates contain a substance that contracts the uterus and strengthens uterine muscles, and helps with childbirth; it also reduces the amount of bleeding that occurs after childbirth.Similarly, they also contain a high amount of simple sugars that are easily digested, which is a basic source of energy and is important and beneficial for the muscles, especially the uterine muscles which play a big role during childbirth.

Cure of diseases through medicinal plant is always a salient feature of Islamic teaching and preaching. Islamic medicine started from Hazrat Adam (A.S.) and was completed at Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) but search and compiling of these medicines is still continued through out the world

Benefits of Dates in Pregnancy:
Dates are rich sources of proteins, fiber and many vitamins, while being very low in fat. They contain a combination of soluble and insoluble fiber and thus are helpful in maintaining your digestive system. Dates have a good amount of natural sugars. They are rich in potassium and low in sodium, and thus help regulate the nervous system. Infact Dates contain thirteen elements of vital importance, and five types of vitamins, making it a rich food. The calcium in dates is essential for firming bones, the phosphorus for forming the brain and preventing weakness of the nerves and tiredness, and the potassium for preventing wounds/sores in the stomach.

 

Benefits of Figs in Pregnancy:
A serving of three figs contain five grams of fiber. They also have a good amount of calcium, zinc, potassium, and iron and are therefore a very good option to be included in a pregnancy diet. The potassium content in figs is more than in bananas, which are so commonly praised for that mineral attribute.
Benefits of Olives in Pregnancy:
olive oil not only provides enough essential fatty acids for the development of the new-born child; its ratio of linoleic acid to linolenic acid (essential fatty acids) is similar to that of breast milk. The beneficial effect of oleic acid lasts beyond pregnancy.
Benefits of Pomegranates in Pregnancy:
Pomegranates contain a number of phytochemical compounds, which have been proven to be good for your heart. They may help lower blood pressure, which is great news if you’re in the later stages of pregnancy or suffering from pre-eclampsia when your blood pressure is likely to be elevated. Rich in vitamin C, pomegranates are excellent for the immune system and when your body is busy growing your baby, it needs all the extra immunity it can get. Studies have shown that eating pomegranate has a positive effect on bone health and density – perfect for giving your developing baby a boost. Pomegranates contain more antioxidants than cranberries and green tea, making them ideal for all-round health and nutrition. –
Green Vegetables and Lentils
Allah replaced the divine food from heaven with the vegetables,the lentils ,the cucumber and the onion . So, they definately must have rich nutrients which would benefit our body and help us survive.
And (remember) when you said, “O Mûsâ (Musa)! we cannot endure one kind of food. So invoke your Lord for us to bring forth for us of what the earth grows, its herbs, its cucumbers, its Fûm (wheat or garlic), its lentils and its onions.” He said, “Would you exchange that which is better for that which is lower?

Scientific benefits of Consuming Vegetables and lentils in Pregnancy:
The nutrient contents of different types of vegetables vary considerably and they are not major source of carbohydrates compared to starchy foods which form the bulk of food eaten, but contain vitamins, essential amino acids as well as minerals and antioxidants. Vegetables are included in meals mainly for their nutritional values; however some are reserved for sick and convalescence because of their medicinal properties.
