Sunnah of Breaking the Fast


Hazrat, according to this Hadith in Bukhari the Prophet (SAW) would eat cucumbers with fresh dates.


Would this mean it is Sunnah to break your fast this way?

رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يأكل القثاء بالرطب

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5440, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2043)

الجواب وبالله التوفيق

The hadith mentioned in your question is from Bukhari SharifKitabul At‘ima. What is its relationship with breaking the fast according to the Sunnahof Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam?


The mention in this hadithis of usual circumstances, which means that Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam used to eat it as well. However, it has been mentioned that Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam used to break his fast with dates.
