Since Ajwah date has a very low price in summer (ripping season), but if you get an opportunity to perform Umrah by November umrah packages 2020 then you must remain conscious regarding its purchasing. Because the prices of Ajwah dates are increased in winter spells.

Let’s see the history of Ajwah dates what is its origin.

It is the date which was cultivated by the blessed hands of Prophet ﷺ to fulfill the condition of the Master of Salman Farsi (RA). In fact, Hazrat Salman Farsi (RA) had a great love for Islam and urge to serve Prophet ﷺ as well. But his Master put a huge burden of work on him and he did not have time to serve Islam. One day Salman Farsi (RA) asked Master what cost he would take for his freedom?

His Master laughed at that and said the cost of his freedom would be three hundred palm-trees including exotic date’s fruits just in one night and piece of gold. It means no freedom because the condition was impossible at all. Once getting an opportunity Salman Farsi (RA) joined Prophet ﷺ and said the condition. Prophet ﷺ ordered him to ask his Master to sign on an agreement regarding the condition of freedom. Hence, his Master signed the agreement in a joke. Prophet ﷺ then called all the Sahaba and asked them to help Salman.

They all collected the shoots of palm-trees and gave to Prophet ﷺ. Yet, Prophet ﷺ touched all shoots of trees one by one and cultivated them where the Master of Salman wanted. Sahaba also helped in this regard. So, that was the night of miraculous, because in the morning there were full age palm-trees with exotic fruit (dates). Then there was the time of the second condition, so one Sahaba gave the piece of gold to Prophet ﷺ which weight was not being to meet the condition. Prophet ﷺ took it his blessed mouth and then gave Salman to give his Master. Thus, both conditions had fulfilled and his Master shocked when he saw the palm-trees with fruits which had ever seen. Now, there was no excuse to release Salman Farsi (Ra) from his Master. In that way, Salman Farsi got freedom and then devoted his life for the solidarity of Islam. That was Salman Farsi (RA) who suggested to dig up the trench to check the way of Pagan Arab.

And after that, the seed of Ajwah dates spread all around Madinah and people cultivated in numbers of Ajwah trees.
