Tahneek lesson 7

  1. 1. Tahneek A Sunnah of the Prophet.
  2. 2. Process      Tahneek is the process of chewing some food (usually dates) Something sweet Ibn Hajr said, “if one is not able to find a dry date, then a fresh date should be used, and if that is not available then anything sweet.” (Fath 9/588 gently placing/rubbing it against the baby's upper jaw or palate so that the baby can suck, lick or chew on it. It can be made into a syrup which can be placed on the baby's palate.
  3. 3. Proven from Hadith   Aisha (RA) narrates that "the people used to bring their newborn children to the Prophet and he would bless them and perform the tahneek" (Sahih Muslim) It is narrated on the authority of Abu Moosa Radiyallahu Anhu that he said, ‘A son was born at our place, I brought him to the Messenger of Allah who named him Ibrahim, and performed his Tahneek with a date. He then made Dua of Barakah (blessings for him) and handed him to me’. (Bukhari)
  4. 4.    Hadhrat Aa'ishah (R.A.) relates, "Whenever children were brought in the presence of the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam he would pray for the child and perform tahneek. Hadhrat Asma bint Yazeed (R. A) after migrating to Madinah gave birth to Abdullah Ibn Zubair at the site of Qubah. She reports, "I arrived before the Holy Prophet Salkillahu Alaihi Wasallam with my offspring and placed him in Rasullullah's Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam's blessed lap. The Holy Prophet Saliallahi' Alaihi Wasallam sought a date and after chewing on it placed it in my baby's mouth." Thus the first morsel to enter his mouth was the Holy Prophet's Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam blessed saliva. He then applied the chewed date to his palate and prayed for him and blessed him. The supplication offered by the Holy Prophet Saltallahu Alaihi Wasallam is as follows: 'Oh Allah, grant him rectitude and taqwah and promote him in Islam' (Sharah Shariatul Islam)
  5. 5. Fiqh Ruling   Majority of the scholars say it is Mustahab. Imaam Nawawee says, “Scholars are agreed upon the recommendation of performing tahneek upon the baby after its birth.” (Sharh Saheeh Muslim 4/122)
  6. 6. Scientifically Proven      If the new born baby's sugar is low and the nutrition from baby is cut off. The baby turns to whatever sugar that is stored in the body until the mother is ready to feed. Most organs are active at this period. If the baby had chew a date, the sugar would be stored. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-24224206
  7. 7. Also..  The veins and muscles of the child are strengthened. The dental palate, the jaws and mouth are made active, thereby making it easy for the child to draw milk from the breast of the mother.
  8. 8. Wisdom Behind Tahneek  Islamic Reasons  Scientific Reasons
  9. 9. Who to get the Tahneek done by?   Pious person who is constantly remembering Allah and praying Durud. This is proven from the Aahaadith in which Prophet proved “To take blessing from the pious people”.
