Have you ever wondered why people carry nuts while praying on important nights, especially lailatul qadar (a holy night during ramadaan where all your prayers are heard and fulfilled-a night of prayers, forgiveness and good deeds) ? I used to always feel that may be they are the most easiest to carry (dry item, easy to fill in a box, easy to pick up of they spill out) or because you can pop them easily and chew them fast before starting your prayers!
So, whatever may be your reason for carrying them, I have some insightful nutritive facts about them to share…
Almonds are filled with fibre, protein, and omega 3 fatty acids. Keeps you full, gives you the energy to stay awake and pray longer.
Walnuts are the brain power – they help you memorize what you pray. If you want to memorize the holy Quran (may Allah give you this opportunity soon), then make them you best friends!
Peanuts contain a very essential micronutrient-copper, which plays an essential role with the enzymes governing the digestion and nervous system.
Pistas contain a fair amount of melatonin, a hormone that regulates your biological clock and manages your sleep cycle.
Cashews contain high amounts of selenium which is very good for your skin!
So, the next time you think of filling your snack box for , make sure you include a fair quantity of these nuts too!
