A philosopher denies a hadith that he says exists in Kutub as-Sitta. What is the interpretation of this hadith? "If a person eats seven ajwa dates in the morning, poison and magic will not affect him until the night." - He accuses the hadith of being illogical. What is the explanation of the hadith?
This Hadith was narrated on the authority of Sa'd bin Abi Waqqas and reported by Bukhari (5445), Muslim (2047) and Abu Dawud (3876). It also occurs with At-Tirmidhi (2066) on the authority of Abu Hurariah with different wording and again with Ibn Majah (3453) on the authority of Abu Sa'id and Jabir. This type of ripe date is especially nutritious. It grows in Madinah and most of the scholars hold it applies only to this specific date.
