English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) never proceeded (for the prayer) on the Day of ‘Id-ul-Fitr unless he had eaten some dates. Hazrat Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) also narrated: The Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) used to eat odd number of dates.
[Al-Bukhari Volume 2, Book 15, Number 73].
Lesson : We learn from this Hadith "The wisdom behind eating before the Eid prayers (Salah) is so that no person doubts that fasting remains until after the Salah. So it is as if The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) wanted to stop this from occurring.”
