Why Breastmilk and Tahnik Are Beneficial For Babies?

Breast milk contains various active components and bacteria and is beneficial in balanced maturation and balanced stimulation without injuring tissues. So is tahnik. The activity of applying chewable dates will strengthen the jaw muscles and the glucose content and active substances in dates will have a systemic effect, not only locally, to stimulate innate and adaptive immunity in a balanced manner. Tahnik is chewing small amount of dates and then rubbing it on the top of the baby's mouth. When it is said: "Hanakta ash-shabiyya" it means that you chew dates, then rub them on the top of the baby's mouth. It is recommended whoever tahnik the baby is a person who has virtue, kindness and knowledge in deen. It is also advisable to ask for blessings for the baby, as in the following hadith.

1, From Abu Musa Al-Asy'ari, he said, "Meaning: My son was just born, then I brought him to the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Arriving in front of him, he Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam gave him the name Ibrahim, then crested it with dates and asked him for blessings, after which he Sallallahu' alaihi wa sallam gave it to me (HR Al-Bukhari (no. 5467) and Muslim (no. 2145) )

2. From Asma bint Abu Bakr Ash-Siddiq, she told that when she was pregnant with Abdullah bin Zubair - (she said) -, "When I was pregnant with Abdullah I was still living in Makkah. Then I left for Medina, on the way I first stopped in Quba and it turned out that I gave birth there. Then I took my son to the lap of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam and he asked for dates and then chewed them, then he sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam spat a little in my son's mouth. That is, the thing that first entered my son's stomach, namely the saliva of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, after that he processed it with dates (which he had chewed) then prayed for blessings on him. And that's the first baby whi was born in Islam (after moving to Medina from the descendants of the Muhajirin) "(Al-Bukhari (no. 3909, 5469) and Muslim (no. 2146))

3, From Anas bin Malik, he said, "When Abdullah bin Abi Talha was born, I brought him to Rasulullah Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam. When we met him, he Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam was covered with a large blanket while painting a mark on his camel, then he Sallallahu' alaihi wa sallam asked me, 'Did you bring dates? "Yes" I answered. He took some dates, chewed them until soft, then rub them on the baby's mouth. The baby opened his mouth, then the Prophet spat out the remaining chewed dates into the baby's mouth. Then the baby licked it with the tip of his tongue. Then he Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam said,' The most preferred of the Ansar people are dates'. Then he Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam gave the baby the name Abdullah "(HR Al-Bukhari (no. 5470), Muslim (no. 2144), Abu Dawud (no. 4951), Ahmad)

4, Narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim from the hadith of Abu Burdah from Abu Musa, he said, "Once when I had a son, I brought him to the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, so he gave him the name Ibrahim and he did tahnik with a date." [Issued by Al-Bukhari (5467 Fathul Bari) Muslim (2145 Nawawi) , Ahmad (4/399), Al-Baihaqi in Al-Kubra (9/305) and his Asy-Syu'ab (8621, 8622)].
