What do the scholars of the Din and muftis of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: I have brought some kajoor (Dates) from a local shop, when I eat them, do I save the pip/seed as it is a sign of respect as it is originally from Madinah shareef?
Questioner: Soyab from UK
Asalaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
There is no explicit ruling regarding this but it is better to bury the date stones in soil in your garden or keep them safe out of respect. However, this isn’t necessary.
And Allāh knows best
