It Turns Out hat this is the Reason the Prophet likes to Consume Watermelon

As a lover of Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala who was sent to be a role model for mankind, the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wassallam certainly did very good deeds, including the matter of eating. Prophet Muhammad was very fond of watermelon.

Yes, watermelon is a nutritious fresh intake and provides many nutrients and benefits for the body that eats it. This fruit, which has a lot of water content and is rich in benefits, turned out to be one of the favorite fruits of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wassallam.

The Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wassallam is known to be very fond of and likes watermelons and also dates. This is as explained by his beloved wife, Ummul Mu'minin, sayyidah Aisyah Radhiyallahu anha in a hadith:
"Indeed, the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wassallam often ate watermelon with ruthab (young dates)." (HR At-Tirmidzy Number 1843)

So, why did Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wassallam like watermelon so much? Of course, not only because of its freshness, but also because of the nutritional content contained in the watermelon. This is also like a narration of another hadith.

In the book At-Tadzkirah, Imam Al Qurtubi wrote from Ali Radhiyallahu anhu that the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wassallam said:
"O Ali, be diligent in eating watermelons, because the water is from the water of heaven, and its sweet taste is the sweetness of heaven. Every servant who eats just one mouthful of this fruit, Allah puts into his stomach 70 kinds of medicine and removes from his stomach 70 kinds of diseases. one bite, Allah will record for him 10 virtues and remove from him 10 bad things, and raise him 10 degrees."

Based on this history, it can be interpreted and taken a lesson, that the content of watermelon is not only related to its nutritional value and freshness, but also has value and reward benefits.

No wonder the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wassallam really liked it. The watermelon is a fruit that has various types.

Those are some of the reasons why Prophet Muhammad SAW Likes to Consumption of Watermelon. Hopefully it will be useful..
