Prepare some healthy sunnah foods

The best lifestyle a Muslim can adopt is that of the Sunnah of Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم).

Sunnah, also sometimes spelled sunna, are the traditions and practices of the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) that constitute a model for Muslims to follow. The sunnah is what the Muslims of the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه وسلم) time evidently saw and followed, and passed on to the next generations. The sunnah are filled with many blessings and wisdoms, particularly when it comes to health.

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) lived a very moderate and healthy lifestyle. The foods he ate and recommended have come to be known in modern science as some of the healthiest foods today.

Being health conscious and taking care of your body externally and internally is an act of faith. Islam teaches that our bodies are given to us by God and therefore everyone is encouraged to have a diet that is essential for good health and nutrition. The sunnah, as well as the Quran - the Islamic sacred scripture -  have highlighted some foods that are particularly special.

Join us as we explore some of the foods mentioned in the Quran and the sunnah and learn about their nutritional values and benefits. Participants will be using ingredients such as figs, bananas, dates, milk, rolled oats and others to make Bircher muesli. We will also make zaatar pizzas using different herbs.

Please note while great care is taken in the preparation of foods, some cross-contamination may occur. Common allergens such as gluten, soy and tree nuts may be present in this workshop. For any specific allergy concerns, please email Nahla Baroudi, SA Education Manager at

This workshop is presented in partnership with ISSA - Islamic Society of South Australia.

Please note this workshop is held in Adelaide, South Australia at the Al Salam Community Centre.
