Eating Sweets before or after a Meal

Is it Sunnah to Eat Sweets before or after a Meal?




A:





During the time of Rasulullah Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, the luxury of eating a sweet dish at every meal did not exist. Rather, there were times at which months would go by in which the stove/fire did not burn in the house of Rasulullah Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam. However, some narrations suggest that at times Rasulullah Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam had dates either before or after the meal. Based on this, having something sweet could be considered to be established at times before, and at times after the meal. However, this is not a regular or emphasized Sunnah or practice of the Holy Prophet Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam.
