    I don't have one in particular; I usually shop around. Try the side streets, the Egyptian shops are usually reasonable, Lebanese can be very pricey on the main road.
    K, thanks.

    I thought you didn't like pasta? :mute:
    I don't. I only like it when it's made with cheese aka lasagne, pasta bake etc. I don't like cheese much though, so wouldn't say pasta bake & lasagne were my favourite foods.

    I think there was a hadeeth that went along the lines of A house without dates is a poor house. If someone can quote the exact hadeeth that would be fantastic.
    "A house without dates has no food."

    In the UK they are quite expensive in general, they would cost you a fortune if you were to buy them on a regular basis, I usually tell people I know who're going for Hajj/Umrah, to bring me them.

    There was a hadeeth along those lines though, and that could be the exact wording. I see what you mean though.

    How comes their is no reference to where the hadeeths have been taken from, usually I don't accept them without it. It's risky in general in regarding to getting stuff from the net. Also the Site title says 'The Western sufi resource guide'. :erm:

    Real Ajwa come from Medina, the price rises around Ramzan because they were the Prophets favourite. Wealthy Persians and Arabs buy them, around now.

    You can buy the same variety of date cheaper, it will just be grown in Egypt or elsewhere but pretty much the same thing, unless you want to pay extra for the prestige of eating the Medinan ones. :dontknow:

    Oh. Bow Boys is the secondary school just before the flyover.

    Well I moved to London just over a year ago, I used to live west. I moved into my current accommodation about 7 months ago.

    Well the fly-over is east of Roman road, someone didn't do very well at Geography, did they? Farhan. :shoot:

    Yeah true, but they are pricey in general even not during ramadhan time (well at least it is for me). They have a unique sweet taste. Also the Jordanian dates are brilliant too.
