Over 1436 years ago, when a child was born, Prophet MUHAMMAD (PBUH) made it his practice to take a small part of a date and place it in his mouth. He would then chew it until it was soft and then rub it onto the palate of the new born baby. This is called Tahneek in Islam.
Today, BBC News has reported that "experts" have said - "A dose of sugar given as a gel rubbed into the inside of the cheek is a cheap and effective way to protect premature babies against brain damage"
This is why Muslims follow the practice of the prophet without questioning it. 😊
Science is only now discovering a tradition that was introduced 1436 years ago because Islam was and still in the forefront of development.

Let this be known to all,especially Muslims that Islam is not a primitive religion.
SubhanAllah.....all praise to Allah swt
