2 The Benefits of Date Palm for Health

The Date Palms have grown since ancient times, even these trees have grown before humans were created. We know the story of Prophet Adam when he came down to earth. He has found the fact that this earth inhabited by a variety of plants, and one of them is a date palm tree. In an ancient Egyptian cemetery, it was discovered that mummies were covered by mats made of date palm fronds. In addition, the fact is also found that a date palm tree intact in an ancient tomb in the area of Shakra and the grave has been around since 3200 BC. In the area that became the capital of Al-Wadi Al-Jadidi in Egypt also found the remains of date palm trees from the stone age.

History of Date Palm

Until now the scientists still have a different opinion about the origins of Date Palm trees. According to Erdowardo Bakari (an expert on palm trees from Italy), it is explained that there are some types of Date Palm trees that do not grow well except in subtropical areas which have very rare rainfall. Its roots require enough water so that will fought against moisture content salty. This shows that the origins of palm trees from the Arabian bay area, because the characteristics of the area mentioned Erdowardo Bakari is only located in areas along the Gulf coast of Arabia and southern India. Or a similar climate is the valley between the Tigris and the Nile valley.

The date palms have great benefits and have been famous since ancient times. Of the various discoveries of Artesar in Egypt, date palms have become the most important part for the people of ancient Egypt. They use almost all parts of the Date Palm tree. Starting from the trunk, they use as the foundation of the house. The date stem is used as the roof of the house and also can be used as a mat material. And last thing, of course the most important thing is the fruit as a food that they can save throughout the year to meet their basic food needs.

Dates as an Antidote to Poison and Magic

For Muslims, Date palm is a very special fruit. This fruit is mentioned in the Qur'an several times. The unique thing known from the Dates is the ability to ward off poison and magic. Humans have known magic thousands of years ago. In the time of the Prophet, the practice of magic is very developed, even the Messenger of Allah had also been exposed to magic. He taught to us to ward off magic by eating dates.

In the western world for example, various known magic terms such as Golden Down, Emotion, Hels, and Fudu. Prophet gave advice to eat seven Dates. Organizations in the UK who are very concerned about telepathic phenomena, they do an in-depth study of the truth of the Prophet's words about Dates, this organization has published their research results in a magazine called telepathy. In their research, they studied the line of the spectrum on the body of a person who had eaten seven dates and found that the line was blue within 12 hours. According to it, magic is essentially attack on the eye, and the effect of magic on the eye can not be conquered by any line other than the blue line. So that by eating seven dates can produce a blue line that can ward off magic on the eyes.

The Benefits of Date Palm

One of the benefits of dates is anti-starvation. Hunger can have two meanings :
  • First Meaning: Hunger with the real meaning
  • Has meaning decreased blood sugar levels and emptiness in the stomach, it gives a boost to the hunger and thirst-controlling cells in the brain that give the feeling of hunger to consume food.

  • Second Meaning: Hungry in the sense of malnutrition

This is what the Prophet meant by date palm as the fruit of anti-starvation, because for the person who keeps the stock in the harvest season at his house then he will not lack of food until next harvest time.

Dr. Hissam Syamsi Basya (a researcher) in his writing, explains that based on biochemical research, one of the date palm that we usually ate, contained 20-24% water, 70-75% sugar, 2-3% protein, 8.5% fiber, and very little saturated fat content (lecithine). And the other type is Date Palm Ruthab (still fresh) which contain 65-70% water, 24-58% of the gingerbread, 1.2-2% protein, 2.5% fiber, and slightly saturated fat. Dr. Ahmad Abdul Ra'ouf and Dr. Ali Ahmad Syahhat had conducted research on the chemistry and physiology of date palm. And here is a stunning research result.

8 How to Create Compost Fertilizer

Compost is a fertilizer made from organic materials. This fertilizer is very useful for the soil because it can bind nutrients in the soil, thus making the soil more fertile and more friable. Making compost as fertilizer will have a more permanent impact than chemical fertilizers. Nutrient content in compost is more stable than chemical fertilizers. Millions of micro organisms in compost will help to improve the microbiological ecosystem in the soil. Compost is made from the remains of living things, can be plants or animals decomposed by decomposing organisms. Compost quickly work in the soil, organic elements in it quickly decomposes into nutrients in the form of nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), Potassium (K) as well as minerals and vitamins which are useful for plants.

compost fertilizer

In addition, compost can also save the environment because he comes from organic wastes which are around us. Although the amount is excessive in the soil, compost does not provide any side effects. Unlike chemical fertilizers, if given too much in the soil, it can damage important organisms in the soil.

To make compost is very easy. It does not require complicated equipment and expensive fees. When viewed from the manufacturing process, compost fertilizer is divided into 2 types. One is made in an anaerobic (non-air) way, while the other is aerobic (with air). Both of these ways produce the same compost, just different in appearance only.

Steps to Make Compost Fertilizer

The first step in making compost is to prepare the land for composting. Keep the land for composting given a shade roof, this aims to avoid rain. Make a square tub using wood with a width of 1 meter and a length of 1.5 meters. Use wood with width: 30-40 cm.

Prepare organic raw materials such as straw, stems of banana trees or others, can also be mixed with the livestock feces. Make a small chunk of that organic material. The smaller the better, but do not get too smooth, in order aeration can take place perfectly during composting. Put the small chopped organic material into the wooden tub, then try ot make it solid until the whole wooden tub is full of the material.

How to create compost fertilizer

When all the ingredients have been prepared into the tub, flush with water to make it moist. In order for the composting process to be fast, add a starter of decomposing microorganisms into the compost pile. After that, increase the height of the board, then add organic raw materials and repeat this process until the height of the tub reaches 1.5 meters.

After 24 hours of composting process, usually the compost pile temperature will rise to 65 degrees Celsius, keep this state about 3 to 4 days. This process serves to kill pathogenic bacteria, weeds and fungi. Please keep an eye, which this omission process should not be more than 4 days, because it will kill the bacteria of microorganisms that serve as compost parser. If the decomposing bacteria die, then the composting process will run longer.

After composting runs for 4 days, lower the composting temperature in the range of 45 to 60 degrees Celsius and humidity in the range of 40-50%. To maintain the temperature of composting, can be done by turning compost. While for maintaining moisture, can be done by watering the compost with water. At this stage, there will usually be a high enough evaporation, to prevent this from happening, please cover the compost with a plastic sheeting at the same time to protect the compost from rain.

To reverse the compost, can not be done by carelessly. It will make it failure on composting process. Perform a compost reversal by lifting the wooden tub, then removing it from the compost pile. Put the tub next to the compost pile, then input the compost into that tub like the initial process of making.

Fertilizer compost

Continue this process until the entire compost pile moves to the side. In this way, the compost will be reversed all equally. Reversal process should be done every 3 days until the composting process is complete with perfect.

When the compost temperature has stabilized below 45 degrees Celsius, the compost will change color to brownish black and the volume will shrink to about 50%. If the condition is like that, stop the reversal process for approximately 14 days.

The Characteristics of Compost are Ripe

In theory, the process of making compost will be completed within 40 to 50 days. But the fact may be faster or slower, depending on the microorganisms and raw materials used. Compost fertilizer which mature is characterized by its dark brownish color, its texture is loose, odorless.

compost for land
