Make Breakfast Possible

Make Breakfast Possible is a community project which aims to provide malnourished school-going children with a hot porridge breakfast every morning before starting their school day.

To find out more about Make Breakfast Possible and how you can sponsor/assist/volunteer:
It only costs about R25 per child per term.

Feeling hungry?

Now WE can identify with the less fortunate by experiencing a fraction of what they go through on a daily basis.

Some children arrive at school on an empty stomach. Their last meal was a meagre supper the night before, therefore their concentration and energy levels are very low.

For your donation of only R100, up too 250 children can be fed, help us to "Make breakfast Possible" for 1800 hungry children in KZN This project is in its 8th year! Upon arrival at school, these children will receive a bowl of nutritious Morvite porridge.

For Banking details, sms or whatsapp "MBP" to 0829650928. Alternatively, for donation in kind, email for your nearest drop off point in KZN (Durban, Richmond, Verulam, Tongaat, Port Shepstone, Kranskop)

Zaytoun SA

“They planted the trees so we may eat, We plant the trees so they may eat…”

it’s how Palestinians remember their past and protect their future


Since launching Zaytoun products in SA a year ago, we have been encouraged to see the favourable response from you, the consumer; and the support from retailers, distributors, volunteers, activists & well wishers throughout SA.


Alhamdullillah, our distribution has grown to over 20 retailers and 20 independent distributors ( ), and even through an online store that delivers throughout SA -

In Sha Allah, we aim to continue growing Zaytoun SA by making the products more accessible and convenient to find; and firmly establishing a sustainable market for Palestinian products in SA.


Unfortunately, due to supply restrictions this year, we have been unable to source the best quality Palestinian Medjoul dates for the South African market.

We are currently working against all odds on securing a supply for next Ramadaan. 

However we want to keep your focus on Palestinian olive oil as the olive tree stands as a symbol of steadfastness and it's also a vital source of income and food supply for thousands of families across the blessed land of Palestine.


The olive harvest represents between 25-50% of an average farming family annual income.


Palestine is the historic home of the olive tree and olive groves make up to 80% of the arable land. 

In face of continuing land seizures and illegal colonial settlements Palestinian farming families are often unable to bypass the ‘Apartheid Wall’ or market their produce past the daily restrictions of the Occupation. 


By importing Fairtrade olive oil, Zaytoun offers Palestinian rural communities access to SA consumers who want to support Fairtrade and make a positive difference to the livelihoods of Palestinian families. 

In Palestine Fairtrade can makes the difference between Olive Farmers staying on their land and losing it. Behind every bottle there is a family. 



Join us. Give a Gift of Fairtrade olive oil from Palestine this Ramadaan!

Call us on 0846767860 or email to order bespoke gift packs



Fair Trade in Islam


In the Qur’an Muslims are ordered by Allah to eat that which is Halal (permissible) and Tayyib (good and pure). While most of us are conscious of whether or not our food is HalaI, e.g. whether our meat is slaughtered according to Islamic law, very few of us investigate whether our food is:

i)good and pure and

ii)whether it has been traded ethically or not.


Trade justice is an important principle in Islam and as consumers we have an Islamic and moral responsibility to ensure that our money is not supporting injustice.


“Give full measure and full weight in justice, and wrong not people in respect of their goods”. 

(Quran 11:85) 


We live in an economically unjust world and as Muslims we have a responsibility to ensure that we are not consuming products that contribute towards this injustice. 


“Give a full measure when you measure out and weigh with a fair balance”.

(Qur’an 17:35)


How to get involved


1. Buy fairly traded Palestinian products this Ramadan and beyond. Zaytoun supplies a range of ethically sourced Palestinian products within South Africa.

2. Talk to your friends and family about this campaign and encourage them to participate.

3. Encourage your local grocery shops to stock Zaytoun products from Palestine.

4. Participate in the ‘Trees for Life’ program and donate olive tree saplings to Palestinian farmers -

5. Be conscious of the food you consume and commit to stop purchasing products that are unethically sourced or traded.


We at Zaytoun would like to wish you a blessed and spiritually uplifted month of Ramadaan. We appreciate your continued support of Zaytoun - fairly traded Palestinian products. Please keep our oppressed and suffering brothers and sisters in Palestine, Syria, Burma, Somalia and throughout the world in our prayers. May Allah ease their pain and suffering.



In solidarity,

Khatija – Founder

"Super Foods" ... for Ramadaan

Bismihi Ta’ala


By Umme Faatimah (B.Dietetics Univ. of Pretoria) 

The modern world has swept us off our feet in so many ways… our dressing, our lifestyles and most noticeably our eating habits. We have so casually adapted the western culture of unhealthy eating, moving further and further away from the Noble teachings of the Quraan and Sunnah of The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him).

Yet, the newest nutritional research continues to discover the benefits of certain foods, labelled as “Super Foods”. They have also unravelled the great benefits of certain eating habits, such as washing the hands before and after meals, eating with the hands, not drinking with meals…just to mention a few. However, all of this has already been outlined in the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah more than 1400 years ago.

We are certainly the losers if we do not make an effort to practice upon the Sunnah in our homes and kitchens. What better time to bring about these changes than now? Our beautiful Deen offers us the opportunity during the beautiful month of Ramadhaan, to bring about positive changes in our lives- changes that benefit us mentally, physically and spiritually which Insha Allah (Allah Willing) can be sustained for the future.

Physically, fasting gives the digestive system a much needed rest. Energy normally used for digestion is now directed to body detoxification, tissue repair and system healing.  

With that in mind I have chosen to highlight just a few of the favourite foods of our The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him). With the special month of Ramadhaan fast approaching, we can all ensure we have these foods on our shopping lists. InshaAllah, by us adopting the lifestyle of The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) we will be rewarded enormously… Ameen.


Dates are the most mentioned fruit in the Quraan.  They are high in energy, fibre, iron, vitamins and minerals. The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him)said: “ The home with no dates is like the home with no food”.(Hadith- Sahih Muslim)

The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him)used to break his fast with fresh dates and a few sips of water. If he did not find fresh dates, he would use dried dates. He (pbuh) said: “When one of you breaks the fast let him do so with dates, for they are a blessing and if he cannot find dates then with water for it is a purification” (Hadith-Tirmidhi)

He often consumed dates with cucumber, butter, cream or bread. A dessert called “Haisa” made with ghee (butter), dates, cheese and yoghurt was also prepared.

Tips: At iftaar (breaking fast) time, dates can also be used to prepare date milkshakes, date chutney, date desserts as well as sprinkled over salads. For sehri (pre-dawn meal), dates can be used as a softened spread over bread or added into muffins, rusks etc. 


Dieticians and nutritionist the world over have been advocating the use of olive oil for its excellent cardio-protective, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Ongoing research is revealing more and more great benefits on the consumption and application of olive oil.

The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him)said: “Eat the olive and use it as an ointment as it comes from a blessed tree”.(Hadith-Tirmidhi)

Tips: During Ramadhaan, olive oil is best used raw as a dip for breads or as a salad dressing. The lighter olive oils are well suited for cooking and baking purposes. Whole olives can be added to salads as well as de-pitted and added to breads, muffins, pies and pizzas. 



A recent Readers Digest article highlighted barley as one of the five healthiest foods we tend not to eat. Yet it was barley that was one of the staple foods in the diet of our The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him). Modern research is discovering that barley has a very high soluble- fibre content. This helps to keep the arteries clear and healthy.  It has an extremely low glycaemic index (GI), which means it takes a longer time to digest, keeping one fuller for longer.


It is mentioned that The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) consumed barley in the following ways:


SAWIQ – a coarse broth prepared from ground wheat and barley - very much like a haleem (soup)

THARID Barley bread covered in gravy cooked with meat

TALBEENAH – A porridge prepared using barley and milk


A Hadith in Mishkaat narrates that The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him)never used sifted flour in his lifetime. We should take lesson from this, as we are all moving to consuming more refined and processed foods where all the beneficial nutrients have been stripped off. Allah SWT mentions in the Holy Quraan grains with their husks, amongst His many gifts to us. Un-sifted flour as used by The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him)contains all the valuable nutrients found in the bran and germ layers and has a lower GI.


Tips: During Ramadhaan, barley can be added to soups and broths or prepared as a drink by boiling and straining mixture. A hadith in Bukhari mentions that The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) consumed “Sawiq” at iftaar. Barley flour can be used for preparing breads and rotis. Substitute 1.5 cups barley flour for every 3 cups regular flour. Cereals containing barley flakes like muesli can be purchased, or barley flakes can be added to biscuits, muffins, breads and other cereals.

Barley can be prepared as a filling porridge for sehri -Talbeenah.  Soak 1-2 tablespoons whole barley overnight in a flask filled with rapidly boiling water. At sehri time, strain water out and prepare porridge with honey and milk.  (Store bought “pearled barley” has been polished with some of the bran layer removed). 


Modern research has been abuzz with the myriad of health benefits associated with honey- anti-inflammatory, immune boosting, energising tonic….to name a few.Our beautiful Deen has encouraged the use of honey 1400 years ago. The Holy Quraan mentions“there comes forth from the bee’s belly, a drink of varying colours, wherin is a healing for men.(Qur’an 16:68-69)


The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) further said “ Make use of two cures- honey and the Quraan”(Hadith-Ibn Majah)


The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) loved drinks that were sweet and cold and often consumed honey water.


Tips:  Honey can be used to sweeten items like tea, fresh juices, milk drinks and cereals etc.  Raw honey which is thicker and creamier has a lower GI, and can be mixed with cinnamon and used as a spread on toast for sehri.  



Grapes have been found to contain resveratrol- a powerful antioxidant that protects the body on a cellular level from damage. The seeds are rich in flavonoids which lower the risk of fatty plaque accumulation on the lining of blood vessels to the heart.

The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) loved eating grapes. Hadith in Abu Dawood  mentions The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him )often consumed a drink “Nabeez”- prepared from soaked raisins. Nabeez can be prepared by soaking raisins after Esha (evening) prayer in clean water covered with a plate. The following morning the water can be drunk and the soaked fruit eaten or just use the blender to obtain a beautiful cloudy Nabeez. And, if you soak in the morning, drink in the evening.  Nabeez should be consumed within twelve hours of soaking to prevent fermentation.

Tips: Nabeez or fresh grape juice can  be prepared as a drink after Taraweeh (evening prayer in Ramadaan). Grapes can be served as part of salad or dessert. Raisins eaten with nuts can be enjoyed as a healthy munch after taraweeh salaat.

The Sunnah way of eating is the healthy way of eating.  InshaAllah, let us all strive to revive and bring alive the Sunnahs of The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) in our homes this Ramadhaan. I have highlighted just a few. Make an intention to eat on the floor, share eating utensils and to fill a third of your stomach with water, a third with food and a third left for air.

Besides the immense health benefits outlined above our greatest rewards really lie in following the Sunnah, as it comes in Hadith mentioned by The Noble Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him):

“ The person who follows my Sunnah is the one who truly loves me, and will be with me in Jannah”   (Hadith-Tirmidhi)

 Allah Ta’ala said to His Messenger (pbuh)“Say (to mankind), if you love Allah, follow me – Allah will love you and forgive your sins.” (Qur’an:3: 31)  

 Wishing you all healthy eating, the Sunnah way………………….Ramadhaan Mubarak!
