So we’re sharing a list of 7 healthy Sehri items to keep you energised so you can fell full, replenished and hydrated as you detox your soul in the name of Allah.
The concept behind Sehri is that, you’re supposed to drink plenty of fluids, fluid-rich foods to make sure you are well hydrated for the day ahead and go for starchy foods for energy, choosing high fibre or wholegrain varieties where possible as these can help keep you feeling fuller and can aid digestion, helping to prevent constipation as well.

Fruits replenish the body, however don’t have all kinds of fruits because some fruits have excess natural sugar and extra sugar intake can make you thirsty and hungry quickly. Watermelons, apricots, bananas, apples etc with some nuts can be a great way to start the fast.
