Dates In One’s Home

The Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, “O Aisha! A house that has no dates in it, their family is hungry. Oh Aisha! A house that has no dates in it, their family is hungry.” [Saheeh Muslim (153), (2046)].

Allaah subhaanhu wa Ta’aala says “Verily, it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts which are in the breasts that grow blind.”

this means, the blind person is not the one whose eyes cannot see, but rather the one who has no insight. Even if the physical eyes are sound, they still cannot learn the lesson.
