Aurangabad, Sep 4 (ANI): Sales of dates picks up in Aurangabad during the holy month of Ramadan, as Muslims break their 'Roza', with this fruit.


Markets are flooded with different varieties of dates, imported from countries like Muscat, Oman, Iran, Iraq.


The prices of dates range from rupees 40 to 1,600 but that does not prevent the people from purchasing the fruit.


"Dates are imported from Iraq, Iran, Oman, Muscat, Dubai and are sold in the market for prices ranging from rupees 40 to 1,600. Dates are very beneficial. They help in increasing the hemoglobin level in the body. During Ramadan, people break Roza by eating dates," said Rupali Dosi, a Shopkeeper.


Ramadan, one of the five pillars of Islam, is the holiest month of the Islamic calendar, when Muslims must abstain from all eatables including water from dawn to dusk -- a discipline believed to better their souls. (ANI)
