    The Following Explains What Is Tahneek And How It Should Be Done.



    When And How Tahneek Is Done:
    If possible, after the Azân and Iqâmah, a pious person should chew a piece of date or anything sweet and place it onto the palate of the child and request the pious person to make Du‘â for the child. This is called Tahneek.www.Askimam.org

    Tahneek The Sunnah:
    Tahneek is the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Salalaahu Alayhi Wasallam). It is not necessary for the Tahneek to be done immediately after birth. It could be done after a few days as well. It is important to note that the health of the baby should also be taken into consideration. Sometimes the item on which Tahneek is made could have reverse effect on the child.


    Furthermore, if you would wish for the Tahneek to take place immediately, you could request an Alim or pious person to make the Tahneek before and present it to the child after birth. It is not necessary for the person making the Tahneek to be present at the hospital.www.Askimam.org

    Preferences On How Tahneek Is Carried Out:
    1. Tahneek should be performed on the day of birth. The first preference to be used for Tahneek is normal dates, then Rutab (fresh dates), then honey and then anything sweet. The method of Tahneek is to chew the date into a paste-like substance and then to apply a small amount of that paste onto the baby's palate. (Fathul Bari vol. 15 pg. 390)www.Askimam.org
    فتح الباري لابن حجر - (ج 15 / ص 390)


    قَوْله ( وَتَحْنِيكه )


    أَيْ غَدَاة يُولَد ، وَكَأَنَّهُ قَيَّدَ بِالْغَدَاةِ اِتِّبَاعًا لِلَفْظِ الْخَبَر . وَالْغَدَاة تُطْلَق وَيُرَاد بِهَا مُطْلَق الْوَقْت وَهُوَ الْمُرَاد هُنَا ، وَإِنَّمَا اِتَّفَقَ تَأْخِير ذَلِكَ لِضَرُورَةِ الْوَاقِع ، فَلَوْ اِتَّفَقَ أَنَّهَا تَلِد نِصْف النَّهَار مَثَلًا فَوَقْت التَّحْنِيك وَالتَّسْمِيَة بَعْد الْغَدَاة قَطْعًا . وَالتَّحْنِيك مَضْغ الشَّيْء وَوَضْعه فِي فَم الصَّبِيّ وَدَلْك حَنَكه بِهِ ، يُصْنَع ذَلِكَ بِالصَّبِيِّ لِيَتَمَرَّنَّ عَلَى الْأَكْل وَيَقْوَى عَلَيْهِ . وَيَنْبَغِي عِنْد التَّحْنِيك أَنْ يُفْتَح فَاهُ حَتَّى يَنْزِل جَوْفه ، وَأَوْلَاهُ التَّمْرُ فَإِنْ لَمْ يَتَيَسَّر تَمْر فَرُطَب ، وَإِلَّا فَشَيْء حُلْو ، وَعَسَل النَّحْل أَوْلَى مِنْ غَيْره ، ثُمَّ مَا لَمْ تَمَسّهُ نَار كَمَا فِي نَظِيره مِمَّا يُفْطِر الصَّائِم عَلَيْهِwww.Askimam.org

    Ahadith Which Proves That Tahneek Was Carried Out By Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW:
    Found In: Sahih Muslim Chapter No: 2, Purification (Kitab Al-Taharah)
    Hadith no: 560
    Narrated: Aisha
    the wife of the Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Babies were brought to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) and he blessed them, and after having chewed (something, e. g. dates or any other sweet thing) he rubbed there with their soft palates. A baby was brought to him and he passed water over him (over his garment), so he asked water to be brought and sprinkled it, but he did not wash it.http://ahadith.co.uk

    We should find out how little a baby can be given tehneek , because small babies can really choke on stuff and it can cause some serious damage...honey is better perhaps?

    ^ i don't think they can choke, because it's dissolved Tamir, because before it's given to the baby it's been chewed ...
    according to what i learned once, first the adult must clean his teeth and his hands very well, then he should peel the date coz the cortex a little bit difficult for the baby's stomach, later he must chew it to little pieces and place it on his finger and then move his finger along the lower and upper jaw of the baby. (tahneek)


    Our prophet (pbuh) said: “Haya does not bring anything except good.”
