Question

How sound is this hadith: “A house in which there are no dates, its people will go hungry”?.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

The hadith is saheeh. It was narrated by Muslim in his Saheeh. It is to be interpreted, according to the scholars, as referring to people whose food includes dates, such as the people of Madeenah at the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and others whose staple food is dates.

And Allah is the source of strength.
