Benefit: Is It from the Sunnah to Eat an Odd Number of Dates in Ramaḍān?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

[Q]: I heard that the fasting individual must break his fast with an odd number of dates like 5 or 7 etc. Is this obligated?

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīnرحمه الله: 

It is not obligatory to break one’s fast with an odd number of dates like 3, 5, 7 or 9. Rather, it is not even from the Sunnah except on ʿĪd al-Fiṭr. It has been authentically established that the Prophet ﷺ would not depart for prayer on the day of ʿĪd al-Fiṭr until he had eaten an odd number of dates. As for other than this occasion, the Prophet ﷺ would not intend to eat an odd number of dates.

الشيخ ابن عثيمين رحمه الله: كثير من الناس يظنون أن العقوبة إنما تكون في الأمور الظاهرة كالأبدان والأموال والأولاد، والحقيقة أن العقوبة بمرض القلوب وفسادها أشد وأعظم من العقوبة بمثل تلك الأمور.
(أحكام من القرآن الكريم-1/87)
