It comes down from a reliable tradition that Imam Sadiq (a.s.) liked porridge (Hareera) made of currants. When currants are added after the preparation of Ash, it becomes currant porridge.
Many reliable traditions praise meat-broth in which the bread is put; and also kababs which is supposed to cure weakness and fever and redden the complexion.
Even there is praise of the cheekbones, brain and tongue of the goat and it’s head as they are away from the place of dirt.
According to Hazrat Ali (a.s.), Hareera (meat porridge) should be taken as it gives the strength for forty days’ prayers. Hareera was a part of the food which descended on the Holy Prophet from God.
