Hadith on Fasting: The Prophet breaks his fast with dates, water

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, would break his fast before praying with fresh dates. If there were no fresh dates, then with dry dates. If there were no dry dates, then with some sips of water.
