Dates (Phoenix dactylifera L.) are a unique fruit because they have many health benefits. Ajwa dates are one of the dates that many people are interested in for ingestion. Making date-infused water or nabeez water is one technique to ingest dates as exemplified by the Prophet SAW and is believed to have many benefits for digestion. As a result, there has never been any research on the analysis of active compounds from nabeez water, particularly Ajwa dates themselves, so the goal of this study was to determine the content of active compounds in nabeez water as well as the total content based on qualitative and quantitative analysis. The nabeez water from dates was tested qualitatively and quantitatively using phytochemical tests and UV-Visible Spectrophotometry. The results show that the nabeez water contains active ingredients of flavonoids, saponins, alkaloids, and tannins, according to qualitative analytical results. The quantitative analysis showed that nabeez water has a total concentration of flavonoid compounds of 5.749 g/mL and a concentration of tannin compounds of 52.934 g/mL.
