Salamu Alaikum, I am after black seed oil but don't know which to get and in what form. Main reason I am after it is for my chronic intense back pain. What would you recommend?
Wa Alaikum Wa Salaam Sister,
Please remember shifaa (cure) is from Allah SWT but it is from the sunnah to seek & take the remedy . As Muslims we must acknowledge and accept that Allah & His Prophet (peace be upon him), know better and have revealed the truth. Alhamdulillah Islam is so beautiful that for every problem there is a solution & for every disease there is a cure:
Our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “For every disease there is a remedy and when the remedy is made apparent, and then the disease is cured by the permission of Allah Almighty'". [Muslim]
Al-Bukhaari may Allah have mercy upon him reported 'A'ishah may Allah be pleased with her as having said that the Prophet (peace be upon him) had said: "There is healing in the black seed for every disease except death.” (Al-Bukhaari and Muslim)
I would highly recommend you start daily dosage of Black Seed Oil. Taking it in capsule form is so much easier to take than drinking it in it's raw liquid form. I would start of recommending 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules at night for a week. If you see no adverse reactions, you can then add another 2 capsules in the afternoon. (6 capsules in total) This may seem like alot, but if it's what you have described as intense and chronic pain, than you may need to do this for a few weeks until you start to feel relief. At that stage you can lower the dosage back down to 4 capsules in shaa Allah.
At the same time, I would also highly recommend using Black Seed Oil as a massage oil. Due to its healing and anti-inflammatory properties black seed oil helps provide relief from back pain. Mildly heat a small amount of black seed oil and then massage the painful area intensely. What you are trying to achieve here is not to massage the muscles, but to massage the oil as deeply as you can into the body. Imagine your actually trying to get the oil into the spine.
You can also give our Sore Muscle/Arthritis Cream a try. It acts very similar to Deep Heat but with Black Seed Oil added to it.
I will provide you the links to the products that I have just recommended for you to. Have have a look at them in more detail.
