Do you know that looking after ourselves is so important….our bodies are an amanah & we should look after them the best possible way. Alhamdulillah Islam is so beautiful that for every problem there is a solution & for every disease there is a cure:-
Our beloved Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said: “For every disease there is a remedy and when the remedy is made apparent, then the disease is cured by the permission of Allah Almighty'". [Muslim]
He also said said: “He who has put diseases on the earth, has also put its remedy there”. [Tirmidi]
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.
Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) – This is also known as Al-Habbat ul sawda, Black Cumin & Kalonji.
This has been around for a long time & has been used since antiquity by Asian herbalists and pharmacists, and was used by the Romans for culinary purposes.
Subhan’Allah read the following hadith carefully as it highlights the importance of this seed:-
Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) said that she heard the Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) say, “This black seed is a cure for every disease except death.” (Bukhaari).
This has many benefits as it provides nutritional support for the body's defense system.
Ibnul Qaiyum (may Allah have mercy upon him) said, “The black seed helps against all types of cold ailments… when ground, blended with honey and drunk with some water, it will dissolve the stones that appear in the kidney and the prostate…it increases the flow during menstruation and the production of milk if it is drunk for several days… When it is heated with vinegar and placed on the stomach it will eliminate worms. It also clears up, decomposes and relieves cold symptoms when it is ground, placed in a rag and inhaled through the nose on a regular basis until the ailment is cured. Black seed oil… when twenty-five grams of it is drunk with water, it will help against gasping and hard breathing…” [Translated ‘Medicine of the Prophet’ by Ibnul Qaiyum (may Allah have mercy upon him)
To sum up this seed is good for many things such as diabetes, good for allergies, for arthritis, improves kidney function, promotes regulation of blood pressure, promotes detoxification of the liver, promotes digestion & elimination etc……need I say more….it’s so good to take this on a daily basis for general wellbeing….just like we brush our teeth daily to keep them clean & healthy the same way we should take at least a spoon of black seeds….you can get it in oil form which works just as well.
