Sidr Honey

The companions of the right - what are the companions of the right? 

[They will be] among Sidr trees with thorns removed.


[Qur'an, Surah Waqiah Verse 28]

Benefits of Sidr Honey

Ibn Al-Qayyim (rahimahullah) said: It is a kind of nourishment, a kind of medicine, a kind of drink, a kind of sweet, a kind of cream. There is nothing that has been created for us for a similar purpose that is better than it, or even comes close. The ancient peoples relied on it, and in most of the books of the ancients there is no mention of sugar at all and it was unknown to them, for it is something that is very new. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to drink honey mixed with water on an empty stomach, and this is the secret of maintaining good health that no one can understand except one who is intelligent and blessed. (Zaad al-Ma’aad, 4/33, 34.)


With regard to drinking it when it is collected and well-prepared, this is one of the most beneficial things for the body, and one of the greatest means of preserving health; it is very refreshing and energizing, and it is good for the liver and heart. If it is well-prepared it provides nutrition and makes food reach all parts of the body in the most effective manner. (Zaad al-Ma’aad, 4/224, 225)

Olive Oil



Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The metaphor of His Light is that of a niche in which is a lamp, the lamp inside a glass, the glass like a brilliant star, lit from a blessed tree, an olive, neither of the east nor of the west, its oil all but giving off light even if no fire touches it. Light upon Light. Allah guides to His Light whoever He wills    and Allah makes metaphors for mankind and Allah has knowledge of all things. [Qur'an, Surah An-Noor 24:35]

Benefits of Olive Oil

Ibn al-Qayyim described the benefits of olive oil in his Prophetic Medicine. He said that the characteristics of olive oil corresponded to the type of olives from which it came from; oil pressed from ripe olives was the better than oil from unripe olives. He also said that the older the oil, the more effective it was, and when olive oil was more beneficial when it was pressed with water. He also mentioned that all types of olive oil could soften the skin and delay whitening of the hair. He also said that the benefits of olive oil were many times greater than have been mentioned. 


He gave some Prophetic Hadith on the benefits of using olive oil:  The Messenger (Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam) said: "Eat olive oil and anoint yourselves with it, for it is from a blessed tree." (Tirmidhi At'ima, 43) And also:  "Eat olive oil with your bread, and oilyourselves with it, for it is from a blessed tree." (Ibn Maja, At'ima, 34)

Benefits of Black Seed Oil

The Black Seed is an excellent herb with many benefits and uses, especially when it comes to maintaining a strong and healthy immune system. The Black Seed has been used for a variety of medical problems for several thousand years. These uses range from stomach aches to asthma, cancer to coughs, and the traditional use as a spice. The Black Seed is also used as: a carminative (rids the body of gas from the intestines), a digestive (aids in the digestion of foods), a diuretic (increases urine flow by ridding the body of excess water), an emmenagogue (promotes and regulates menstruation), a galactagogue (increases the production of milk), a resolvent (dissolves boils and swelling), a stimulant (increases the flow of adrenaline and energy), a stomachic (relieves stomach disorders), a sudorific (increases perspiration), a tonic (improves bodily functions), and a vermifuge (expels worms).

Caution should be taken when using the black seed by pregnant or potentially pregnant women, as high doses of this product could induce spontaneous abortions.


The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) told us that the Black Seed is a cure for every disease. The Arabic word ‘Shifaa’ (cure) came without the definite article which means that it is an indefinite word that covers most cures. This means that the Black Seed contributes to the cure of every disease. It has been scientifically proved that the immunity system is the only system that has the ability to combat diseases and produce cells that kill viruses. (To insure that you are taking the Black Seed look for the words ''Nigella Sativa''.) 


Caution should be taken when using the black seed by pregnant or potentially pregnant women, as high doses of this product could induce spontaneous abortions.



Ajwa Dates


"He who eats seven Ajwa dates every morning, will not be affected by poison or magic on the day he eats them."


[Saheeh al-Bukharee]


Zamzam is the name of a famous well in al-Masjid al-Haraam [the Sacred Mosque in Makkah], which is thirty-eight cubits away from the Ka’bah. It is the well of Ismaa’eel the son of Ibraaheem (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon them both), from which Allaah quenched the thirst of Ismaa’eel when he was an infant. His mother looked for water for him, but could not find any. She climbed to the top of al-Safaa, praying to Allaah to help her and give her water for Ismaa’eel, then she climbed to the top of al-Marwah and did the same. Allaah sent Jibreel, and he struck the earth with his heels, and water appeared.


According to the hadeeth of Abu Dharr (radi'Allahu anhu), the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said concerning the water of Zamzam, “It is a blessing, and it is food that satisfies.” (Reported by Muslim, 4/1922). Al-Tayaalisi (61) added, in a version that he narrated: “and a cure for the sick.” I.e., drinking the water of Zamzam means that a person does not need to eat, and it will cure his sickness – but this is when he drinks it with faith and sincerity, as proven in the hadeeth of Abu Dharr al-Ghifaari who stayed in Makkah for a month without any nourishment except Zamzam water.


Al-‘Abbaas ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib (radi'Allahu anhu) said: “The people used to compete over Zamzam during the time of Jaahiliyyah. People who had children used to bring them and give them to drink, and this was their early-morning victuals. We used to used to think that it was a help for people who had children.” Al-‘Abbaas said: “During the Jaahiliyyah, Zamzam was known as Shabaa’ah (satisfaction).”


Al-‘Allaamah al-Abbi (rahimahullah) said: “(The water) is for whatever purpose it is drunk for, and Allaah made it food and drink for Ismaa’eel and his mother Haajar.”





It was narrated from A'isha (radi'Allah anha) that she would order that talbeenah be made for the sick and the one who was mourning a death, and she used to say: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say: “Talbeenah soothes the heart       of the sick and takes away some of the grief.”


       [Saheeh al-Bukhaari, 5365; Muslim, 2216] 


Talbeenah is a broth that is made from two spoonfuls of barley flour with bran, then a cup of water is added to that            and it is cooked over a low fire for five minutes. 

Sa'd bin Abu Waqqas (radi'Allahu anhu) narrated that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: "Whoever eats seven dates of 'Ajwah in the morning will not be harmed by poision of margic the rest of the day." Also, the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: "The Ajwah is from Paradise, and it is an antidote against poision. The Kamah (truffles) is a type of Manna and its                    water (extract) cures the eye."
