[throughbitsnpcs] ajwa dates.png

Narrated Saud:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “If somebody takes some `Ajwa dates every morning, he will not be affected by poison or magic on that day till night.” (Another narrator said seven dates). (Sahih al-Bukhari 5768)

Narrated Sa`d:

I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “Whoever takes seven ‘Ajwa dates in the morning will not be affected by magic or poison on that day.” (Sahih al-Bukhari 5779)

Rafi’ bin ‘Amr Al-Muzani said:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: “Ajwah and the rock* are from Paradise.” Graded Sahih by Al-Albani. (Sunan Ibn Majah Vol. 4, Book 31, Hadith 3456)

‘A’isha reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:

The ‘ajwa’ dates of ‘Aliya’ contain heating effects and these are antidote in the early morning. (Sahih Muslim 2048)

Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said:

“Al-‘Ajwah is from Paradise and it contains a cure for poison. Truffles are a form of manna, and its liquid is a cure for the eye.” Graded Hasan by Al-Albani (Jami’ at-Tirmidhi Vol. 4, Book 2, Hadith 2066)


Any action void of the remembrance of Allah is either a distraction or heedlessness except for four actions

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) praised health-promoting physical activities. In an authentic hadith, which is narrated in At-Tabarani, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Any action which is void of the remembrance of Allah is either a distraction or heedlessness except for four actions: Walking from target to target, i.e. during archery practice; training a horse; playing with one’s family; and learning to swim.” Most of what the Prophet (peace be upon him) mentioned in this hadith are physical activities that promote one’s physical strength and overall health.

Truffle water cures eye diseases


It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said:
“We used to narrate from the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and mention truffles, and they said: ‘(It is) the smallpox of the earth.’ When the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was told of what they were saying, he said: ‘Truffles are a type of manna, and the Ajwah are from Paradise, and they are a healing from poison.’” Graded Hasan by Sheikh Al-Albani (Sunan Ibn Majah Vol. 4, Book 31, Hadith 3455)

Sa’id b. Zaid reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:

“Truffles are ‘Manna’ and its juice is the medicine for the eyes.” (Sahih Muslim Book 23, Hadith 5089)
Abu Hurairah narrated that people among the Companions of the Prophet (S.A.W) would say: “Truffles are the earth’s smallpox.” So the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said: “Truffles are a form of manna, and its liquid is a cure for the eye. Al-‘Ajwah is from Paradise, and it contains a cure for poison.” Graded Hasan by Sheikh Al-Albani (Jami’ at-Tirmidhi Vol. 4, Book 2, Hadith 2068)

Narrated Sa`id bin Zaid:

I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, “Truffles are like Manna (i.e. they grow naturally without man’s care) and their water heals eye diseases.” (Sahih Bukhari Vol. 7, Book 71, Hadith 609)

There is healing in black cumin for all diseases except death

[throughbitsnpcs] black cumin

A native to south and southwest Asia, the seeds of the Fennel flower (Nigella sativa) or black cumin, as it is often called, is one of the most revered medicinal plants/seeds in history.

One of black cumin’s most popular and effective uses is the treatment of diseases related to the respiratory system: including asthma, bronchitis, rheumatism and cold symptoms. The seeds help increase body tone, stimulate menstrual period, and increase the flow of breast milk in nursing mothers.

Black cumin seed oil helps calm the nervous system, quells colic pain, stimulates urine production, helps treat pertussis, improves digestion and helps prevent and lower high blood pressure.

The seeds are very effective in curing abscesses and tumors of the eye, abdomen and liver, probably due in great part to the anti-tumor compound beta-sitosterol found in the seeds.

Black cumin seed helps stimulate energy and helps in recovery from fatigue and low spirits. It is also an effective cure for skin conditions such as allergies, eczema, acne, psoriasis and boils. It is anti-parasitic and helps in the treatment of flatulence, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, constipation and dysentery. [source]

Although most formal research and studies of Nigella sativa benefits were conducted recently, this amazing botanical has already been used and mentioned in the hadith. Here is one from Sahih al-Bukhari (5687):

Narrated Khalid bin Sa`d:

We went out and Ghalib bin Abjar was accompanying us. He fell ill on the way and when we arrived at Medina he was still sick.

Ibn Abi ‘Atiq came to visit him and said to us, “Treat him with black cumin. Take five or seven seeds and crush them (mix the powder with oil) and drop the resulting mixture into both nostrils, for `Aisha has narrated to me that she heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, ‘This black cumin is healing for all diseases except As-Sam.’

Aisha said, ‘What is As-Sam?’ He said, ‘Death.”

However, when buying black cumin seed oil, one should check the labels and product information carefully. Black cumin is commonly referred to as black seed oil, black onion seed, black caraway, black sesame seed, and other names, but only Nigella sativa is true black cumin.
