I was reading Aap Beeti and I came across a letter by Maulana Zakariyya to Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi. Anyway, in the letter Maulana Zakariyya describes what he has sent as a gift to Maulana Thanwi Saheb. And he describes his gift through this explanation from the Sunnah:
To Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi
I hereby wish to present a little gift. In the Hadith, there is mention of a certain thing called talbeena, which Mullah Ali Qari says is made up of milk, honey and flour and I have added a little saffron for flavour and taste. Once, some time ago, I prepared it and it turned out to be very delicious and I got the feeling that perhaps Hazrat will also like it. Only Allah knows how it has turned out this time, but I have again mixed the same ingredients.
So, I would like to know if anyone knows exactly how to make this? I did a quick search on Google, but could not really find out the specific amounts and how to actually prepare it.In Bukhari it is reported from Hazrat Aisha Radhiallahu Anha who says: "I have heard Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam say: "Verily talbeena cures the heart of the sick one and takes away his sorrows."" According to Bukhari, she ordered that talbeena be taken and that it is a beneficial medicine. Hafiz Ibn Hajar says in 'Fath', it is reported by Ahmed and Ibn Majah that Aisha Radhiallahu Anha reported: "Make use of talbeena, the beneficial medicine." And Nisai adds: "I swear by Him in whose hands is the life of Muhammad [sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam] that talbeena cleans the stomach in the same way as any of you uses water to wash dust from his face."
Any input would be great.
