  • Honey

    More than 1400 years ago Allah and His Messenger (Peace be upon him) told us that honey can heal a variety of medical problems.

    Allah says:
    “And the Lord inspired the bee, saying: Take your habitations in the mountains and in the trees and in what they erect. Then, eat of all fruits and follow the ways of your Lord made easy (for you)’. There comes forth from their bellies a drink of varying colours wherein is healing for men. Verily in this is indeed a sign for people who think.” [Qur’an 16:68-69]
    The Prophet (peace be upon him) has also told us of the healing found within honey for a variety of medical problems, including stomach ailments.
    “Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (RA) reported: A person came to Allah’s Apostle (saw) and told him that his brother’s bowels (intestines) were loose. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (saw) said: Give him honey. So he gave him that and then came and said: I gave him honey but it has only made his bowels more loose. He said this three times; and then he came the fourth time, and he (the Holy Prophet) said: Give him honey. He said: I did give him, but it has only made his bowels more loose, whereupon Allah’s Messenger (saw) said: Allah has spoken the truth and your brother’s bowels are in the wrong. So he made him drink (honey) and he was recovered ” [Source: Bukhari & Muslim].
    It is also reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
    “Make use of the two remedies: honey and the Qur’an.” (At-Tirmithi)
    “Honey is a remedy for every illness and the Qur’an is a remedy for all illness of the mind, therefore I recommend to you both remedies, the Qur’an and honey.” (Bukhari)
    Ibn al-Qayyim states that the Prophet (Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam) used to drink honey and water on an empty stomach for health preservation. Ibn al-Qayyim classed honey as both a food and medicine.

    Modern medicine has only recently discovered the fact that honey is a remedy to many diseases. Traditional uses of honey have included honey mixed with lemon for sore throats. Honey coats the throat and reduces throat irritation. Research has already shown that honey blocks the growth of oral bacteria.

    Honey has also been used for stomach pains and problems. Modern research shows that honey is effective when used in the treatment of gastric or peptic stomach ulcers. Research has also revealed that honey is effective in the treatment of various wounds and infections because of its antimicrobial (antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal) properties.

    Researchers are not absolutely sure why honey heals but they are learning new things about honey everyday. As mentioned in the beginning, honey contains a variety of sugars and minerals. Honey is also considered an antioxidant. This means it allows the blood to circulate better and provide more oxygen to areas of the body such as the brain.

    Honey can also be used externally to promote healing when applied to wounds, even postoperative wounds. Honey has also been effective in its use to treat burns. It has even been shown to be low in calories and useful as a sweetener for diabetics, people with heart disease or those overweight.

    Although there is healing in honey for a variety of medical disorders, certain precautions should be taken:

    1- Children under the age of one year should not be given honey due to the possibility of infant botulism. This type of food poisoning can be deadly, however, it only seems to affect infants under one year of age.
    2- If you have any known allergies to specific plants, then you should make sure the honey you are using is not produced from that plant.
    3- People with allergies to bee stings should be careful when using other bee-related products such as propolis or royal jelly.

    However, if these precautions are followed, then honey may, InshaAllah provide healing for you.

    Re: Honey

    Honey truly is a miracle cure! If you can get hold of some raw honey even better!

    • Not pasteurised (which degrades the enzymes, minerals and vitamins).
    • Not ultra filtered - which removes the pollen and its benefits.
    • Not a blend of different honeys from different countries (which almost all supermarket honey is, even when it is organic).
    • The bees are not given antibiotics.
    • The bees are fed honey not sugar (many beekeepers feed their bees sugar in the winter).
    What does 'freedom' mean?

    Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
    Restricted by the sky?

    Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
    Not enough river to explore?

    Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
    but death for the fish,

    The sea is wide for the fish
    but will engulf the bird.

    We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
    We can only express our nature as it was created.

    The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
    freedom from slavery to other than the One,
    Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
    and a horizon that extends to the next life,
    Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

                Re: Honey

                My grandfather used to have beehives and I tasted raw honey; my grandparents where having what I call a "garden of miracles", it was like a garden from fairy tales with many good things like strawberries, sweet apples, beehives, flowers, canopy of vines, even a hazelnut tree... Subhan'Allah I miss that garden and them, childhood is a fairy tale indeed :love:

                  I thought about beekeeping before, but no where to keep the hive over here. Insha'allah maybe when I have a place with a big garden :hidban:

                    I watched a program on the BBC sometime back, about pharmaceutical companies and one of the CEO' said "if people knew about honey we would be out of business". And these words are still stuck in my head.
