Honey Full of Miracles and Benefits

Say HONEY and the first thing that comes to mind is the golden liquid which mesmerizes the tongue with its sweetness. The amazing thing is, that scientifically and recently proven healing effect of honey is already mentioned in the Qur’an since more than 1400 years ago. We have gathered some of the benefits of consuming honey. Also we have attempted to relate this with the Qur’anic verses and the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (sw).

We would like to first mention the proof from the Qur’an. The Qur’an refers to honey as a healer of disease.


And your lord inspired the bee, saying choose habitation for you

In the hills, in the trees and in what they build for you



Then eat fruits of all manner

And follow the way of your lord, defined for you in clear

There comes out of their belly

A drink of colours many

Wherein there is healing for men

In it there is message for those who do reflection


Ayurvedic as well as Yunani medicine have been using honey as a vital medicine for centuries. Scientists of today also accept honey as a Ram Ban (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.

Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients also. A famous magazine named Weekly World News published in Canada dated 17 January, 95 has given a list of diseases that can be cured by Honey and Cinnamon as researched by western scientists.

The Prophet Muhammad (sw) once said, By HIM in whose hand is my soul, eat honey. For there is no house in which honey is kept for the angels will not ask for mercy. If a person eats honey, a thousand remedies enter his stomach and a million diseases will come out. If a man dies and honey is found within him, fire [burning of hell] will not touch his body.” The prophet (s.a.w.s.) himself used to drink a glass of honey and water each morning on an empty stomach

An effective remedy for curing burning tongue is take honey with milk. It boost the blood flow to the tongue, thus curative it.
