Cucumber and Kiwi juice

CUCUMBER (QITHTHA)

from the Sunnah, narrated by Abd’ Allah bin Jaffar, it is related that the Messenger of Allah,Prophet Muhammad, salah ala alaihi wa salem used to eat cucumber (qiththa) with dates(rutab) Tirmidhi At’ima – 37

Cucumber is cold and dry in the second degree and cools heat in the stomach and is useful in bladder conditions where there is pain and inflammation. Its seeds are diuretic and its leaves, made into a poultice are beneficial for  dog bites and possibly to cool swollen breast when breast feeding babies.

It’s also good for cooling high blood pressure

it’s cold in its descent in the stomach and its coolness can be harmful to a part of the stomach which is why it’s best to eat it with something warming like dates  if  you have no inflammation in your stomach. So it’s good alone for inflamed stomach but is there is no inflammation eat with something warming like date or raisins

Its good for the complexion, skin, bones and muscles as it contains silica, mineral useful in aiding the repair of these parts of the body.
