As some of you know I have been banging on about drinking water and honey every morning, well honeys, here is  why….. The Islamic Evidence.

Let me quote exactly what it says in the book ,Medicine of the Prophet,( salah alaihi wa salem) , by Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyyah, translate by Penelope Johnston,

“the Prophet, salah ala alaihi wa salem, used to drink honey with  water, on an empty stomach; herein lies a most notable secret for the preservation of health that is only to be grasped by the astute and discerning..this we shall mention, if God wills, under his guidance for the Preservation of Health.”

in the sunan of Ibn Maja,(marfu), from the hadith of Abu Harayra, radialahu anhu, it says,

” anyone who takes an electuary on three mornings of every month, he will not be touched  by major affliction.” Ibn Maja. tibb,7.the isnad includes al -Zubayr Ibn Sa’id who is matruk


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An electuary is a medicinal paste composed of powders, or other medical ingredients, incorporated with sweeteners to hide the taste, like syrup, honey, jam, etc., for the purposes of oral consumption.
