GINGER ( zanjibal)
God the Most High said in the Quran
“they will be given to drink there in a cup mixed with ginger”
surat 76. Al-Insân or Ad-Dahr
From the haddiths of Abu said al’ Khudri, its mentioned in the book of Prophetic Medicine that Abu Nu’aym narrated that “the Emperor of Byzantine sent the Messenger of Allah, salah al alaihi wa salem, a jar of ginger, so he gave each person a piece to eat and he gave me a piece”
In Islamic and Ayurvedic medicine ginger is moist in the first degree and hot in the second.
it is warming, aids digestion and is softening on the stomach. It is beneficial for the liver where there are obstructions caused by cold and moisture.
It is stimulant and if drunk late in the evening will keep you awake. so if you a have busy long day blend some ginger with water, add a little lemon and honey and store in the fridge over night and take to that lecture with you sheikh, while you are educating us, re educate your taste buds and feel the difference inshallah
it is a sexual stimulant and increases semen, good if you are trying to have a baby inshallah, the problem with some of our men today is that they do not show a good example by eating these prophetic foods because they don’t like the taste, they as the Amir need to set the example by educating their taste buds.
It dissolves wind in the stomach and increases the power of the memory Alhamdulillah
