FOODS OF THE NOBLE QURAN ADN SUNNAH-LEMON – UTTRUJJ (citron)

Lemon is mentioned in the Medicine of the Prophet , salah la alaihi wa salem, in relation to sugar cane-QASAB AL SUKKAR. it  states that the juice of lemon, orange or plum pomegranate  repels the harmful effects of the sugar cane.

Lemon is also part of the citrus family. All citrus fruits; lemon, orange, limes, grapefruits, tangerines, clematines etc consists of four part; peel, pulp, flesh and seeds. Each one of these pieces has  its own temperament.

The peel keeps moths away  from clothes and its scents the air. It sweetens breathe in the mouth and when added to food aids digestion. Its flesh soften the stomach and aids those  of a bilious temperament.

The pulp awakens the appetite for food so for those of us trying to put weight on, this could be a solution inshallah.
