Sabir(arabic) or aloe vera.

Aloe Vera Plant

Abu Dawoud related in Kitab Al Marasil, from hadith of Qays bin Rafi Al Qaysi,that the Messenger of Allah, salah l a alahi wa salem, said, ” in two bitter things there is healing, aloe and thuffa”.

And in the Sunan of Abu Dawud  from the hadith of Umm Salma, the Prophet Muhammad , salah la alaihi wa salem, entered my house and asked me ” what is this , Umm Salma?” I replied “It is aloes, oh Messenger of Allah,there is no scent in it.”He said, “It lights up the face, so do not put it on except at night”, and he forbid it to be used on the  face during the day. Abu Dawud, in book of Talaq 46.

It can be used as an ointment with rosewater and applied on the forehead and temples for headache, its also good for the brain and optic nerve.

It restores appetite, good for ulcers of nose and mouth, sharpens the intellect  strengthens the heart and purges black bile and melancholy.

After drinking  honey and water I leave it to go down for about 15 minutes then make juice, today I had celery, pineapple and kiwi with a splash (30ml) of organic aloe vera juice)

  1. Jzk for this informative post Karimah. So how much is the recommended daily intake of natural aloe vera, I read some where can’t remember that if you ingest toomuch it flushes out some necessary minerals the body needs, would like to know how much to take from the plant directly without it being harmful. Thanks in advance ws

    1. as salaam alaikum, i take about 30ml in juice, that’s how much it said to take on bottle, they tend to stay inside of what is safe to avoid prosecution

    Assalam Alaikum Sister, When i read the hadith you wrote about Aloe Vera, that Prophet Peace Be Upon Him said not to use it at daytime, so I was in a bit of small shock. So, I had to research. And so i traced it out. Its basically for a lady in iddah so that her face doesnt shine during iddhah. Otherwise normally it can be used, Alhamdulilah.

    2298 Narrated Umm Salamah, Ummul Mu’minin: Umm Hakim, daughter of Usayd, reported on the authority of her mother that her husband died and she was suffering from sore eyes. She therefore applied collyrium (jala’). Ahmad said: The correct version is “glittering collyrium (kuhl al-jala’). She sent her slave-girl to Umm Salamah, and she asked her about the use of glittering collyrium (kuhl al-jala’). She said: Do not apply it except in the case of dire need which is troubling you. In that case you can use it at night, but you should remove it in the daytime. Then Umm Salamah said: The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) came to visit me when AbuSalamah died, and I had put the juice of aloes in my eye. He asked : What is this, Umm Salamah? I replied: It is only the juice of aloes and contains no perfume. He said: It gives the face a glow, so apply it only at night and remove it in daytime, and do not comb yourself with scent or henna, for it is a dye. I asked: What should I use when I comb myself, Apostle of Allah? He said: Use lote-tree leaves and smear your head copiously with them.

    Jazaak ALLAHU Khairan for the information you have provided. May ALLAH bless you. Sister is Abu Dawud Kitaab Al Marasil online… Any more information on that hadith, like the hadith number?

    I believe everything posted made a lot of sense. However, think about this,
    suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added something that grabbed people’s
    attention? I mean Foods of the Noble Quran & Sunnah – Aloe Vera | is a little plain.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news titles to grab people to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
