For those of us who lack common sense and are still slaves to their taste buds and stomach , here is the hadith , tradition report of prophet Muhammad , salah la alaihi wa salem, that he never ate white flour. White flour in those days wasn’t as bad as it is now, not its bleached and in some cases poison added as well as synthetic minerals and vitamins which can cause strokes and hearts attacks and cancer, so you really now baby love?
HADITH WHITE FLOUR
Narrated Abu Hazim: I asked Sahl bin Sad, “Did Allah’s Apostle ever eat white flour?” Sahl said, “Allah’s Apostle never saw white flour since Allah sent him as an Apostle till He took him unto Him.” I asked, “Did the people have (use) sieves during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle?” Sahl said, “Allah’s Apostle never saw (used) a sieve since Allah sent him as an Apostle until He took him unto Him,” I said, “How could you eat barley unsifted?” he said, “We used to grind it and then blow off its husk, and after the husk flew away, we used to prepare the dough (bake) and eat it.” Sahih Bukhari and Tirmidhi . Authorised Sahih by sheikh
Cheap white fillers, it’s ironic because when refined flour got to this stage it was actually
more expensive because its more processed, now it’s cheap even though it is still more processed than natural because its part of the processed foods/pharmaceutical equation
Traditionally we used #tumeric #haldi for #coughs but sometimes it’s just not enough.
A few years ago a #pakistani sister told me of this amazing #spice that is used through #Asian food .
When we have a cough we take about 10ml and #dryfry in a small frying pan using no oil or water . As the heat starts to roast the #seeds the natural oil in the seeds starts to burn as smoke… You need to lean over the pan and inhale the smoke… It will kick the back of the throat and attack the #virus.
The #roasted seeds can be slowly boiled with#tumeric and #organicmilk or #nutmilk and drunk before bed.
Hers a list of more #remedies of this powerful plant:-
#acidity #asthma #constipation #liver and #kidney problems #colds #itching #boils #eczema #menstration excessive bleeding #arthritis #weightloss
These pancakes are #wheat free #gluten free but please remember those with inflammatory illness like #psoriasis , that millet is still heating.
Rice flour can be used instead but it better if it is also soaked in water overnight and drained
2 tablespoons of flax seeds soaked over night in water then mixed with one cup of millet flour, mixed in jug blender would be better to decrease the size of seeds other wise not a problem as they have been soaked..this is your batter, use as regular pancake batter
I am so sorry that I can’t give you the recipe, we were so busy cooking and adapting our usual recipe t hat we had no time for thinking about recipe writing ,we were recipe doing!
All praise is due to Allah for the good deeds we have been doing, feeding the poor and needy, that we are now given third or meat or even whole lambs, it is an honour and privilege.
This Eid so far, we took beautifully roasted lamb, marinated with Belazu smoked rose petals harissa and brown rice with spices and veggies to the Muslim brothers and others in the men hostel last week and last night we took mild potato and curried lamb to Grenfell victims and survivors, Grenfell volunteers at The Village in Portobello and our usual Muslim brothers and others at the hostel.
It is vital like ital to feed needy people quality healthy food , I see too much cheap white flour sugar and rice given to the poor and needy, this is not Islamic, it’s not halal and Tayyib , lawful and wholesome.
May Allah guide us to be more holistic and generous ameen
Hajj Eid is a really busy time for us as a faith based charity, who regularly feed the homeless and needy healthy food. Needy people are not starving, it is vital like ital that we give them healthy quality food.
Hajj Eid is the culmination of ten days of ritual, where hajj pilgrims visit the holy ancient city of Makka in Saudi Arabic, to tread in the foots steps of the prophet Abraham, who was asked by Allah to sacrifice his own son, Ishmael, when Allah saw his sincerity, he stopped hi and told him the sacrifice could be made with a lamb,
So every year at the end of the ten days pilgrimage of reflecting and fasting and seeking repentance for sins, pilgrims and no pilgrims unlike, Muslims all over the world sacrifice lamb if they can afford it
Traditionally a family keeps a third for themselves, gives a third to neighbour and friends and gives a third to charity.
