ISLAMIC MEDICINE
The temperament of bananas are hot and wet in first degree. For those of you who have a cold, dry temperament, it is recommended that you eat them with honey.

As-Suyuti (ra) hasn’t written extensively on them; however, Ibn Qayyim(ra) commented that ripe sweet bananas can heal roughness in the throat and lungs, coughs, and cure kidney and bladder ulcers. He also observed that they are a diuretic and aphrodisiac, increasing semen. According to Ibn Qayyim, if they are eaten before food they can potentially hurt the stomach, but their harm can be balanced by honey.
