SACRED SUNNAH SUPERFOODS -HERBAGE

A salaam alaikum, as we have just mentioned ,in the previous post, raw green leafy vegetables every day can keep your brain from ageing.

Green Leafy Vegetables  are considered  Herbage , which is mentioned in The Quran.

 The Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad , salahlahu alayhi wa salem, over 1400 years ago in Saudia Arabia.

The Following is an exert taken from my new book ” Sacred Sunnah Super Foods”, 

HERBAGE

English: Herbage

Arabic: Abban or qadban  قَضْبًا

Herbage is defined as edible plants, fodder, nutritious plants or vegetation. Herbs and herbage can be divided into different categories. Herbs are normally smaller medicinal culinary plants, whereas herbage is large edible parts of plants like carrot and beetroot tops as well as cabbage and lettuces that grow above ground. In Islamic medicine, particular grasses like cress hurff are mentioned as rememdie.

One of the major uses of plants and herbs is for healing purposes; in Africa, India and Asia, more so than anywhere else, the population has retained the tradition of seeking healing by herbal means. The knowledge of these healing powers have been transmitted from generation to generation.

“Herbage vegetables” like cabbage, callaloo, cauliflower, celery, chard, chicory, collard, dandelion, fennel, kale, lettuce, pak choi and spinach are eaten in larger quantities for their leaves. Edible fleshy roots of vegetables can also be eaten when their tops are green, like carrot, beetroot and radish among others.
