English :onion
Arabic : basal


The humble onion is only mentioned once in the Quran but that is sufficient to mark it out as a sacred food. it is mentioned in the hadith and numerous Islamic medicine book of al jawziyah and as-sayuti and others. It is an amazing vegetables that has been use for mediciena nd culinary purposes since ancient times, It is high in anti-oxidants, this means it anti-aging . Islamic Azad University Tabriz Branch, Iran , has carried out test that prove onion is good for producing testerone, which is great for men doing heavy work or weight lifting, men looking to produce a baby insha’allah,
Surat al Baqara chpter 2, verse 61,Sahih International:

“O Moses, we can never endure one [kind of] food. So call upon your Lord to bring forth for us from the earth its green herbs and its cucumbers and its garlic and its lentils and its onions.” [Moses] said, “Would you exchange what is better for what is less? Go into [any] settlement and indeed, you will have what you have asked.” And they were covered with humiliation and poverty and returned with anger from Allah [upon them]. That was because they [repeatedly] disbelieved in the signs of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That was because they disobeyed and were [habitually] transgressing

Islamic Azad University Tabriz Branch, Iran , has carried out test that prove onion is good for producing testerone, which is great for men doing heavy work or weight lifting, men looking to produce a baby insha’allah,


An explanation of the data in the Iranian experiments is from the Mind and muscle web site, , the link is posted below.
In Iran there are a lot of guys who cant afford health care, just like here in America. So researchers investigated a theory that an antioxidant can increase sperm production and fertility.

The theory is that anti oxidants have been proven to facilitate sperm health so they wanted to see if the antioxidant effect of onion juice can do the same. It was just a by product of testing the onion juice for sperm health that the researchers stumbled upon the testosterone boosting effects!

The Results Are Astounding!

Test Group Control 0.5 g onion/Kg 1g Onion/kg
Total Antioxidant capacity (TAC) 0.53 0.53 0.88
MDA (free radicals in testes) 4.80 3.30 2.43
luteinizing hormone (LH) 1.51 2.01 2.94
Total Testosterone 160 390 509
FSH 20.37 23.49 26.61
Sperm Count 49 57 76
Sperm motility 34 75 87
Sperm Viability 66 93 93
Sperm Abnormality 6 5 5
Diameter of Seminiferous Tubule 3.8 3.8 3.8
In case you are not table minded I’ll explain it:)

The left column is the control, these rats got water, the middle column got half the amount of onion juice as the right column. 1g/kg means per kg of rat 1 g was given per day. So a 176 lb man would be 80 kg and in theory have to drink 80 g or 2.86 oz of onion juice to get the maximum effect.

What were really doing is comparing the left column to the far right to see what the onion juice did.

First look at the top, it shows that the onion did in fact have an anti oxidant activity with the full dose, none with the half.

Then the second row shows that the onion did lower the free radicals in the testes. The more onion juice the less free radicals present. This contradicts the row above which shows the 0.5 g group does not cause an increase in total antioxidant capacity.

The next row shows that it drastically increased LH, It’s doubled with the full dose group!

The next row shows the astounding increase in testosterone! The full dose group is more than three times normal!!

Following rows confirm that the onion juice did in fact increase FSH and subsequently sperm count, and mobility etc.



After a number of dissappointing experiences with hijama practioners I decided to start studying hijama myself with the intention of self administering insha’allah.

It’s a therapy recommended by the angels to prophet Muhammad,salah la alaihi wa salem, and as Muslims we strive to follow his example.

I have found it to be a beneficial therapy by the grace of Allah however I have got to the point where I feel I want to learn more about it and self administer or skill swap with friends insha’Allah God willing.

I found this amazing site, showing the various places on the body you can put hijaama cups.This site doesn’t show points on the head which I have had “cupped” in the past but insha’Allah I’ll find  somewhere else.


“I did not pass by any group of angels on the night of Al-Isra, unless they said to me, O Muhammad, tell your Ummah to do Hijama”

The Benefits of Blackseed oil

As a Muslim I have been privy to the use of this oil for some years now, it is part of the Islamic tradition to use this oil for most ailments with good effect. The following information is valuable, please save and apply.

In the Islamic teachings of the Quran and Sunnah, black cumin is mentioned a number of times

the prophet Muhammad (salah la alahi wa salem) young wife Aisha reported that she heard Prophet Muhammad say, “This black seed is a cure for every disease except death.” (Bukhaari).

Renown classical Islamic Scholar Ibn ul Qaiyum (may Allah have mercy upon him) said, “The black seed helps against all types of cold ailments… when ground, blended with honey and drunk with some water, it will dissolve the stones that appear in the kidney and the prostate…it increases the flow during menstruation and the production of milk if it is drunk for several days… When it is heated with vinegar and placed on the stomach it will eliminate worms. It also clears up, decomposes and relieves cold symptoms when it is ground, placed in a rag and inhaled through the nose on a regular basis until the ailment is cured. Black seed oil… when twenty-five grams of it is drunk with water, it will help against gasping and hard breathing…”[Translated ‘Medicine of the Prophet’ by Ibn ul Qaiyum (may Allah have mercy upon him)

The Health Benefits of Black Seed

Mahfouz and El-Dakhakhny, prominent Egyptian researchers isolated the active principle nigellone from Black Seed’s essential oil in 1959. There are over 100 different chemical components in the seed.

Nigella and melatin are two ingredients in Black Seed that contribute greatly to its highly diversified powers. These substances work together to provide the digestive benefits that have been revered in Black Seed. They also promote cleansing and assist with overall eliminating action.

Two of the most volatile oils found in Black seed are nigellone and thymoquinone which were fist discovered in the herb in 1985. Nigellone offers both anti-spasmodic and bronchodilating properties which contribute to Black Seed’s potency against respiratory ailments. It also acts as an antihistamine which helps to reduce the negative symptoms of allergy sufferers. Thymoquinone contains excellent anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It is also a strong anti-oxidant and helps cleanse the body of toxins. Both nigellone and thymoquinone work in conjunction with one another to enhance Black Seed’s action against respiratory ailments. It also provides a healthy alternative to the more commonly prescribed cortisone based therapies used by allergy sufferers.

Black seed provides a rich supply of polyunsaturated fatty acids. These ingredients play a key role in daily health and wellness. They help to regulate the metabolism, carry toxins to the skin’s surface for elimination, balance insulin levels, regulate cholesterol, improve body circulation, and promote healthy liver function. A deficiency in polyunsaturated fatty acids can lead to a wide number of health problems including nervous system disorders, uninhibited growths, and skin diseases.

Black seed contains over 100 valuable nutrients. It is comprised of approximately 21% protein, 38% carbohydrates, and 35% plant fats and oils. The active ingredients of black seed are nigellone, thymoquinone, and fixed oils. Black seed also contains significant proportions of protein, carbohydrates and essential fatty acids. Other ingredients include linoleic acid, oleic acid, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, selenium, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin B2, niacin, and vitamin C.

Black Seed Oil (Nigella Sativa)

100% pure, cold pressed, GMO, solvent & additive free and comes from the highest quality seeds.

Extracts from “Black Seed Natures Miracle Remedy” by W.G. Goreja

For thousands of years, humans around the world have recognized the tremendous healing properties of a legendary herb – Nigella Sativa, or Black Seed.

“Black Seed heals every disease except for death.” The Prophet Mohammed proclaimed over fourteen hundred years ago. It’s quite a statement; but..

The protective and healing powers of Black Seed, the seeds from the plant Nigella Sativa, are so astoundingly comprehensive and varied that for thousands of years humans have regarded it as a “Miracle Cure”.

Black Seed has an unprecedented strengthening effect upon the immune system, and works in a host of other ways to promote optimum health and well being. It works by assisting the body in its own natural healing processes.

This remarkable herb has a legendary status and has had a recent resurgence in Western medicine. Its efficacy is solidly backed by three thousand years of folklore and the past fifty years have seen a burgeoning amount of scientific data to further support Black Seed’s renowned healing properties.

‘We now realize that a complex synergy of over 100 chemicals contained in Black Seed work together to enhance and strengthen the body’s immune system in a way no other singular, naturally occurring substance has ever been known to do’.

The very fact that Black Seed targets the vital workings of the immune system grants it power over a wide range of ailments, both as a treatment and preventative. Consequently, Black Seed has proved itself a forceful ally against many ailments, such as those caused by bacteria, viruses, and common allergies.

It has also proved valuable against such fatal diseases as cancer and AIDS.* When it comes to health and well-being, a strong immune system is vital, and the properties of Black Seed are key to regaining the efficient functioning of your immune system and maintaining its optimum effectiveness. Furthermore, Black Seed is a potent, antihistamine, anti-tumour,* antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory agent, and the application of these actions alone provides relief for a multitude of ailments and disorders.

Black seed has such diverse powers that, before we examine the specific uses of the herb, let’s recap the variety of actions that it provides. Although many more can be listed from centuries of use, the actions that follow have all been verified through scientific research conducted over the last fifty years.

My Understanding of Black Seed Oil by John Claydon D.Hom

In what way does Black Seed oil, as a broad-spectrum remedy, differ from the other broad-spectrum remedies or superfoods, such as Chlorella, Barley Grass and Pollen?

It does not contain such a complete range of nutrients as the super foods mentioned, so falls midway between a herbal remedy and a functional food and Black Seed Oil has many health benefits. Superfoods can gradually improve the overall health by addressing the problem of cellular malnutrition – the long term basis of all chronic disease.

Cellular malnutrition in the first world is due to many factors such as farming methods that deplete the soils essential nutrients, and supply us with ’empty food’. The practice of cooking food denatures and impedes absorption, combined with impaired digestion. Other factors including eating refined foods and a toxic environment. These all contribute to cellular starvation of essential fluids and nutrients.

With regular consumption of superfoods we can gradually improve the state of our cellular nutrition, and in turn health will gradually improve, although improvements in vitality can often occur quickly. However, certain organs and systems of the body can remain below par even after a comprehensive nutritional and dietary programme has been in use for many months. In other words there are certain stubborn issues our bodies do not give up easily.

For example liver congestion, an almost universal occurrence, can be quite stubborn. You may choose to use a Liver/Gall Bladder Flush and this can often help. You can also use black seed oil (we cannot guarantee that this will clear out all your stones and ‘mud’ in the liver gall bladder region, it depends on many factors, but even with the flush procedure 6 or more flushes may be needed). I have found that after only a few days of using black seed oil it has improved liver function and associated digestive problems. The warming and bitter qualities seem to penetrate into blockages in the body and rapidly instigate normalisation.

Two persons with toothache were much improved soon after rubbing the oil into the effected gum. In the short term of my familiarity of this product, it appears to be one of those remedies that are very potent, highly effective, and able to target a wide range of health problems.

Some of the health conditions it has improved

Gastrointestinal dysfunction – flatulence, diarrhoea and constipation.
Liver dysfunction – underactivity, congestion, jaundice. Galls stones.
Kidney ailments – urination difficulties, urinary infections, cystitis.
Respiratory ailments – infection, cough, sore throat, congestion, bronchial inflammation, asthma. Bronchial-dilating properties.
Menstrual problems
Hair and skin care – promotes follicle growth and helps to prevent dandruff.
Immune system – improves overall function, resistance to infection but also stabilises, helping to eliminate auto-immune diseases. Stimulates production of bone marrow.
Hypertension – Animal studies have shown benefits in this area such as a marked drop in arterial pressure after only 15 days of use. The anti-oxidant properties of black seed may account for its usefulness in treating hypertension and other cardio-vascular disorders.


Various animals have been studied in relation to diabetes/high blood sugar. All showed a significant decrease in glucose levels after 48 hours of supplementation with black seed oil. Blood glucose levels continued to fall for up to a few weeks, when a levelling occurred and a therapeutic balance was maintained. The prominent physician and herbalist Muhammed Salim Khan has confirmed the benefits with human subjects. The best results with diabetes will be obtained by combining black seed oil with dietary adjustment, involving a low carbohydrate diet that includes raw fats and protein (see Dietary Guidelines)


Black seed has powerful anti-inflammatory, bronchial-dilating and anti-histamine properties, and as such is an excellent agent against allergic reactions and states. In one study on 600 allergic patients, 70% were completely cured of their allergies. The symptoms of allergy apparently included hay fever and asthma, skin disorders such as rashes, dandruff or inflammations, fatigue, bowel disturbances or lowered sex drive.

As salam alaikum ,

I am sure I’m not the only one sneezing, itchy noses, throat, eyes, sore throat, allergies right now to tree pollen, soooooooo……… we need to up the vitamin c intake, ideally naturally.

Vitamin C is an anti-histamine.

Allergies are an exaggerated response by the immune system to thing that are not really harmful like house dust or tree pollen.

Increased environmental pollution, consumption of processed foods and factory farmed animal products as well as consumption of pharmaceutical drugs and personal genetics, all play a part in the over sensitivity of the immune system.


As a reaction to all these stimulants the body processes a substance called histamines.

 Histamines are released by immune system cells and attach themselves to receptor in blood vessel, it is this  reaction that cause redness, itching and swelling.

Anti-histamines block or limit this reaction.

 Pharmaceutic medication is effective in extreme cases but there is  adab, Arabic word meaning  an etiquette in Islamic medicine that say we first ask the Creator Allah to help us with this ailment, then we use a simple medicine

Within the Islamic Medicine Tradition we have the following report:-

On the authority of Ibn Zubair Radi Allaho Anh, on behalf of Jabir Bin Abdullah (ra) that Prophet Muhammad , salah la alaihi wa salem, said :

‏لِكلِّ داءٍ دواءٌ، فإذا أُصِيبَ دَوَاءُ الدَّاءِ، برأ بإذن اللهِ عَزَّ وجَلَّ‏

Every illness has a cure, and when the proper cure is applied to the disease, it heals by Allah’s Will.

In addition, it is narrated in Bukhari & Muslim that the Messenger of Allah Muhammad, (saw) said:

‏ما أنزل اللهُ مِنْ داءٍ إلا أَنْزَلَ لَهُ شِفَاءً‏

Allah has not Sent down a disease except that He Has also Sent down its cure.

 And should that not work, we can use a compound medicine i.e. pharmaceuticals and finally as a last resort and operation.

Pharmaceutical anti-histamine are effective to point but can often leave you drowsy, which is limiting regarding operating machinery , and driving and generally less productive. They should not be the first option.

 Let’s try the natural way after asking Allah to help us.

There is a plethora of fruit and vegetables that are high in vitamin C.



 Di you know that re-hydrate chick pea that are sprouted are high in vitamin C?  Great for making raw hummus.

There is a bounty of fruits ,especially  at this time of year and the coming months that are also high in vitamin c, ideal for smoothies.

 Please stop adding milk and yoghurt, it is absolutely not necessary and will aggravate allergies. If we want creaminess in our smoothies, just add banana or avocado which are full of benefits.

Vitamin C Smoothie
Vitamin C Smoothie

WASH , PEEL AND CHOP…..oranges, kiwi,mango,pineapple, papaya, etc fruits full of vitamin C and blend in jug blender to retain essential  fibre bits, please train your children at a young age to know that these bits are actually good for them, good for digestion, good to stop plaque building up in arteries, good for lowering blood sugar….hmmmm 🙂

 Please also remember the vegetables  which make great delicious salads as part of our plant based diet 🙂
