In this article, we discuss 23 known kalonji benefits in Islam and why we think it is a cure to many diseases according to this religion.
Before we start, it is important that we share with you the history of kalonji.
Kalonji is a plant that is cultivated in the form of bushes. The bushes are long and thin – height of a single bush is about half a meter usually.
Kalonji originated from Italy and Turkey and is now available in almost every country on the planet – both by means of agriculture and transportation.
People claim that Arabs learned about this plant and its benefits from Greeks, but that is incorrect. In fact, it is after Islam that people came to know about its importance and magic when Hazrat Abu Hurairah stated that:
“I have heard from Rasool Allah (PBUH) that there is a cure for every disease in black seeds except death and black seeds are shooneez.”
As narrated by the hadith, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said:
‘Use the black seed because it has a relief of all diseases, but death.’
This statement from the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is a big thing for people (believers) who follow the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in everything they do.
At one more point in the books of seerat, it is clearly stated that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to take kalonji for the purpose of therapy, but with the syrup of honey as well.
Rasool Allah (PBUH) also said, based on the narration of Salim Bin Abdullah with reference to his father Hazrat Abdullah Bin Omar, that:
“Let fall these black seeds upon you, these contain a cure for all diseases except death.”
Therefore, kalonji makes it to the list of top cures that work effectively in most of the cases, for Muslims – apart from death.
However, people belonging to other religions and castes have also agreed that taking kalonji seeds have helped them cure many diseases.
Some of which are:
- Alleviates asthma
- Increases memory
- Fights acne
- Keeps check of diabetes
- Gets rid of headaches
- Aids weight loss
- Controls blood pressure
- Protects kidneys
- Eases joints pain
- Helps recover from flu
- Improves eyesight
- Helps in digestions processes
And many more.
In fact, researchers have also found that adding kalonji to your meals can make them beneficial for your overall health.
