Watermelons



Many hadiths involving melons and watermelons were reported, but most of them are of uncertain origin except

one which was reported by Tirmidhi and
Abu Dawood saying that Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) used to eat watermelons
with ripe dates commenting that the heat of one (dates) is overcome by
the coolness of the other (watermelon).


Eating watermelons before lunch to wash out the bowel and relieve its diseases.

(Recommended by Ibn al-Qayyim / Jauziyah, 2003)

Watermelons are a good source of potassium and vitamin A and also contain a considerable amount of

vitamins C and B.

Watermelons are food, drink and nice
smelling fruits; they wash out the bladder, clean the bowel, increase
the water of the back, act as aphrodisiacs, cleanse the complexion and
prevent colds.


(Noted by Dhahbi-Medicine of the Prophet)

The presence of vitamin A
makes the fruit helpful in improving vision, especially night sight. In
addition, vitamin A plays an importnt role in the maintenance of
healthy epithelial tissue, the tissue that covers both the internal and
external body surfaces including the skin, eye lining, intestines,
lungs, and bladder..

Aloe Vera



Aloe vera was known and
used at the time of Prophet (Pbuh) as a skin moisturiser. According to
Ibn al-Qayyim (Jauziyah 2003) Aloe vera is a potent skin hydrator and
immediate soothing agent in case of burns. It has an emollient and
moisturizing effect on dry skin and is also effective on minor wounds to
prevent scarring as well as a treatment for fungal infections and
insect bites. Ibn-al Qayyim recommended blending it with rose water for
use as an ointment. Aloe Vera gel can be used as hair gel instead of the
commercial synthetic gels. It does not share their damaging effect on
the hair; instead, it gives strength and reduces brittleness

Olives and Olive Oil





'By
the fig, and the olive, by Mount Sinai, and by the city of security
(Makkah), verily, We created the human of the best stature (or mould)'
(Qur'an 95:1-4)


'
With it He causes to grow for you the crops, the olives, the
date-palms, the grapes, and every kind of fruit. In this is indeed an
evident proof and a manifest sign for people whi give thought.' (Qur'an
16:11)


Prophet Muhammed (Pbuh) said: 'Eat Oil and use it as ointment as it comes from a blessed tree'' (Ibn Majah)
It is clear from his statement that he (Pbuh) was referring to olive oil.

As
seen in the previous table, olives and their oil are rich in
monounsaturated fatty acids. These acids tend to improve blood
cholesterol ratio by their double beneficial effect, they raise the
level of good cholesterol (HDL) and reduce the level of bad cholesterol
(LDL). According to the latest scientific research, a traditional
Mediterranean dietary pattern which incorporates fruits and vegetables,
whole grains, legumes, and fatty fish as well as olive oil is likely to
reduce cardiovascular risks. Olive oil is highly effective against
chronic constipation and it has been proven effective in expelling gall
bladder stones. Ointment prepared from olive oil are good emollients and
healing agents for chapped and dry skin.


Olive
oil is available in supermarkets in several varieties: light, virgin or
extra virgin. All are the same in terms of the type and the amount of
fat. The difference lies mainly in the flavour and aroma and perhaps in
the phytonutrient content; as we noted earlier, the more processed the
food is, the more it loses its beneficial value.


Remember, although it is healthy, olive oil is still high in calories

Bananas



In His description of Paradise, Allah the Exalted, Almighty says in His book;
''Among Talh (Bananas plants) with fruits piled one above another, in shade long-extended, by water flowing constantly'' (Qur'an 56:29-31)

Ibn
al Qayyim listed many benefits of bananas, describing their
effectiveness in cough and respiratory tract disorders, their benefit
for kidneys as diuretics, their aphrodisiac action and their role in
increasing sperm production. He recommended eating them with
honey.(Jauziyah 2003)


Bananas
were called the food of the philosophers because Indian philosophers
ate bananas to boost their mental performance and clarity. This is
probably due to their high content of potassium, deficiency in which is
connected to depression and mental confusion.(Ursell 2000)


Research
has shown the efficiency of bananas in the treatment of diarrhoea,
gastrointestinal disturbances, heartburn, and ulcers. Bananas are good
source of fibre, which reduces blood cholesterol; they are also low in
sodium and very rich in potassium, both of which aid in lowering blood
pressure.


This
in addition to their content of folates and vitamin B6 - essential for
protection against atherosclerosis-makes them ideal for hypertensive
persons, as they act to lower blood pressure and cholesterol and protect
the heart and blood circulation.


However, diabetics should take care, as the sugars in bananas are readily absorbed causing a sudden rise in BSL.

(CITRUS AURANTIUM) BITTER ORANGE

Bitter
oranges also belong to the citrus family 'Rutaceae'. The fruit is
orange-shaped, but with a rough peel and darker in colour than oranges.


Dhahabi S. recommended the scent of the volatile oil of the fruit for strengthening the heart.
Also
recomended the use of its peel in the same way as the 'utruj or citron
peels'. Traditional Chinese medicine recommends bitter oranges as a
liver tonic and in cases of respiratory dysfunction and bronchitis.
Nowadays, the fruit is also used as an appetite stimulant, a digestive
and a gastrointestinal tonic. It also improves microcirculation,
protects blood vessels integrity, and acts as an antioxidant due to its
content of bioflavonoids.


However,
caution must be taken, for if the fruit is used excess and over a long
period of time, it can raise blood pressure, increase cardiovascular
risks and over-stimulate the central nervous system.


The bitter flavour of the fruit has meant that it is mainly used in jam and marmalade preparation.

Lemongrass




Lemongrass
is a long, thick grass with a solid white root end and green slender
leaves at the top. It has a fresh, citrus-like aroma and flavour with a
hint of ginger taste.


Lemon
grass has diuretic, tonic and stimulant effects. It is good for
digesion, and its preparation with pepper has been traditionally used
for the treatment of menstrual pain and nausea. Its infusion is used in
cases of fever to induce perspiration(Epicenter, 2003). The essential
oil of lemon grass is widely used as amild insect repellent
(citronella), in soap manufacture and in cosmetics to clean oily skin,
and in aromatherapy as a mild relaxant.


Prophet
Muhammed (Pbuh) said when the Muslims were about to enter the city of
Makkah after they had reclaimed it in battle against the pagans; ''Do not cut its plants except for the lemongrass'' ( as to which Abbas pleaded, people of Makkah use it and they also use it in their houses)-(Bukhari/Muslim/Abu Dawood)



Ibn
Al Qayyim reported that lemongrass dilates the veins or arteries; he
said that it increase urine and menstruation flow, calms nausea and
dissolves stones and tumours of the stomach, liver and kidneys.
(Jauziyah 2003)

Lemongrass
is a common ingredient in Indian and Chinese recipes. It is a pleasant
addition to meat, poultry, seafood, vegetable dishes and curries and its
stems are used to add flavour to different teas and pickles

Eggs




Egg yolks are the richest and most compact source of what we call phospholipids, these constitute an essential part of the myelin sheath surrounding
our nerve cells.The myelin sheath form a kind of insulation for the
transfer system among nerve cells; the better the insulation, the more
efficient the transfer will be.
phospholipids play a major role in memory function, mood elevation, and general intellectual ability. (Holford, 2005b)

Other rich sources of phospholipids are organ meat (liver, spleen, and kidneys)
Prophet Muhammed said:- 'We are allowed two dead animals and two bloods: fish and locust; liver and spleen'
(Ibn Majah and Ahmed)


The choline content of the eggs and organ meat is also an important building block for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, a multifunction hormone-like substance essential for proper memory performance.

Other good source of choline include whole wheat, sardines, peanuts, cauliflower, and cabbage.
Eggs
contain all the essential amino acids and they are a good source of
vitamin B12, which is important for nerve function. (Ursell, 2000)


Eggs and organ meat are avoided by many people due to their high cholesterol content.
However,
recent studies have proved that the cholesterol consumed in diet
contributes only slightly to high levels of it in the blood; the main
cause of high cholesterol is the cholesterol synthesized in the body
itself due to the increased intake of saturated fats. So, in moderation,
eggs and organ meat are a healthy food source of choline, which in
addition to its benefits for the brain, aids in the reduction of hymocysteine levels in the blood. (McCully, 1999)
