{تدمر كل شيء بأمر ربها}

It destroys everything by the will of its Lord.

[Soorah al-Ahqaaf :125]

[Zaad al-Ma’aad 4/297].

Ibnul 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 Ibnul Qaiyum (may Allah have mercy upon him) with slight modifications].
