10 favorite food items of the Holy Prophet & their benefits

Recognizing Allah Almighty as the one and only God and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as God’s last messenger are the first and last steps in the Islamic faith for Muslims. Belief in Islam starts and concludes with these two steps. Every Muslim is required to follow the Sunnah, often known as the deeds of the Prophet. We can try to incorporate little habits or his likings in our life. Here is a list of foods the Holy Prophet preferred in his lifetime:

Dates

The Prophet Muhammad consumed a significant number of dates daily (PBUH). Because there are so many date palm trees in Saudi Arabia, the Prophet would often munch on dates whenever he had the opportunity. He compared a maternity ward without dates to a house without walls, saying it was useless. He argued that a house without dates was virtually useless and that they were especially important when someone gave birth to a child.

Pomegranate

The Prophet (PBUH) said that if a person consumed Anaar (also called pomegranate), their soul would be cleansed of all traces of evil for at least forty days. In addition, it has a reputation for being one of the sweetest fruits of its genus.

Melon

The Prophet Muhammad once proclaimed that any pregnant woman who consumes melon could not fail to give birth to a child with outstanding character (PBUH).

Mushrooms

According to the Prophet Muhammad, mushrooms have the potential to alleviate eye conditions and also serve as a method of natural birth control (PBUH).

Grapes

Grapes, by the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, “purify the blood, boost vitality, and strengthen the kidneys, therefore making them pure” (PBUH). Not only does it positively affect one’s health, but it also has the distinction of being among the most delicious fruits of its genera.

Figs

According to much research, figs (Injeer) are beneficial for those who suffer from piles and constipation. In one of his sayings, the Prophet Muhammad referred to figs as the “fruit of paradise” (PBUH).

Barley

Since it is a vital human diet and has a wonderful flavor when prepared as a hot soup, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) suggested barley as a treatment for fever.

Honey

Honey, in its purest form, is considered by many to be a narcotic, yet it also has a wide variety of other applications. When combined with hot water, it can potentially halt severe diarrhea. When mixed, pepper and ginger can provide relief for coughs and mucus.

Olive Oil

Olive oil should be consumed and rubbed all over the body, as the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) taught his followers since the olive tree is considered sacred (Mubarak). In addition to this, he said that olive oil is a useful remedy for the treatment of seventy various diseases.

Milk 

Milk is the initial and primary energy source, and its advantages are well-known around the globe. As the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) once remarked, “Milk washes away heat from your heart.. just as you wipe the perspiration from your eyebrows.”

Every single one of the Sunnahs of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is beneficial in some way. Hence all Muslims must adhere to them.
