Healing from the Qur'an - Ginger.

Ginger is a powerful healing medicine with a hot temperament and is one of the preferred foods because Allah Azzawajjal mentions it in the Holy Qur'an; 

“And in it (Paradise), their drink is mixed with ginger…” 


Ibn Al Qayyim (rahimullah) said that eating ginger warms up the body, helps with digestion, helps produce more saliva and cures nausea. Ginger eases indigestion and flatulence by expelling the build up of gasses in the stomach and intestines. Drinking ginger tea provides the elderly with energy and strength. Ginger also helps balance the stomach after eating fruit and it also refreshes breath. 

Ibn Al Qayyim (rahimullah) also said that it is an aphrodisiac and also increases the memory power.

Ginger tea can be taken at any time of day, but its best taken in the evening when gastric secretions in the stomach are at their most active. It can be made using a ginger teabag, or using slices of fresh ginger root steeped in hot water for a short while. Ginger tea can be sweetened using honey or a piece of crystallised ginger if preferred. Fresh, grated ginger root should also be used in cooking.
