The Blessing of Bananas.

It is widely believed that Bananas are a fruit of Paradise and that Almighty Allah SWT spoke of this fruit as one of the blessed creations He has prepared for the Companions of the Right Hand in the Afterlife in Paradise where He says;

Bananas should always be eaten when they are fully ripe; for example, when the skin of the fruit attains its full colour and brown spots appear on it. It is best if they are eaten with a little sugar or honey, before meals rather than afterwards. They are also ideal for having as a snack between meals.

Eating bananas particularly benefits those who are suffering from inflammations of the lungs/chest like asthma or wheezing, and other bronchial illnesses. Bananas are beneficial for throat problems and recurrent coughs. Bananas also benefit ulcers of the kidneys, ulcers of the bladder and may help prevent some forms of cancer.

Research has shown bananas help children recover faster from diarrhoea than other soft foods do.

Due to their high fibre content, bananas also promote bowel movement and are considered an aphrodisiac.


  1. Asalamualaikum, I have heard that banana should not be eaten if one has flu and cough as it can increase the phelgm.

    1. According to Ibn Al Qayyim, eating honey with banana will reduce chances of excess phlegm.

  2. Is there any evidence for not eating banana after meal ?
