Yemeni [honey] and the medicinal benefits according to quran and sunnah

Yemeni honey, as well as others around the world, though especially sidr honey from Hadramout, Yemen, is known for its medicinal benefits. Rasoolullah Muhammad saaw used to use honey as medicine and encouraged us to as well as mentioned in Bukhari,

‘Honey is a remedy for every illness and the Qur’an is a remedy for all illness of the mind, therefore I recommend to you both remedies, the Qur’an and honey.’ (Bukhari)

One should drink honey even when he/she is healthy, as this is a Sunnah of Rasoolullah Muhammad (peace be upon him). It is confirmed by the following hadeeth:

“Anas (RA), reported: I served drink to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) in this cup of mine: Honey, Nabidh, Water and Milk”  [Bukhari & Muslim]

– – – – – –  – – –  – – –

-Honey is one of the four canals the true believers will drink from when they enter in Jannah, by the will of Allah. The first canal is water, the second milk, the third honey, and the fourth being non intoxicating wine, which is haraam in dunya but will be given to the believer in  Jannah, inshaAllah.

-Honey has been used as a vital medicine for centuries.

-Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases. if taken in the right dosage as medicine.

“There is no disease that Allah has created except that He also has created its treatment.” [Bukhari]

[Arabic]: “Bab ma anzala Allah da’ illa anzala lahu shifa.”

Here is a link I will leave you with with different honey recipes for the different diseases and ailments inshaAllah. Allah give you the shifah, ameen.

homeschooling resources

Asalaamu alaikum

My husband is designing a new website for the islamic publishing company he works for and he said he can include a seperate area on or offsite where we can upload homeschooling materials and resources for free use. It would be organized by subject with download links. The only problem is getting all the  materials together so if you have any materials that would be beneficial, please email them to me at this following address:

In the subject line, please state the name of the resource, the course and grade.

ex: asma’ullah al husnaa, islamic studies, grade 4      (or)
patterning with manipulatives, mathematics, grade 1     (or)
bag with shapes, montessori, grade k     (or)
history of the arab empire w/exam, history, grade 11

I am going to try and see if he can make it so that anyone can upload their own materials as they make them or find them so that there is more involvement and so it is more accessible inshaAllah.

We are accepting any and all resources and grades and subjects. Even if they are posted elsewhere, please send them us as well so that we have as many resources together in one space as possible, bi’thnAllah. Jazakallah khair.

Sadaqah jariyah, knowledge and prayers

Bismillah ar-raman ar raheem…

The Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam / may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (continuous charity); knowledge which is beneficial; or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (the deceased).” [Sahih Muslim]

“His deeds come to an end” means that he/she is not able to perform any deeds any more and therefore does not receive reward for actions anymore. But there are three categories of actions for which he/she can receive reward even after death.

First, Sadaqah Jariyah: This is any good deed done from which people continue to benefit despite the demise of the person who originated it. For example, the establishment of a madrassa or masjid (mosque) from which people are rightly guided will be sadaqah jariya (continuous charity) for the person who established it. Having a well dug or a shade or fruit tree planted will also accrue good deeds for a person, as long as the well or tree benefits people.

Second, “knowledge which is beneficial” means knowledge imparted verbally or by any other means through which people become better Muslims. As long as people benefit from this knowledge, the teacher will receive reward for it.

A third source of reward is having virtuous descendants. Training of children on the right lines and then making dua for them to be among the righteous is essential, so that after a person’s death they continue to pray for him or her. The prayer of righteous children in favour of parents is very useful.

Needless to say, all such deeds have to be done with sincerity (ikhlas) in seeking the pleasure of Allah (subhana wa ta’aala). Only when they are done to earn His pleasure will they be rewarded by Him.

the blind road to jennah…

The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:‘If I deprive my slave of his two beloved things (his eyes) and he remains patient, I will let him enter Jennah in compensation for them.”  [Sahih Bukhari]
