'Rumman' [Pomegranate] *Fruit in Paradise*-{Quran~Ibn al-Qayyim }



Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah 


As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu  





Ibn al-Qayyim:-

 Pomegranate Strengthens Stomach,

Is Good for Throat,

The Chest and Lungs

and ~~~~~

Coughs [Amongst Other Benefits]





The pomegranate (Rumman) is one of the oldest known fruits and is mentioned in the Qur'an as a fruit 

from those in Paradise.


"In them both gardens will be fruits, and date palms and pomegranates"


{Quran :-55:68}


The word 'pomegranate' is the Latin combination of the words

pomum, meaning 'apple' and granatum meaning 'grainy' or 'seeded'.


Pomegranates are rich in vitamins B and C, and many antioxidants.


 Pomegranate juice has three times the amount of polyphenols that are found in green tea.

Polyphenols are antioxidants that in theory may protect against cancer and heart disease.


Ibn al-Qayyim in his book-


"The Prophetic Medicine"

mentioned two types of pomegranate: sweet and sour. Some of the health benefits he mentioned for a sweet pomegranate are that it is good for the stomach, throat, chest and lungs, it can help a cough, and is excellent nourishment for the body.


Sour pomegranate can be beneficial for an inflamed stomach,cuts short diarrhoea, and can prevent vomiting.


Modern research has linked the pomegranate with the following

health benefits:-


Supports cardiovascular health;


[a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology found that patients who drank pomegranate juice daily had improved heart function.]


Helps support a healthy immune system;


Helps support normal blood pressure levels;


Helps maintain healthy joint function;


Assists in maintaining oral/dental health;


Can inhibit cancer cell growth;



Although extracting the seeds from the pomegranates can be tricky and time-consuming, it is well worth the effort, considering the great health benefits. They can be enjoyed whole in savory or sweet dishes, or the juice can be extracted to make a refreshing drink.








My 'Salaams' & Good Health to you All.
