Collection: Honey

Honey hinders the growth of microbes; less microbes leads to faster healing of wounds... This was only known recently, however it was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered.

Surah: An-Nahl

Verse: 68

And your Lord (Allah) revealed to the bees: Build your hives in mountains, trees and in what they build. Then eat from every fruit and follow your Lord's enslaved paths, from its bellies exits drink of different colors, in it healing for man. These are signs for those who contemplate.

 وَأَوْحَىٰ رَبُّكَ إِلَى النَّحْلِ أَنِ اتَّخِذِي مِنَ الْجِبَالِ بُيُوتًا وَمِنَ الشَّجَرِ وَمِمَّا يَعْرِشُونَ


"Shefa شِفَاءٌ" means healing. Here the Quran is referring to the healing properties of honey (not the nutritious ones). Today we know that honey is a natural antibiotic.
