Collection: Honey

Modern research recognizes honey as a natural antibiotic, effective in healing wounds and treating infections, a fact that was not widely known until recently. Over 1400 years ago, the Quran, in Chapter An-Nahl, Verse 68, describes honey as a healing substance, a notion that has been validated by science much later.


Chapter: An-Nahl (The Bee) Verse: 68-69

  • وَأَوْحَىٰ رَبُّكَ إِلَى النَّحْلِ أَنِ اتَّخِذِي مِنَ الْجِبَالِ بُيُوتًا وَمِنَ الشَّجَرِ وَمِمَّا يَعْرِشُونَ * ثُمَّ كُلِي مِنْ كُلِّ الثَّمَرَاتِ فَاسْلُكِي سُبُلَ رَبِّكِ ذُلُلًا ۚ يَخْرُجُ مِن بُطُونِهَا شَرَابٌ مُّخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهُ فِيهِ شِفَاءٌ لِّلنَّاسِ ۗ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

    And your Lord inspired the bee, saying: "Take your habitations in the mountains and in the trees and in what they erect. * Then eat from all the fruits and follow the ways of your Lord laid down [for you]." There emerges from their bellies a drink, varying in colors, in which there is healing for people. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who give a thought.


  • The term "Shefa شِفَاءٌ" (healing) specifically points to the medicinal benefits of honey, rather than its nutritional value.
