Nigella sativa or 'Kalongi' (black seed) is not only a prophetic herb "suggested by Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)" but it also holds a unique place in the medicine of the Prophet (PBUH). The black seed is an example of a prophetic remedy that has been studied extensively by both Muslims and non-Muslims. Nigella sativa has been used since antiquity by Asian herbalists and pharmacists, and was used by the Romans for culinary purposes.

Black Seed is a prophetic herb, as it holds a unique place in the medicine of the Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him). Muslims have been using and promoting the use of the "Black Seed" or "Al-habbat ul Sawda" for hundreds of years. Black seed is mentioned along with many other natural cures in the Hadeeth (sayings of the Prophet Muhammad -PBUH ) and in the Qur'aan.

Black seed is one of the few that is said to "cure all diseases except death." It is one of the few herbs that is described in great detail in the Hadeeth with recipes and instructions on usage actually being found in the Hadeeth itself. Last, but not the least, black seed has been studied by Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

Although there were more than 400 herbs in use before the Prophet Muhammad and recorded in the herbals of Galen and Hippocrates, black seed was not one of the most popular remedies of the time. Because of the way Islam has spread, the usage and popularity of black seed is widely known as a "remedy of the Prophet". In fact, a large part of this herbal preparation's popularity is based on the teachings of the Prophet . The Prophet not only mentioned the usefulness of black seed in his teachings, but also gave specific instructions on how to prepare the seed for medical use.                                                          

Prophet said: “Use this Black Seed regularly, because it is a cure for every disease, except death.” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]                                                                                              

It is unique in that it was not used profusely before the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) made its use popular. Although there were more than 400 herbs in use before the Prophet Muhammad and recorded in the herbals of Galen and Hippocrates, the Black Seed was not one of the most popular remedies of the time. Because of the way Islam has spread, the usage and popularity of the Black Seed is widely known as a "remedy of the Prophet ." In fact, a large part of this herbal preparation's popularity is based on the teachings of the Prophet .

The healing properties of Black Seed:

The black seeds contain over 100 valuable components. Black seed is also a significant source of fatty acids, proteins, carbohydrates and other vitamins and minerals. The seeds are rich in sterols, especially beta-sitosterol, which is known to have anti carcinogenic activity (Tierra). The seeds are also known to repel certain insects and can be used in the same way as mothballs.

The Black Seed is an excellent herb with many benefits and uses, especially when it comes to maintaining a strong and healthy immune system.The prophetic reference in describing the Black Seed, as having a healing for every disease is not exaggerated as it at first appears. The Black Seed has been used for a variety of medical problems for several thousand years. These uses range from stomach aches to asthma, cancer to coughs, and the traditional use as a spice. The Black Seed is also used as: a carminative (rids the body of gas from the intestines), a digestive (aids in the digestion of foods), a diuretic (increases urine flow by ridding the body of excess water), an emmenagogue (promotes and regulates menstruation), a galactagogue (increases the production of milk), a resolvent (dissolves boils and swelling), a stimulant (increases the flow of adrenaline and energy), a stomachic (relieves stomach disorders), a sudorific (increases perspiration), a tonic (improves bodily functions), and a vermifuge (expels worms). Caution should be taken when using the black seed by pregnant or potentially pregnant women, as high doses of this product could induce spontaneous abortions.                  

Research suggests that the Black Seed is an effective antitumor treatment for certain types of cancer, including breast cancer and fibrocystic breast disease. The Black Seed may also be of possible benefit in treating high blood pressure. Except its potential to cause spontaneous abortions (and only at high dosages), there may be little if any toxic side effects to using the Black Seed.

Recent research has provided evidence that most illnesses arise because of an imbalanced or dysfunctional immune system, which cannot perform its primary function of defending the body optimally. Researches also indicate that the Black Seed contains an ability to significantly boost the human immune system - if taken over time.

The role of the Black Seed in increasing human immunity was not clear before 1986, when Dr. Qaadi and his colleagues started a series of researches in the United States. Afterwards, many researches were launched in various countries. Dr. Qaadi proved that the use of the Black Seed strengthens immunity since the ratio of the T assistant lymph cells increased by an average of 72% compared to the restraining cells. Also, there was a considerable development in the activity of natural killer cells with an average of 74%.

Research suggests that the black seed is an effective anti-tumor treatment for certain types of cancer, including breast cancer and fibrocystic breast disease. The black seed may also be of possible benefit in treating high blood pressure. Except its potential to cause spontaneous abortions (and only in high doses), there may be little, if any, toxic side effects to using it. There is even some research on the possible contraceptive abilities of the black seed. More research is being done on its effectiveness and research trials are also being planned in various countries to study its actual effects on humans.

The Prophet (PBUH) told us that the Black Seed is a cure for every disease. The Arabic word ‘Shifaa’ (cure) came without the definite article which means that it is an indefinite word that covers most cures. This means that the Black Seed contributes to the cure of every disease. It has been scientifically proved that the immunity system is the only system that has the ability to combat diseases and produce cells that kill viruses.

Based on these facts, we can conclude that the Black Seed is a cure for every disease because it strengthens the immunity system which is responsible for curing diseases and combating viruses.

These scientific facts are obvious. No one can claim the credit of knowing these facts fourteen centuries ago, except a Prophet. Allaah Almighty Says (what means): “Nor does he (the Prophet ) speak of (his own) inclination. It is not but a revelation revealed.”[Quran 53: 3-4]

More research is being done on the effectiveness of the Black Seed. More is needed to be learned about the appropriate doses of this herb for various medical problems. Muslim or non Muslim physicians need to take a closer look at this plant and begin prescribing it for all of physical ailments.
