Ibn Qayyim in his book ‘Medicine of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)’ states that it heats the body, aids the digestive process, softens the stomach mildly, helps open a clogged liver and strengthens sexual power, among other benefits. It can be used fresh, dried, powdered, as an oil or juice and can also be processed in food and cosmetics (used as kohl).
We’ve all heard people talk about fat as the bane of existence. You can’t sit down and have a nice meal without fats joining the table, the problem that everyone wants to get away from with as little fuss as possible. But Fats are necessary for our body to function, to maintain health and to have balance in our bodies generally.
