Honey in Islamic law:
The Almighty: (And your Lord inspired the bees to Atakve of homes in the mountains and in the trees and what they erect and then eat of all the fruits and follow the ways of your Lord made easy come out of their bellies, the colors of various syrup wherein is healing for people in that is a sign for those who said Itvkron) (bees 69).
The scholars differed regarding the saying of the Most High (in it is a cure for people) whether it is general or not; A group said: It is in general in every case and for everyone. It was narrated on the authority of Ibn Umar that he did not complain of ulcers or anything except that he applied honey on him, even a boil if it came out on it, he covered it with honey. And take a bath with honey and treat with honey
And some of them said: In general, if it is mixed with vinegar and cooked, then a drink that benefits from it in every case of every disease.
A group said: This is specific and does not require the generality of every illness and every person. Rather, it is news that it heals as other medicines heal in some cases and not in any case; The benefit of the verse is telling from it that it is a medicine because of the abundance of healing with it and it became a mixture and a specific medicine for medicines in drinks and pastes; This is not the first word to be specified, for the Qur’an is full of it and the language of the Arabs in which the general comes in a lot in the sense of the specific and the specific in the sense of the general. The people of the origins. But a group of people of honesty and determination in general carried it. They used honey to cure all aches and diseases, and they cured their ailments with the blessing of the Qur’an and the validity of belief and certainty.
Among the commentators are those who insisted that healing here is for the general public, including:
* Al-Shanqeeti (may God have mercy on him) in his book The Muslim added to what Al-Bukhari and Muslim agreed upon, in which it was stated:... the fact that the objection in his saying (there is a cure for people) is for the general public, because it was meant for gratitude ( It is one of the four denials that pervade it), as stated by Al-Suyuti in Al-Itqan and others, such as Al-Attar Ali Jami’ Al-Jami’, the author of the publication of Items, and more than one of the investigators.....
And in the hadith on the authority of Ibn Abbas, may God be pleased with them, he said: “Healing is in three: a drink of honey, a cupper, and cauterization with fire, and I forbid my nation from cauterization.” Narrated by Al-Bukhari
On the authority of Abu Saeed al-Khudri, may God be pleased with him, he said: “A man came to the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, and said: My brother has divorced his stomach. The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said, “Give him honey,” so he gave him water. Then he came to him and said: I gave him honey, and it only increased it. He said to him three times.Then he came for the fourth time and said, “Give him honey.” He said: “I watered him, and it only made it thicker.” The Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, said, “God has spoken the truth.” And your brother’s belly lied.” So he gave him drink and he recovered. Narrated by Muslim
And Ibn Majah from the hadith of al-Zubayr ibn Sa’id is more weak on the authority of Abd al-Hamid ibn Salem. al-Zubayr was singled out from him on the authority of Abu Hurairah. Al-Bukhari said: He is not known to have heard from him, with a chain of transmission traceable back to him: “Whoever licks honey three mornings every month will not be afflicted by a great affliction.” It also has a hadith from Abdullah. You have to use the two cures, honey and the Qur’an.” Although the hadith contains the words of the people of knowledge, its meaning is correct because it is proven by the texts of the Book of God and the Sunnah of His Messenger, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him.
On the authority of the Mother of the Believers Aisha, may God be pleased with her, she said: “The Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, loved sweets and honey.” Narrated by Al-Bukhari
The books of medicine and Islamic heritage are replete with many places that talk about bee honey and its benefits and uses.. The scholar Ibn Al-Qayyim says: “Honey is food with food, medicine with medicine, sweet with sweet, coating with glaze, and joy with joy, so God did not create for us anything in its meaning. Better than him, nor like him, nor close to him, and the ancients only depended on him.” Zaad al-Ma’ad. Al-Zuhairi said: “You should use honey, for it is good for preservation.”
