Pomegranates in the Qur’an: Yummy Yummy :)
Pomegranates are so juicy, delicious, nutritious, yummy yummy, right?
There was a mention about pomegranates in one of ayahs discussed yesterday, which inspired me to come up with this post!
Peeling and eating pomegranate seeds is so exotic, entertaining and lovely experience 🙂 Having a super cool drink of this amazing fruit is refreshing and relaxing 🙂
Allah, the Creator, uses the word “Rum’maan” for pomegranates in the Qur’an, and Rum’maan occurs three times in Qur’an.
1. Sweet, juicy, and delicious, this exotic fruit is from Allah’s sustenance to mankind on earth:
“And it is He who sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby the growth of all things. We produce from it greenery from which We produce grains arranged in layers. And from the palm trees – of its emerging fruit are clusters hanging low. And [We produce] gardens of grapevines and olives and pomegranates, similar yet varied. Look at [each of] its fruit when it yields and [at] its ripening. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe”. (Surah al An-‘aam 6: 99)
2. Allah’s creation is not only beautiful but artistic as well:
“And He it is who causes gardens to grow, [both] trellised and untrellised, and palm trees and crops of different [kinds of] food and olives and pomegranates, similar and dissimilar. Eat of [each of] its fruit when it yields and give its due [zakah] on the day of its harvest. And be not excessive. Indeed, He does not like those who commit excess”. (Surah al An’aam 6: 141)
3. Rum’maan is one of the fruits of Jannah:
“Therein will be fruits and dates and pomegranates.” (Surah Ar-Rahmaan 55: 68)
Pomegranates are rich in vitamins B and C, and many antioxidants.Pomegranate juice has three times the amount of polyphenols that are found in green tea. Polyphenols are antioxidants that in theory may protect against cancer and heart disease.
Ibn al-Qayyim in his book “The Prophetic Medicine” mentioned two types of pomegranate: sweet and sour. Some of the health benefits he mentioned for a sweet pomegranate are that it is good for the stomach, throat, chest and lungs, it can help a cough, and is excellent nourishment for the body. Sour pomegranate can be beneficial for an inflamed stomach, cuts short diarrhoea, and can prevent vomiting. (You can download the book from this link: Prophetic Medicine/Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet)
Modern research has linked the pomegranate with the following health benefits:
Supports cardiovascular health; a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology found that patients who drank pomegranate juice daily had improved heart function.
Help support a healthy immune system;
Help support normal blood pressure levels;
Help maintain healthy joint function;
Assist in maintaining oral/dental health;
Can inhibit cancer cell growth.
Eat, Drink, Enjoy!
But no wasting!!
“O children of Adam, take your adornment at every masjid, and eat and drink, but be not excessive. Indeed, He likes not those who commit excess.” (Surah al A’raaf 7: 31)
May Allah make us one among those who thank Him after every time they eat and drink. Aameen.
Jazakallahu Khayra for reading this post. Vassalam.
