 Narrated Hisham’s father:`Aisha used to recommend at-Talbina and used to say, “It is disliked (by the patient) although it is beneficial.” (Bukhari)

 Also, Allah(SWT) says in Holy Quran: “But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” ( Baqarah:216)

Narrated ‘Urwa: Aisha used to recommend at-Talbina for the sick and for such a person as grieved over a dead person. She used to say, “I heard Allah’s Messenger(P.B.U.H.) saying, ‘at-Talbina gives rest to the heart of the patient and makes it active and relieves some of his sorrow and grief.'” (Bukhari)


 Keep trying different smoothies, detox drinks, infused water recipes? Have you ever tried this drink which is very easy to make yet highly nutritious? The drink is called Nabeedh and it is prepared by soaking a few dates or raisins in a glass of water overnight. It can be consumed the following day.

‘Abdullah (RAA) said that “I heard Sufyan being asked about Nabidh. He said: ‘Make Nabidh at night and drink it in the morning.'” (Sunan An-Nasai)

Abu Qatada (RAA) on the authority of his father reported the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) as having said, “Do not prepare Nabidh by mixing nearly ripe dates and fresh dates together, and do not prepare Nabidh by mixing grapes and dates together, but prepare Nabidh for each (one of them) separately.” (Sahih Muslim)

 Ibn Abbas (RAA) reported that Nabidh was prepared from raisins for Allah’s Messenger (P.B.U.H.) in the waterskin and he would drink it on that day and on the next day and the day following and when it was the evening of the third day, and he would drink it and give it to (his Companions) and if something was left over, he threw that away.  

(Sahih Muslim)
