The Benefits of Honey Mentioned in the Quran


Your Lord revealed to the bees: "Build dwellings in the mountains and the trees, and also in the structures which people erect. Then eat from every kind of fruit and travel the paths of your Lord, which have been made easy for you to follow." From inside them comes a drink of varying colors, containing healing for humanity. There is certainly a Sign in that for people who reflect. (Surat an-Nahl: 68-69)

Dan Tuhanmu telah mewahyukan (mengilhamkan) kepada lebah: Buatlah rumah di atas bukit dan di atas pohon kayu dan pada apa yang mereka jadikan atap. Kemudian makanlah bermacam-macam buah-buahan, dan laluilah jalan Tuhanmu dengan mudah. Keluar dari dalam perutnya minuman (madu) yang berlainan warnanya, untuk menyembuhkan (penyakit) manusia. Sesungguhnya pada demikian itu menjadi tanda (atas kekuasaan Allah) bagi kaum yang memikirkan (Surah an-Nahl: 68-69)

Honey, along with its vitamins and minerals, is a great benefit for human health. It consists of sugar (glucose and fructose), minerals (calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium chlorine, sulfur, iron and phosphorus), and vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and C) .In addition, it contains small amounts of several kinds of hormones, copper, iodine, and zinc - in other words, almost everything that the human body needs.

The following information was released during the World Apiculture Conference held in 1993:
During the conference, a special session was held on the treatments associated with honey derivatives. American scientists stated that honey, royal jelly, pollen and propolis (bee resin) cure many diseases. A doctor from Romania said he tried honey on cataract patients, and 2002 out of his 2094 patients had full (95%) recovery. Polish doctors also informed that honeybee resin cure many diseases such as haemorrhoids, skin problems, gynaecological diseases and several other disorders .

Another feature of honey is that, compared with the same amount of sugar, it contains 40% less calories. Thus although it is a great energy provider, it does not add weight.
This low-calorie and tasty juice is easily digestable. Since honey's fructose molecules can convert into glucose, honey, despite its high acid content, is digested easily even by those suffering from stomach disorders.

Honey helps the kidneys and intestines to function better. Due to its free sugar molecules, it has a similar effect upon the brain. Meanwhile, it cleanses blood and the bloodstream and is instrumental in blood production. With the vast amount of energy it releases, it has the capacity needed to produce the energy that produces blood.

Honey protects the body against capillary problems and arteriosclerosis, and also kills bacteria. When accompanied with mild water, it mixes into the bloodstream within only 7 minutes, and thus is a good and fast curative for the body. When diluted with water, it acquires an antiseptic quality. Apart from this, honey contains such antibacterial chemicals as benzyl alcohol and many others.

The contribution of honeybees to human health is not limited to honey, for they also produce another product: royal jelly. Royal jelly, a strong-smelling substance secreted by worker bees to feed the queen bee, is another blessing for people, for it includes such minerals as phosphorus, calcium, iron, sodium, potassium and magnesium, vitamins B2, B3, and B6, as well as proteins and carbohydrates.
Royal jelly is used to treat disorders caused by tissue deficiency, arteriosclerosis, or bodily frailty.
