And [recall] when you said, "O Moses, we can never endure one [kind of] food. So call upon your Lord to bring forth for us from the earth its green herbs and its cucumbers and its garlic and its lentils and its onions." [Moses] said, "Would you exchange what is better for what is less? Go into [any] settlement and indeed, you will have what you have asked." And they were covered with humiliation and poverty and returned with anger from Allah [upon them]. That was because they [repeatedly] disbelieved in the signs of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That was because they disobeyed and were [habitually] transgressing. (Quran 2:61).
Garlic has traditionally been used as a natural health remedy to treat various ailments for centuries both as a fresh plant and as a supplement. Research continues to demonstrate its antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-cancer, anti-tension and anti-blood coagulation properties. It also regulates blood sugar, is high source of vitamin C and iodine and overall strengthens your immune system. It truly is one of nature's miracle foods.
The “Alhamdulillah Series” was inspired by Ruzky Aliyar who featured a series of nature images with the tagline “Alhamdulillah”. The series was profiled on Muslim Matters during the Winter of 2012 and quickly drew praise for the simplicity of the message. Building upon this effort to remember the many blessings of Allah, Khaleafa.com has picked up the initiative and will continue to highlight the many signs of Allah.
“There truly are signs in this for people who reflect.” (Quran 13:3)
