Alhamdulillah for Pomegranates


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 (Quran 6:141).

Anas bin Malik narrated that the Prophet Muhammad said, "There is not a pomegranate which does not have a pip from one of the pomegranate of the Garden(of Jannah) in it" (Abu Nu'aim).

It’s pomegranate season! The pomegranate is a superfruit packed with antioxidants, vitamins B5 and C, potassium and fibre. It improves heart health and helps to manage the body’s glycemic index (helping to prevent diabetes). Alhamdulillah for pomegranates.

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)
