External application for Skin – Tibb-e-Nabawi

External application for Skin

إِنَّ اللَّهَ عِندَهُ عِلْمُ السَّاعَةِ وَيُنَزِّلُ الْغَيْثَ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الأَرْحَامِ وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ مَّاذَا تَكْسِبُ غَداً وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ بِأَيِّ أَرْضٍ تَمُوتُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ

Kalonji + Charaitah + Henna for skin disorders

Combination of Black seed (Kalaonji) & vinegar has diversified applications, Ibn Al Qayyam wrote :

وان سخن بالخل، وطلي على البطن، قتل حب القرع، وإذا طبخ بخل، وتمضمض به، نفع من وجع الأسنان عن برد، وإن ضمد به مع الخل، قلع البثور والجرب المتقرح، وحلل الأورام البلغمية المزمنة، والأورام الصلبة، وإذا أحرق وخلط بشمع مذاب بدهن السوسن، أو دهن الحناء، وطلي به القروح الخارجة من الساقين بعد غسلها بالخل، نفعها وأزال القروح‏.‏ وإذا سحق بخل، وطلي به البرص والبهق الأسود، والحزاز الغليظ، نفعها وأبرأها‏

When Black seed is heated with vinegar and placed on the stomach, it will eliminate helminthes (worms). When the black seeds are cooked in vinegar and then one rinses his mouth with them, they will relieve toothache resulting from sensitivity to cold. When it is used in a bandage while blended with vinegar, it heals spots and exposed skin ulcers and decomposes the acute mucus tumors and the hard tumors. When the Black Seed is burned and mixed with melted wax along with Henna or Iris oil, it helps remove the ulcers that appear on the skin of the legs, after washing the skin with vinegar. When the Black Seeds are crushed in vinegar and laid on leprous skin, the skin affected by black pigmentation and on the head that is affected by dandruff, it helps relieve these ailments.

Ibn Al Qayyam has used Vinegar repetitively, both for internal & external applications, so brewing your own vinegar is so essential.

For dandruff, Kalonji seeds should be ground with vinegar & applied on the head, but Dandruff results from dryness in stomach & when the body is deprived of natural Enzymes & Vitamins, So Olive Oil & raw vegetables should also be consumed. Henna is the best for wounds as an external applications, furthermore, Zareerah (Charaitah) is praised by Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam for skin disorders.

So based upon the research of our old Tabeebs, I combined :

The combination was soaked in one liter of pure home-made vinegar & kept for 3 weeks, after which the vinegar was strained.

I have used the infused vinegar as an external application for Acne, Eczema, etc. & Masha’Allah that it provides the relief so quickly. Dip a piece of cotton in the infused vinegar & apply over the effected skin, it dries immediately; do not wash the skin for at least 4 hours.

The healing of Tibb-e-Nabawi herbs is lost / hidden in the books.

While using Charaitah (either for internal / external applications), it is better to recite the Duaa of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam.

ذكر ابن السُّنى فى كتابه عن بعض أزواج النبىِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم، قالت: دخل علىَّ رسولُ الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وقد خرج فى أصبعى بَثْرَةٌ، فقال: “عِنْدَكِ ذَرِيرةٌ” ؟ قلت: نعم. قال: “ضَعيها عليها”، وقُولى: “اللَّهُمَّ مُصَغِّرَ الكَبِيرِ، ومُكبِّرَ الصَغِيرِ، صَغِّرْ مَا بِى” (حديث ضعيف).

Ibn As-Sunni said in his book that one of the wives of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam said “Once the Messenger of Allah came by when I had a pimple on my finger, he saw it & asked: “Do you have a Tharirah (arum or sweet Flag), I said, Yes”. He said, “Place it on the pimple. He then said, Say, “O Allah who Transforms the big to small and the small to big, make what I am suffering from small” (Weak Hadith).
