وَمَن يُسْلِمْ وَجْهَهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَهُوَ مُحْسِنٌ فَقَدِ اسْتَمْسَكَ بِالْعُرْوَةِ الْوُثْقَى وَإِلَى اللَّهِ عَاقِبَةُ الأُمُورِ
Massage Oil for PAINS
By infusing some herbs in the blessed Olive Oil, you can have the best Analgesic of this world, & you will definitely forget all the rest of Balms, Vapo-rubs, creams, etc. that provide relief for few hours only.
Olive Oil is for cooking & massaging but unfortunately, we rarely use it for cooking. MASSAGE is necessary even for a healthy person, but we have neglected this therapy & hence our joints & bones are weak. Allah Said :
يُوقَدُ مِن شَجَرَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُونَةٍ لا شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَلاَ غَرْبِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِىءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ
“Lit from a blessed tree, on olive, neither of the east (i.e. neither it gets sun rays only in the morning) nor of the west (i.e. nor it gets sun rays only in the afternoon. but it is exposed to the sun all day long), whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself), though no fire touched it”. (24:35)
Cooking & Massaging by Olive Oil is recommended by Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam.
وللبَيْهَقِى وابن ماجه أيضاً: عن ابن عمر رضى الله عنه، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: (ائْتَدِمُوا بالزَّيتِ، وادَّهِنُوا به، فإنه من شَجَرَةٍ مُبَارَكةٍ).
Al-Bayhaqi and Ibn Majah also narrated that Abdullah bin Umar Radi Allaho Anh reported that Messenger of Allah Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam said: “Use the oil in your curries and apply it as on ointment (for massaging) because it is from a blessed tree (olive tree)”.
And when some herbs are infused in the blessed Oil, its healing is enhanced.
Imam Zahabi said that Qust Oil is good for back pain, he also quoted a Hadith for a Sahabi, who was directed (by Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) about using Henna Khazaab for the pain in his legs. So we combined Qust-al-Bahri & Henna to be infused in Olive Oil. From the family of Analgesic herbs, Amba Haldi (Mango Ginger) is the most famous, but it has a drawback that it imparts a dark yellow color to the oil which creates stains on the clothes, same is with Ratanjot which gives a dark Purple color. Among all those herbs, we selected Sumbul Al-Teib (Baalchar ~ Jatamansi) only. Qust & Henna will be enough if you can’t find Sumbul.
Take 100 grams of Qust-al-Bahri (powdered), 50 grams of dried Henna leaves (powdered), & 50 grams of Sumbul-al-Teeb ( Balchar / Nardostachys Jatamansi), never use the powdered Henna supplied in the market as it has colors & chemicals. At lowest heat, boil these herbs in one liter of Olive Oil for 30 minutes while stirring continuously, when the oil cools down, filtrate carefully before bottling. Stirring is necessary, otherwise the herbs will burn before releasing their effect.
Best time for massaging is before going to bed, gently massage the oil over painful areas till all the oil is well absorbed in the skin, and cover with clothes to protect from the fan or A/C. Next morning, you will be surprised that pains have reduced drastically. Even for people having pain in the heels which is maximum when they wake-up in the morning, massaging the feet & heels with this oil will show beautiful results. The oil is best for lower back pain, Sciatica, Osteo-Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Gout, etc. The oil provides relief for at least 16 ~ 20 hours, with regular use, the pains will reduce & disappear Insha’Allah; furthermore, the oil will strengthen your bones.
