Khardal ~ Mustard

Khardal (Mustard) is a miracle of my Allah’s creations; it is one of the few plants whose name is mentioned in QURAN.

وَإِن كَانَ مِثْقَالَ حَبَّةٍ مِّنْ خَرْدَلٍ أَتَيْنَا بِهَا وَكَفَى بِنَا حَاسِبِينَ

يَا بُنَيَّ إِنَّهَا إِن تَكُ مِثْقَالَ حَبَّةٍ مِّنْ خَرْدَلٍ فَتَكُن فِي صَخْرَةٍ أَوْ فِي السَّمَوَاتِ أَوْ فِي الأَرْضِ يَأْتِ بِهَا اللَّهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَطِيفٌ خَبِيرٌ

The tiny round seeds have a limited diameter, like the granules are coming out of a MOLD, & you may realize that each Mustard seed has its own diameter, a shape that differs with other seeds & I am sure that each seed has it own unique weight, which will differ in micro-grams & Nano-grams than other Mustard seeds, it is the Power of Allah which He Has Shown to the human. In the fields, Mustard plants look so beautiful, like the entire land has been painted with Yellow.

Mustard seeds come in a variety, & Masha’Allah that YELLOW are so beautiful, you have mostly seed the brown seeds.

Mustard seeds are high in Selenium, Magnesium, Omega 3, etc.

They are good for digestion, induce heat in the stomach, thus bringing impurities to maturity, decomposing the clogs & expelling them out vide stools. They are good for Sciatica patients & their properties are similar to Habb-al-Rashaad. Chewing Mustard seeds will reduce the toothache. Ground mustard seeds made as a paste in honey will open the blocked menstruation Insha’Allah.

They are the least used today, we just add them in pickles & the West has a habit of eating Mustard paste.
