HONEY AS MEDICINE
The Russians used honey to cover their wounds in World War II. The wound would retain moisture and would leave very little scare tissue. Due to the density of honey, no fungus or bacteria would grow in the wound. We are now aware that honey has a healing as well as a mild antiseptic property
The bee assimilates juices of various kinds of flowers and fruits and forms within its body the honey, which it stores in its cells of wax. The Holy Qur’an says:
"There issues from within their bodies a drink of varying colors wherein is healing for people." [Al-Qur’an 16:69]
Only a couple of centuries ago man came to know that honey comes from the belly of the bee. Thus fact was mentioned in the Qur’an 1,400 years ago.
