Nigella sativa is known as black seed. Islamic tradition suggests it is a universal cure.
For example, Bukhaari recorded in the Ninth Century that Muhammad is said to have claimed :
“This black seed is a cure for every disease except death.”
A recent review in an allegedly peer-reviewed journal suggests this idea is still around:
The researchers conducted laboratory experiments using intact animals and clinical trials using human volunteers to substantiate the validity of the statement. However, it is amazing that the researchers after carrying out hundreds of researches around the globe finally concluded that the Prophet‟s statement is one hundred per cent true.
Does the research show this?
