Importance of Pomegranate in Holy Quran and Hadith
April 28, 2013
By Allah Dad Khan
There are Three references of the Pomegranate in the Qur’an under the name of Rumman (its Qur’anic name).
The references can be found in;
“We bring forth the green blade from, which we bring forth the thick clustered grain; and from the date palm, from the pollen thereof, spring pendant bunches; and (We bring forth) gardens of grapes, and the olive and the pomegranate, alike and unlike.”[Surah vi,Verse 99]
“He it is Who produceth gardens trellised and untrellised, and the date palm, and crops of divers flavor, and the olive and the pomegranate , like and unlike. “Surah vi,Verse 141]
“Wherein is fruit, the date palm and pomegranate .Which is it, of the favors of your Lord, that ye deny?” [Surah LV ,Verse 68]
There are also a number of hadith on the Pomegranate;
“There is not a pomegranate which does not have a pip from one of the pomegranate of the Garden(of Jannah) in it.”[Abu Nu’aim]
“Pomegranate and its rind strengthen digestion (stomach).”
[narrated Ali(radhiyallahu anhu), Abu Nuaim, Al-Jozi]
Wherein is fruit, the date palm and pomegranate .Which is it, of the favors of your Lord, that ye deny?”- Quran
Sweet pomegranate are preferred over the sour. The juice stems coughs. All kinds of pomegranate settle palpitations of the heart.
Sayyiduna Ali said that the light of ALLAH is in the heart of whoever eats pomegranate.
It is also reported that one who eats three pomegranate in the course of a year will be inoculated against ophthalmia-( inflammation of the eye) for that year.
Pomegranate “cleanses you of Satan and from evil aspirations for 40 days.” Hadith
Narrated Anas bin Malik (may Allah be pleased with him): Allah’s Messenger (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “There is none amongst the Muslims who plants a tree or sows a seed, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it, but it is regarded as a charitable gift from him.”
Plants, along with all of creation, essentially fulfill two key functions. They are living beings in their own right, worshipping and glorifying Allah in a manner that we cannot perceive. They have also been placed on Earth for the benefit of human and animal life, so beautifully illustrated in Surah ‘Abasa:
Then let man look at his food:
We pour forth water in abundance.
And we split the earth in clefts.
And we cause therein the grain to grow,
And grapes and clover plants,
And olives and date palms,
And gardens with many dense trees,
And fruits and herbage
(To be) a provision and benefit for you and your cattle.
Pomegranates, along with dates and olives, are also mentioned in the following verse from the Holy Qur’an, which speaks of the dues that have to be paid upon each harvest, as well as the evil of wastefulness.
And it is He Who produces gardens trellised and untrellised,
And date-palms, and crops of different shape and taste and olives, and pomegranates, similar (in kind) and different (in taste).
Eat of their fruits when they ripen, but pay the due thereof on the day of its harvest,
And waste not by extravagance.
Verily, He likes not those who waste by extravagance.
Sweet pomegranate are preferred over the sour. The juice stems coughs. All kinds of pomegranate settle palpitations of the heart. Hazrat Ali(r.a.) said that the light of ALLAH is in the heart of whoever eats pomegranate. It is also reported that one who eats three pomegranate in the course of a year will be inoculated against ophthalmia for that year. Said the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) : Pomegranate “cleanses you of Satan and from evil aspirations for forty days.”
