Serahkanlah MADU padaku..

Dengan ini,Saya,Aena mahu berbicara mengenai bakal madu saya..eHh salah2..hahaa!!! bukan begitu.. emm yang betulnya, nak berbicara pasal suatu makanan khazanah Islam yang semua manusia sedia maklum iaitu Madu Lebah or Honey . Memang popular madu ni tambah2 apabila musim peperiksaan tiba..wahh kenapa nak makan madu yea??? Sebelum mengatur langkah bercakap mengenai sari madu ini,pastinya ada suatu bukti yang menjustifikasikan madu lebah memiliki pelbagai khasiatnya.

So, Let's go!! we dig the Quran to show the prove!

وَأَوۡحَىٰ رَبُّكَ إِلَى ٱلنَّحۡلِ أَنِ ٱتَّخِذِى مِنَ ٱلۡجِبَالِ بُيُوتً۬ا وَمِنَ ٱلشَّجَرِ وَمِمَّا يَعۡرِشُونَ (٦٨) ثُمَّ كُلِى مِن كُلِّ ٱلثَّمَرَٲتِ فَٱسۡلُكِى سُبُلَ رَبِّكِ ذُلُلاً۬‌ۚ يَخۡرُجُ مِنۢ بُطُونِهَا شَرَابٌ۬ مُّخۡتَلِفٌ أَلۡوَٲنُهُ ۥ فِيهِ شِفَآءٌ۬ لِّلنَّاسِ‌ۗ إِنَّ فِى ذَٲلِكَ لَأَيَةً۬ لِّقَوۡمٍ۬ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ )٦٩

" And your Lord revealed to the bee, Make hives in the mountains and in the trees and in what they build. Then eat of all the fruits and walk in the ways of your Lord submissively. There comes forth from their bellies a beverage of many colours, in which there is healing for mankind. Verily in this is a sign for those who give thought " [Al-Nahl:68,69]
We all know that bees produce honey. In addition to this information our God Almighty has informed us that there is a special ability in honey to heal and cure diseases. One should drink honey even when he is healthy ,as this is a Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad SAW,thus confirmed by this hadeeth:

" Anas, may Allah be pleased with him, reported: I served drink to Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) in this cup of mine: Honey, Nabidh, Water and Milk " [Bukhari & Muslim]

As long as one is a Muslim, sayings of Allah SWT in the Quran and Muhammad SAW in his hadeeth, are more than sufficient to constitute a belief about something as compared to any other source. Some people base their beliefs on scientific research and facts even if they contradict the Quran and hadeeth, not realizing that science is a system of knowledge or observation by human beings and human beings are prone to errors.

Thus if science contradicts any views of the the Quran or Sunnah then it is science that is wrong, not the Quran or hadeeth. However scientific research that is in accordance with the Quran and hadeeth has helped us a lot to understand some issues in much greater depth.

Below is a scientific research done by Russian Research on honey and its not because of this research that we are going to constitute the belief about healing ability of honey. We are just going to use it as a tool to praise and appreciate the sayings of Allah SWTand His prophet about honey, to which we have already established our belief and faith regarding its (honey's) healing capabilities.

  • In the oldest medical papyri of Egypt, dating back to 1553-1550 BC, there are indications that honey was used to heal wounds, ‘in order to cause urination’(Perkumuhan melalui pundi kencing..), and ‘as a means of easing the belly’.
  • In Mesopotamia and Assyria, too, honey was used for healing and is mentioned among remedies on the tablets found in the library of Ashur-bani-pal.
  • In Indian medicine it was considered that honey could be used both as a remedy and as an analeptic.(medicine usually refer to respiratory analeptic which is the Central Nervous System stimulant medication, use to stimulate muscles of breathing thus improving respiration) haa da masuk subjek medic dah ni!!
  • The tonics prescribed ‘to give pleasure’ and ‘to preserve youth’ were mainly prepared from honey. And a diet in which honey and milk were the main items was thought to prolong life.
  • In ancient Greece honey was considered one of nature’s most precious gifts. The Greek philosopher Democritus, creator of atomic theory, said, when asked for advice on how to live and how to keep in good health, that one should anoint one’s interior with honey and one’s exterior with oil.
  • Hippocrates, the Greek doctor, prescribed honey extensively and successfully for many diseases. Honey taken with other food, he said was nutritious and improved the complexion.
  • Galen, the great Roman physician, considered honey an all-purpose remedy, recommending it to treat many kinds of poisoning and intestinal ailments, in particular gangrenous stomatitis.
  • Later in the Arab East, honey was extensively used by doctors. The greatest medical authority of mediaeval times, Ibnu-Sina (or Avicenna), gave dozens of recipes in his Canon that included honey and beeswax among the ingredients.
  • Of the medical gruel that was eaten by scholars and philosophers he wrote: ‘It helps you when you have a runny nose, cheers you up, makes you feel fit, facilitates the digestion of food, gets rid of wind, and improves the appetite. It is almost a provision for retaining youth, making the memory better, sharpening the wits, and loosening the tongue. ’ He considered honey to have absorbing properties and recommended a wafer (tapitma) made of honey and wheat flour without water to treat wounds. The wafer was placed on the surface of the wound and changed every twelve hours until healthy tissue grew. Ibnu-Sina also wrote that honey had a beneficial effect on deep, contaminated ulcers.
  • Nowadays.... Modern experiments and observations indicate that there is every reason to consider honey a remedy. To what does it owe its curative properties? Mainly to the glucose it contains, which has an invigorating effect on the cardiovascular system, but also to its many other substances that improve the resistance of the organism.
and now, i wanna talk about Uses of Honey in our daily..
  • For Children,honey is the best sensible diet taken with their food compared to sugar. Useful for their development.It is advisable to give them a teaspoon of honey two or three times a day, but the dose should not exceed 30 to 40 grams daily.
  • Dentists have no doubts about the harmful effect of sugar on the teeth. It has been established that the remains of sugar in the mouth break down, under the effect of bacteria, to form acids, particularly lactic acid, which leads to slow but considerable decalcification of the teeth and to caries. Honey, on the other hand, has active antibiotic properties and in the fact disinfects the mouth.
  • As honey Inhalations,good therapeutic effects have been obtained when honey is inhaled into the upper respiratory tract(organ2 di sepanjang salur pernafasan sebelum trachea). The observations of Dr. Ya.A.Kiselstein, reported in 1938, are of special interest in this respect. He employed an ordinary inhalation apparatus adapted to atomize aqueous solutions, and used a 10 per cent solution of honey. Each session of treatment lasted five minutes. One of his cases, 32 years of age, had suffered for several years from a feeling of dryness in the pharynx and loss of voice. The nasal mucosa and the back of the pharynx were more or less normal, but the laryngeal mucosa and the upper sections of the trachea were covered with suppurative scabs. After seven inhalations the patient felt better and the scabs and hoarseness disappeared.
  • Since olden day honey has been reputed an all-purpose remedy for colds, not simply on its own, but mixed with other foods and medicines. People with colds are recommended to take honey with warm milk (one tablespoon of honey to glass of milk) or with lemon (the juice of one lemon to a hundreds grams of honey).
  • The muscle of the heart is working continuously and needs glucose in order to make up the energy expended. When a very small quantity of glucose (0.1 per cent) is added to the physiological saline in which an isolated heart is immersed, the heart will continue working outside the body for four days.(pump di luar badan,macam alat mainan lak..hhii)
  • Honey causes the veins to expand and improves circulation through the coronary arteries. With prolonged prescription of honey (50 to 140 -- on an average 70 -- grams of honey daily for one to two months) patients with heart trouble feel better in themselves, the composition of their blood returns to normal, their haemoglobin level increases, and cardiovascular tonus improved.
  • for eyes???? Ibnu-Sina recommended honey mixed with onion juice, clover, or wheatgrass for the eyes. In the last century honey was held by some writers to be a good remedy for burns, especially those affecting the eyes, and an excellent cure for inflammation of the eye. It has not lost its importance today, even when medicine has been enriched with a host of new preparations (sulphonamides, antibiotics, etc.), and is, in fact, highly effective for certain diseases of the eyes.
  • Omsk Medical Institute (Maximenko) has used honey extensively to treat herpetic and uncerous keratitis, and as a means of resorption in cases of opacity of the cornea or vitreous body, immature or initial cataract, and burns affecting the eye.
  • In 1946 A.E.Helfman reported having treated patients with torpid wounds at an evacuation hospital by means of honey electrophoresis. His observations of 35 patients with fractures due to gunshot wounds, complicated by osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone marrow), indicated that honey electrophoresis induced active development of granulation. After treatment the wounds, which had been covered with flaccid anaemic granules full of pus, became cleaner, blood flowed freely in them, and they began to heal.
  • then, honey also can be used as a remedy, or as part of the diet, in the treatment of several gastro-intestinal ailments, for instance in cases of gastritis or gastric ulcer in which there is hyperacidity(high acid contained in stomach).
  • Honey is known to have a favourable effect on the nervous system. Clinical observations are that hypertonic solutions of glucose take effect rapidly in the treatment of some diseases of the nervous system. And usually, after two or three injections, headaches lessen, the sight improves, and so on. People with nervous conditions or suffering from exhaustion are recommended to drink glass of water in which honey and the juice of half a lemon have been dissolved, or to eat two tablespoons of honey, before going to bed.

and now...let us look What Malays has listed out the 'khasiat of Madu lebah' hoho~ jom baca jom!!!

*Tahukah Anda, betapa madu merupakan sumber makanan penting yang disediakan Allah SWT untuk manusia melalui serangga kecil ini?

*Madu tersusun atas beberapa senyawa gula seperti glukosa dan fruktosa serta sejumlah mineral seperti magnesium, kalium, kalsium, natrium, belerang(sulfur), besi, dan fosfat. Madu juga mengandung vitamin B1, B2, C, B6 dan B3 yang komposisinya berubah-ubah sesuai dengan kualitas nektar dan serbuk sari. Di samping itu, dalam madu terdapat pula sejumlah kecil tembaga, yodium, dan seng, serta beberapa jenis hormon.

*Manfaat madu lainnya dapat dijelaskan di bawah ini:

: Oleh sebab molekul gula pada madu dapat berubah menjadi gula lain (misalnya fruktosa menjadi glukosa), madu mudah dicerna oleh perut yang paling sensitif sekalipun, walau memiliki kandungan asam yang tinggi. Madu membantu ginjal dan usus untuk berfungsi lebih baik.

Rendah kalori:jika dibandingkan dengan jumlah gula yang sama, kandungan kalori madu 40% lebih rendah. Walau memberi energi yang besar, madu tidak menambah berat badan.

Serapanp lebih cepat melalui darah: Jika dicampur dengan air hangat, madu dapat serap ke dalam darah dalam waktu tujuh minit. Molekul gula bebasnya membuat otak berfungsi lebih baik kerana otak merupakan pengguna gula sebagai sumber tenaga terbesar.

Membantu pembentukan darah: Madu menyediakan banyak tenaga yg diperlukan oleh tubuh untuk pembentukan darah. Lebih jauh lagi, ia membantu pembersihan darah. Madu berpengaruh positif dalam mengatur dan membantu peredaran darah. Madu juga berfungsi sebagai pelindung terhadap masalah pembuluh kapilari dan arteriosklerosis.

Membunuh bakteria: Sifat madu yang membunuh bakteria disebut "inhibition effect". Penelitian tentang madu menunjukkan bahwa sifat ini meningkat dua kali lipat bila dilarutkan dengan air.

Royal jelly: Royal jelly adalah zat yang diproduksi lebah pekerja di dalam sarang. Zat bergizi tinggi ini mengandung gula, protein, lemak, dan banyak vitamin. Royal jelly digunakan untuk merawat masalah-masalah yang disebabkan oleh kekurangan jaringan kapilari darah atau kelemahan tubuh.

Memang tersurat kat sini bahawasanya madu yang dihasilkan oleh haiwan sekecil lebah mampu memberikan khasiat kepada kita manusia yang besar ini.
Walau apapun mereka melakukan tugas,bukan berseorangan,tetapi dalam kumpulannya...
So, GoTong-royong is the message today!!hahaha....tak kira lah dalam kelas kah,rumah kah,atau kat mana sahaja ekosistem yang kita wuju
