Pomegranate in Islam Speaks to Well Being
Pomegranate in Islam is as symbol, it seems, of harvest,
wealth, and wellness. The writings of
the Quran refer to the fruit in three different instances and each time it
gives you the sense that it's talking about a great harvest, land of plenty,
and being good stewards of what has been provided.
The Islamic people believe in a man called Muhammad. Hadith, a term used in Islam, refers to
Muhammed's actions or views, whether positive or negative, in regards to
anything done or said while in his presence.
Hadith mentions the pomegranate a few times in addition to the
references seen in the Quran.
One Hadith reference indicates that this fruit and the skin
of the fruit are healthy for the stomach, making it stronger. The other mention refers to the fruit as if
it's somehow a holy fruit because it is believed by Islamic people to come from
the Garden of Jannah.
Another Hadith says that if you eat the fruit, you will be cleansed of
evil desires and Satan for forty days.
A well respected and learned man named Sayyiduna Ali
referred to the pomegranate in Islam, saying that "the light of Allah is
in the heart of whoever eats pomegranate".
His sayings are taught in the religion of Islam still today.
