Why Prophet Discourage People from Adding Garlic to their Daily Foods - Mc Ebisco

Garlic is considered a vegetable. It belongs to the onion family, alongside shallots, leeks, and chives.

Summary Garlic comes from an edible plant with a bulb, stem, and leaves. Therefore, it’s botanically considered a vegetable

As explained by Ibn Al Qayyam, it is clear that garlic as a regular food should be avoided and is beneficial only as a medicine whenever required.

Garlic is similar to an onion (with bad smell) and it is mentioned in Hadith that whoever intends to eat garlic, he should kill the odor by cooking it well.

Some food containing garlic was brought to Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam, and he sent it to Abu Ayyub Ansari Radi Allaho Anh. The Sahabi requested that Ya Rasool Allah, you dislike it for yourself & sent it for me? Our Prophet replied, “I talk & whisper to the Almighty LORD to whom you do not”.

Garlic is hot & dry in the forth degree, creates heat in the human body, its regular use causes dryness, but is beneficial for cold natured people, similarly, garlic is good for a person having a phlegmatic nature & the one who is in danger of catching Faalij (CVA). Garlic dries out the sperm, opens the clogs in stomach, takes out the gases, helps in food digestion, it can cause loose stools & it is a diuretic, it works as an antidote against inflammations & bites of poisonous insects.

If ground garlic is applied as a poultice on areas bitten by snake / scorpion, it will suck out the poison. Garlic keeps the body warm, expels out the phlegm, cleanses the throat & nullifies the bad affect of changing water (especially for a traveler who has to drink water from various sources), garlic is fantastic for old cough, it is consumed as raw, cooked & roasted, removes the chest pain caused by coldness, & expels out leech / insects from the throat

If ground garlic is mixed with vinegar, salt & honey & applied on a broken tooth, will fragmentize the tooth & will easily take out the tooth from gums, & the same mixture is also helpful for killing tooth-ache. If ground garlic is taken with honey water, it kills phlegm & the intestinal worms; garlic mixed with pure honey & applied on BARAS (Leukoderma / Vitiligo) reduces depigmentation of the skin.

But garlic has many bad properties as well, it causes headache, weakens the brain & vision, creates sexual debility, causes excessive thirst, increases yellow bile & spoils the odor of breath, its bad odor will go away if rue leaves are chewed after eating it.
