The Prophet(s) said,
"Use the Black Seed for indeed, it is a cure for all diseases except death."
Black seed or Kalonji or Nigella Sativa is one of the best natural medicines.
Ibnul Qaiyum (ra) said, “The black seed helps against all types of cold ailments… when ground, blended with honey and drunk with some water, it will dissolve the stones that appear in the kidney and the prostate…When it is heated with vinegar and placed on the stomach it will eliminate worms. It also clears up, decomposes and relieves cold symptoms when it is ground, placed in a rag and inhaled through the nose on a regular basis until the ailment is cured. Black seed oil… when twenty-five grams of it is drunk with water, it will help against gasping and hard breathing…”
[Translated ‘Medicine of the Prophet’ by Ibnul Qaiyum]

Black seed oil has been used to treat an array of medical conditions, including asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, inflammation, cough, headache, eczema, fever, dizziness and the flu.
In recent decades, scientific studies, primarily in animals, have preliminarily confirmed its potential for treat or mitigating various diseases.
Black seed oil has been linked to improved liver function and prevention of liver damage, liver disease, and both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, explains, a certified functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner. Plus, its chemical compounds have been shown to provide strong anti-pathogenic and anti-fungal properties.
It may also help improve blood pressure, blood lipids and even fight cancer, says Ferrari.
“There is also evidence that the seed oil is an antioxidant, and may have antibacterial properties when tested under laboratory conditions,” explains Susan Bowerman, a Los Angeles-based registered dietitian. As mentioned, though, there are limited human studies to back up the purported benefits of black seed oil, so it's difficult to draw any hard conclusions on its healing properties (at least, for now.)
