Milk is good for YOU


Milk is considered the most blessed drink Almighty Allah SWT ever created. It is both a food and a drink at the same time. Almighty Allah SWT says in the Qur’an, “In cattle is a lesson for you; We give you a drink they carry in their glands, that issues from between a secreting mucus (of the pituitary gland) and blood…” (16:66).

Furthermore, it is related that God’s Messenger (pbuh) said, “Whenever one partakes in a meal of God’s provisions, he must pray: ‘Lord bless what You gave us, and provide us with what is best,’ and whenever God provides someone with a drink of milk, he must pray, ‘Lord bless what you gave us, and increase our share of it,’ for I do not know of anything that can rival milk, or be a substitute for it, being simultaneously both food and drink.” (Reported in Sunan Abu Dawood).

The best type of milk to drink is that which is fresh, has a bright white colour and a delicate sweetness. Milk helps alleviate depression and distress in adults and also helps to calm the spirit. It is important to rinse the mouth with water after drinking milk as this was the Sunnah of God’s beloved Messenger (pbuh) who once commented, because “it contains fat.” (Reported in Sahih al Bukhari and Muslim).

According to the Dairy Council, the benefits of drinking fresh milk include healthy bone growth due to milk’s composition of calcium, phosphorous, protein and magnesium, and the healthy growth of teeth in children. Milk along with a balanced and healthy diet helps reduce blood pressure, instances of type-2 diabetes, some forms of cancer, cardiovascular diseases and obesity.

A little honey can be added to milk that has been gently warmed up and then mixed thoroughly. This sweet milk should then be chilled before drinking. It is important to note that milk sweetened with sugar rather than honey causes plumpness of the body and face.

Milk should never be drunk excessively since it can cause dimness of the sight, aching of the joints, tooth and gum troubles and intolerance to lactose. Adding honey to milk when drinking can help alleviate these symptoms. Cow’s milk is the best type of milk since it is the most balanced and cows tend to graze on a wider range of plants than other animals.
