What is says about honey in the holy quran

Drinking honey and warm water on empty stomach is mentioned to be powerful in maintaining overall health. This is what Prophet Muhammad used to do every day. This way honey can be considered as both food and medicine, as it cleanses the arteries and bowels from impurities.
It is also related that he said: β€œHe who desires protection, let him eat honey”.

[Quran 16.68-69] And your Lord (Allah) revealed to the bees: Build your hives in mountains, trees and in what they build. Then eat from every fruit and follow your Lord’s enslaved paths, from its bellies exits drink of different colors, in it healing for man. These are signs for those who contemplate.

Waitrose are years ahead when it comes to reducing waste and saving our planet from plastic pollution, I am so impressed by waitroses refilling station’s!

The supermarket originally launched itsΒ UnpackedΒ test in its Oxford Botley Road shop in June, and, following an overwhelmingly positive response with more than 90 per cent of those surveyed saying they would continue to shop Unpacked, announced it would be extending the test there and in three more shops by the end of this year including Cheltenham.

Waitrose is seeking to get as much feedback as possible on its Unpacked test. Customers can share their thoughts via a feedback survey onΒ Waitrose.com/Unpacked, and by using #WaitroseUnpacked Twitter and Instagram.

Coffee refills – Customers can grind one of four coffees in store to take home in a reusable container to reduce glass and plastic packaging.

Mike Snowdon, Branch Manager at Waitrose & Partners Cheltenham, said:

β€œWe’re thrilled to be only the second of our shops to have Waitrose Unpacked and will be looking for as much feedback as possible from our customers. We’re still testing the different concepts so Cheltenham shoppers will have a huge say on how we can develop ideas which have the potential to be rolled out more widely.”
