    Amazing Facts About Onion






    A friend of mine told me a story about when he was a kid he was in the hospital & nearly dying. His grandmother came to the hospital & told a family member to go buy her a large onion & a new pair of white cotton socks. She sliced the onion open then put a slice on the bottom of each of his feet & put the white cotton socks on him. In the morning when he awoke they removed the socks. The slices of onion were black & his fever was gone. The following story that someone sent to me might have some truth in it & we are going to try it this winter.

    In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.

    The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

    Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in AZ. She said that several years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must work.. (And no, she is not in the onion business.)

    The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office or under your desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens. We did it last year and we never got the flu.

    For flu cure:
    Cut both ends off an onion put one end on a fork and then place the forked end into an empty jar... placing the jar next to the sick patient at night. It said the onion would be black in the morning from the germs... sure enough it happened just like that... the onion was a mess and I began to feel better.

    Onions and garlic placed around the room saved many from the black plague years ago. They have powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties.

    One more thing, never store cut onions and consume the next day.

    I would rephrase it like this, don't eat onions before going to the mosque. If you phrase like you have, people will find excuse for not going to the mosque.

    about the doctor finding, under the microscope, the flu virus on the onion in 1919!! i think should be taken with a pinch of salt as you can't see virus under the regular microscop. you need an electron microscope to see virus, and in 1919 there were no electron mics.

    Those who love Islam, will read it the right way and those who have weak beliefs will and are always looking for excuses.

    we on the other hand should try to teach them the real Islam, Islam of mercy, Islam of trust and Islam of helping the needy and checking the greedy. Islam of equality.

    Allah S.W.T. have given us two Rules to follow.

    1. Haqooq Allah. S.W.T.

    2. haqooq ul Abad

    And he further explains that on the day of judgement he might forgive his rules, but he will not forgive those who abused Human rights. ( Haqooq=UL-Abad)

    I hope that all those who read it understand the difference between these two rules.
