Title: Is there any Hadith regarding black seeds (kolonji) that there is cure in black seeds for every disease except death?


Assalam U Alikum,

I want to ask Is there any Hadith regarding black seeds (kolonji) that there is cure in black seeds for every disease except death. If yes can you please tell the hadith with reference.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The hadith you query is

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ "‏ عَلَيْكُمْ بِهَذِهِ الْحَبَّةِ السَّوْدَاءِ فَإِنَّ فِيهَا شِفَاءً مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ إِلاَّ السَّامَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ وَالسَّامُ الْمَوْتُ 

Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: "Use this black seed. For indeed it contains a cure for every disease except As-Sam" And As-Sam is death. (Tirmidhi hadith 2176)

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
