Abstract:
The present research work is based on plant species mentioned in Holy Qur’an and Ahadith. The plants are perennial source of basic requisites, health and hygiene to human beings. The main aim of this study is to document the knowledge of ethno- medicinal importance of plants highlighted 1400 years back in the Noble Qur’an and the Ahadith (Tradition’s of Prophet Mohammad (SAW)) which have stood the test of the time. In view of the importance of this study comprehensive data was collected from Holy Qur’an, Ahadith books and the books written on the Islamic medicines Tibb-e-Nabvi. The Holy Qur’an is full of references to plants bearing fruits, vegetables, food and medicinal plants. It is concluded that ethno- medicinal plants are being widely used in the world because of better cultural acceptability, and no side effects. We propose to establish Quranic Botanical Gardens in collaboration with State Forest Departments and Private Institutions to cultivate and introduce Quranic /Prophetic plants in urban localities and open fields.
