Breast Milk

Allah Ta’ala has Created everything perfectly. An example is breast milk.

Some of the natural benefits are:

  • It is perfectly balanced in nutrients
  • It has antibodies which help baby fight infection and illness, as well as preventing allergies, eczema and asthma
  • It is ready to drink any time, without preparation

The best benefit:
A Sahaabi (radhiallahu anh) inquired from the Prophet (sallallahu alahi wa sallam) about his eloquence of speech which none of them had. Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) replied, "Are you aware of which ladies’ milk I have drunk? A blessed lady from the Banu S’ad by the name of Haleemah as-Sa’deeyah. I have drunk her milk. This is the effect of her milk that Allah has bestowed this excellence to me." (Sahaabeeyaat, M Patel, P 55)

A mother’s milk brings with it her character as well. If she is pious, spiritual light flows from her to the child.
