Kalonji (Nigella sativa seeds)

A remedy for all diseases except Death (Prophet Muhammad PBUH)

Kalonji is the seeds of an annual flowering plant €œNigella sativa€. These humble but immensely powerful seeds are considered remedy/treatment for countless diseases and human health issues since time immemorial. The earliest record of its use and cultivation is from ancient Egypt dating back to approximately 3,300 years, the times of Pharaoh Tutankhamun. It looks like Onion seeds but has nothing to do with it. Both the plants are from different binomial Order/families.
