Senna – Sana – Fan Xie Ye – Folium Senna

Ibn Qayyim in "Medicine of the Prophet" said, "Senna is hot and dry in the first degree and it is a good, mild medication that does not cause any side effects.”

Ibn Qayyim relates the hadith, “"How do you deal with constipation?" She said, "By using Shubrum (euphorbia piteous)." The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, it is hot and too strong a laxative." She then said. "In addition, use Senna," and the Prophet replied, "If there is a cure that prevents death, it would be Senna." Further, Ibn Majah narrated that Abudllah ibn Umm Haram said that he heard the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, saying: "Use Senno and Sanoot (cumin), because they cure every disease, except Saam." He was asked, "What is Saam?" He said, 'Death'. "”
