Cucumber is such a loving fruit that develops from the flower of the cucumber plant. It contains seed and has a high water content(About 96%). It nourishes the body by providing great hydration. It can be eaten raw or peeled before eating, depending on choice. It’s back is very rich in fiber and one can never take too much except on a medical exemption or reactive body system.

Cucumber originated in India. Large genetic variety of cucumber has been observed in different parts of India. The cucumber has been cultivated for at least 3,000 years in Western Asia, and was probably introduced to other parts of Europe by the Romans. Records of cucumber cultivation appear in France in the 9th century, England in the 14th century, and in North America by the mid-16th century.{Culled from Wikipedia).

In Islam, the best of mankind also endorsed cucumber. It is one of the favorite fruit of Rasulullah (SAW). There exists a prophetic hadith relating that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) used to eat qiththa (cucumber) with rutab (fresh dates). [Tirmidhi At’ima 37]

Love of Cucumber

The benefits of cucumber are too numerous to mention but worthy of notes are the following:

  • Cucumber takes care of the mouth by providing freshness of breath and constant intake heals the gum if affected with the disease.
  • Cucumber helps to regulate the blood pressure from fluctuations.
  • It provides relief to the body from excessive heat of sunburn and heartburn.
  • Very useful in hair conditioning and nail polishing.
  • It is a very strong pain reliever of the muscles and joints.  
  • Cucumber is usually employed for skin treatment because of its mineral content; potassium, magnesium, and silicon.
  • It cleanses the kidney and flushes toxins out of the body system by lowering uric acid levels.
  • It is very rich in vitamins which aids good immune system of the body.
  • It is effective in weight loss therapy when combined with some other fruits like lemon. It contains sterols which reduce cholesterol.
  • It helps the eyes to get clearer and eradicates puffiness.

As if all these benefits are not enough, It is worrisome that the unhealthy use of cucumber is now trending. At the mere mention of cucumber and women in any gathering now, It wouldn’t be of a surprised look on hearing “Insertions” It ranges from inserting into the vagina for masturbation, peeling off the back and inserting into the vagina for cleansing. Where all these recommendations emanated from remains a mystery. In my entire life till now, I’m yet to come across any conclusive research or medical article or any pronouncement from any quarter validating the effectiveness of cucumber for vaginal cleansing.

Any woman that values her health should not for whatever reason, share in this practice. Rinsing or washing with water might not be enough to clean up the germs that might be present in its back. The vaginal is self-cleansing. Allah had already perfected its creation. As for masturbation, the religious stance is no longer debatable. We all should go back to our scriptures to learn more. If you’ve got any infection, go to the hospital for diagnosis. The underlying cause will determine the treatment procedure to follow. Stop harming your vagina, It’s vaginal abuse.

The unguarded love for cucumber should neither make us derail from the path of righteousness nor subjects us to body ailment.
