  1. AS Salaamu alaikum , I would certainly like to know what Handaqooq is and what its uses are. Is Handaqooq the Arabic name for an herb or plant that the English speaker would konw? Please share more information about it.

    Umm Ridhwaan Farihah

  2. Wa ‘alaikumus salaam wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. Handaqooq – Melilot (Yellow), Sweet Clover, Melilotus

    More info here.

    ~ has a negative impact on the nervous system
    ~contains a moderately toxic substance called Coumarin

    Uses – Handaqooq is a medicinal laxative, counteracts involuntary urination in children and is also used as a topical treatment for tumors.

    My herbal remedy book does not go into detail regarding preparations, dosages, etc. There may be some info available on-line.

    Wallaahu Aa’lam.
