Figs (Injeer) in Ahadith
۞ Hazrat Abu Darda (Radiallaho Anho) narrates that Rasullullah (Sallallaho Alaihi Wa’Sallam) said, “Eat fig, for it cures the piles and is useful for rheumatism”.

۞ Hazrat Abu Darda (Radiallaho Anho) narrates that someone presented the Prophet a plate of figs and he said, “Eat figs! If I would say a certain type of fruit was sent down to us from the heavens I would say it’s a fig because it has no seeds. It ends (cures) the piles and is useful for rheumatism.”

۞ The Prophet  (Sallallaho Alaihi Wa’Sallam) mentioned figs and then stated, “If I had to mention a fruit that descended from paradise I would say this is it, because the paradisiacal fruits do not have pits… eat from these fruits for they prevent hemorrhoids, piles and gout”(Bukhari).
