In Bukhari (Volume 7: Book 65), Aisha (RA) narrates that, "Allah's Apostle used to love sweet edible things and honey." He also attributed many healing powers to honey.

Honey is not just a sugar, but also a complexcombination of enzymes, organic acids, esters, antibiotic agents, trace minerals, and yet unidentified components! One pound of honeycontains 1.4 grams of protein, 23 milligrams of
calcium, 73 milligrams of phosphorus, 4.1 milligrams of iron, 1 milligram of niacin and 16milligrams of vitamin C. Honey has been attributed externally with healing wounds andburns, and making the skin supple and smooth. Internally, honey is a cure-all, with specific benefits for the digestive system andas a tonic for general health and well-being.
