Hadith Explanation

Truffles for the Eye

Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The Kam’a is like Al-Manna and its water is a cure for eye trouble.” [Sahih Bukhari]

The Kam’a is truffle, a kind of edible fungus.

The great mufassir, Mujahid, said that Al-Manna was a kind of sweet gum. In Surah Baqarah ayat 57, Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) mentions His sending down of Al-Manna and Salwa as food for the Bani Israil while they were in the desert.

Kam’a has been likened to Al-Manna as it is obtained without any effort. This hadith mentions a medicinal property of Kam’a. It has cures for diseases of the eye.
