I learned these two ahadith (sayings) of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) when I was much younger. I was born in a Muslim household, which is how I was exposed these two sayings.
Prophet used to say that Honey is the cure for mankind; and, that Black Seed can cure anything except for Death. SearchTruth offers some more ahadith about these Prophetic Medicines; see post “92 hadith found in ‘Medicine’ of Sahih Bukhari“.
IslamiGems’ article “22 Top Benefits Uses of Honey | Prophetic Medicine” discusses several benefits of honey. Gulf Times’ article “Black Seed (Nigella sativa): A cure for every disease” shares some benefits of Black Seed.
A recent clinical research study conducted in Pakistan, US, Canada, and Chile show that a combination of Honey and Nigella Sativa (Black Seed) can heal severe and moderate illness caused by COVID-19. Read “Study suggests honey and Nigella sativa expedites viral clearance in COVID-19 patients“.
So Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) is definitely a great prophet because God showed him how to protect mankind.
