Please Help.

I apologise if this is in the wrong forum. I am just hoping that it will reach someone who can help rather urgently.

I need the names of these herbs /flowers/leaves and one is in powder form, please could someone give me the names in English so I can try to obtain them from an English Herblist.

Or if you are able to give me the name of an ethnic herbalist in CEntral to West ish london preferable or else within the M25 or ELSE about an hour or so drive out of London.

Or available by post from any where I guess.

I would just like the herbs as soon as possible as I said above the matter is urgent and quite serious.

The names I have been give are below:

1. Khashbulward

2. Sheqaqul Mishk

3. Amber

4. Barggawozaban

5. Hilteet - this is in powder form

The above words could be in any language from Urdu Arabic or Farsi.

May the person(s) who help be rewarded in the world with all that they might wish for and with the best place in heavan for themselves and all their loved ones by the intercession of the 14 Infallibles to Allah SWT.

Didn't realise you posted twice. From the other thread:

I only recognise the last one - its called Asafoetida. It has a bitter taste and is yellowy powder, sometimes used in Indian & Pakistani cooking. You can get it from any Asian shop / supermarket - the East End Brand or others even, esp Southall area (Just ask for Helteet or Hing - same thing). If used in cooking, don't use more than half a teaspoon.

Amber in resin form, I' think, is Amber in English too. Try a chinese shop for this. They have odd herbs and flowers.

If all fails and you can't find out what the common names translate to in English, find out the scientific names of these herbs - it should be easier then.

Salam,

I am a qualified practitioner of Unani Tibb Eastern medicine.

I can send you details of an experienced Hakim in Leicester who may help you with treatment, but regarding the herbs you should really not be self administering unless you are a trained hakim or herbalist yourself.

All of these herbs will interact with other herbs, medicines and even foodstuffs to a lesser degree so you need knowledge of this.

Also not all herbs are suitable for all body types/mizaj, so please be careful.

I do not know the condition you are trying to treat, but you really need to have a hakim/hakima or herbalist take a look at you, assess your body type/mizaj, take your pulse etc.

I am not based anywhere near London, but as I said there is a well-established hakim in Leicester who you could visit as a patient if you wish for his details.

Allah hafez

Fatimeh

Malika and Zoya

Thank you for your assistance so far I was hopeful of getting help here and you have not failed me may Allah with the intercession of our 14 Infallibles bless you and your loved ones in this life and the next.

Oh and Zoya thanks for posting again and reminding me of the other post I will check that too.

Fatimeh

I will not be self administering but have been asked by an Alim to get hold of these I believe that they are for a "taweez" with dua and will be made into a small inch or so square parcel to be worn.

The Alim only has these names as they are and is not able to translate them in to English hence the problem with acquiring them here.

This is the information I have so far

3. Amber – St Johns Wart or also Amber in English could be obtained from a Chinese Herbalist

4. Barggawozaban – Borage officianalis

5. Hilteet - this is in powder form – assa-foetida or Hing - yes I know Hing

So now I would be most grateful to receive the English Names for the remaining items:

1. Khashbulward

2. Sheqaqul Mishk

    • Feel kindness toward your neighbors and friends, and make dua for them. When you see them, smile and be friendly. InShaAllah they will change their attitude toward you. 4th Imam AS - Supplication for his Neighbours and Friends (Supplication - 26) http://www.duas.org/sajjadiya/s26.htm
    • I don't disagree with anything you're saying, i'm just saying every place has its good and bad, and people often refer to the west as evil all the time, it is not in many ways, like the ways I pointed out. Things like socialist policies in education, health and social security/pensions are very islamic principles. A lot of the West's policies come from judeo-christian values, which aren't very different from Islam. Yes, it is true they have dropped a lot of religious laws now, like allowing abortions and lgbt marriages, but some laws have still stuck around that have roots in abrahamic tradition. No society can claim to be perfect. Iran is an islamic country, but I'm sure a lot of stuff happens underground too, and I'm sure there is still corruption within the government. Ultimately, bro, there is no perfect society, what's important is that you can practice islam freely and to the best of your ability and I think it is possible in many of the western countries, not possible in many of the sunni majority nations. 
    • well, for me personally right now...  I don't know how to prove hadith.  I sincerely honestly dont. Just because a hadith doesn't contradict the Quran doesnt mean its not fabricated.  People intending to twist and corrupt need merit or truths to spin a lie.  One can use something true in the quran like say Umar,   who says I believe in this verse " [verse]" and a good follower of it, but you don't know if he did, for example. It's difficult, and dang near impossible to "follow" and prove those hadiths are true (well, really impossible). I'm just thinking here and presenting my ideas. I would think A hadith that doesn't comtradict the Quran is off to a good start in terms of authenticity.  Reading hadith to understand historical context even if its not authentic actually may be beneficial.  It may explain and connect dots, for understanding why things happened the way they did. Though I've proven (in my personal perspective my long essay of a post) that Muhammad SAW did not err in delivering the message, but may have very well have subjectively  "err'd" in other matters (like when Allah indicates directly that the prophet may be disobeyed by women if they determine his command was not good) (60:12) And then you have 9:50 above, do you think its a good idea to follow any hadiths?  Maybe read them to gain historical understanding but follow them? Eh, its up to you or anyone to make that determination for themselves. I can't judge.   
    • A westernized version of islam? What does that actually mean?  The only interpretation/things I can think of are negative.  Does it mean a version of islam where western culture and values are integrated into it? I do not see the need for that. In the middle east, where you see muslims lacking in any area it is not because they do not apply "good" western values, its because they are applying the bad things of their own culture, meanwhile not caring about what Islam says. Dishonesty, cheating, poor work morale, back talking, not caring for the poor, being unfair, corruption in politics, these are things you might find in the middle east, but they are not because islam is lacking anything, it is because people are not adhering to it, why? Because that would take effort and sincerity. I do not think islam per say is lacking anything and that it needs to change a single inch in any direction. Times change, that is true, but humans does not.
    • Good luck in organic chemistry. My daughter was selected to do a STEM summer in a native Ed. program a few years back. Loved it. The term was not around when I was in school because I'm older than dirt now. But I did pass regular chem.
