Scientific Topics- Scientific Topics from Sermons- Lesson(55): Relation between Citrus Fruits and Winter
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations, and Peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad, the faithful and the honest.
 Oh, Allah, we know nothing but what You teach us. You are the All- Knower, the Wise. Oh Allah, teach us what is good for us, and benefit us from what You taught us, and increase our knowledge. Show us the righteous things as righteous and help us to do them, and show us the bad things as bad and help us to keep away from them.
  O Allah our Lord, lead us out from the depths of darkness and illusion, unto the lights of erudition and knowledge, and from the muddy shallows of lusts unto the heavens of Your Vicinity.

Why are citruses hibernal fruits?

 Dear brothers, there are perfect wisdoms in the fruits created by Allah, and only scientists could realize these wisdom as they explored their secrets. The question to be is: Why citrus fruits come in winter only?
 The benefits of the citrus fruits and why they ripen in winter and how, were mentioned in a very accurate scientific research.
 Some scientists said: in orange you find nutritional compounds and protective vitamins, among which is vitamin C known as a resistant element against weakened structure, skin bleeding, deconstruction of calcic substance in bones, dyspepsia, lack of appetite, and infections.
 One orange per day is enough to support man with all his needs of this vitamin, and giving the infant, who is artificially fed, orange juice will make up for the lack of this vitamin.
 Dear believing brothers, this vitamin resists lot of toxic materials, so lemon has unbelievable features in the first place. If you put 10 grams of it in one liter of water, the result would be a fatal solution to all kinds of bacteria, so if we want to sterilize drinking water in any area known of polluted water, all what we have to do is to put few drops of citric juice in it, this amount is enough to kill many kinds of germs and viruses as: Cholera and typhoid, so few drops of citrus juice will kill the germs immediately.

 This fruit, created by Allah The All-Mighty, resists rheumatism and stomach diseases, in addition, it strengthens the heart and exterminates all toxic materials swallowed accidentally through food. This fruit (citrus) is created to be a cure before being a nutrient, it is a medicine in the full sense of the word.
 Dear brothers, These are Allah’s Signs in His creations, this what we think of as merely fruit is a drug store by itself; it protects, strengths, and energizes, and if man reflected upon his food, his heart would become submissive, break into tears, and prostrate himself to Allah.
