Science & Hadees regarding Figs: -

Nabi ﷺ said regarding figs that, "If I had to mention a fruit that descended from paradise (Jannat) I would say this is it because the paradisiacal fruits do not have pit, eat from these fruits for they prevent hemorrhoids piles and help gout" (Arthritis).
Figs are a top source of fiber, as well as potassium and vitamin B6. Fiber results in bulkier stools, which lessen the incidence of constipation, hemorrhoids and colon (large intestine) cancer. Fiber also lowers cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. 
Just one fig provides 20% of the (USRDA) fiber. A Harvard University study of 43,757 men 40 to 75 were found that those who got the most fiber had about half the risk of getting a heart attack as those who got the least. Furthermore, men who add just 10 grams of fiber a day to their diet (6 figs) lowered their incidence of heart disease by 30%.

Conclusion of Hadees: -

1. Figs are from Jannah & are dry fruits of Jannah. Recite Chapter 95 (Sura) Teen In Isha Salah. It cures Piles & Arthritis.
