In the above Hadees Nabi ﷺ took his saliva on the forefinger then he put it on the soil & wipe on the wound place, this above Hadees shows the Prophet ’s miracle, which is evidence of healing by using soil & saliva.
Research on antimicrobial activity of certain bacteria & fungi isolated from soil mixed with human saliva against pathogenic microbes causing dermatological diseases by Huda Mohammed Ahmed Shaikh at Open Access funded by King Saud University.
Soil samples (collected from Al-Madina Al-Monawara, Kingdom Saudi Arabia) were mixed with human saliva, incubated in media suitable for bacterial & fungal growth & filtered. Eighteen bacterial & five fungal species were isolated & identified. The bacterial & fungal filtrates as well as the isolated species were evaluated for their antimicrobial activities against some pathogenic microbes causing dermatological diseases (Staphylococcus aureus, methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA) & Aspergillus Niger). The bacterial filtrate showed significant antagonistic effect against S. aureus & methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA), whereas showed non inhibitory action on the pathogenic fungus. In contrast, the fungal filtrate antagonized the growth of the pathogenic fungus (A. Niger) & did not produce any inhibitory effect on the two tested pathogenic bacteria. The isolated bacterial species showed different levels of antagonistic activities against the three tested microbes. Bacillus subtilis was described as potent isolate against the three pathogens, followed by Esherichia-coli. However, Bacillus megaterium strongly inhibited the growth of the pathogenic bacteria only. On the other side, all the fungal filtrates of the isolated species, except Cochliobolus lanatus showed antagonistic activity against the pathogenic fungus (A. Niger). The filtrate of Fusarium oxysporum & Emericella nidulans counteracted the growth of S. aureus, whereas, the growth of MRSA was inhibited only by the filtrate of E. nidulans. From the passage of our respected Prophet ﷺ if any person complains from a wound or ulcer, the messenger of Allah ﷺ put His Forefinger on the ground & lift it then recited: (In the Name of Allah, soil of our land, with the saliva of some of us, our sick person will get well after the permission of our Lord).
