Abstract

Plants and fruits are an essential component of the universe. Human beings have used those as medicine from the very beginning of time. There are many plants with medicinal applications that have been mentioned in the holy book of Muslims, the Quran. The objective of this research is the identification of medicinal plants enumerated in the Quran and exploring their traditional uses and phytotherapeutical benefits. At least 52 plant species have been identified in Qu'ranic Botanical Garden Qatar. In the present work, we have chosen three species native to the Qatar flora and also cited in the Holy Quran and Hadith. A search for any documentation or publication of their traditional uses and therapeutically benefits was carried out using the scientific literature and internet websites for well referenced publications. Results were systematically arranged by alphabetic order of botanical names followed by English name, Arabic name, family, parts used and medicinal uses.
