Science & Hadees regarding Figs

Nabi صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم said regarding figs that, “If I had to mention a fruit that descended from paradise I would say this is it because the paradisiacal fruits do not have pit, eat from these fruits for they prevent hemorrhoids, prevent 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 cancer. Fiber also lowers cholesterol and the risk of heart disease.
Just one fig provides 20% of the USRDA of fiber. A Harvard University study of 43,757 men ages 40 to 75 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 added just 10 grams of fiber a day to their diet (6 figs) lowered their incidence of heart disease by 30%.
