Myrobalan

From al-Musayyib b. Wadih, who served al-‘Askari, peace be upon him, from his father from his grandfather from Ja’far b. Muhammad from his father from al-Husayn b. ‘Ali b. Abu Talib, peace be upon him, who said: “If people knew what was in yellow rnyrobalan (al-halilaj al-asfar), they would buy it by its weight in gold.” He said to one of his companions: “Take one grain of yellow rnyrobalan and seven grains of pepper. Grind and sieve them and use as kuhl around the eyes.”
