Benefits and Usage
In the Sunan of Abu Dawud it is narrated that Abdullaah bin Umar said that tthe Prophet sallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam was bought some cheese while in the area of Tabuk and that he asked for a knife, mentioned Allaah's name and then cut it. Also, the companions used to eat cheese in Iraq and Sham (Greater Syria) areas.
Unsalted cheese is good for the staomach, easy on the body organs, prodices flesh and relaxes the stomach.
Salted cheese, on the other hand is less nutritious and is bad for the stomach and the intestines.
Old and grilled cheese heats the stomach and is beneficial in cases of ulcers and diarrhea.
Cheese is cold and wet and is better when it is grilled because the fire makes it milder, softer and better tasting and scented. The old salted cheese is hot and dry and boiling also makes it softer and less sour because the fire extracts the hot residue from the cheese.
Salted cheese makes the body weak and causes stones in the liver and prostate. It is also bad for the stomach mixing it with what people think will make it milder is even worse because these substances allow the cheese an easy access to the stomach.
