It is reported in the al-Wasīla that the Prophet Muḥammad (pbuh)said :
"Whoever eats wild-leek before retiring to bed will be free from flatulency (thick hemorrhoidal gases)."
Ibn Qayyim al-Jauziyya in his book al Tibb al-nabawi considers this ḥadīth to be apocryphal.
It is said that Hippocrates (Buqrāt) attributed the following characteristics to leek: it is diuretic, helpful in cachexy and colics. It stops nosebleeding, but increases menstrual bleedings. It further lets the mother's milk flow. Ibn al-Qayyim says: there are two kinds of leek: the kurrāth al-nabaṭī and the kurrāth al-Shāmī. The last mentioned (Allium porrum) has bulbs. The wild-leek (kurrāth al-nabaṭī, Allium ampeloprassum) is put on the stomach pain. If it is cooked, eaten or its water is drunken, it is useful cold sores. So if the seeds of the wild-leek are mixed with tar (quṭrān), and the carious molar teeth are infumigated with this mixture, it is easier to extract them or to even to split them in parts.
The haemorrhagal pain will stop when the backside is exposed to fume of the seeds of the wild-leek. Though this, the wild leek is harmful to the teeth and gums. It causes headache, nightmares, spoils the eyesight and induces a bad odour of the breath. It causes the increase of urine flow and menstrual bleeding. Wild leek increases the sexual desire and supports digestion.
