What is more effective to use, the Black Seed herb or the Black Seed Oil?
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) stated, "Use this black seed regularly, because it has a cure for every disease except death.” (Reported by Bukhari.) He did not state to use the oil regularly so this can be used as evidence that the whole herb is what he was stating when he proclaimed this.
Both are effective in their own standards. However, Black Seed oil is more concentrated than the herb itself. Many people prefer using the herb to the oil. Caution should be taken when using black seed oil due the fact that many oil products are imported and may be adulterated or mixed with other oils. Some oils coming from the Middle East are extracted with heat and hexane, a petroleum by-product. Always use a product that is labeled as 100%, cold-pressed, solvent free, and packed and sealed by machine.

What is the meaning of the statement ' a cure for everything but death' in reference to Black Seed?
From such extensive healing traits among other properties contained in this blessed seed, we can understand the meaning contained in the divine words of the Qur'anic verse: It destroys everything by the permission of its Lord (Qur'an 46:25, meaning everything, or any morphological structure that is subject to destruction--that is, annihilation of the arrogance and activities of the nonbelievers against the divine revelation, before bringing them to reckoning. Therefore, the correct religious analytical concept of 'a cure for every illness except death' has its canonical limitations, as in the Qur'anic verse relating to honey, where Allah Almighty says: in it, there is cure for people (Qur'an 16:69), and the majority of scholars agree that honey cures many people from many illnesses, but it does not cure all people from all illnesses. The same interpretation is found in the verse describing the Qur'an itself as 'a cure and mercy for the believers' (Qur'an 17:82), and also the verse concerning the people arguing against the divine revelation, because our Lord and Creator, decided this time to reveal His last message to the entire humanity in Arabic 'Say: 'It is a guidance and healing for the believers' Qur'an 41:11). In this sense, the holy Qur'an is a cure and a light for the body, soul and mind of the believers, while it is blinding, deafening, and destructive for those who reject and argue against the divine revelation.
The Black seed is another living miracle-herb whose benefits are disclosed to us through the prophetic guidance of Allah's Messenger and respecting the canonical limitations, we have thus explained in summary the benefits of using the Black Seed. And Allah knows best. (Taken from the Medicine of the Prophet by Imam Ibn Qayyum al-Jawziyya and translated by Muhammad Al-Akill)
