This article traces the history of the Khat which is an intoxicant and also a sexual depressant. The author establishes that its origion is Abyssinia and it is brought to Arabia where it is commonly used even by Muslims. If Khat is consumed in excess it may impair the health but moderate quantity is beneficial.
