Medical Knowledge given bv Prophet Mohammad(SAW)
I would like to start my column with the gratitude of Allah who is the Creator, the sustainer and the real Healer. He created entire world and he knows each and every thing, which is above the sky, between the sky and earth and beneath the earth. He knows what is under the bottom of seas and what is inside the mountain.
We look to the plants that stand by their roots. The beauty of plants comes by its stems, leaves, flowers. These are not useless; Allah gave healing effect on them. It is up to us how much knowledge we have about Natural things and how much we understand Allah’s power.
Herbal and Nutritional products have a very important role on our health. They nourish the body, so that the body can heal itself.
Allah created plants, animals and minerals for benefit of human being and Allah also gave healing effect through them. He gave healing effect in Honey. Allah says in Holly Qur’an in Surah An Nahl Chapter 16 Verses 68 & 69 more or less meaning is that:
And thy Lord taught the Bee to build its cells in hills, on trees, and in men’s habitations. Then to eat of all the produce (of the earth), and find with skill the spacious paths of its Lord: there issues from within their bodies a drink of (varying colors, wherein is healing for men: verily in this is a Sign for those who give thought.
At the time of Prophet Mohammad (SAW) there was no modern Medical Technology, but people of those days were healthy, because they were living their lives in a natural way, obeying the orders of Allah and following the life styles of Prophet Mohammad (SAW).
If we maintain our daily life according to Allah’s Health Rule, we will be healthy. Living our lives in a simple way will protect us from many diseases. Eat those things which Allah allows to eat, avoid those things which Allah prohibits.
