Book Name: Islamic Medicine – The key to a better life
Author: Yusuf Al-Hajj Ahmad
Translators and editors: Nasiruddin al-Khattab and Huda Khattab.
We live in a time where we are surrounded by diseases and sicknesses of all kinds. With these diseases must come a treatment. Allah (SWT) would not create a sickness and then not give us a cure. After all, He is the most Merciful and Just. Now think about what you turn to when you get sick. Do you turn to cough drops or honey? Do you turn to pills or do you turn to kalonji (black seeds)? Imagine that the one Who created you, also created a remedy for every single illness He put into existence. Wouldn’t you go to Him to get the cure? If the creator of a car says that you have to put gas in it for it to run, would you not listen to them over a person who says to put water in your car? In this day in age, we are sadly disconnected from nature and Islamic medicine that we could be using to prevent diseases and illnesses.
Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Allah did not send down any disease but that he also sent its cure.” (Sunan Ibn Mājah 3438)
Nowadays, “what is a key to a better life?” has become a popular question. Many doctors and scientists have presented lectures, presentations and literature all stating that we should try to eat more naturally and go holistic, but the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said these things over 1400 years ago and I believe it truly unjust of any Muslim to believe anyone over the Prophet’s (SAW) Allah given wisdom and guidance. This incredible book explains different natural remedies with the support of the Qur’an and Sahih Sunnah. You will find that these remedies work and are still used in many parts of the world successfully.
In this book, you will discover the amazing uses behind some of the most common household ingredients such as honey and olive oil. Have you ever wondered why it is said to sit when drinking water? Well, this book can answer that question through the Qu’ran, Hadith, as well as scientific evidences. This book can takes common Ahadith that you probably already know, and gives you the evidences and reasoning behind them. For example, below you will find an excerpt from this book about the wisdom of sleeping on the right side.
“As for sleeping on the left side, it is not acceptable either, because in that case the heart is put under pressure from the right lung, which is larger than the left and this affects its function and reduces its activity. A full stomach also puts pressure on it, so the pressure increases on the heart and the liver which is the heaviest organ and which is not fixed in place, rather it is suspended by ligaments and it is located on the right side, so it puts pressure on both the heart and the stomach… Experiments have proved that passage of the food from the stomach to the intestines occurs within a period that is between 2.5 and 4.5 hours if the sleeper is lying on the his right side, but it takes as long as 5 to 8 hours if he is lying on his left side.”
In this excerpt, you can see how just the action of laying on your left side can have a negative effect on your body. As you can see, this book is extremely informative and very well organized. Each page is loaded with facts and information that will stun you. This book includes images as well to help relate points and make it a beautiful addition to any library. The author has put many ideas into perspective and opened a door to a whole different understanding to Islamic medicine.
If you enjoy learning about health and medicine, this book is a must have. The book gives a very clear understanding and is written in a very easy to understand manner. I would highly recommend reading this book as it will open your mind to many concepts of Islamic medicine and show you how Allah SWT is the Ultimate Healer and Protector of His creation, Alhamdulillah.
So, get your copy today and use this “Key” to open the door to a “Better Life”, Insha’Allah.
