    Salam Brothers n Sisters.

    I was reading this beautiful book today 'Medicine of the Prophet' so i thought why shouldn't i share it with all community of DT. :)

    "Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet" is the panacea for those in search of good health. It is a magnificent work that is a treasure in every Muslim household. Although it was written by the author, Ibn Al-Qayyim, over six hundred and fifty years ago, it is extremely timely work for our generation in which health and natural health care products have become an important aspect of the lives of so many.

    The author presents the guidance of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in dealing with a variety of health issues, including treatment of ailment and preventive remedies to keep the body fit. As the Qur'an and Sunnah are the main sources of Islamic lifestyle, it only stands to reason that they should likewise be referred to in the matters of health and fitness.
    This is the approach taken by Ibn Al-Qayyim as he presents verses of the Qur'an and statements of the Prophet (pbuh) as his main reference in these issues are of health and medicines. The final chapters of this work include an extremely beneficial glossary of remedies, herbs, foods and other natural substances that aid in the journey towards better health.

    "Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet" is an invaluable reference guide for the Muslim of every land and every generation. May Allah bestow His mercy and blessings upon the author, Ibn Al-Qayyim, for surely his work will be cherished throughout time.

    Part I. Kinds of diseases
    Kinds of diseases​

    There are two types of diseases that attack the heart, one doubt and error, and the second lust and desire, both are mentioned in the Quran. Allah says about the disease of doubt:

    "Fi qooloobihim maradun fazadahu mullaho maradaa"

    "In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allah has increased their disease." (2:10)

    And He said:

    "... and that those in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy) and the disbelievers may say: 'What Allah intends by this (curious) example?'" (2:10)

    Allah says concerning those who refuse to make the Quran and Sunnah the basis of their judgments:

    "And when they are called to Allah (o.e., His Words, the Quran) and His Messenger (P.B.U.H) to judge between them, lo! a party of them refuses (to come) and turns away. But if the truth is on their side, they come to him willingly with submission. Is there a disease in their hearts? Or do they doubt or fear lest Allah and His Messenger (P.B.U.H) should wrong them in judgement. Nay, it is they themselves who are Zalimun (polytheists, hypocrites and wrongdoers)." (24:48-50)

    This is the disease of doubt and error.

    Also, Allah says about desire and lust, adultery in this case:

    O wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other women. If you keep your duty (to Allah), then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery) should be moved with desire..." (33:32)

    Part II (using Natural Medicines) .. I also wanna share something from part II.

    The Prophet's guidance on treating headaches and migraines

    Headaches resemble a pain that appears in some part if the head or all of it, but when the headache attracks one side of the head, it is called migraine. The type that attacks the entire head is sometimes called a helmet, for it resembles the hamlet that covers the head. Furthermore, headaches sometimes attack only the back or the front side of the head.

    There are mant types if headaches that result from various conditions. Headaches usually start when the head becomes hot due to the pressure of a septic vapor that accumulates near the head and which seeks a way out of the bódy but fails. Then, the pressure of the vapor intensifies, just as a pot when it is heated but the stream is not able to escape from it. It is a fact that when moisture heats up, it seeks more space to expand. Similarly, the vapor accumlates near the head and then causes a headache in the entire head because it is unable to expand or escape from the body as it heats up. This condition cases a type of dizziness.

    There are various specific causes for headaches. First, when one of the four essential conditions (coldness, hotness, dryness and wetness) becomes predominant. Second, ulcers of the stomach cause headaches, because the cephalic (relating to the head) nerves and the stomach are connected. Third, thick flatulence might accumulate in the stomach then later ascend to the head and cause hedaches, Fourth, headaches are sometimes caused by a tumor in the gastric veins that cause pain in the head, because the stomach and the head are connected. Fifth, when the stomach is full of food it somtimes provokes headaches, as some of the time food remains undigested. Sixth, headaches sometimes occur after sexual intercourse because the body will then be weakened and thus exposed to the heat of the air. Seventh, headaches sometimes occur after vomiting due to excessive dryness, or to accumulating gaseous materuals (flatulence) that ascend to the head from the stomach. Eight, sometimes the hot weather and air provoke headaches. Ninth, headaches are sometimes caused by the cold weather and form the vapor that accumulates in the head and which is unable to decompose. Tenth, not having enough sleep also causes headaches. Headaches are sometimes caused due to the pressure exerted on the head, such as when one carries a heavy object on his head. Twelfth, excessive talking sometimes weakens the mind in a way that causes headaches. Thirteenth, excessive movements and sports activity can also provoke headaches. Fourteenth, sadness, depression, obsession and evil thoughts also provoke headaches. Fifteenth, excessive hunger provokes headaches, as in this case; the excess gaseous materials (flatulence that accumulate in the stomach ascend to the brain and provoke headaches. Sixteenth, those who suffer from a tumor in the cerebral lining somtimes feel as if hammers are constantly pounding on their heads. Seventeenth, fever also provokes headaches because of the intense heat that the body suffers from them. Allah knows best.

    Headaches result from changes in the system that affects the cerebral arteries

    The weaker side of the brain will accept septic material and the migraine headache will be accompanied by pulsation in the arteries. The pain could be relieved in this case when one ties a bandage so that the pulsing of the arteries is stopped and thus the pain is lessened.

    Abu Na'im said in his book on Prophetic medicine that the migraine type of headache used to attack the Prophet (P.B.U.H) and that it would prevent hum from going out of his house for one or two days at a time. Also, Abu Na'im related from Ibn 'Abbas (RA) that he said, "Once, the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) delivered a speech while a cloth was tied around his head."

    Also, the Sahih states that the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said during the illness that preceded his death: "O my head!" He used to tie a piece of cloth around his head.

    Tying a piece of cloth around the head helps soothe the pain of headaches and migraines.

    Treating headaches varies according to their types and causes

    Hence, headaches could be relieved by vomitting, eating, being calm, and idle, using cold rags, cooling body, elevating the temperature, avoiding noise, etc.

    Knowing these facts, we should mention that treating headaches with Henna is partial and that it treats some types of headaches. If the headache is caused by high fever and not spoiled substance that requires extraction, Henna helps soothe the headache somewhat. Crushed Henna blended with vinegar and applied to the forehead will relieve the headache. Henna also soothes the nerves when used as a bandage. Finally Henna is not only favorable to relieve headaches, but also for the various organs of the body and for the hot tumors and inflammations when used as a bandage.

    Henna is cold in the first degree and dry in the second degree

    The Henna tree has two special qualities, decomposing due to its warm watery essence, and constipating due to the cold earthly essence it contains.

    Henna is useful in treating burns and soothes the nerves when used as a bandage, as we have stated. When chewed, Henna helps treat the cankers and thrush that appear in the mouth. Hina also heals stomatitis (inflammation of the mucous membranes of the mouth) that appear in the child's mouth. Using the Henna to bandage hot tumors also helps, as it has a similar effect on open sores as the dragon's blood tree has on them. When the Henna flower is blended with pure wax and rose oil, it will help against the aches of the side (Thatul janb).

    When the symptoms of smallpox start to break out on children and Henna is then applied on the bottom of their feet, the eyes will be immune from the sores that accompany smallpox. Also, when the flower of the Henna is placed between wool clothes, it will perfume it and will prevent mold and mite. Furthermore, when the leaves of the Henna are submerged in fresh water, then squeezed and drunk for forty days, twenty measures each day along with ten measures of sugar while eating the meat of a young ewe, it prevents leprosy with its amazing qualities.

    We were told that a man once complained from fissuring in his fingers and that he offered monetary rewards to whoever could cure him, but to no avail. Later on, a woman prescribed for him a drink of Henna for ten days but he could not stand the idea of drinking it. Later on, he soaked Henna leaves in water and rank the water and his fingers were healed and regained the beauty.

    Henna is also used as an ointment for the fingers, as it polishes and strengthens them. Henna aslo useful when blended with butter and then used as a bandage for the hot tumors that drain yellow residue. Henna also benefits against chronic mange, helps the hair grow, makes it stronger and also strenghtens the head. Finally, Henna helps against the blisters and pustules that appear on the legs and feet and the rest of the body general.
