Cures to diseases (medicine) have been divinely revealed. Islamic medicine is holistic, it incorporates the mind, body and soul. Whereas allopathic medicine holds that there are some diseases where a cure has not been discovered yet (such as cancer, aids, schizophrenia), the position of Islamic medicine is that all diseases have a cure.
The Prophet (PBUH) said “There is a remedy for every disease and when the remedy is applied to the disease, it is cured with the permission of Allah, The Exalted”. Recorded by Muslim.
At the foundation of Islamic Medicine is the belief that if the heart is good, the body will be good. The heart becomes good by trusting in Allah and his messenger. Therefore, when a person becomes ill, they
should seek relief from the teachings of the Quran or the life of Prophet Muhammad (if not directly then indirectly).
“Say: It (The Quran) is a healing for those who believe a Guide and a Healing…” [Surah Fussilat: 44]
“Whoever performs Hijama cupping in the 17th, 19th and 21st day (of the Islamic Lunar month), then it is a cure for every disease”. [Saheeh Sunan ibn Maajah #3861].
