The principles applied in the conduct of medicine are also valid for any science deemed useful for the individual and the community. It is in these sources that the principles reigning over each stage of human life are located. Two types of illnesses follow this course: spiritual and physical. This first kind usually triggers the physical illnesses and its remedy resides in believing in Allah and His Messenger, and maintaining a life in line with His principles.
The intake of medication is not related to this specific problem, for the relief of the souls is only possible through sincerely remembering Allah.
This type of sensitivity is crucial in a religion that is going to remain valid until the Day of Judgment. The basic structure of Islamic medicine operates through healthy man and healthy society.
One of the primary goals, in this sense, is attaining a society of healthy people both physically and spiritually. Moreover, it is pivotal to avoid any kind of risk that threatens human health.
That is why our practices in medicine have to be considered in light of the permissible and prohibited elementspertaining to our diet and behavior. While Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace, searched for and underwent treatment in case of an illness, he recommended the same thing to those seeking advice and pointed to general methods of treatment. This key principle is also applicable in the field of medicine.
Despite all precautionary measures, we may inevitably confront an illness that necessitates us to seek remedies. A strong knowledge base and firm principles lie at the heart of the medicine of the Prophet.
Like in other fields, a firm stance has been adopted against superstition and erroneous beliefs. The authentic narrations on the subject of medicine are always such that they can perpetually constitute key themes for research.
Some hadith that were formerly difficult to grasp have been elucidated in later centuries together with the advancement of the sciences. Therefore, it is more reasonable to leave hadith whose meaning we cannot quite comprehend to time, instead of approaching it with doubt or refuting it altogether.
How would it be possible to know that a hadith, presently unclear, cannot be interpreted more accurately in the future? It is through such reflections that competent scholars of various disciplines have to turn to the study of the medicine of the Prophet.
In addition to such general recommendations as not entering and abandoning a place of epidemic, keeping our body, food and environment clean, avoiding waste and maintaining a healthy diet, the Prophetic traditions include issues such as consulting the most qualified doctors in cases of illness, steering clear of unqualified professionals and striving in the way of overcoming the illness. Recalling the mention of there being no illness without a cure, the Prophetic traditions seem to encourage medical research.
Researching methods of treatment are also encouraged. In addition to the Prophetic Traditions mentioning methods of treatment, there are also those prohibiting a treatment that entails haram the religiously forbidden. Among the former, that is the mentioned means of treatment, are taking medication, donating blood and bandaging the wound. Many natural sources, such as plants, are indicated as means of treatment.
Yet, in spite of all of the measures taken, the patient may not recover. Therefore, it is accepted that there is a link between medicine and fate which is extremely crucial for the spiritual ease and contentment of a believer.
The major factor for the development of the science of medicine in Islamic communities is the health policies of the Prophet. One encounters many a scholar named as physicians. The field of the history of Islamic medicine can thus pose one of the most expansive areas of research.
Since the beginning, Prophetic Traditions on medicine have drawn the attention of many scholars including the hadith experts who, in turn, attempted to collect and categorize the related traditions. Among the authors of the six well-known hadith collections, known as al-Kutub al-Sitta, there are those which have devoted a separate book or chapter to tibb al-nabawi medicine of the Prophet.
Abu Dawud also prepared a Kitab-al-Tibb. Ibn Maja also mentioned medical subjects in his book. Although they did not assign separate books or chapters, writers like Imam Muslim and al-Nasai mentioned Prophetic Traditions on the subject of medicine in different contexts. Due to their general characteristics, narrations about medicine are again scattered in the musnads, which are among the works of the first era. It can be observed that the subject of medicine was not neglected in the hadith collections of the following periods either.
Finally, in a collection of later periods, Kanz al-Ummal, the author combines Prophetic Traditions in separate sections discussing Kitab-al-Tibb. Aside from forming substantial chapters of voluminous books of hadith, there are separate books of medicine generally named tibb al-nabawi and they are encountered in the early periods.
