The Prophetic Medical Science
Author: Imam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah
Binding: Hard Cover
The Prophetic Medical Science – Tibbe Nabawi is a combination of religious and medical information, providing advice and guidance on the two aims of medicine, the preservation and the restoration of health, in careful conformity with the teachings of Islam as enshrined in the Qur’an and hadith. Written in the fourteenth century by the renowned theologian Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya as part of his work Zad al-Ma’ad.
This book is a mine of information on the customs and sayings of the Prophet, as well as on herbal and medical practices current at the time of the author. In bringing together these two aspects, Ibn Qayyim has produced a concise summary of how the Prophet’s (PBUH) guidance and teaching can be followed, as well as how health, sickness and cures were viewed by Muslims in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. This Book attempts to provide some insight (though the Hadith) into how the medicine was treated during the Life and time of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). As it emphasizes patterns of natural treatment rather than an analysis of medicine.
