Pearls of Wisdom: No.49

“Food for the Soul”




 Allah, The Most Exalted, says:

“And We reveal of the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy for Believers( Qur’an 17: 82)



The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said:

“There is no disease that Allah has sent down except that He also has sent down its treatment.”  (Hadith –Bukhari ) 


Note: The Quran is not only guidance for humanity but Allah has also made it a spiritual cure and healing for all types of ailments. This includes treatment of all worldly problems, physical and psychological ailments, and spiritual. The Creator has clearly told us that the words of the Quran are a “shifa” (healing) for all and, therefore, when used with real belief in one’s heart, this form of treatment can bring miraculous cu re to all forms of ailments


Islam does not discourage the use of treatments available to us through medical and other sciences. On the contrary, the use of such treatments is encouraged by the teachings of the Noble Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him) who sought the treatment of illnesses and diseases for himself and urged his followers to do the same.
