As-Suyuti's Medicine of the Prophet

As-Suyuti's Medicine of the Prophet [Tibb an-Nabbi]

Written nearly five hundred years ago and now translated into easily
readable English, this unique work gives a fascinating insight into the
ancient, but still applicable, art of Prophetic medicine and an
understanding of what constitutes and causes disease and healing. The
author gives a detailed description of both physical and spiritual
diseases and their remedies, drawing from both the Quran and from the
wisdom of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.

AS-SUYUTI was born in 848AH/1445CE in Upper Egypt. He became a scholar
of the Muslim sciences and wrote many books on a variety of subjects, of
which Tibb an-Nabbi was one of the most popular. It is clear from his
writings that his knowledge of medicine was not merely academic, but
based on sound practice and experience. It is equally clear from his
work that the art of medicine and the gift of healing are not merely the
result of experimentation, but a divinely revealed science whose
results are ultimately and essentially the outcome of the mercy and
decree of Allah: And when I am sick, He heals me. (Quran 26:80)
