Medicine Of The Prophet - Revealed Knowledge

Religious and prophetic medicines heal certain illnesses that even the minds of great physicians cannot grasp, and which their science, experiments and analogical deductions cannot reach.

Such are medicines of the heart and soul, which promote the strength of the heart and its reliance upon God; its complete trust in Him, and taking refuge with Him; dejectedness and submission in His presence; humility towards Him; almsgiving and supplication; repentance and seeking forgiveness; beneficience towards humankind; and giving succour to the troubled and relief to the distressed.
All humanity has tested these remedies, and despite their differences of creed and religion, they have found them to have a great influence in healing such as cannot be attained by the medicine of the most learned of physicians, nor by their experiments or deductions.
Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya
