Good book, but I'm worried about the word "Muhammadan", as it has been used by crusaders with minimal understanding of Islam, much like the word "Moslem"

Ws, I understand your concern. “Muhammadi” is a term sometimes used in the Islamic context (such as Salman al-Muhammadi), and for the title, I considered “al-Shifa’ al-Muhammadi” to be like a synonym to the standard “Tib al-Nabawi”.

سلام brother @Qa'im

Could you tell us what methodology you used to select narrations for this book? Did you select only narrations with acceptable isnad, or did you include weak isnad, too? 

Thank you!

The Prophet would eat barley bread; but there are also indications that barley was eaten out of poverty rather than preference. As for rice, bulgur is preferred. White rice is more processed, and usually not as healthy as brown.

Alright. I just ordered some bulgur from Amazon. going to try to make a Harrisa dish. Any recipes that would resemble the type of Harrisa that the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) would eat?

I find the following narration very interesting! 

وقال صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم : كل الباذنجان واكثر فانها شجرة رأيتها في الجنة . فمن اكلها على انها داء كانت داءاً ، ومن اكلها على انها دواء كانت دواءاً .  

The Prophet ﷺ said, “Eat eggplant often, for it is a plant that I saw in Paradise. So, one who eats it thinking that it is a malady, then it is a malady; and one who eats it thinking that it is a remedy, then it is a remedy.

This narration implies that our thinking/opinion about some food, changes the effect of the food on us. In other words, the food itself isn't objectively good or bad. It's our thought of it that makes it good or bad for us. 

What this may mean is that our thoughts either change the state of a food or they change the state of our body, which takes in the food. If we're mentally worried about a food, then that would physically change the ingestion and digestion aspects of the food, or the very nature of the food.

I also find the usage of "so" very interesting. The malleability of the food seems to be associated with its presence in paradise.

Hmm.. interestingly I know someone who loves eggplant but is severely allergic to them. I also know another sis who absolutely loves and craves honey but is unable to keep it in her body for more than a few seconds and throws up severely. She is particularly interested in eating it because of its healing properties and being among the sunnahs but cannot.

Thoughts?

If she is eating it on a piece of bread or by a spoon, it might be her gagging reflex to the thickness of the honey. Has she stirred the honey in  tea or water?

I'm humbled to announce my new book, a product of the COVID-19 quarantine: "The Muhammadan Cure: The Modern Science of Prophetic Medicine". All praise is due to Allah.

"The Muhammadan Cure" compares the medicinal and dietary advice of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ to contemporary medical findings. It provides a detailed ethical, symbolic, and scientific commentary to dozens of hadiths that pertain to dietary regimen. The book contains over 130 citations to medical journals and scientific articles. 

"The Muhammadan Cure" includes traditional and natural remedies for conditions such as heart disease, cancer, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, Alzheimer's, depression, leprosy, kidney disease, tooth decay, osteoporosis, gout, constipation, labour-related complications, infantile colic, erectile dysfunction, and much more. 

Please note that this work is not meant to replace your doctor or your dietician.

Ṭib al-Nabī (“Medicine of the Prophet”) is a vast genre of literature. This book reviews only a small sample of this genre, but the results are eye-opening. Much of the ancient prescriptions given are consistent with the conclusions of controlled studies being published in medical journals today. This should be no surprise to any Muslim, as the Prophet ﷺ received his message from God Almighty.

My hope is that this work will inspire readers to do further research into this topic. Food-related illnesses and conditions are rampant in the worldwide Muslim community, and our Prophet ﷺ found it important enough to speak on this topic in great detail. A healthy regimen, after all, is a daily commitment, like prayer.

The book is available now for only $9.99. You can find it here:

I've always hoped that one day, I would be inspired and driven enough to be able to write a book. The problem is, I'm not knowledgeable enough on any one topic to be able to do so. I have a little knowledge about a lot of different little topics rather than one that I am a master in.

Brother you haves tremendous humility to say that but you are severely under estimating yourself

Bismillahi Irrahman Irrahiim

Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuh,

 

Allah grant your blessings generously to sheikh Bilah Muhammed. 

Commander of the faithfull, Ali Ibn Abi Talib (عليه السلام) has said: "The sciences are in three groups: Science of the religions decrees, science of the medical cure and the science of the clear speech." 

https://balaghah.net/old/nahj-htm/eng/id/article/imam-ali/0004.htm

 

In faith I give my prayers and farewell,

May Peace and blessing of Allahs graciousness be showered upon you in this life as well as in the hereafter. 

Allahumma sallialaa Muhammed wa Aali Muhammed Wa azjel farajzahum

O Creator of us who created what is in the heavens and what is in the earth and everything in between only for the sake and love for the Prophet Muhammed - The Chosen One, Ali - The one who is pleased To Allahs verdict, Fatima - The orginator, the collector and divider of the Thy light, Hasan and Husein whos names are from thy grace of goodness and ethical. 

Send your blessing to Holy Household and accept our prayers and deeds, - forgive our mistakes, and bypass calamities that are heading towards us due to our ungratefulness and make us grateful of your graciousness when you have shown us the sign that you have saved us from the accident and what you have set for the one to be trialed and in times it do reach us and then reach with the remembrance of your Sovereignty and that in the day of judgement there will be no relief and the trials and the tribulations will be not lighten or posted nor removed away only else to those you have granted repentance in the graciousness of thy mercy. You are the all Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Grant us the light that widens our vision in darkness with knowledge of halal and haram and what benefits in this world and the hereafter and guide our soul to be in serenity of thy ever presence and satisfied to condition of our state that would be in a way that our own desires would not lead us astray to self glorify or forget the bounties you have set tied in the decrees not exceed to and to protect the those who believe. Grant us the intercession of the Imam of our time, and make us accounted among to those who are waiting and hoping of the reappearance of twelfth Imam.

 

In faith I leave you in the protection of the All-Mighty.

لَا إِكْرَاهَ فِي الدِّينِ ۖ قَدْ تَبَيَّنَ الرُّشْدُ مِنَ الْغَيِّ ۚ فَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِالطَّاغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِنْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدِ اسْتَمْسَكَ بِالْعُرْوَةِ الْوُثْقَىٰ لَا انْفِصَامَ لَهَا ۗ وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ
Surat Al-Baqara : 256
 
سورة البقرة : ٢٥٦
There is no compulsion in religion: rectitude has become distinct from error. So one who disavows fake deities and has faith in Allah has held fast to the firmest handle for which there is no breaking; and Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing.

 

اللَّهُ وَلِيُّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا يُخْرِجُهُمْ مِنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ ۖ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَوْلِيَاؤُهُمُ الطَّاغُوتُ يُخْرِجُونَهُمْ مِنَ النُّورِ إِلَى الظُّلُمَاتِ ۗ أُولَٰئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ ۖ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ
Surat Al-Baqara : 257
 
سورة البقرة : ٢٥٧
Allah is the wali of the faithful: He brings them out of darkness into light. As for the faithless, their awliya are the fake deities, who drive them out of light into darkness. They shall be the inmates of the Fire, and they will remain in it [forever].
 
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ ۖ فَإِنْ تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلًا
Surat An-Nisaa : 59
 
سورة النساء : ٥٩
O you who have faith! Obey Allah and obey the Apostle and those vested with authority among you. And if you dispute concerning anything, refer it to Allah and the Apostle, if you have faith in Allah and the Last Day. That is better and more favourable in outcome.
 
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِنْ رَسُولٍ إِلَّا لِيُطَاعَ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ۚ وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذْ ظَلَمُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ جَاءُوكَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُوا اللَّهَ وَاسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ الرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُوا اللَّهَ تَوَّابًا رَحِيمًا
Surat An-Nisaa : 64
 
سورة النساء : ٦٤
We did not send any apostle but to be obeyed by Allah’s leave. Had they, when they wronged themselves, come to you and pleaded to Allah for forgiveness, and the Apostle had pleaded for them [to Allah]for forgiveness, they would have surely found Allah all-clement, all-merciful.
 
إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ الْإِسْلَامُ ۗ وَمَا اخْتَلَفَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ إِلَّا مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَهُمُ الْعِلْمُ بَغْيًا بَيْنَهُمْ ۗ وَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِآيَاتِ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ
Surat Aal-i-Imraan : 19
 
سورة آل عمران : ١٩
Indeed, with Allah religion is Islam, and those who were given the Book did not differ except after knowledge had come to them, out of envy among themselves. And whoever denies Allah’s signs [should know that] Allah is swift at reckoning.
