If you go to the Amazon link and click the see inside option, you can see the contents and the introduction.

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”.

Masha’Allah

May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless you with wisdom to continue writing books and spreading the message of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام).

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?

According to this report, eggplant is a fruit of Paradise that the Prophet may have seen during his ascension (miʿrāj). If it is paradisal, then it must in essence be good.

The narration appears to iterate the logic of placebo, as one who simply believes that the eggplant is harmful will be harmed, and one who simply believes that the eggplant is beneficial will find benefit. A common theory is that one’s expectation can cause one’s body to produce effects similar to what a medication might have caused, positive or negative.[1] The stronger the expectation, the stronger the effect. This shows the significance of one’s mindset in healing – optimism has a biomedical function. In truth, healing is a very human experience, as humans are the only beings that are known to ingest a substance with the hope, faith, and knowledge that they will recover.

Eggplants are mostly beneficial to one’s health. The fibre, potassium, vitamins, antioxidants, anthocyanins and flavonoids can reduce the risk of heart disease, decrease levels of bad cholesterol, reduce the risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, help prevent tumor growth, and help prevent age-related macular degeneration in the eyes.[2]

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:
