First of all, it should be stressed that a Muslim MUST believe that no one can cause harm or benefit without Allah’s Will. Allah (SWT) is the Ultimate Healer of all illnesses. A Muslim must seek medical treatment, because Prophet Mohammad(SAW) said: “You should seek medical treatment, because Allah, the Exalted, has let no disease exist without providing for its cure, except for one ailment, namely, old age’.” (Reported by Ahmad). All forms of medical treatment are only the means to achieve a cure. In addition, you should, also, seek the prevention and cure from the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
FROM THE QUR’AN
Use of honey from the Qur’an: “And the Lord inspired the bee, saying: Take your habitations in the mountains and in the trees and in what they erect. Then, eat of all fruits and follow the ways of your Lord made easy (for you)’. There comes forth from their bellies a drink of varying colors wherein is healing for men. Verily in this is indeed a sign for people who think.”Quran 16:68-69
PROCEDURE Mix ½ or ¼ teaspoon of honey in warm water and drink it every morning on an empty stomach.
FROM THE SUNNAH
-Use of Black seed (Nigella Sativa seed, Kalonji in Urdu, curekot in Bosnian, Habbat al Barakah in Arabic). Narrated Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him): I heard Allah’s Apostle saying: “There is healing in Black Cumin for all diseases except death.” (Sahih Bukhari 7:71:592)
PROCEDURE Grind black seeds into a powder form and swallow ½ or ¼ teaspoon with water daily on an empty stomach
RUQYA Recite surah Al Fatiha, Al-Falaq & An-Naas and blow on the patient from head to toe and if you’re ill, blow in your palms and then wipe all over your body from head to toe.
In conclusion, I request you to please make a permanent habit to use both honey and black seeds every day as a preventive measure and use Ruqya when sick. Also, please follow the guidelines of the World Health Organization on their website regarding Coronavirus.
