3 types of remedies

رَبَّنَا إِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ مَا نُخْفِي وَمَا نُعْلِنُ وَمَا يَخْفَى عَلَى اللّهِ مِن شَيْءٍ فَي الأَرْضِ وَلاَ فِي السَّمَاء

Prophet used three types of remedies for various ailments: natural, divine and a combination of both natural and divine

Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam prescribed and used the natural medicines, and then the divine remedies and lastly those composed of the two types.

Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam was sent as a guide and a caller to Allah and to His Paradise. He acquainted the people with Allah. He informed them of what pleases their LORD and commanded thaw to implement these actions, and informed them of what angers Allah and ordered them to avoid these actions. Ha told them stories of the Prophets and Messengers and what occurred between then and their nations. He acquainted the people with the creation of the world, its beginning, resurrection and how and the reasons why souls will either acquire misery or happiness.

As for the remedies of the bodies, this is a part of the Prophet’s Law that completes it and makes it whole. Remedies of the body should be used when needed. Other than that, it is better to spend the time and energy curing the ills of the heart and soul, preserving their health, and preventing any harm that may touch them. This is the ultimate goal that the Prophet’s mission seeks to achieve. It is a fact that curing the ills of the body without curing the heart does not work or benefit anyone. However, curing the heart while the body is ill does not cause extensive harm since soon after, this harm will be removed and will be replaced with the ultimate, eternal benefit. All success comes from Allah.
