Imaam Al-Shaafi’ee on the Importance of Learning Medicine

villi-intestineImaam al-Dhahabi wrote in Al-Tibb al-Nabawi (Dar Ihyaa al-Uloom, Beirut, pp. 228-229):
Chapter: Regarding the Encouragement of Teaching medicine
His (alayhis salaatu was-salaam’s) saying, “Allaah did not send down a disease except that it has a cure” has already preceded. We say: This (hadeeth) necessitates the mobilization the people’s [lofty] concerns [for medicine] and incitement of (their) determinations to learn medicine. And it has already preceded that medicine is a skill. Imaam al-Shaafi’ee said, “I don’t know of a knowledge more noble than medicine after the halaal and haraam.” And he used to be concerned (and grieved) over what the Muslims had neglected of medicine, and he would say, “They have neglected one third of knowledge and have entrusted it to the Jews and Christians.” And he used to say, “Indeed the Ahl al-Kitaab have dominated us with respect to medicine.” And al-Shaafi’ee, alongside his greatness in the knowledge of the Sharee’ah, and his great skill in Arabic was also insightful in medicine. The writer (i.e. al-Dhahabi) says: And I have seen our Shaykh, Shaykh Ibraaheem al-Raqiyy to be insightful in medicine, and likewise our Shaykh, Shaykh Taqi al-Din Ibn Taymiyyah, and Shaykh Imaad al-Din al-Waasitee (rahimahullaau ta’aalaa) [were insightful in medicine]. Hippocrates and others have said, “Medicine is inspired by Allaah,” and Hippocrates is the chief of this discipline. His school of thought regarding it is the sound, correct school of thought. He was followed therein by Galen who is the leading scholar of this discipline as well, and both of them are venerated a great deal by the physicians. Read the rest of this entry »


Glance of Love

Ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The pious offspring who casts a single look of affection at his parents receives a reward from Allah equal to the reward of an accepted Hajj.” The people enquired: “O Prophet of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), if someone casts a hundred such glances of love and affection at his parents, what then?” The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Yes, indeed, even if one does so a hundred times a day, he will get a hundred fold reward. Allah is far greater than you imagine and is completely free from petty narrow mindedness.” [Sahih Muslim] Read the rest of this entry »

A Brief History of Islam


The Rightly guided Caliphs

Upon the death of the Prophet, Abu Bakr, the friend of the Prophet and the first adult male to embrace Islam, became caliph. Abu Bakr ruled for two years to be succeeded by ‘Umar who was caliph for a decade and during whose rule Islam spread extensively east and west conquering the Persian empire, Syria and Egypt.

He established many of the basic practices of Islamic government.

பூ ஒன்று புயலாகிறது

இத்தனை ஸ்பீடான இந்தி புரியவில்லை. ஆனால் ஆயிரம் ஸ்ம்ருதிகள் ஒன்றாக வந்தாலும் நிற்க முடியாது என்பது மொழி தெரியாமலே விளங்குகிறது.
ஃபேஸ்புக்கில் ஒடியனும் தி இந்துவில் ஆதி வள்ளியப்பனும் அறிமுகம் செய்ததில் இருந்து…
சக மாணவ, மாணவிகளால் ‘காம்ரேட்’ என்று அழைக்கப்படுகிறார் ஷெஹ்லா ரஷித் ஷோரா.
ஷெஹ்லா என்றால் கஷ்மீரி மொழியில் மலர் என்று அர்த்தம். ஆனால், பேச்சில் தீப்பொறி பறக்கிறது.
“ஜே.என்.யு.வில் கிடைத்த அனுபவங்களும் அரசியல் பயிற்சியும் அற்புதமானது. இந்த நாட்டில் எளிதில் பாதிக்கப்படக் கூடிய கடைக்கோடி மனிதனுக்காகவும் நான் குரல் கொடுக்க வேண்டும் என்பதை அதுதான் கற்றுக்கொடுத்தது” என்கிறார் ஷெஹ்லா. Read the rest of this entry »

Three Muslim skeletons back to 7th century found in France orientated towards Makkah

mm111Nimes City, France : The religion of Islam in the Middle East started 1,400 years ago as a small religious community but within a hundred years it had spread across a vast empire, Mail Online reported.
Now the remains of three people discovered in medieval graves date back to the 8th century have provided new clues as to just how far Islam spread in its early days.
Archaeologists have used genetic testing on three skeletons found in Nimes in the south of France to reveal they belonged to Muslims from North Africa.
Each of the bodies had been buried in a way that appeared to follow Islamic rites, with their bodies and heads orientated towards Makkah.
The DNA revealed their father’s families had come from North Africa, which as the time would have been part of the huge Umayyad Islamic empire that emerged by that time. Read the rest of this entry »
