Islamic Medicine - Theories Composing Muslim Medicine, Hospitals, Ages Of Translations, Changes From The Nineteenth Century Onward

medical subsystems

Islamic medicine refers to the range of health-promoting beliefs common to and actions taken in Muslim societies, whether by Muslims or others. As with other traditional medical systems, Muslim medicine was composed of several subsystems, each involving a unique etiology and practice and each enjoying a different legitimacy. These subsystems were not independent of each other and none enjoyed complete hegemony. In the Muslim context this means that humoralism, folklore, and prophetic medicines were all present in the medical therapeutic scene.

Dear Sir,
I am happy to inform you that 9th revised Edition of Plants of Quran and 4th Edition of Medicinal Plants in the Traditions of Prophet Muhammad (Prophetic Medicine) have been published. Both the Editions (authored by me) have been revised and contain colour Photographs of Quranic and Prophetic Plants. This has been done according to the wishes of several Scientists and Scholars around the World. You must be aware that the Plants of Quran and Sunnah have assumed added importance in view of the UNESCO Project of QURANIC BOTANICAL GARDENS in several areas of Islamic world in general and Arab World in particular. Actions for the establishment of such Gardens in Sharjah and Qatar have already been taken. Recently authorities of Royal Botanic Garden at Kew (UK) have also opened Quranic Garden Section in it’s prestigious premises.
Recently King of Morocco, H.M. Mohammed IV has very kindly observed,
“ I deeply appreciate and want you to know how impressed I am by your work on Plants of Quran and Medicinal Plants in the Traditions of Prophet Mohammad. Your keen interest both in the Quranic I’jaazz – the ultimate, unparalleled knowledge conveyed through the Holy Book – and in the lessons drawn from the Traditions of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) has enabled you to make invaluable contributions to Islamic writings” (3 June, 2010).
Late Maulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi, Founder-Member of Rabita Al Alam al Islami, also observed that the “identification of certain plants (In Plants of Quran), particularly with respect of Sidrah and Kafur, unravel several knots and removes many confusions.’ Another Islamic Scholar of repute Dr. M.A. Yamani, Chairman, Iqra International, also declares, “ the book has filled a gap (Quranic Studies) that has been yawning for centuries”

Your sincerely,

Review by Sayyid Hamid, Chancellor, Hamdard University, New Delhi. ‘Muslim Societies - Rise & Fall’, consisting of 28 chapters and spread over 208 pages, has not only delineated the Rise and Fall of Muslims ever since Islam’s emergence but it has collected, tabulated and analyzed a wealth of relevant information. One realizes all the time that the book is from a scientist’s pen. Although dealing with religion, history, society, it steers clear of sentiment and rhetoric..
The change of attitude which the Ummah needs desperately, as pointed out in the Book, does require the unambiguous and almost undivided attention of the Ulema who wield immense influence among the masses.

Qur’anic Botanical Gardens
(Approved by UNESCO)
A proposal to set up Botanical Gardens based on the scientific and aesthetic concepts contained in the Holy Quran has been approved by the Unesco Headquarters. The expert team that authored the proposal consists of Guido Licciardi, Dr. Shaukhat Ali Chaudhary and Dr. Benno Boer (UNESCO Adviser), Dr. Rashid Idriss, Dr. Mohammed Iqtedar Husain Farooqi and Grant Donald. Dr. Farooqi is the author of The Plants of the Quran, and the Medicinal Plants in the Tradition of Prophet Muhammad.
The garden features will be based on the verses (more than 150) that mention the Gardens of Paradise (Jannat al-Firdaws) in the Holy Quran. The proposed project would help achieve important objectives in the fields of environmental conservation, scientific research, education and recreation, the Unesco said.
