Should modern medical treatment be avoided in favour of the Prophetic Medicine? (Sh Fawzaan)

 

Q:

There are some people who advise with using the Prophetic Medicine and they warn against some modern day medical treatments, and we have seen that some patients have come to harm as a result of this warning, so what would you advise concerning this?

A:

The Prophetic Medicine which is authentically established is true and it is beneficial, and it should not stop you from using permissible medical drugs. It does not stop you from this. You can take both. They are all from that which Allaah has made to be a healing, as he sallAllaahu’alaihiwasallam said:

“Allaah did not send down a disease except that he sent down a cure for it – whether you are aware of it or not.”[1]

And he sallAllaahu’alaihiwasallam said:

“Take medical treatments and do not seek treatment in that which is haraam (impermissible).”[2]

So that medical treatment which is established and beneficial, then there is no problem in using it, along with using the Prophetic Medicine. They are both beneficial.

Sharh-us-Sunnah – Differing in Matters of Fiqh and Blind Following

Sh-S 01 differing and following the evidence

From Sh Fawzaan’s explanation of Sharh-us-Sunnah by Imaam al-Barbahaaree:

Quote:

…as for it being said that ‘we will gather together upon what we agree about and as for what we disagree about then we’ll just pardon each other’.  This is something impossible if it refers to differing in `aqeedah.  However if it is differing in the matter of fiqhand matters of questions of fiqh which are possible can be this way or that way, then that may be allowable, even though even there what is still obligatory is following the evidence even in matters of fiqh.  He the Most High said:

 فَإِن تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ

So if you differ about anything then refer it back to Allaah and to the Messenger
