Specific Tips and Example of the Prophet (S.A.W)’s Medicine

Heart care

Heart is a vital organ of the body, which needs to be kept healthy and efficient, as it is responsible for the circulation of blood. Diseased heart results in deterioration of the healthy body.

This knowledge we obtained after centuries of scientific research yet it was simply told to us over fourteen hundred years ago by our Beloved Prophet (S.A.W). Our Beloved Prophet (S.A.W) constantly preached the message of good health.

The following have been prescribed for heart care:

Smelling oranges fortifies the heart.

Lemon juice strengthens the heart.

The aroma of Rihan (sweet basil) strengthens the heart.

Lisan al-Usfur (ash tree seeds) too is good for the heart. It also soothes pains in the main organs.

Eating apples also strengthens the heart, according to al-Fatahi.

Hilba (Fenugreek or Methi) is also good for the heart. The Prophet (S.A.W) said: If my community had only known what there is in fenugreek, they would have bought it and paid its weight in gold.

Eating chicken meat is beneficial for heart burns, according to Ibn al-Baytar.

Anbar (Amber, A fossilised tree resin) fortifies the heart and brain. When cooked with rose oil, it soothes heart pains. Yellow amber too has the same effect.

Marjan (Coral) has a strong effect on the heart.

Owing to the importance of this organ, the Prophet (S.A.W) gave spiritual remedies for the heart too. One man complained to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) about the hardness of his heart.

The Prophet (S.A.W) told him: ‘Stroke the head of an orphan, and give him something to eat.’ To another man who made the same complaint, the Prophet said: ‘Visit the sick, go to funerals and visit tombs.’

But the best medicine of all for the heart is the Zikr of Allah (S.W.T).
