  • The Lost Islamic Sciences

    Salam alaikum

    I have a special and personal interest in Several Islamic science that seem to be either lost or dying. I've asked around in my community but nobody seems to know much or even anything about them.
    These are invaluable skills that every decent sized muslim community should have.

    Here is a list

    1.Ruqya- recitation of the Quran for illnesses whether they be physical illnesses or spiritual illnesses. Have only met in real life one person who could actually recite quran with the intention for ruqya

    2.Hijama- wet cupping to remove bad blood.Have met a handful of people that knew the raw,illiterate basics of hijama and one person who had intermediate knowledge but no one who was highly skilled or knowledgeable. I've been practicing this one myself for several years and am learning through trial and error. The basics can be learned in an hour but to us this for ailments like diabetes,old injuries,varicose veins and also to use in conjuction with ruqya for sihr and jinn extraction is a fine art.

    3.Prophetic medicine- the use of herbs and foods mentioned in the Quran for healing . Never met anyone in person who had even basic knowledge of the uses of Qust al hind,honey,black seed,senna,etc. but have heard of someone in Toronto that has knowledge,of what level I do not know.

    4.Dream interpretation- this seems to almost completely lost. Never met anyone who even has met anyone,even overseas.


    I could easily find a 200 engineers,150 IT specialist 120 doctors without any effort but could fit all of the people I;ve met in the four above sciences in a car

    Any thoughts comments and suggestions on this topic are welcome

    Wa'alaikumsalam wr wb.

    Not in my region though.
    For no.1 and 2 can be find quite a lot.
    for number 3, if using raw materials to do them , its a bit hard to find, but the commercial products containing these ingredients can be found quite easily here.
    4. very very rare.

    I agree we need more , if one thing I can say is that the knowledge for these topics for islamic lectures must be more. Like awareness etc. for these imo, number 2 and number 4 is lacking. 1 and 3 is still ok. (we do have islamic lectures here for those matters) for ruqyah, there are islamic lectures regarding jinn etc, then they inserted the topic on ruqyah. With regards to prophetic medicine, is on the topic of health.
    Allah Subḥānahu wa-taʿālā has mentioned in the Quran in chapter Surah Al-Ahzab:21 There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.

        Finding Black seed oil is one thing but someone who KNOWS how to use black seed oil is another.

          changing mentalities is another aspect of it. I cut my finger down to the bone a couple weeks ago.

          a "modern" muslims would have went to the emergency room for stitches,I applied some honey to the wound,kept a bandage on for three days.. Never had a serious cut heal so quickly as Honey is ant-septic,anti-viral,anti-bacterial and speeds heeling.

            It's not that hard to know how to use black seeds or black seed oil.
            شَكَوْتُ إلَى وَكِيعٍ سُوءَ حِفْظِي
            فَأرْشَدَنِي إلَى تَرْكِ المعَاصي
            وَأخْبَرَنِي بأَنَّ العِلْمَ نُورٌ
            ونورُ الله لا يهدى لعاصي

              We can find people who are knowledgeable in all these fields easily here especially in the somali community and in another few countries that I know. Dream interpretation i'm not sure about.
