Muslims turn to the Quran and hadith for guidance in all areas of life, including health and medical matters. As collected in the ahadith, the Prophet Muhammad SAW once said that "Allah SWT did not create a disease for which he did not also create a cure." This has led to the development of what is known today as Islamic Medicine, which includes prescriptions regarding health from the Prophet SAW himself but more often, cures derived by world renowned Muslim physicians that have approached the science of medicine from a holistic perspective based on earlier guiding Islamic principles.
Since it’s inception, Islam has prioritized a holistic approach to health. The protection of faith, property, life, progeny and mind are core principals in Islam, the latter three of which cannot be adequately observed without the diligent protection and preservation of health.
