Habib Umar ibn Hafiz




Medical ethics April 2011

Praise be to Allah (the Exalted) who cures and gives wellbeing

Allah (the Exalted) wrote excellence in everything even in sacrificing

The doctors have been entrusted to health physical body

Care must be shown to the lord of the body and spirit

The Prophet (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) would supplicate when he would awake –returning the soul to the body

The bodies' purpose is to remember Allah (the Exalted)

We a limited comprehension in praise Allah (the Exalted)

Yet he is unrestricted

So how can you praise him something restricted?

This was his generosity to use these limited phrases

Allah (the Exalted) is praised as he praised himself

Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) said no one knows Allah except Allah (the Exalted)

We ask Allah (the Exalted) for his love

Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) teaches us one of the values of medience

The one who heals and causes illnesses one

Let us please the One

We seek to be cured from the One

In whatever means we use to cure us

He was ill once and refused to see him as he said the doctor made me sick

If this view is in the heart then there is a door for the doctor

Abu Dhar (may Allah be pleased with him) was sick

They asked him about his pain

He wanted paradise not be treated by the doctor

He desired something eternal after the instruction of Muhammad

(The smoke alarm went off) it only recognises smoke but not smoke that heals

The Prophet (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) advised us to use the means

Doctor should be interested in advancements

Also examine alternative medicine

And prophetic medicine

The Egyptian king sent a doctor to the Prophet (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) who sent it back he said we do not eat until full as the stomach is the home of illness

This is the cause illness

How much control you have with your stomach is how much you control your world

His counsil should not be about the money

There was a doctor who would move his hand and realise the illness because he could not see anymore

He should go at people at distance and those who disturb him at times of sleep

Many non-Muslim doctors have out done the Muslim doctors because the Muslim has more confidence in non-Muslims more than Muslims

This is a loss

Sometimes one treats for free

May Allah (the Exalted) aid the doctors in this gathering

So they unite the good of this life and the afterlife

They should take the opportunity to connect them to Allah (the Exalted)

Doctor must guard his confidentially and protect his patients

Doctor must turn to Allah (the Exalted) at times which aids him

Salahuddin sent a doctor to Richard the loin heart

There is bodily illness and spiritual illness

Qatada ibn Numan (may Allah be pleased with him) had his eye pop out

Who asked to heal him or be patient

He said paradise is a beautiful but with two eyes

So the Prophet (may Allah bestow peace and blessing upon him) placed his blessed salvia and the put the eye back in and it healed

And it was never troubled by illness

Dua

Fatihah is a healing let us recite it
