Spiritual healing and Islamic remedies

Being a parent is hard.

Being a good parent is even harder…

Being parent of a “healthy child” is not always easy.

Being parent of a disabled or sick child is not easy at all.

When your “healthy” little one is struggling with a running nose, does your heart not ache?

Just imagine how it feels for a parent when the disease, the condition or disability is overwhelming, when there seem to be no way out…

At this point, the heart is not simply aching but the heart is breaking helplessly.

Allah Wa Ta Ala informed us that he would test us through our children and he did it with me. However, instead of constantly moaning, I like to focus on the idea that behind any hardship, there is a Khayr, and behind any illness, there is a cure!

When we are looking for a cure for our children, we tend to run to our GP or to quickly grab some “modern” medication (which is good Alhamdulillah, I am not saying that we shouldn’t)

However, our minds are going so much all over the place that we often forget about The Holy Quran which is a Shifaa (a cure) in itself. We are also prone to neglect the natural remedies and practices taught by the Best of Men, our Prophet, Mohammad, Alayhi Salam.

As instructed by our dear Prophet Alayhi Salam, make sure that your family holds firm to the Quran:

_Recite it and meditate

_Play it at home and turn off the Blasting TV

_Do your Adhkaar

_ Seek Allah’s protection for your children with the Dua that can be found in Fortress of the Muslim*

_ Perform Ruqyah on yourself if necessary

Working on your relationship with your Creator, nurturing Imaan in your children and experimenting the sweetness of Imaan will inshAllah reflect on your family’s health and well-being. And this is first a reminder  for myself.

Now, below is a list of the Islamic remedies that I am using for my daughter:

Senna Leaves To treat my daughter ‘s bowel movements/constipation issues. Generally in an infusion. Not to be taken regularly as it is quite strong
Black Seed oil As many Autistic children, my daughter’s immune system is quite weak. A spoon every day in her Orange juice or mixed with some honey. Black Seed oil is known for many other benefits, just google it!
Miswak My daughter hates the vigorous feel of the toothbrush. So I always try to be quick. But too quick means risk of caries. So on top of it, I am using the Miswak which she finds quite amusing because of its form.
Olive oil
“The Prophet (Alayhi Salam) said: “Eat the oil and use it on your hair and skin, for it comes from a blessed tree.” (Reported by al-Tirmidhi)

For more info about the benefits of these remedies, please go to Google.com!

Also, this is a very tiny list, there are many other remedies mashAllah! Islamic medicine is so fascinating! Just go for it!

    • Assalam aleikoum
      MashAllah, with the Miswak , my daughter’s dental hygiene has definitely improved
      I think one of the most astonishing results are linked with her daily consumption of the Black seed oil. My daughter used to have a running nose all throughout the winter. But Alhamdullah not anymore. Her speech and alertness have dramatically improved too.
      As I mentioned, I don’t often the Senna leaves to help my daughter with her digestion issues as it is quite strong. So instead for breakfast, I give her hot water with good quality honey in it and it works as a cleanser and laxative for her Alhamdulillah!

  1. May I simply say what a relief to discover someone who genuinely
    understands what they’re discussing online. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make
    it important. More people should read this and understand
    this side of the story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular since you definitely have the

    • This is one of the nicest comments I have ever read. I am really touched by it.
      I don’t really care about the numbers as long as I know that this might benefit a few.
      Popularity doesn’t always mean that you are upon the Truth or that you’re gifted (Ie see the Sun Newspaper).
      Although I won’t say that I am the Best or upon the Truth. I am just trying to share my own experience as sincerely as possible

  2. Salam aleykum sister.

    I pray you and your daughter are well 🙂

    I, too, am the mother of a severely autistic little boy. My heart breaks constantly.

    I found your article very comforting and helpful, and will be trying the honey for his extreme and ongoing constipation as he seems to be allergic to senna. He is also allergic to all fruit and most vegetables, so I pray he is okay with the honey.

    May our children be healed and have the best in this world and also the hereafter, ameen.

    Salam aleykum X.

    • Wa aleykum assalam

      JazakAllah Khayran for your comment. Honey is a strong allergen too so I would recommend you to test it on his hand just to see if it doesn’t provoke an allergy reaction.
      Inshallah I hope it goes well.
