Iyad Hilal Publishes “Plagues & Prophetic Medicines”

Originally posted at AMNewswire


During the global COVID-19 pandemic, many have become hyper-aware of their hygienic practices, as well as the habits that can be picked up to prevent the spread of bacteria and other contaminants. There is a plethora of information in the Prophetic tradition of Islam regarding plagues and medicine, and the book “Plagues & Prophetic Medicines” by Iyad Hilal is a perfect read during the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the Islamic understandings around the plague include the hadith of the Prophet (PBUH) who said, “Whoever dies from a plague is a martyr”, and “Whoever remains in a plague-written land patiently and hopeful of reward, knowing that only what Allah decrees will reach him, will get the reward of a martyr.”

This book explores the value of conventional medicine, the current public health practices, and in detail the practices of the Prophet and his advice to warding off the harm that comes with plagues and disease. Iyad Hilal is also known for his writings in Usul ul-Fiqh.
