Homeopathic medicine cure.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Is Homeopath medicine legal(HALAL) in Islam? If not then why? In India, I have seen Ulema using this type of medicine. But In Arab states, there is no medical shop selling these medicines.

Answer:

 

Homeopathic medicine cure

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Umm Salamah, the wife of the Prophet (saws) reports that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "Allah has not placed a cure for your diseases in things that He has forbidden for you.''

Reported by Baihaqi, Ibn Hibban and Bukhari on the authority of Ibn Masud (r.a.)

 

Abu ad-Darda reported that the Prophet (saws) said: "Allah has sent down both the malady and its remedy. For every disease He has created a cure. So seek medical treatment, but never with something the use of which Allah has prohibited.'' Reported by Abu Daw'ud.

 

Respected sister, one is permitted to use any type of medicine in Shariah, provided the substance being used is not amongst those which are declared haraam or unlawful by Allah and His Messenger (saws).

 

Thus regardless of whether the type of medicine is homeopathic or allopathic (or any other pathy for that matter), as long as the ingredients being used to create the medicine are not amongst those which are declared haraam by Allah and His Messenger (saws), it would be deemed absolutely lawful for a believer to use them.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
