The Sunnah’s Cure For Diseases

It was narrated from ‘Abdullah that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said: “Allah does not send down any disease, but He also sends down the cure for it.”

Sunan Ibn Maajah, Book 31, Hadith 3438

Islam, being a complete way of life, does have solutions for every problem. This includes the dilemma of illnesses and diseases. 

The following is taken from the words of Shaykh Assim Al-Hakeem (here) as he speaks about the cure for cancer found in the Sunnah and a personal experience he had with regards to it. I modified some of the words to make it easier to read.

Cancer is an illness. Allah did not create an illness without creating a cure for it, as the Prophet ﷺ told us: “Those who know it will know it, and those who don’t know it will not know it.” And we know that the plague, which is an epidemic, is the evil eye and the stabbing of our bretherin from the Jinn. So there is nothing to prevent cancer from being an affliction of evil eye, which is most likely, the result of a trauma, or anything like this.

How is it to be treated? There is a physical and spiritual aspect. The spiritual part is Ruqyah (e.g. Suratul Fatihah, Ayatul Kursi, AlMu’awidhaat, cupping, 7 ajwa dates in the morning, black seeds, zamzam water, etc.)

For the physical aspect, I know for certain that cancer can be cured, by the grace of Allah, with the mixing of camel’s milk with camel urine, as mentioned in a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari. When a group of the tribe of Uraniyyeen accepted Islam and gave the pledge of allegiance. All of a sudden, they fell ill. So the Prophet ﷺ told them to leave Madinah, go to a herd of camels, and drink from its milk. In a few days they were cured, but they left Islam, killed the shepherd of the camels, stole the camel herds, and ran away. The point is the instruction of the Prophet ﷺ (camel milk).

Now my personal experience is that 20 years ago, I had a friend who was five years older than me and used to teach chemistry. I happened to see him a few years back after a gap of 10-12 years. He’s originally Palestinian and when I saw him, he looked different. His beard was white and he was wearing the Saudi Iqaal. So I greeted him and asked him what’s happened to him. He said “Well, I got intestinal cancer. The doctors operated on me and cut a big portion of it.and I took some medication, but they told me it’s too late. You’re dead”

I asked him “So, what did you do?”

He said “I heard of a professor in the college of pharmacology. She had a lot of research on the benefit of camel urine mixed with camel milk and the cure that it serves as when used in certain percentages. So I got in contact with her and she told me that you mix a bottle cap of camel urine with a liter or a liter and a half of camel milk and you drink it.”

And he continues “I tried that for five months. I started taking it fresh from the camel. After five months, I went back to the doctor and did the tests. The doctor was shocked. They asked me what I had done. They told me there was not a trace of any cancerous cell in my body. I told them what I had done; they said it was impossible.”

So I asked him how long ago this was and he replied that it was about 2 ½  to 3 years ago. I asked him, “And it never came back?” He said “Look at me. (I’m fine). And I’m still consuming it every single day.”

So I believe that if you have cancer and you’re pretty much dead, why not try the medication of the Messenger ﷺ. You might as well try it and Insha’ Allah you will be cured.

One can find a cure for disease in ruqyah, hijaamah (cupping), camel milk and camel urine, zamzam water, Dua, ajwa dates, black seed, and other remedies found within the Sunnah.

This video does a far better job of explaining how to use the Qur’an as a cure than I ever could:

May Allah cure all of our brothers and sisters with illnesses. Ameen.

dua for cancer post

Whenever Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) paid a visit to a patient, or a patient was brought to him, he used to invoke Allah, saying, “Take away the disease, O the Lord of the people! Cure him as You are the One Who cures. There is no cure but Yours, a cure that leaves no disease.”
