Abstract

This study revolves around investigating prophetic sayings related to preventive medication in components of food and drink. It therefore, explores the scientific facts of those Hadiths. As such, the researcher defined the preventive medication, hence, studied these Hadiths then chaptered them according to their scientific implications. The researcher therefore investigated; matters driven from those Hadiths with special reference to the preventive medication. Each Hadith was then followed up accordingly with preventive scientific matters. This is then proven by contemporary scientists’ affirmations, coupled with what is empirically proven, considered its compliance with SharÊ’ah. This descriptive study revealed that the Prophet (Øal Allah-u-‘alaihe wa sallam) was so concerned about every aspect of human life including that of health. This was yielded from hadiths that infused preventive knowledge, which if humans could have made proper use of, they would have been prevented from many illnesses and healed from others. This preventive scientific finding is affirmed by the modern science. Finally, the researcher recommended Muslim medical doctors to further explore knowledge of prophetic medication. Partly, because there are many illnesses and medications that Prophet (Øal Allah-u-‘alaihe wa sallam) prescribed to, which were yet to be discovered in modern scientific discipline.
