Abstract

Popular treatment of ailments and illnesses based on the Qur’ān and the Sunna of the Prophet Muḥammad continue to be practised in the Muslim world owing to their religious inspiration. It is not uncommon to find shops dedicated to selling different types of honey because the Qur’ān specifies that “in it is healing for mankind” [1], or for customers to purchase black seed oil on the basis of the ḥadīth that “it is a cure for everything but death” [2,3]. The belief of being possessed by a , often as a result of black magic still prevails, especially for those whose ailments conventional medicine has fallen short of curing. Healers who recite the Qur’ān are often consulted to remove the jinn and annul any spells that may have been cast. In the context of the Qur’ānic and prophetic remedies that exist, taking into consideration the growing interest in complementary medicine, too has gained its fair share of attention as a credible religiously-rooted form of therapy for a wide range of diseases.
