Before people jump in with both feet and give their opinions my points are as follows:
- IF xs11ax says that he would rather give his business to a practising Muslim fair enough and I have no issues
- IF xs11ax says that he prefers to deal with practising Muslims and believes that there is Barakah in it, no issues either
We will discuss Ruyqa in stage 2
For right now, I am asking why does he need a practising Muslim brother (for Hijamah) from a “practical and medical” point of view? If he thinks that there is a “Qur’aan and Sunnah” method of Hijamah please provide reference.
Once you have understood someone’s point of view, feel free to “disagree” or “dislike” all you wish; it is your democratic right.
Prophet recommending a Non-Muslim for Medical Treatment
عَنْ سَعْدٍ، قَالَ: " مَرِضْتُ مَرَضًا أَتَانِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَعُودُنِي ، فَوَضَعَ يَدَهُ بَيْنَ ثَدْيَيَّ ، حَتَّى وَجَدْتُ بَرْدَهَا عَلَى فُؤَادِي فَقَالَ: إِنَّكَ رَجُلٌ مَفْئُودٌ، ائْتِ الْحَارِثَ بْنَ كَلَدَةَ ، أَخَا ثَقِيفٍ ، فَإِنَّهُ رَجُلٌ يَتَطَبَّبُ ، فَلْيَأْخُذْ سَبْعَ تَمَرَاتٍ مِنْ عَجْوَةِ الْمَدِينَةِ ، فَلْيَجَأْهُنَّ بِنَوَاهُنَّ ، ثُمَّ لِيَلُدَّكَ بِهِنَّ
Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqaas said: “Once I was sick and the Prophet came to visit me, so he put his hand between my nipples until I felt its coolness at my heart and he said: “You are a man suffering from heart sickness, so go to Al-Harith ibn Kalladah, brother of Thaqeef, as he is a man who gives medical treatment.” [Abu Dawud]
Missionary Objection: Was al-Harith bin Kalada the Source of the Prophet’s Medical Knowledge?
