A friend of mine asked me the following question and quite frankly I didn't have an answer as I myself had similar questions in my mind to begin with. I've sent it to Mufti Ebrahim Desai [DB]; inshAllah if he responds I will post it here for all. The question is as follows:
In a Hadith of our Master [SallAllahu alayhi wa Sallam] we find:
"hold onto the use of the black seeds for in it is healing for all diseases except death" (Sahih Bukhari)
Why then is there a need for modern medicine? Why do many scholars in our times seek modern medical treatment rather than the Prophetic medicine.
Jazak Allah khayr
