Publishers Note: All Praises if for Allah, Lord of the universe. We praise Him, and seek his help, and his forgiveness, and we seek His protection from the accursed Satan. Whoever Allah guides will never be misguided, and whom He allows to be misguided will not be guided. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, who is One alone and has no partners. I bear witness that Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger. May the blessings of Allah be upon him and his family and his companions and the righteous who follow them until the Day of judgement. Throughout the history of mankind, man has been searching for those things which will heal his many ailments.

Allah has clearly indicated to mankind that: "Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad (SAW)) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes for Allah and the Last Days and remembers Allah much". (33:21) Prophet Muhammad was sent as a guide, and mercy for all of mankind, and as such was given wisdom by Allah that benefits man. Allah says: "O Mankind! There has come to you a good advice from your Lord, and a healing for that which is in your breasts, a guidance and mercy for the believer's." (10:57).
