It is a medical science of the last Prophet Muhammad ﷺ of Allah Ta'ala in English. Medical knowledge was also provided from Allah Ta'ala to him ﷺ.
This book is in three parts, part-1 is regarding uses of herbs, fruits, vegetables, plants, grains, Ruqyah, evil eye, black magic & some habits of Nabi ﷺ & part-2 is about diseases & their treatment which are mentioned in Hadees & part-3 is a work book you need to answer questions.
I started to write this book Part-1 & Part-2 from 4th October 2013 & completed the book Part-1 & Part-2 in 15th March 2016.
In the book, in Nabi ﷺ guidance section, in the Hadees English transalatio, the Arabic words given in bracket are the words mentioned in respected Hadees. (Please do not get confused).
Tibb-e-nabawi ﷺ is mostly based on recitation of Ruqyah (islamic spiritual treatment for evil eye, black magic etc.) & uses of herbs, fruits, vegetables, natural food products, eating habits, Salah, Dua, Quranic verses, Allah Ta'ala's names, drinking habits, ethics & diseases & their treatment.
1. All diseases are curable. (Bukhari: 5678; Book. 76)
2. Belief in Allah Ta'ala.
3. Follow Prophet ﷺ's way & guidance.
4. Use herbs, fruits, vegetables, special Dua, Ruqyah, Quranic verses, Names of Allah Ta'ala.
This is based on collection & study of Prophet ﷺ's teachings, guidance & Hadees (means saying, teachings, talks & etc of Prophet ﷺ.)
Famous & authentic books of Hadees like : Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmizi, Abu Dawud, Abu Nu-aim, Ibn Ma-jah, Musnad Ahmed, Musnad Firdous, Tibraani, Kanz-al Ummal, Biahaqi, Mustadrak Al-Hakim, Tibbenabawi (Al Jawzi), Shaobul Imaan, Musannaf Abdur Razzaq, Shamaa'il Muhammadiyah & etc.
My work is mostly based on famous books of Hadees as mentioned above & Tibb-a-Nabawi ﷺ by Imam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jauziyah, Islamic medicine by Yusuf Al-Hajj Ahmad, Tibb-e-Nabawi ﷺ & Jadid science by Dr. Khalid Ganznawi, Plants of Quran by Dr. M. Iqtedaar Farooqi, Book of sunnah by E.M.H. Salejee & etc.
On 2nd May 2015 at 12:00 pm I met with Mr. Rafiq Dudhwala founder of Deeniyat, at Idara-e-Deeniyat, opp. Maharashtra college, Bellasis road, Mumbai Central, Mumbai- 400008. (I went to Mr. Rafiq Dudhwala with reference of Mr. Altaf Bhai Gulshan printing press) regarding my book, he saw the presentation properly & pointed out my mistakes, like I had not mentioned the Hadees numbers, means I had only mentioned the names of the books from which the references are taken. He also asked to recheck the Hadees from the original textbook of Hadees, the Saheeh Sittah means the 6 authentic books of Hadees & also other books. I realized that it was very important to recheck the Hadees & etc. And further said that your work should be checked by the best Aalims who has done postgraduation & Ph.D. & is well versed in Hadees work.
I again started reading, confirming, & putting the references of the Hadees on 6-5-2015, from the respected books of Hadees like Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud, An-Nasa'i, Ibn Ma-jah, Tabraani, Musnad Ahmed, Musnad Firdous & etc & we also used software (المكتبة الشاملة) Al-Maktaba Al-Shamilah to find the references & completed the search on 30-09-2015.
Maulana Arhsad Jamal Nadwi (An Aalim) & Maulana Abdul Matin (An Aalim) also took the task of searching, checking, putting teh reference of the respected Hadees. The designing work was done by Maulana Arshad Jamal Nadwi (An Aalim) well verse in this work (He is like my son).
Tibb-e-Nabawi ﷺ was & is presently neglected by all class of people. Since many years no proper compilation work was done in English in India, that could give a proper basic knowledge of Prophet ﷺ's science, with proper order, with Prophet ﷺ's Hadees seperately, & experiences & comments of scholars seperately. (Means mentioned in seperate columns).
Scholars experience should not be neglected but at the same time should be mentioned under seperate heading & should not be mixed with Prophet ﷺ's guidance & Hadees, so that the readers do not get puzzled & should get a clear idea what is mentioned by Prophet ﷺ & what are scholars experiences.
Tibb-e-Nabawi ﷺ (Prophet ﷺ's medical science) is currently not present in our practical life, means we do not follow it due to ignorance, lack of awareness & lack of knowledge, (since many years for unknown reasons).
Today our eating habits do not match with Prophet ﷺ's eating habits nor medical science knows about it; we do not know about the favourite dishes of Prophet ﷺ, nor do we follow the medical science of Prophet ﷺ.
The respected Medical science of Prophet ﷺ is sent by Allah Ta'ala to his Prophet Muhammad ﷺ for the benefit of whole world, but we neglect it and ignore it.
In 2015, I was 44 years old, I used to read Tibb-e-nabawi ﷺ (Books on medical science of Nabi ﷺ) since 20 years of age, I used to get puzzled & did not had a clear idea what was Prophet ﷺ's guidance & teachings, & what were scholar's guidance & teachings.
So this made me to do a compilation work on Tibb-e-nabawi ﷺ (Prophet ﷺ's medical science) to bring awareness about it & remove the negligence.
Actually, my work is like a postman's work, means my job is to deliver the message of Prophet ﷺ's medical science to people in easy language & better understanding with clear and authentic references.
My work is only a compilation work, in systematic order and proper manner. May, Allah Ta'ala guide me in the best way in my work & duty, to do it in such a way that it is easy for the whole world & beneficial to all.
All the authors of the books like Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud & etc had done a beautiful piece of work by setting the Hadees in different chapter, with proper topics, grouping & etc. By their work only our work is possible. How much difficulty they must have suffered, Allah only knows & may Allah reward them all handsomely.
First of all I would like to thank Allah Ta'ala for letting me to do this work, may Allah Ta'ala make it a success (Aameen) than thanks to Nabi ﷺ from the bottom of my heart for hs devotion & hardships & grants. I would like to thank all Sahabah for their hardships & work for Islam, than all the people after them.
Also thanks to the author of Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud, Ibn Ma-jah, An-Nasa'i, Tirmizi & etc for their work in the field of Hadees, by their work only it makes us easy to work on Hadees.
Also thanks to Mufti Dr. Javed Ali, Mufti Shoaib, Mufti Ajmal, Maulana Saad, Maulana Arshad Jamil, Maulana Abdul Matin, Abdul Aziz, Altaf bhai, Rafiq Dudhwala, Taha, Abdul Matin, my parents, my family and all my friends & well wishers & my wife for helping me in my writing work. Withour all above it would be impossible to wirte this book. Also special thanks to Mrs. Shujauddin Qureshi for her help in prove reading & Hadees checking work.

There are many books compiled by him, it took a period of 16 years to gather the Hadees and to write the Sahih Bukhari, which sets the date back to 217 A.H. in which he started the compilation; Imam Al-Bukhari (r.a.) being merely 23 years of age. Before he actually placed a Hadees in his compilation he performed ghusl (bath) and prayed two Rak'ah nafl and did Dua asking Allah for guidance. He finalized each Hadees in the rawdah of Masjid An-Nabawi ﷺ (between the Prophet ﷺ's grave and his mimbar) and wrote the Hadees in the Masjid. Only after being completely satisfied with a Hadees he uses to place it in his collection.
