Came across an interesting article in DAWN,
A doctor who prescribes a dose of Quranic verses
A wonderful marriage of the physical sciences with spiritual healing. No compromise made to the medical treatment. Spiritual healing not used as a substitute to professional medical treatment and yet in perfect harmony with modern healthcare, Surah Al-Rahman from the Holy Quran brings healing and health to patients.
Also, the doctor talks about the need for young doctors to educate themselves about the composition of poisonous pills. The need for a helpline & monitoring cell for toxicology to be available to all
“During the treatment of Abbas, Surah Al-Rehman was continuously played by his bedside and this worked as a wonder antidote,” he said.
Interestingly, Dr Javed is neither a cleric nor a faith-healer. He has a distinguished record as a medical practitioner as his visiting card shows — MBBS, FCPS (Pakistan), FCCS (USA) and FDM (USA). Currently, he is the head of the Services Hospital’s ICU and a consultant physician and intensivist.
From Surah AN-NISA (Women) of HOLY QURAN (English Translation – Pickthal),
Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.
How should ye not fight for the cause of Allah and of the feeble among men and of the women and the children who are crying: Our Lord! Bring us forth from out this town of which the people are oppressors! Oh, give us from thy presence some protecting friend! Oh, give us from Thy presence some defender!
