A Handbook of Spiritual Medicine
About this deal
Making this science accessible to a new generation is of utmost importance especially in times of a spiritual vacuum. The ‘Handbook of Spiritual Medicine’ is to be commended as a clear presentation of the science of internal purification in a format which enables easy access to symptoms of spiritual illnesses and their cures. This is all the more important as many maladies that plague the modern world in essence emanate from the spiritual maladies within our own collective 'selves' and communities. The author has put in a lot of hard work to ensure that the reader can reflect and ponder over his shortcomings, which is a continuing duty upon a Muslim. This work will enable the reader to self-analyse and assist him or herself in meeting their Creator with a 'sound heart'.

A Handbook of Spiritual Medicine: Daud, Ibn: 9781838049201
This spiritual guide to the self is a handbook of tazkiyah or ‘self-purification’. Not only does it illustrate the maladies of the human spiritual condition, it recognises the struggles and insecurities we all succumb to from time to time, and offers up the remedies too. The antidotes to our ailments are drawn from Qur’anic verses and authenticate ahadith (Prophetic sayings), inspiring mindfulness of the Almighty Cherisher (SWT) and His Beloved Prophet (PBUH). This guidebook, drawing on the 11th and 12th Century works of the ‘Proof of Islam’ and the wondrous sage, Imam Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali can be applied to our busy lives in the modern, hi-tech era, and will prove accessible to people of all ages, all denominations: believers and non-believers alike. If we go by this method, the book also requires you to be self-aware to a certain extent. By being self-aware and reflective of ourselves, we are then consciously allowing ourselves to grow and learn. This ultimately leads to us becoming the best version of ourselves in sha Allah.There are some very relevant issues mentioned and I'm certain that those who will read the work with a view to correcting their inner souls will be benefited immensely from the work. Our duty is to protect الله سبحانه وتعالى at all costs. We also understand that all people are susceptible to mistakes. This book contains 2 errors in its translation. The errors have been highlighted to the publishers and they're in the process of rectifying.

After spending some time with this book, I was surprised that a similar format isn’t being more widely adopted as there is a clear gap in the market for a handbook on treating spiritual diseases. Often we get overwhelmed with feelings that bring out the worst in us and we are unable to move forward and as such, we fall into a downward spiral. We may feel envious of someone but may not know how to treat it from an Islamic perspective. The book offers practical solutions to common problems, problems that if unresolved, could lead to life-long damage to your spiritual health, this dunya and most importantly, your akhirah. Accordingly, to understand the full or intended meaning of the word or the verse, Muhsin Khan’s translation has also been included in this edition. However, to comprehend more of the meaning of the Quran, reading the commentary of the Qur'an from trusted scholars would be necessary.
Join us for an author evening with Ibn Daud to discuss his book, A Handbook of Spiritual Medicine. This event will be hosted by Talha Ahsan. My most favourite element of the handbook was the sections highlighting the exceptions of each illness. ‘Exceptions’ display symptoms that are not representative to the spiritual illness but are in fact Islamically valid. The idea of the book is to use it as a means of self-purification – the principles of the book are underpinned by the Qur’an and authentic Hadith. We pray that Allāh ﷻ accepts this work as a fresh exposition of an ancient science and rectifies the Muslim community and the wider community by novel presentations such as the method adopted by this work.
