Can Prophetic Practices Really Transform Your Health & Wellbeing?

You might have heard of Chinese Medicine. You might have heard of Ayurveda and Homeopathy. And, if you're Muslim, you might have heard that the Prophet ﷺ was a healer and dealt with health and wellbeing. However, if you're like most people, you might be hopeful but also a little skeptical about whether or not this actually works...

Before we get into the truth of the matter, and the Prophetic practices than can transform your health, first take a moment to reflect on this question...

Have you ever struggled with any of the following?

  • Low energy / feeling run-down
  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Catching colds, sore throats, etc.
  • Stomach and digestive problems
  • Depression / low mood
  • Constipation
  • Addictions / cravings
  • Insomnia
  • High sugar levels 
  • Anxiety 
  • Overweight (despite you trying to lose weight, nothing's working)
  • Less than ideal skin 
  • Major or minor body pains

If you've experienced any of these, this might be the most important letter you read all year.

" My name is Hussein, and this is my story..."

Before we talk about the wisdom, knowledge and practices that can transform your health, wellbeing and vitality, take a moment to read this revealing story.

" When you think of tired, worn-out, and stressed, you normally think of someone middle-aged to elderly. I was just 18, barely an adult, and facing these problems. Some of the things I was struggling with were: low energy, social anxiety, low moods, insomnia, junk-food addictions, sugar cravings, stomach aches and constipation.

The thing is, I didn't realise how much of this was actually being caused by my own unhealthy lifestyle and lack of knowledge about taking care of my health and wellbeing. I just used to take these problems as 'part of life' and just 'lived with them' without thinking much about why or how these things were happening.

However, my suffering was getting worse and worse, and it was having some major consequences. I was struggling with my studies, became disconnected from my family, felt miserable and empty, and became physically and mentally unwell.

" I was lost, so I became a seeker... "

Having nowhere else to turn in my constant suffering, I tried to become more connected with my faith and spirituality. I started learning how the Prophet ﷺ came to uplift humanity, as a living example of how to be in this world.

I began to see how Islamic teachings could help me in my personal life, and started to have a hope that this might hold wisdoms and secrets that could heal my deep problems. It started off as a spiritual quest, and the main thing I wanted to explore was how this wisdom and knowledge could help my mental and emotional health and wellbeing.

As fate would have it, my family and I moved halfway around the world, to a completely different continent when one of my cousins told me about Hakim Salim's College in Leicester, UK, which is my hometown! So I checked out their website and saw that they had a course coming up within the next few months.

Since this was the first opportunity I had ever come across to learn about health and wellbeing from an Islamic perspective, I had to attend. So I made the commitment, and my cousin (the one I mentioned) also decided to join.

" I started reading the course materials and became overwhelmed with gratitude. Then, I met him... "

My cousin and I flew to the UK and arrived in Leicester not long before the beginning of the course. When I received the course materials, I was uplifted just by reading the first few sections. The clarity and depth of wisdom started to dawn on me!

But that wasn't even the most impressive thing about this whole experience. On the first day of class, we met Hakim Salim, and I have to say that I have never had a more compassionate, spiritually connected and deeply grounded teacher. Not only that, but his level of knowledge and skills in this field was very awe-inspiring.

This was seriously an experience that I had not anticipated. I had no idea that I was getting into such a profound and rich treasury of knowledge, wisdom and resources. I genuinely had never imagined that anything like this even existed.

" Then suddenly, things started to get very serious... "

We learned a lot during the course and it was such a great and unique experience. But then, I had my first wholistic health consultation with Hakim Salim, which is when things got a lot more serious.

I still remember his exact words after discussing some of the problems I was going through. After Hakim Salim asked me a few questions and took some notes, he assessed me using iridology and pulse analysis. Then, he looked directly at me and said, "your health is very poor, especially for your age". I was taken aback, because while I knew I had some difficulties, I didn't think it was that bad.

Anyway, it took me a few moments to come to terms with this reality. Then, Hakim Salim explained to me very clearly that I had two choices:

  • I could carry on the same old way (as a victim of the popular and unhealthy 'modern lifestyle') and watch my depletion, anxiety, addictions and unhappiness getting worse and worse.
  • Or, I could turn away from this unhealthy lifestyle, and instead, replace it with a more balanced, Prophetically guided and inspired way of living, supported by natural medicines and supplements that he prescribed specfically for me.

" The biggest transformation of my life... "

After learning what I did on the course, and following the programme that Hakim Salim gave me during the consultation, I went through the biggest transformation of my life.

Over time, it reversed my addictions, cravings, unhappiness, burnout, low moods and anxiety by working on the deepest levels of my body, mind and spirit. Through this journey, I had many experiences of self-discovery and personal growth.

I can say that my life changed dramatically. My food, sleep and energy problems were hugely improved. I felt much more at peace with myself. My parents and family started noticing a more independent, alive, happier and confident person. 

Since this journey started in 2012, my life is on a path that is much better than the one I used to be on. I am proud to be physically healthy, emotionally well, mentally fit and able, as a spiritual seeker, contributing every day in my work and family."
