Abstract:   (573 Views)
Background & objectives: Among the many valuable treasures of the Islamic tradition, many hadiths refer to aspects of human health, disease and treatment. The growth of medical science has led to greater attention to medical narratives, and some uninformed and profitable individuals have justified the treatment of diseases by citing such narratives. On the other hand, some have claimed that medical hadiths are irrelevant. This study seeks to answer these questions: Do medical narratives emphasize on treatment or prevention or are such narratives feasible? Are they citable? And if the target audience is limited to person or, like jurisprudence and on the basis of sharing in the task, can the medical traditions be generalized?
Methods: This study seeks to identify and express the hadiths that focus on the prophylactic aspect of diseases by referring to some hadith sources related to the subject and then by content analysis and description. By referring to libraries, reputable websites, CDs, microfilms, and scientific journals, the content was collected as a transcript.
Results: The findings of the present study are as follows: 1) What is emphasized in the narrations of Ahl al-Bayt is more the issue of personal and public health and hygiene, which are in line with lifestyle recommendations. 2 (Many narratives focusing on disease treatment are private and personal, and on the contrary, hadiths that emphasize on health and disease prevention are publicly available, so everyone can use them.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that referring to medical hadiths, like other hadiths issued by the infallibles, is a specialized work and one should avoid any prejudice and interpretation of the vote, and that many hadiths consider prevention to be better than cure and emphasize preventive aspects of the disease such as: avoiding overeating, recommending some certain activties that are effective on human health and not getting sick, observing nutritional principles and practices such as eating while hungry and having appetite, good chewing and munching, avoiding blowing into food, using toothpicks, etc.
