QURANIC HEALING-A NEW MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY
Spirituality is commonly relied upon to cope with the stress caused by evil spiritual problems or health problems. Now the medical effects of faith are considered a matter not just of faith but also of science!
Dr. C. Callender, Chair of the Surgery Department at Howard University, Washington D.C. rightly said:
“The miracles of spiritual healing should be accepted as the newest medical technology.”
A scientific mind unclouded by preconceived notions is able to discern the validity and utility of a comprehensive approach to health, which includes spiritual healing. Professor John Taylor of King’s College, London asserted:
“A scientific investigation can only look into that which is physical. The non-physical realm–be it mental, spiritual, ethereal, eternal or any other so far–has defied scientific analysis.” John Taylor, Superminds pp. 55-56
And Spiritual Healing
Dr. Robert G. White, a renowned neurosurgeon, is one of many scientists and physicians who, through their research, came to the conclusion that
“All spiritual healers are true scientists and they have come to the conclusion that behind every creation–be it an atom, cell, or cosmos–a Creating Genius is at work. Therefore, they assert that their patients can be healed by turning to that Creating Genius through devotion, contemplation, and recollection of His Name.”

Spiritual Healing definitely offers a response to the problem of human insufficiency. Now people are realizing that real peace of mind and tranquility can not be gained without turning to Spiritual Healing. Within the past few decades it has come to the knowledge of mankind that spiritual healing and practices have an important impact on physical, mental & spiritual health!
It is estimated that more than 500 million people worldwide suffer from the ill effects of depression. A variety of anti-depressants are suggested by medical profession as a course of therapy, but instead of complete recovery, quite a number of patients suffer immensely the grave untoward and harmful effects of drugs alongwith partial or no recovery!
Hundreds of scientific studies demonstrate the medical value of Spiritual Healing including but not limited to enhanced prevention and treatment of painful disorders like arthritis, drug addiction, mental disorders like depression, schizophrenia, suicidal tendencies and anxiety disorders, medical illness like heart diseases, stroke, cancer, sexually transmitted diseases. In addition, spiritual treatment along with medical therapy enhances the pace of recovery and results in prolonged survival.
Important Medical Study
An important study was published in 1988, which was conducted by a Cardiologist named Dr. Randolph Byrd. A computer assigned 393 patients at a coronary care unit either to a group that was offered Spiritual Healing in addition to Medical Treatment or to a group that was not offered Spiritual Healing in addition to Medical Treatment. When the study was completed, the patients who got Spiritual Healing, benefited in several significant areas:
They required 20% less antibiotics than the patient who didnot get spiritual healing! They were 2.5 times less likely to suffer congestive heart failure!! They were less likely to suffer cardiac arrest and left the hospital earlier!!!
It may be concluded on the basis of the above and hundreds of other studies that Spiritual Healing taken up by an expert in the field of spirituality in addition to an expert in medical field, for people suffering from any disease has a beneficial effect, if the sufferer knew that he is in the safe hands of an effective Spiritual Healer in additon to effective Medical Practitioner.
Difference Between Contemporary Physicians and Quranic Healers!
Physicians and scientists are all acquainted with this unquantifiable life force, but are unable to interact with it directly except through its vehicle, the physical body. For that reason, scientists look intently to the outward existing body and invent procedures and techniques to keep the body in homeostasis (state of equilibrium), striving to keep the vital life force in the body as much as possible and to keep the body free of pain.
The contemporary physician is concerned primarily with the physical body as well as the psychological aspects of human existence. Treatments for illness are largely physical, whether in the forms of medication, surgical intervention, or otherwise.
Quranic Spiritual Healers, on the other hand, use an inward approach to healing by applying spiritual techniques and methods to utilize the body’s own energy. The difference between the spiritual healers and the physician healers is that the former is healing from inside-to-outside while the latter is healing from outside-to-in. Each are doing good for their patients and both meet on the common ground of curing disease and relieving pain and suffering.
In addition to this,Quranic Spiritual Healers have the in born capability, intution and psychic power to find out if there is an evil spiritual angle like black magic etc associated to any health problem which the patient is suffering and are in a position to take remedial steps to ward of the evil spiritual problem which doctors have no idea about.
Origins of Quranic Healing
Say: We believe in God and on that which has been sent on us and that sent down on Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and their decendants, and that which was given to Moses and Jesus and was given to all the prophets, from their Lord. We make no distinction between any one of them and we surrender ourselves to God alone. (Quran 2:136)
Spiritual healers inherited the Spiritual Technology that God’s messengers right from Prophets Adam, Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, David, Solomon, Moses, Jesus to the final Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon All Of Them) were using and from generations have practiced these methods up to the modern times.
In the Islamic Quranic tradition, healers utilize spiritual techniques based on scientific principles, which utilize the patient’s latent energy and the spiritual technological power contained in the devotions and supplications and meditations of the prophets and messengers of God.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was once in a session where he was curing people through spiritual methods when he was asked whether or not remedies should be sought from medicines. He said, “Yes, you must seek remedy from medicine, because whatever disease God has created in this world, He has also created its remedy as well. But there is one disease for which He has not created any remedy, which is old age.”
Each and every prescribed Quranic verse has its unique healing property, which differs from those of other verses.
