Title A Handbook of Spiritual Medicine

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, but it also recognises the struggles and insecurities we all succumb to from time to time, and offers up the remedies too.

Ibn Daud has presented a fresh exposition of this traditional science in a contemporary format that can be applied to busy lives in the modern, hi-tech era. Its tabular design and colourful traffic light approach makes it easy to reference for a new generation. Ibn Daud also presents the real and potential negative impact that social media has on our spiritual growth, and compares this with practical ways that its influence can be harnessed for benefit.

The author draws from 1000+ Qur’ānic verses and authentic ahādīth, inspiring mindfulness of the Almighty Cherisher and His Beloved Prophet, as well as drawing on the 11th and 12th Century works of the ‘Proof of Islam’ and wondrous sage, Imām Abū Hāmid Al-Ghazālī.

Spiritual Wellbeing Is Paramount

The Importance of Spiritual Purification

Just as you seek the best medical treatment to avoid illnesses and improve your physical health and wellbeing, whether that be paracetamol to treat a mere headache or something more substantial like chemotherapy to treat cancer, your soul can also suffer from spiritual illnesses such as ghadab (anger), riya (showing off), takabbur (pride and arrogance), hasad (envy), lack of shukr (ingratitude), hubb al-jah (love of fame), hubb al-mal (love of wealth), and the like.

Spiritual health is fundamentally different however, and in some respects more important. Why is this? The detrimental consequences of a physical illness will come to an end upon death; whereas, the evil result of a spiritual illness will begin upon death, and will last for eternity.
