Prophetic medicine is considered as an alternative medicine which is inexpensive as well as an effective way of treating the ailments which are sometimes considered as curable by other modes of medicine. The research design is cross sectional while assessing the current status of Prophetic medicine among traditional medicines and is based on content analysis. The research also identifies the obstacles in the development of Prophetic medicine among health informatics. It also proposes that how further development can be made to enhance healthcare in lives of people. The Informatics applications in Prophetic medicine are insufficient and are not participating as an active ingredient of medical guidance with IT despite of its potential as it is in a form of mostly e-health applications and websites that focus more on Prophetic traditions, spiritual healing, and Islamic obligations.</p> Huda Junaid, Sheikh Adnan Ahmed Usmani Copyright (c) 2020 Islamic Sciences Tue, 04 Feb 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Embodied Souls, or Ensouled Bodies: A Critical Analysis <p>Gender isn't a concept of being black and white or male and female. Times are hanging, and Americans no longer assume that everyone should fit into binary male or female categories. Globally, gender is determined by our genes and to be male or female is instilled in our nature, hence it is not just related to cultural indoctrination. Souls don't have a gender; they are the invisible sex. Life is made for us to face the challenges of human nature which have a certain control on our behavior, irrespective of the soul men perceive in a different way and women in a different way. Souls have no genitals, and certainly do not reproduce, thus they have no gender. Humans are more than just a body, the body is controlled by consciousness interconnected with the brain, denoting we have a soul. All the souls are made up of the same essence and substance but are verily distributed between individuals. We are not embodied souls, but ensouled bodies! This paper will focus on the belief of immortality and the arrival and presence of the soul and what happens to the gendered essence (the soul) when we die? </p> Willie Cox Copyright (c) 2020 Islamic Sciences Tue, 04 Feb 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Research Methodology in the Domain of Islamic Studies <p>The most important thing given by Allah Almighty to the human being is thinking power.

Regarding the propagation and preaching of Islamic teachings in Debal and Mansora, the ruling classes gave great respect to the scholars. They were not only taking care of all their needs but also honoring them by assigning the important post and positions in the state. The rulers did not make any difference in the service of the Ulema and the same response of respect and honor was from Ulema for the rulers. In this way, together they eliminated all matters which were non-Shari'ah in the state. This papers aims to revise such a brilliant collaboration of Ulema and rulers and their impact on the society, which actually is the important need of our society too. </p> Amber Mehar Copyright (c) 2020 Islamic Sciences Tue, 04 Feb 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Remedies of Social Decadence in Context of the Life of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) <p>In this article, putrefaction of society has been discussed along with the counterstrategies adopted by the Prophet (Peace be upon him). Since social vices have been the vestigial part of the Arab society, the Prophet (Peace be upon him) took up the cudgels and bestirred to eradicate moral decay, existent among the Arabs from the days of yore. Analogous to the situation, in the contemporary world, the similar social vices are being erected on the pretext of ‘modernization’, which has become the cause of demoralization for many. For this, in the current article, social maladies and moral turpitude like fib, backbiting, adultery, grudge, rancor etc. have been delineated. After being involved in elusive bustling, an individual blemishes his or her life in this world and hereafter, affecting Peace and Stability in the society. The only way out that one can adopt to escape herself/himself from this, is the way that has been unfolded by the Prophet (Peace be upon him). So, by acting upon the Prophet’s (Peace be upon him) instructions we can curb these social vices and moral turpitude in our society. </p> Rabia Copyright (c) 2020 Islamic Sciences Tue, 04 Feb 2020 00:00:00 +0000
