DESCRIPTION
Interested in learning about natural medicine? How to apply the understanding of traditional healers on your health and wellbeing?
Come join us for this full day workshop with traditional Unani Tibb practitioner, Hakim Shahid Bukhari.

WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?
In this workshop we will be learning the foundational pillar of Unani Tibb (also known as Greek-Arabic or Islamic Medicine): Temperament. The understanding of temperament is the primary principle of all systems of natural medicine, including Tibb, Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
We are all different. It is our unique characteristics and quirks that make up our disposition, or temperament. This directly influences our state of health and inclination toward illnesses.
Understanding your temperament can help you plan a diet that is optimum for you, and pursuit activities that promote a happy, healthy and productive lifestyle in harmony with yourself and the world around you.
WHAT WILL YOU TAKE AWAY?
Some of the topics that will be covered during the workshop:
The four temperaments and their differences
The concept of hot, cold, dry and wet
Learning your temperament
How knowing your own temperament can help you in your health and understanding ‘self’ and relationships
Understanding how your temperament changes as you age
Determining your own temperament and that of your family and friends

Honey and bees in light of Islamic Medicine and the Prophetic Traditions

Many of us are aware of the sayings of the Blessed Prophet Muhammad (SAW), regarding their being healing from two, as he states..
“Honey is a remedy for every illness and the Quran is a remedy for all illness of the mind, therefore I recommend to you both remedies, the Quran and honey.” Sahih Bukhari
However many of us may not be aware of his saying
Imam Ahmad on the authority of `Abdullah bin `Amr.
قال رسول الله ﷺ : و الذي نَفْسُ مُحَمَّدٍ بِيَدِهِ إِنَّ مَثَلَ المؤمِنِ كَمَثَلِ النَّحْلَةِ أَكَلَتْ طَيِّبَاً و وَضَعَتْ طَيِّبَاً و وَقَعَتْ فَلَمْ تَكْسِرْ و لَمْ تُفْسِدْ
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “By the One in whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, The similitude of a believer is like that of a bee, if it eats something, it takes good food, if it digests, it brings forth good (honey), and if it reaches a broken wooden branch, it doesn’t break it as well.”
The bee only eats from flowers which are tayyib (pure and wholesome). It is not attracted to repulsive things, unlike other insects. Likewise the believer only eats that which is pure and wholesome.The bee produces honey which is also tayyib. Likewise only that which is good and wholesome comes forth from the believer, whether it be his words, his intentions or his actions.The bee is light and nimble and does not break the flowers upon which it lands, nor does it ruin them. Likewise the believer is gentle in his dealings with the creation and does not harm or ruin any human or animal or plant.
We also know the Almighty says:
Chapter (49) sūrat l-ḥujurāt (The Dwellings)

“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.”

Some scholars advise the tarafu- to know one another, is not just so you know people have different foods,cultures,skin colours etc- it means more deeply to do good to one another, because if we think back to the beginning of creation we are all the Children of Adam, brothers and sisters in humanity, so let us work in this way towards the common good and then maybe the Almighty will shower his mercy and blessings upon us all.
In terms of our bodies, it is essential to follow the prescribed treatments mentioned- and honey is but part of the the whole plethora of medicaments from Tibb an Nabawi. It as such should be combined with other treatments to assist not only humans but also animals to help cure disease. Sidr honey is mentioned to come from the Lote tree, and has many beneficial properties; but one should remember that any pure honey also contains these benefits.
