Q 2: A teacher said that the cause of death is due to medical negligence and that if a human being is not treated, he will die. Is medicine so significant in this issue? Is there evidence of this in the Qur'an or the Sunnah?
Does medicine have anything to do with life or death?
The Shari`ah gives evidence to seeking treatment with lawful medication.
Al-Bukhari and others reported on the authority of
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
There is no disease that Allah has created, except that He has also created its treatment.
Usamah ibn Sharik narrated that
A Bedouin came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said, "O Messenger of Allah, should we make use of medical treatment?" The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied affirmatively saying, "There is no disease that Allah has created, except that He has also created its treatment, which could be known to some of you but unknown to others."
Ahmad. These lawful medications for prevention (Part No. 24; Page No. 396) and treatment of disease are just a means; while cure and recovery are from Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
