Prophet’s Guidance on treating headaches and Migraines


The best treatment for Migraine is Hijamah as 5 points on the head, which are Haamah, Yafookh, Qamahduwah & Akhda’ain, they are all the Sunnah points & you may check Hijamah points in Hadith.

As per the following Hadith:


عليّ بن أبي رافع، عن جدته سلمى خادم رسول اللّه صلى اللّه عليه وسلم قالت (ما كان أحد يشتكي إلى رسول اللّه صلى اللّه عليه وسلم وَجعاً في رأسه إلا قال: “احتجم” ولا وجعاً في رجليه إلا قال: “اخضبهما”) رواه داود(3).  وعنها أيضاً قالت: (كان لا يصيب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قرحة ولا شوكة إلا وضع عليها الحناء) رواه الترمذي بإسناد حسن


Ali Bin Abi Rafe’e reported on behalf of his grandfather Salma Radi Allaho Anh (servant of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam): “If someone complained to Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam for headache, the Prophet asked him for Hijamah & if some one complained for pain in his legs, Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam asked him to anoint with HENNA“. (Abu Dawood) He also reports “Whenever the Prophet suffered with injury or thorn piercing, the wound was only treated with Henna”. (Tirmizi)


Ibn Al Qayyam also wrote that the weaker side of the brain will accept septic material and the migraine headache will be accompanied by pulsation in the arteries. The pain could be relieved in this case when one ties a bandage so that the pulsing of the arteries is stopped and then the pain is lessened.


Abu Naeem said in his book on Prophetic medicine that the migraine type of headache used to attack Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam and that it would prevent him from going out of his house for one or two days at a time. In addition, Abu Naeem related from Ibn Abbas radi Allaho Anh that he said,


عن ابن عباس قال: خطبنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، وقد عَصَبَ رأسه بعِصَابةٍ. وفى ((الصحيح)): أنه قال فى مرض موته: ((وَارَأْسَاهُ)). وكان يُعصِّبُ رأسه فى مرضه، وعَصْبُ الرأس ينفع فى وجع الشقيقة وغيرها من أوجاع الرأس.


“Once, Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam delivered a speech while a cloth was tied around his head.


In addition, Sahih Hadith states that Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam said during the illness that preceded his death: “Ohh my head”. He used to tie a piece of cloth around his head. Tying a piece of cloth around the head helps soothe the pain of headaches and migraines.


So before taking a Panadol, try to tie your head with a cloth; & you will be following the habit of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam.


There are many types of headaches that result from various conditions. Headaches usually start when the head becomes hot due to the pressure of a septic vapor that accumulates near the head and which seeks a way out of the body but fails. Then, the pressure of the vapor intensifies, just as a pot when it is heated but the steam is unable to escape from it. It is a fact that when moisture heats up, it seeks more space to expand. Similarly, the vapor accumulates near the head and then causes a headache in the entire head because it is unable to expand or escape from the body as it heart up. This condition causes a type of dizziness.

So to remove septic substances & gaseous vapors that cause headache, Formula “T19” is the best Insha’Allah.

Try to keep your food as simple as possible, avoid over-eating & complex food combinations in a single meal, Tibb-e-Nabawi insists for a diet high in Fiber (Barley & its derivatives), low in Animal Proteins & low in healthy fats (Olive Oil exclusively), & absolutely free of damaged fats (Vegetable oils made by solvent extraction), PLUS some beautiful Diuretics that do not deplete Electrolytes, Nabeez ~ Drink made with soaked RaisinsBarley Water & Sakanjabeen (Honey & Vinegar) are the best beverages for you.
