Islam, in fact, urges people to seek treatment in case of illness. In more than one Hadith, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) gave instruction to Muslims regarding hygiene and treatment to the extent that numerous invaluable books have been written on “The Prophet’s Medicine.”
The eminent Muslim scholar, Sheikh `Abdel Khaliq Hasan Ash-Shareef, states the following:
“According to a Hadith narrated by Imam Al-Bukhari in his Sahih, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), told Muslims to go out behind camels and drink their urine in treatment of illness.
Accordingly, Islam permits people to drink camels’ urine and milk in medication. The same rule applies to honey and black cumin or habbat al-barakah. Apparently, medication should be based on reliable doctors’ advice. If a reliable and trustworthy doctor prescribes camels’ urine for treatment, then there is nothing wrong in drinking it.
This indicates that the permissibility of drinking camel’s urine is in the case of medical necessity, which means that if another lawful alternative is available, then people may use it instead.”
