of respected scholars (even when a fatwa is not explicitly cited) to make their opinions accessible to English-speaking Muslims. If an answer does not
cite fatwas, please feel free to leave a comment asking for a fatwa citation and we will update the answer as soon as possible to include fatwas.
What is your views on the medical practices mentioned in the hadith such as cupping? As well as foods mentioned in the Quran such as figs and olives.
Cupping seems to be truly beneficial, for example studies have shown that it improves blood glucose levels in people with diabetes. I believe medical practices mentioned in hadith are beneficial provided the evidence for them is strong and there is also medical evidence in their favor.
As for foods that receive positive mentions in the Quran, I believe them to be healthy and beneficial.
And God knows best.
