Rasulullah is My Doctor : A Book Review


The man behind this book is Jerry D. Gray. He converted to Islam after he saw the truth of Islam when he was in the U.S. Air Force. He learned that Muhammad (Peace be upon Him), have a very healthy lifestyle that prevent Him from being sick. Muhammad (PBUH) is the first man telling us that there 360 joints in our body, not 340 as the scientist said until 1996.
Rasulullah reveals the benefit of honey to every disease. Also the benefit of brushing tooth, eating dates, fasting, sitting while drinking, not to blow food if they're too hot, etc.
Rasulullah really gave detailed information, and whoever follow Him, will be healthy inside and outside.
