Said Ibn ‘Umr: The Prophet was never indecent nor ever talked inde-
cently. He used to say: The best of you are those who are finest in character.
Al-Bukharl relates that a Bedouin once pulled a cloak from the shoulders
of the Prophet with so violent a pull that he hurt his shoulder. Then he
said: O Mohamed, make me a present of the money of God which you
possess. The Prophet turned to him, laughed, and ordered a gift to be made
Verily the Prophet is good and chaste, the best of men in features and
in character. May God pray upon him and upon his followers a prayer which will never end and never finish.
The Merciful One never created one like to Mahomed.
And to my knowledge never will create one.
He is the sun of mid-day and the moon of mid-month.
He is the emrald among jewels. His place is one never given to other messengers. His rank is one never given to other men.
Folio 5 Now, the temperament of youth is evenly balanced. The temperament
of childhood inclines to damp and that of maturity and old age to cold.
The most evenly balanced of the organs is the skin of the tip of the index
finger and after this the tips of the other fingers. The hottest of the organs is the heart and after that the liver and the flesh. The coldest of all are the
bones and the nerves, the spinal cord and the brain. The driest of all is
bone. The dampest of all is fat.
Next among the seven compoments of the Constitution come the Four
Humours. Of these the most excellent is Blood, which is damp & hot. Its
property is to feed the body. Normal blood is sweet and without smell.
Next comes Phlegm and this is wet & cold. Its property is to convert
blood whenever the body lacks food, to keep the organs damp and to
prevent drying up due to movement. Normal phlegm is phlegm that is
near to changing into blood. Abnormal phlegm is salt or somewhat warm
or sour. It tends to be ripe and insipid. It is unmixed cold.
The third humour is Bile, which is hot & dry, It is stored in the Gall
Bladder. It renders the blood subtle and helps it to pass through the
very narrow channels. Part of it is carried to the bowels and produces the
characteristic colour of the faeces. Normal bile is slightly red. Abnormal
bile may be coloured like the yoke of an egg or coloured like leeks or
verdigris or be inflamed. Rusty bile is more powerful than leek-coloured
and it is a warning of Death. Bile is sometimes known as Yellow Bile.
Finally, there is Spleen. This is cold & dry. It thickens the blood and
feeds the spleen and the bones. Part of it passes to the mouth of the
stomach and sets up a desire for food and causes an acidity. Normal spleen forms the dregs of the blood. Abnormal spleen is described as inflamed,
Folio 6 that is, impure. Spleen is sometimes called Black Bile.
The fourth component of the Constitution is the Fundamental Organs.
The fifth component is the Spirits.
The sixth is the Faculties and they are three in number-the Natural,
the Vital, and the Psychic.
And the seventh and last component is the Functions and they are
two-the Function of Attraction and the Function of Repulsion. if you have any questions post a comment or email Amelqadri@gmail.com dont forget in your prayers
