Meanwhile, Dean of FIKES UIN Jakarta Zilhadia also added that the various signs that inspired medical and pharmacy had begun to be studied by Muslim scholars since a dozen centuries ago. Some Muslim scholars such as al-Razi, Ibn Sina, Abu al-Qasim developed the practice of Islamic medicine which was inspired by the Koran, Hadith, and knowledge that developed at that time.
“Until now, their work is used as a reference for modern medicine. Many of the medical practices of Muslim researchers and doctors of that era were reviewed and recognized by various modern researchers,” she added.
