Unbelieving doctors


Salamalaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatahu,

In MSN’s internet talks last year I think I heard MSN critisize seeing unbelieving doctors. Does this mean don’t see them?
Also, I saw a billboard advert about fast (internet access) without breaks, but I thought it might have been a ‘sign’ and advice, so I fasted everyday for about 3 weeks. My condition improved, but should I have carried on? Might I have been right in seeing a ‘sign’?
Thank you

wa `alaykum salam,

There are so many doctors of all faiths, including Muslim doctors, so finding a believing doctor is usually not too difficult.

Any inspiration you get that is in accordance with Shari`ah is acceptable, while any idea or message you get that is against Shari`ah is to be rejected.

The sunnah fasting days are Monday, Thursday, the 13th, 14th, 15th of the lunar month, and the other days mentioned in the Sirah, such as Nisf Shaban, Day of Arafah, `Ashura, etc.
