• Narrated Nazi': Abdullah bin 'Umar said, "The Prophet said, 'Fever
is from the heat of Hell, so put it out (cool it) with water.' "Nafi'
added: 'Abdullah used to say, "O Allah! Relieve us from the
punishment," (when he suffered from fever). (Sahih bukhari Volume 7,
Book 71, Number 619)
We know that according to the principles of thermal physics
evaporation has a cooling effect as it is a cooling process. Therefore
sweating is a vital mechanism for keeping us cool during hot weather.
When water evaporates, it takes away 9.72 kilo-calories (1000 grams)
of energy per each mole (18 grams) of water with it.
Similarly, when a person has fever and his body temperature soars high
the Sunnah method of sprinkling water helps to control the high body
temperature. The heat energy needed to evaporate the water comes from
As a matter of fact when ever water evaporates, energy must be taken
from the environment (in this case, it is the body of person with
fever) in order for the liquid to become vapor.
