In this study, the analysis of the list of simple organs (present in classical Unani literature) with the histological visualization of the tissues will be done. Conclusion: Definition of simple organs is exactly similar to the definition of tissue that signifies that histology is nothing but the timely progress in the chapter of simple organs. Future prospects and utility of the work: The text of simple organs in the Umūr Ṭabī‘yya must be edited in the light of present scientific tools and techniques to make clear the things for the students of Unani system of medicine and to keep its credibility in the systems.
