If we search ‘Miracles of Quran’ online, more than thousand of articles will come within fraction of seconds by Islamic scholars, Maulvis and Muslim scientist. They don’t fail to brag about miracles in Quran, which according to them has many scientific details consistent with established science. Muslims also love to tell stories and tales of their Miraculous Prophet. Yes, Muhammad was miraculous, because without any degree in medicine, he used to cure his companions, with his medicines. Lets read few narrations from authentic Hadith collection, which talks about the medicines of Islamic Prophet.
Sahih Bukhari Vol 7 No 673 : Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “If a fly falls in the vessel of any of you, let him dip all of it (into the vessel) and then throw it away, for in one of its wings there is a disease and in the other there is healing (antidote for it) i e. the treatment for that disease.”
Have we got any Muslim here, who dipped a fly in his vessel and threw it away? Flies sit on most filthy and unclean thing, how can its Wings have Antidote or Medicine? But yes, Muhammad is correct in stating that flies wing has diseases, but flies wings have medicine, can only be suggested by a mentally retarded person.
In another Hadith, our Dr. Prophet suggests that pain can be relieved, if we apply the mixture of Saliva and Dust, this Hadith is from Sunaan Abu Dawood, but it is not present in Online version, or in e-book. Muslims know that it is an embarrassment for them, so they omitted it. The Hadith says:-
For any pain, mix saliva with dust, and then apply on the affected part…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 3.28.3886) [Wiki Islam]
Now, it is hard to believe that Saliva can cure diseases or relieve a man from his pain. Isn’t this too amazing? When we are talking of Medicines of Muhammad, then how can we forget famous Camel Urine? As per Muhammad, illness can be cured by Camel Urine. He suggested this to a group of people who fell ill.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 590: Narrated Anas: The climate of Medina did not suit some people, so the Prophet ordered them to follow his shepherd, i.e. his camels, and drink their milk and urine (as a medicine). So they followed the shepherd that is the camels and drank their milk and urine till their bodies became healthy. Then they killed the shepherd and drove away the camels. When the news reached the Prophet he sent some people in their pursuit. When they were brought, he cut their hands and feet and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron.
Beyond any doubt these suggestions are ludicrous, and absurd. But Muslims have got no option, they have to follow and do what their Prophet has commanded. So I would better ask Muslims to apply Saliva and dust, when in pain, and drink Camel’s urine, when feel sick and ill. And never forget to dip the wings of flies, as it is medicinal. Aren’t these Hadiths and Suggestion by the Holy Prophet of Islam absurd and humorous? Lastly, I would request Muslims readers to ‘have a glass of camel urine a day, and keep doctors away’.
