Friday Freaky Fatwa-Camel urine, miracle pee

A Muslim asks a scholar

I hope that you can provide me with a scientific answer – if such knowledge is available – about the hadeeth about drinking camel’s urine. May Allah reward you.

And the scholar replies
Praise be to Allah.

The Hadith referred to by the questioner is a reliable -Bukhari Hadith, in which it says that some people came to Madena and fell sick. The Prophet told them to drink the milk and urine of camels, and they recovered and grew fat. In the story it also says that they apostatized and killed the camel-herder, then the Muslims caught them and executed them.
did it piss them off?

With regard to the health benefits of drinking the milk and urine of camels, they are many, and they are well known to the earlier generations of medical science and they have been proven by modern scientific research.
But only in Saudi Arabia

In an article by Dr Ahlaam al-‘Awadi, which was published in al-Da’wah magazine, 15 April 2004 CE, about the diseases which can be treated with camel’s milk, as proven by experience, it says that there are many benefits in camel’s milk. There follows some of what was said in the article by Dr. Ahlaam:

Camel’s urine is efficacious in the treatment of skin diseases such as ringworm, tinea and abscesses, sores that may appear on the body and hair, and dry and wet ulcers.
I couldn’t find anything to verify this other than Islamic sites.

In the al-Jazeerah newspaper there is a quotation from the book Al-Ibl ‘The camel: secrets and wonders’ by Darmaan ibn ‘Abd al-‘Azeez Aal Darmaan and Sanad ibn Mutlaq al-Subay’i:

As for camel’s urine, the book suggests that it has numerous uses which are beneficial for man. This is indicated by the Prophetic texts and confirmed by modern science.  Scientific experiments have proven that camel’s urine has a lethal effect on the germs that cause many diseases.
Not sure about that, but I’ll bet it has lethal effects on your social life

In the Emirati newspaper 5 February 2006) it says:

One of the most important things for which camels are raised is their milk, which is efficacious in treating many illnesses, including hepatitis, and the digestive system in general, various types of cancer and other diseases.
Really?  Maybe she didn’t look at this

And Allah knows best

A Muslim asks a scholar

What are the benefits of camel urine?

And the scholar replies

Praise be to allah

Among the uses of camel’s urine, many women use it to wash their hair, to make it longer, and to make it lighter and more lustrous.
Recently the television network
al-Arabiya reported that Hair salons commonly use camel urine as a tonic and it sells for as much as $4.00 for one litre. Not only is it used as the hair tonic but some Arab researchers even say that drinking it is good for your liver; a claim which was denied by the University of Sanaa in Yemen.

 Camel’s urine is also efficacious in the treatment of swelling of the liver and other diseases such as abscesses, sores that appear on the body and toothache, and for washing eyes.
No need to come to the west for medical training, right?

Prof. Dr. ‘Abd al-Fattaah Mahmoud Idrees says: With regard to the benefits of camel’s urine in treating disease, Ibn Seena said in his Qanoon:
The most beneficial of urine is the urine of the Bedouin camels known as najeeb. Camel’s urine is beneficial in treating a pain in the heart caused by anger and so on.
Well then, I don’t think enough of them are drinking the pee.

Camel’s urine, especially the urine of a young she-camel – is used as a cleansing substance to wash wounds and sores, to make the hair grow, to strengthen and thicken it and to prevent it falling out, and it is used to treat diseases of the scalp and dandruff.
Again, the only information I could find was from Saudi doctors.

November 1998 CE, entitled A Study of the Chemical Composition and Some Medical Uses of the Urine of Arabian Camels, Muhammad Awhaaj says:

Laboratory tests indicate that camel’s urine contains high levels of potassium, albuminous proteins, and small amounts of uric acid, sodium and creatine.

In this study, he explained that what prompted him to study the medicinal properties of camel’s urine was what he had seen of some tribesmen drinking this urine whenever they suffered digestion problems. He sought the help of some doctors in studying camel’s urine. They brought a number of patients and prescribed this urine for them, for a period of two months. Their bodies recovered from what they had been suffering from, which proves the efficacy of camel’s urine in treating some diseases of the digestive system.
Hmm…maybe the digest problems were caused by eating camel meat.

It brought about an improvement in the condition of twenty-five patients who used camel’s urine for dropsy, without disrupting their potassium levels. Two of them were cured of liver pain, and their liver function was restored to normal levels, as well as the tissue of the liver being improved.

The experiment began by giving each patient a daily dose of camel’s urine mixed with camel’s milk to make it palatable. Fifteen days after the beginning of the experiment, the patients’ stomachs grew smaller and went back to their normal size.
Is there a doctor in the house?  I’d like to know if this is actually true.

He said that he examined the patients’ livers with ultrasound before the study began, and he found out that the livers of fifteen out of the twenty-five were in a cirrhotic state, and some of them had developed cirrhosis of the liver. All of the patients responded to treatment with camel’s urine, and some of them continued, by their own choice, to drink a dose of camel’s urine every day for a further two months. At the end of that time, they were all found to have been cured of cirrhosis of the liver. He said: Camel’s urine contains a large amount of potassium, as well as albumen and magnesium, because the camel only drinks four times during the summer and once during the winter, which makes it retain water in its body so as to preserve the sodium, and the sodium causes it not to urinate a great deal, because it keeps the water in its body.

He explained that dropsy results from a deficiency of albumen or potassium, and the urine of camels in rich in both of these.
In years gone by, a person might have been said to have dropsy. Today one would be more descriptive and specify the cause. Thus, the person might have
edema due to congestive heart failure.

Dr. Ahlaam said:

Camel’s urine contains a number of healing factors such as antibiotics (bacteria that are present in it, salts and urea). The camel possesses an immune system that is highly equipped to combat funguses, bacteria and viruses, because it contains antibodies.

It is a remedy for low libido, and it aids in bone growth in children and in strengthening the heart muscles. It may be used as a cleansing agent for cleaning wounds and sores, especially the urine of young she-camels.

 It also helps the hair to grow and become strong and thick, and it helps to prevent hair loss and baldness, and can be used to treat dandruff. Camel’s urine may also be used to combat disease by using bacteria extracted from it. It was used to treat a girl who was suffering from an infection behind the ear, that was accompanied by pus weeping from it and painful cracks and sores. It was also used to treat a girl who was unable to extend the fingers of her hands because of the presence of so many cracks and sores, and whose face was almost black with pimples. Dr. Ahlaam said:

Dr. Rahmah al-‘Ulyaani, who is also from Saudi Arabia, carried out tests on rabbits infected with bacteria in the colon. She treated each group of rabbits with a different kind of medicine, including camel’s urine. There was a noticeable regression in the rabbits that were treated with other medicines, except for camel’s urine, which brought about a clear improvement. Majallat al-Jundi al-Muslim, issue no. 1 January 2005 CE.

Allah calls upon us to ponder the creation of the camel, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):
88:17 “Do they not look at the camels, how they are created?”

This pondering is not limited to the outward form of the camel, or even to the inner workings of its body, rather it also includes that which we have discussed here, which is the benefits of the urine and milk of the camel. Modern scientific research is still discovering for us many of the wonders of this creature.

And Allah knows best.
which is why Allah invented the west
