‘Sharia Medicine’: Egyptian Clinic Treats People with Camel Urine

A recent Egyptian TV program showed how Islamic Sharia law’s many prescriptions do not merely clash with modern-day concepts like free speech and religious freedom, but even with medicine and science.

On September 16, popular TV persona Wael El-Ibrashi hosted Dr. Zaghlul al-Naggar, a prominent Islamic thinker and Chairman of Egypt’s Committee of Scientific Notions in the Quran, on the topic of medical science and Islam.  Inevitably the idea of drinking camel urine as a form of therapy—first proposed in the 7th century by Muslim prophet Muhammad—came up.

Not only did Dr. Naggar promote this practice, but he made the staggering announcement that right now in Egypt a medical center in Marsa Matrouh actually specializes in treating people with camel urine, all in accord with the prophet’s advice.

Other Egyptian thinkers joined the show via satellite, including Khaled Montaser (who earlier exposed the Islamic world’s “inferiority complex”).  At one point, while delineating how science and medicine work, Montaser reminded that urine is where all the body’s toxins are carried out, asking “so, shall we drink it for health?” Naggar simply responded with arrogance: “I am older than you and more learned than you: you are not going to teach me; I will teach generations of people like you.”

Egyptian thinker, Sayyid al-Qemany—whose strong support for rationalistic thinking and the separation of religion and state caused Egypt’s Islamic establishment to pronounce him an apostate infidel—also joined the show via phone, deploring the very idea that drinking camel urine could heal people.

Referring to Naggar’s announcement that there is a clinic specializing in treating people with camel urine as a “catastrophe” that only indicates how far Egypt has sunk, Qemany called on Egyptian health officials to verify if such a medical center truly exists, saying this is a serious issue involving the health of Egypt’s citizenry.

Naggar tried to defend the “salutary benefits” of camel urine by arguing that European pharmacies produce a medicine that contains female urine (possibly a reference to HCG).  Qemany replied that such medicines are not based on drinking crude urine but are synthetic, exclaiming, “does this mean I should go drink my wife’s urine?!”

    It just never ends with these people. Drinking camel urine?! Are you serious? But like the article says, it just shows how slavish they are to their beduin prophet — anything he says go. How can anyone still be blind to this cult called Islam when they do stuff like this just because that medieval savage they call a prophet said so?

    • Toe

      Answer to your last statement: a fat hook nose, the stench of turd, and two cow eyes with nothing going on behind them.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      In Islam alcohol is BAD and camel urine is GOOD.

      Like Freedom is BAD and jihad is GOOD.

      • hjgjhgjhghj

        For Hindus Cow urine is good , Jihad means struggle , enterprising. In the world there are many religion , only a small percentage of peole do follow to various extent. So all the buggers are same. Howmany thousands of non moslims are benefiting in GULF. One must use the head ! Buggers drink alcohol for introxication. Do you have any brain!!

      GREETING FROM ISLAMABAD, A HOLY CITY OF ISLAMIC GREATNESS.
      HOW CAN YOU BE DENYING THE WISDOM OF THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER LIVED?
      THERE ARE MUSLIM SCIENTISTS WHO HAS DISCOVER THAT CAMEL URINE IS HEALTHY
      AND SANITARIUM. IT IS ALSO MOST NATURAL THING, UNLIKE THE CHEMICAL DRUGS YOUR
      WESTERN MEDICIEN MAKE.

    • Alex Mohamed

      TO ALL YOU ISLAM HATERS, the joke is on You…!!!!

      Please google PREMARIN.

      It is a an AMERICAN drug derived from the urine of pregnant mares (female,horses).

      So why is that acceptable for Americans to consume horse urine? And yet you mock God's greatest prophet for something similar?????!!!!!

      Last, Prophet Mohamed suggested this drink as a medicine to a specific person with a specific illness and to get the urine from a specific camel grazing on specific plants.

      GOD IS ONE. NOT THREE. JESUS IS A GREAT PROPHET, NOT EQUAL TO GOD OR SON OF GOD, ETC. You accept God eats food and uses the bathroom….!!!!!??????

      But mock Prophet Muhammed for something I just showed has been proven as a medical remedy…..!

      Peace,

    The last time I read about people drinking urine was from a medical journal on mental disorders. Civilized humans don’t do this unless they practice perverted sexual acts. Uric acid is quite caustic and can damage human tissue.

    Hello? Are there any Muslims out there reading these forums? Are you so blind? Are you in the moon with your moon-god adoring pedophile?

    Check it up on the internet in medical articles…piss ain’t good for ya! duh!

      Yes, dear patient….please take two cups of camel urine and swallow a lump of camel feces with it and call me in the morning…..if you can.

      • Kufar Dawg

        NO, no, no! You are supposed to eat each one of the wings of a fly after drinking camel urine, because while one wing holds illness the other is its cure.

      • Sunbeam

        Ha, ha, ha, ha…….oh my goodness! This shows how ignorant they are even till this age. They've no brains but yet try to be smart.

    • Ahmed Saleh

      Yes there are Muslims out here, but we're just busy laughing cause the laugh's on you, while you are stuck behind your prejudice, we are utilizing everything God gave us for our benefit. Camel urine is a cure, and it had been scientifically proven, but you too hateful to check it. Check this if you dare: (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10213804) for a more extensive article: (http://islamqa.info/en/ref/83423) education, it's good for you.

  • David R

    Why do these Muslim slaves always add "Peace be on him" when refering to their P.P. (pedophile prophet)???
    Isn't he already supposed to be in peace where he is now next to his satanic god Allah?
    So stop bugging him with this peace thing!!! First it was peace…now it's piss!
    It's really hard to get our brain to even try to understand these savages from mullah-land. Give us a break guys…stop drinking this stuff. It's turning your brains to jello.

    • Guest

      "Peace be upon him" is pure Taqiyya and the eternal lie

    • Kufar Dawg

      They wish the same peace on the filthy kufr of the world, the peace of the grave.

  • Gee

    We can only hope that all Islamic regimes adapt this and every other 'Sharia compliant measure.

    We can start by informing them of the fact that most of the medical advances that they current use were invented and/or discovered by Jews

  • Marty

    All this time I believed that mohamad urged his followers to consume his urine. At least qaddafi drank warm camel milk each morning. Will we be required to purchase bottles of camel urine under obamacare? Will doing so require a physician's prescription? Will a cabinet post be created for the appropriate distribution of camel urine? Will there be a camel urine panel to decide who can receive camel urine and in what amounts?

  • Atikva

    This is absolutely serious, and no new "discovery" either. Already in 2009, a Saudi woman "physician" was awarded a gold medal in Malaysia for her research about camel urine to cure most types of cancer, no less. Here is an extract from the article concerning this new "scientific" discovery :

    Quote
    Dr. Faten Abdel-Rahman Khorshid is responsible for one of the Kingdom’s greatest national achievements in the field of science for her work which began with the urine of camels and concluded in a potential cure for cancer. After spending more than five years in lab research, this Saudi scientist and faculty member from King Abdul Aziz University (KAAU) and President of the Tissues Culture Unit at King Fahd Center for Medical Research, has discovered that nano-particles in the urine of camels can attack cancer cells with success. Her work began with experiments involving camel urine, cancer cells found in patients’ lungs and culminated in injecting mice with leukemic cancel cells and camel urine to test the results.
    Speaking to the Saudi Gazette, Dr. Khorshid claimed that she was inspired by Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) medical advice and that camel urine consists of natural substances that work to eradicate malignant cells and maintain the number of healthy cells in a cancer patient.
    “This treatment is not an invention, but rather, taken from our Prophet’s legacy,” she remarked." etc…

    The rest of the article can be found here: http://www.saudigazette.com.sa/index.cfm?method=h

    In saudi hospitals, they already place copies of their coran on patients to insure their recovery and studying physicians place it on their heads.

    Ibn Sina (Avicenna), famous 11th century physician, must be turning in his grave!

    • David R

      Yeah…sure. And remember the trash comic book called the koran also teaches that Muslims must lie and cheat on any occasion where their satanic religion is compromised or questioned.
      God's real Holy Word, the Bible gives eternal life and peace to all who believe on Christ as only Savior. Only a superstitious fool would place a Bible on one's ailment in order to promote healing; but these Muslims have been duped into believing that a demonic counterfeit of the Bible written by a sick pedophile and abject sinful human being, can cure when placed on someone. Primitive, pagan superstition to say the least.
      The Muslim Obama got it all wrong…Islam hasn't contributed to anything during its history to better mankind…only death and destruction…the same reserved for us if we don't fight back against these Muslim bullies who try to intimidate us through their world-controlling agendas of destruction.

  • Omar

    Wow. That is so messed up. Why do the Islamists do weird (and disgusting) things like drinking camel urine? That's so disgusting. People need genuine medicine to treat illnesses, not an animal waste. The waste itself most likely carries diseases. The Islamists in Egypt have turned back the clock indeed. With the Islamists in power, Egypt has clearly gone backwards.

  • Ahmed bin Urine

    I hearbye issue a fatwa condemning all Muslims who do not treat their illnesses with camel urine as infidels!!!

      Stop lying, freedom is mentioned in the quran in several verses, but you don't know anything about the quran, do you?

      "There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in falsehood and believes in God then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And God is All-Hearer, All-Knower." (quran 2:256)

      "And say, "The truth is from your Lord, so whoever wills – let him believe; and whoever wills – let him disbelieve." Indeed, We have prepared for the wrongdoers a fire whose walls will surround them." (quran 18:29)

    I do not understand all this controversy. If it was good rnough for Dr Muhammad, then it must be god for the rest of us. And please remember Allah knows best and it was he who advised Dr Muhammad. Furthermore if you do not agree with me, I will get a friend to visit you on a martyrdom mission.

    Of course Arabs treat people with Camel urine–Arabs are for the most–an ignorant and backward people–this for the most can be attributed to their adherence to Godless Islam!

    Let's not forget–Arabs [Islam] Egyptians in particular believes its good for men to copulate with their dead wives bodies!

    This is the evil and ugly face of Islam–to repress, dumb down, kidnap, rape and murder–there is nothing good in Islam–nothing!

  • Daniel Fagan

    I will not condemn the practice- Has any one investigated the properties and ingredients of camel urine? We in the west used human urine up until the industrial revolution for a number of reasons. We used it for purposes as diverse as whitening cloth to whitening teeth. 70 years ago doctors had contempt for housewives who dressed wounds with spoiled fruit, until penicillin was discovered. We have received many drugs in tropical regions from tribal healers in places where people do not count above the number 10. As backward and ignorant as Muslim culture is, they still possess intellect.

    • Kufar Dawg

      Really? Do you have any proof for your theories? Yeah, I'd particularly like to see how someone would market urine as a teeth whitening formula. LOL, maybe you should be hanging out at barroom urinals to collect all that liquid gold Haji!

    there have been several medical research studies about the benefit of camel urine and camel first milk nd camel milk . you can find these studies online on pubmed medline research search-engines.
    fresh camel milk contains antibiotics while camel milk contains in addition to those antibiotica the nano immuno-globulins found only in camels these nano particles can be absorbed by digestive system and help the immune system of the drinker of camel milk, not to mention the lactoferrins etc.
    for best results the patient has to live with the camels so they are introduced to his germs and or ailment and produce the exact specefic nano immunoglobulins in there bodies and ultimately in their milk and urine, pregnant camels loose immunoglobulins to their urine in the last month of pregnacy and during lactation.

    There have been many attempts made to weed out the incorrect hadith of the Prophet. During the time of Umweeads lots of hadiths were subscribed to the Prophet. Such as " according to so and so son of so and son of so and……..and son of the companion of the Prophet so and so the prophet said if you take this medicine presribed by me you will cured of your disease ". Thus the Prophet was expolited for financial gain by lots of quacks as he has been expolited many other delicate matters. The way Jesus is beind rediculed by the so called Christians now Muslims had to put up those in the earlier part of Islam from so called Muslims.

    Please note Premarin is the end product.
    Urine is taken at a particular stage in a mare's life.
    Estrogen is extracted from that urine.
    They are bred for the purpose, not wild/free.
    It is not taken direct by mouth.
    Involves a scientific process.
    The synthetic form does not use urine of pregnant mares at all.
    quote
    There are many natural and synthetic estrogen supplements available as alternatives to Premarin.
    A generic version of Premarin would save female consumers approximately $300 million a year, not to mention a generic version would not involve horses or harvesting the horse's urine.

    Where is the citation in the Qur’an saying drinking camels urine does this? This is a joke. There are book shelves and book shelves of hadith and a lot of them don’t have very high credibility. And it is funny how those are used and no one thinks twice about them.
