Prophet Muhammad's Hadith of the Fly is
confirmed by Science:

1- The Prophet's Sayings. 2- The Scientific Proofs.
3- Renowned Islamic Scholars state that the
Prophet made errors in the past. 4- The Hadith of the fly is not a Mutawatir one.
The Prophet's Sayings:
Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, made a remarkable statement about the
flies carrying antidotes:
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."
(Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 71, Number
Narrated Abu Huraira: "The Prophet said "If a house fly
falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink),
for one of its wings has a disease
and the other has the cure for the disease."
(Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number
The Scientific Proofs:
The following articles are from non-Muslim Western sources.
The surface of flies is the
last place you would expect to find antibiotics, yet
that is exactly where a team of Australian researchers is
concentrating their efforts.
Working on the theory that flies must have
remarkable antimicrobial defences to survive rotting dung, meat and
fruit, the team at the
Department of Biological Sciences,
Macquarie University, set out to identify those
antibacterial properties manifesting at different stages of a fly's
"Our research is a small part of a global
research effort for new antibiotics, but we are looking where we
believe no-one has looked before," said Ms Joanne Clarke, who
presented the group's findings at the
Australian Society for Microbiology Conference
in Melbourne this week. The project is part of her PhD thesis.
The scientists tested four different
species of fly: a house fly, a sheep blowfly, a vinegar fruit fly
and the control, a Queensland fruit fly which lays its eggs in fresh
fruit. These larvae do not need as much antibacterial compound
because they do not come into contact with as much bacteria.
Flies go through the life stages of larvae
and pupae before becoming adults. In the pupae stage, the fly is
encased in a protective casing and does not feed. "We predicted they
would not produce many antibiotics," said Ms Clarke.
They did not.
However the larvae all
showed antibacterial properties (except that of the
Queensland fruit fly control).
As did all the adult fly species, including
the Queensland fruit fly (which at this point requires antibacterial
protection because it has contact with other flies and is mobile).
Such properties were present on the fly
surface in all four species, although antibacterial properties occur
in the gut as well. "You find activity in both places," said Ms
"The reason we concentrated on the surface
is because it is a simpler extraction."
The antibiotic material is
extracted by drowning the flies in ethanol, then
running the mixture through a filter to obtain the crude extract.
When this was placed in a solution with
various bacteria including E.coli, Golden Staph, Candida (a yeast)
and a common hospital pathogen, antibiotic action was observed every
"We are now trying to identify the specific antibacterial
compounds," said Ms Clarke. Ultimately these will be
Because the compounds are not from
bacteria, any genes conferring resistance to them may not be as
easily transferred into pathogens. It is hoped this new form of
antibiotics will have a longer effective therapeutic life.

Some species of
calliphorid blowflies lay their eggs in wounds; their larvae develop
by feeding on the tissue, and the infection is known as myiasis or
fly-strike. But wounds, from whatever cause, are frequently
contaminated with bacteria - many o f which can spread in the
bloodstream causing septicaemia and/or toxaemia. For example, wound
contamination with Clostridium welchii - leading to 'gas gangrene' -
was a frequent cause of death amongst battlefield casualties. It is
from such situations that early observations were made on the
beneficial effect of some blowfly larvae in limiting the bacterial
infection of wounds.
Indeed, some military surgeons would deliberately infest wounds with
blowfly maggots in order to prevent bacterial complications.
Now, a century or two later, the search for new antibiotics had led
researchers back to these early observations, and in this article,
Gory Erdmann describes progress in understanding the antibacterial
action of blowfly maggots.

The male fruitfly, Drosophila melanogaster,
transfers to his mate proteins that increase his reproductive success by
causing changes in her behavior and physiology.
Here we show that among the
transferred proteins are ones with antibacterial activity. We
performed Escherichia coli overlay assays of native PAGE or renatured
SDS–PAGE of reproductive tissue extracts of wild-type or transgenic males
deficient in accessory gland function. We detected a 28 kDa male accessory
gland-derived protein and two ejaculatory duct-derived proteins all with
antibacterial activity. Based on its gel mobility and tissue of synthesis,
one of the ejaculatory duct proteins is likely to be andropin, a
previously-reported 6 kDa antibacterial peptide. All three proteins are
transferred to females during mating. Therefore, they could assist in
protecting the male's reproductive tract
and, after transfer to the
female, the female's reproductive tract or eggs against bacterial infection.
Since seminal fluid proteins are transferred before the sperm, these
antibacterial proteins may also protect sperm from bacterial infection.
"With regard to worldly matters: this happened to the
Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). With regard to
agriculture, medicine, carpentry, etc., he was like all other people. Allaah did
not tell us that he was sent to us as a businessman or a farmer or a carpenter
or a doctor. His mistakes in these
fields are quite natural and do not impact on his Message at all."
Many other statements from renowned Muslim scholars, of both
old and current ones, exist in the article.
Personally, I only give my 100% of trust to the Noble Quran,
because it is from Allah Almighty. Everything else is prone to
containing errors and does contain errors. The Noble Quran is the one and
only Book that contains no errors, and this is no mere statement from me.
Science today has confirmed over and over and over that the Quran's Scientific
Statements are indeed in perfect harmony with Science.
What I am saying is that when we hear a Scientific Hadith
(Saying) from the Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, we have to be very
careful to not give it 100% of full trust and credibility due to the following
1- The Prophet did make errors in
the past in some scientific fields as the scholars in the above article
2- The Prophet was not Allah
3- The Prophet at the end of the
day was only a mere human, who happened to be Righteous enough to be Chosen by
Allah Almighty to be His Messenger to us, Mankind. While this certainly makes the Prophet better than all of us, but at the end of the day,
it still doesn't make him a scientist. He still remains a mere human who
knew some things and was ignorant about other things, just like all of us.
Only Allah Almighty Knows all things.
4- The Hadiths (Sayings) of the
Prophet were officially compiled in the authenticated volumes, or the
Sahih Volumes, around 200 years after his death. This means that
it is quite possible, and highly probable, that many Hadiths that we have today
are not in their original forms. They had been altered, either
intentionally or unintentionally.
5- There are 9 main Sunni
Hadiths' volumes (كتب السنة التسعة), and
many others that are considered less authentic and trustworthy. These nine
The 9 main Sunni Hadiths volumes:
Sunan Abu Dawud.
Sunan Ibn Maja.
The Hadiths, in general, from these volumes and
others, are divided into 5 categories:
Hadiths - Those are ones that exist multiple times in
a single volume and they exist in many or all of the Hadiths'
main 9 volumes. Those are the strongest and the best
Hadiths. They were common knowledge to the people, 1,500
years ago, and the people had successfully passed them down from
generation to generation.
The Ahaad or Hasan
Hadiths - Ahaad is derived from Ahad, which means
Absolute One, and the latter is one of
Allah Almighty's 99 Divine Attributes. Hasan
means good. Both refer to the same Hadiths, and they are
Hadiths that have complete good, solid and trustworthy people in
their chain of narrations, but they were not narrated by
The Da'eef Hadiths -
They are the weak Hadiths. Da'eef means weak in Arabic,
and a da'eef Hadith is one that is not Mutawatir and not an
Ahaad or Hasan one. It is one that has questionable
narrators in its chain. They were either unknown, or they
were people who had a history of questionable integrity.
The Hadith could be true and it could be false. It is
considered weak and doubtful. Most Muslim Scholars reject
the Da'eef Hadiths.
The Maw'qoof Hadiths
- They are also called Maq'too'a Hadiths.
Maw'qoof means stopped, and Maq'too'a means "is cut" in Arabic.
These are Hadiths that have gaps or missing links
in their chain of narrators. They too are considered weak
and very doubtful. Most Muslim Scholars reject the
Hadiths - They are ones that are suspicious.
They appear, based on their text and other factors, to be
fabrications that were invented on the mouths of the Prophet
and/or his companions. Almost all of the Muslim scholars
reject these Hadiths.
There are also the
Qudsi Hadiths, and
these are divided between the Mutawatir and Ahaad Hadiths.
Which Hadiths are True,
and which are fabricated Conspiracies and Blasphemies and Lies?
"Abu Harb b. Abu al-Aswad
reported on the authority of his father that Abu Musa al-Ash'ari
sent for the reciters of Basra. They came to him and they were three
hundred in number. They recited the Qur'an and he said: You are the
best among the inhabitants of Basra, for you are the reciters among
them. So continue to recite it. (But bear in mind) that your
reciting for a long time may not harden your hearts as were hardened
the hearts of those before you. We used to recite a surah which
resembled in length and severity to (Surah) Bara'at. I have, however, forgotten it with the exception
of this which I remember out of it:" If there were two valleys full
of riches, for the son of Adam, he would long for a third valley,
and nothing would fill the stomach of the son of Adam but dust."
And we used so recite a slirah which resembled one of the surahs of
Musabbihat, and I have forgotten it, but remember (this much) out of
it:" Oh people who believe, why do you say that which you do not
practise" (lxi 2.) and" that is recorded in your necks as a witness
(against you) and you would be asked about it on the Day of
Resurrection" (xvii. 13)."(Sahih Muslim, Book 5:
The Book of Zakat (Kitab Al-Zakat), Book 005, Number 2286)
The answer is very simple:
1- The doubt happened in Iraq, not in Madina or Mecca.
2- Why go to a doubtful source, when you have the primary source?
3- The Holy Quran was written and compiled on the spot during
Prophet Muhammad's days, peace be upon him.
4- Memorizing the Holy Quran was something the Muslims big on,
because it was from Allah Almighty, and also because they needed to
read the Holy Book in their daily Prayers.
5- The Holy Quran was perfectly preserved in Mecc and Madina.
6- The noise that you hear is from places that were many 100s of
miles away, on foot.
7- And who told you that these Hadiths are reliable? I am one
Muslim that believes that there are consipracies done in the Bukhari
and Muslim and other Hadith collections. Yes, they contain Truth in
them. But they also contain what clearly appears to be deliberate
poisons in there to poison the believers' faith. Example of this:
A person was walking down, and saw monkies stonning to
death an adulterous she-monkey?? (Source).
Do animals even have these types of rituals and intelligence among
And what's even funnier is that the narrator (the guy) says that he
started stonning the she-monkey with them (Source).
I mean this is as if he is deliberately spitting in the face of the
reader, and the reader's intelligence! It is as if there is a
hidden message to the Muslim reader that says:
"Hey stupid! This
is in your so-called most authentic hadiths collections."
Why does such garbage exist in the Sahih Bukhari and Muslim and
other Hadith collections?
Two simple missing "verses" caused so much noise:
Another example of the poisons injected in the Sahih Hadiths
literature is this:
1- The so-called missing stonning (rajm) Verse (Ayah).
2- The so-called ADULTS ALLOWED TO SUCH breasts and become foster
children to any female verse (ayah).
I ask you in the Holy Name of GOD Almighty, could not any living
person in Mecca and Madina even
memorize the texts
of these two small and simple verses?? We're not
talking BOOKS MISSING HERE. We're talking about two simple short
verses that we don't even have their texts??
Clearly this is nothing but poison of lies injected in the Sahih
Hadiths volumes. It's a conspiracy against Islam from within!
Again, spitting in the face and intelligence of the reader!
What's even more funnier and monkier than this is
that in Egypt and Saudi Arabia they had huge debates about whether a
grown up man can suck a woman's breasts and become her foster
child. Yet, in the Holy Quran, sucking the breasts is only for the
first two years of the child's life. So even a small kid is not
allowed to suck his mother's breasts; let alone a grown up man like
ME sucking a a woman's breasts:
mothers shall give suck to their offspring for two whole years,
if the father desires to complete the term....
(The Noble Quran,
Would not the drawn attention have caused for the
"verses" to be memorized and documented?
We are taught in our Islamic Hadiths literature that Caliph Omar
said the following to the Muslims:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
'Umar said, "I am
afraid that after a long time has passed, people may say, "We
do not find the Verses of the Rajam (stoning to death) in the Holy
Book," and consequently they may go astray by leaving an obligation
that Allah has revealed. Lo! I confirm that the penalty
of Rajam be inflicted on him who commits illegal sexual intercourse,
if he is already married and the crime is proved by witnesses or
pregnancy or confession." Sufyan added, "I have memorized this
narration in this way." 'Umar added, "Surely Allah's Apostle carried
out the penalty of Rajam, and so did we after him." (Sahih
Bukhari, Book 82: Punishment of Disbelievers at War with Allah and
His Apostle, Volume 8, Book 82, Number 816)
And regarding the verses about the suckling of adults:
عن عائشة قالت لقد نزلت
آية الرجم ورضاعة الكبير عشرا ولقد كان في صحيفة تحت سريري فلما مات
رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وتشاغلنا بموته دخل داجن فأكلها
Reported 'Aisha (RA):
â€˜the verse of stoning and of suckling an adult ten times was
revealed, and they were (written) on a paper and kept under my
pillow. When the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) expired and we were
occupied by his death, a goat entered and ate away the paper.â€™
Ibn Majah, Hadith 1944)
Question: Since supposedly so much light was shed
upon these two topics by Omar and Aisha, and so much attention was
drawn to them, how come then no one was able to come up with their
texts?? Today, we do not have the actual texts of those alleged
"verses". All we have are empty claims in the poisoned books!
Doesn't this prove that these alleged conversations by Omar and
Aisha, may Allah Almighty be pleased with them, - in the narrations
above, - never
actually took place? In other words, they are lies
on the mouths of Omar and Aisha, just like that lie above about the
stoning of the
This should further demonstrate that there are injected lies and
conspiracies in our Hadiths collections. Now, this doesn't mean
that we should reject the Hadiths by the wholesale. No.
I am not a Qurani or
Quran-Only Muslim. In fact, I exposed this false
on the this website. But false hadiths above clearly
demonstrate that there are conspiracies, from within, against
Islam. You couldn't possibly be a sane person, and at the same time
accept the stoning of the she-monkey Hadith! Yet, it's in our
strongest and supposedly most authentic Hadiths collections.
The same goes with the suckling for adults and the stoning alleged
"verses". With all of the supposed drawn attention to them, it
should've been very easy for Muslim to write them down. After all,
1- Did they not come down for all Muslims?
2- Were they not memorized by many Muslims?
3- Were they not written down by other Muslims?
The Prophet got bewitched through a piece of his
Here is another example that further demonstrates the clear
conspiracy and poisons of lies that were deliberately injected into
our Hadiths literature, from within. Consider the following absurd
"That Allah's Apostle
was affected by magic, so much that he used to think that he had
done something which in fact, he did not do, and he invoked his Lord
(for a remedy). Then (one day) he said, "O 'Aisha!) Do you know that
Allah has advised me as to the problem I consulted Him about?"
'Aisha said, "O Allah's Apostle! What's that?" He said, "Two men
came to me and one of them sat at my head and the other at my feet,
and one of them asked his companion, 'What is wrong with this man?'
The latter replied, 'He is under the effect of magic.' The former
asked, 'Who has worked magic on him?' The latter replied, 'Labid bin
Al-A'sam (a Jew).' The former asked, 'With what did he work the
magic?' The latter replied, 'With a comb
and the hair, which are stuck to the comb, and the skin of
pollen of a date-palm tree.' The former asked, 'Where is that?' The
latter replied, 'It is in Dharwan.' Dharwan was a well in the
dwelling place of the (tribe of) Bani Zuraiq. Allah's
Apostle went to that well and returned to 'Aisha, saying, 'By Allah,
the water (of the well) was as red as the infusion of Hinna, (1) and
the date-palm trees look like the heads of devils.' 'Aisha added,
Allah's Apostle came to me and informed me about the well. I asked
the Prophet, 'O Allah's Apostle, why didn't you take out the skin of
pollen?' He said, 'As for me, Allah has cured me and I hated to draw
the attention of the people to such evil (which they might learn and
harm others with).'
So a Jew steals a piece of the Prophet's hair,
says abakadabra on
it, and the Prophet gets betwiched??
Why can't this be a Jew-hating lie that was invented by liars who
fabricated this entire story for propaganda? Now, you all know how
vicious I am against zionism on this website. But I am not against
innocent Jews or any innocent person, in general. This false story
just doesn't make any sense, and it is quite absurd! Not only that,
but it clashes head-on with the Holy Quran:
know best why it is they listen, when they listen to thee; and when
they meet in private conference, behold, the wicked say, "Ye follow none other than a man
(Why) has not a treasure been bestowed on him, or why has he (not) a
garden for enjoyment?" The wicked
say: "Ye follow none other than a man bewitched."
So if Prophet Muhammad was betwiched, then the Quran has failed in
Noble Verses 17:47 and
25:8! Furthermore, how could the people who made the claim
be then "wicked",
if their claim was true?
Think about it: If you have a video recording of Osama Abdallah
(me) committing adultery with a woman, and you decide to expose me
on it, because you just got sick and tired of my lies and
hypocrisy. How on EARTH would that make you wicked?? If the
Prophet was indeed bewitched, then how could saying that he is
indeed bewitched make one wicked??
So now all Muslims are wicked??
Think about it. This makes every Muslim, who believes that the
Prophet was indeed bewitched, a wicked person! If
you believe in those Hadiths, then you have become a wicked person
according to Noble
Verses 17:47 and 25:8!
Here is the bottom line: What agrees with the Holy
Quran from the hadiths and also from the Bible and other scriptures
is closest to the Truth, but not absolute Truth like the Holy
Quran. And what disagrees with the Holy Quran belongs to the
garbage. You may use
the toilet too if you'd like, just as long as it doesn't have

Prophet used to invoke Allah, saying, "Allahumma ighfirli khati'ati
wa jahli wa israfi fi amri, wa ma anta a-'lamu bihi minni. Allahumma
ighfirli hazali wa jiddi wa khata'i wa amdi, wa kullu dhalika 'indi"

limit (boundaries) of righteousness in my deeds; and forgive
whatever You know better than I. O Allah! Forgive the wrong
I have done jokingly or
and forgive my accidental and intentional errors, all that is
present in me."(Sahih
Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 75, Number 408))
This is why those who say that the Prophet never spoke out of his
own desire, and that every word he spoke was an inspiration are all
in error. The following Noble Verses that they use only refer to
the Holy Quran's Revelations:
You companion has
neither erred, nor has he gone astray,
[053:003] Nor does he speak out of his own desire.
[053:004] It is nothing
but pure revelation revealed by God.

Those who say that Prophet Muhammad was a "Walking

inspiration are full of rubbish nonsense.

The Hadith of the fly is not a Mutawatir one. This can be
verified in this link. We have no way of knowing the original
words of the Prophet in this Hadith. But however, since we see great
scientific evidence, from the articles that I've quoted above, that seem to
go in almost perfect harmony with the Prophet's Hadith, then I believe that we
have strong evidence that suggests that the Prophet did indeed say this Hadith,
since the knowledge about the flies carrying antidotes or anti-bacterials or
anti-biotics was definitely not known to man, 1,500 years ago.
However, I am not sure about the dipping the fly in the drink part. I
am not sure if this is scientifically right or wrong. I mean, if the fly
is carrying malaria or some other disease on its body, then certainly dipping
the fly in the drink or food will bring the disease to it. And if we do this with multiple or many
infested flies, then we will have a big health problem. So, I
am not sure if the dipping part is scientifically accurate or not.
However, it is quite possible that this part was added by some latter narrator.
It is possible that the Prophet said something along this line:
"Allah Almighty Created the fly with many wonders in
it, one of which that it carries both the disease and the cure of that disease
under its wings."
The Prophet might've said it
after Allah Almighty Revealed the Miracle of the fly's digestive system
in the Noble Quran. And it is possible that some people thought that why
not dip the fly into our foods and drinks to get those cures. I am only
speculating here, but I hope that you see that since the Hadith is an Ahaad one,
then it is not possible to know what exactly the Prophet said,
Science has confirmed that the fly does indeed carry antidote, and it does
have useful functions that the human-body could greatly benefit from, such as
the soldiers who used flies' larvae to prevent bacterial infections.
The Hadiths above have a great deal of agreement with Science, and their
knowledge was not known to man, 1,500 years ago. But however, there seems
to be a questionable part about whether or not dipping a fly into the food could
actually bring harm more than good.
