1- The Hadith (narration) by the Prophet:
First let us look at the Sayings (Hadiths) of our beloved Prophet that dealt with camel urine:
Narrated Abu Qilaba: "Anas said, "Some people of 'Ukl or 'Uraina tribe came to Medina and its climate did not suit them. So the Prophet ordered them to go to the herd of (Milch) camels and to drink their milk and urine (as a medicine). So they went as directed and after they became healthy, they killed the shepherd of the Prophet and drove away all the camels. The news reached the Prophet early in the morning and he sent (men) in their pursuit and they were captured and brought at noon. He then ordered to cut their hands and feet (and it was done), and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron, They were put in 'Al-Harra' and when they asked for water, no water was given to them." Abu Qilaba said, "Those people committed theft and murder, became infidels after embracing Islam and fought against Allah and His Apostle . (Sahih Bukhari, Ablutions (Wudu'), Volume 1, Book 4, Number 234)"
Cutting the hands and feet of the enemy in the Bible:
Before we proceed, it is important to know that the Bible's Prophets too did similar punishment (cutting hands and feet of the enemy):
2 Samuel 4

Refutation to the preposterous LIES of Jochen Katz about his Bible not containing inhumane murders from its Prophets!
2- The scientific facts:
A comment from sister Nicole Woods, an American young sister who embraced Islam; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with her: "I just wanted to share the news with you that in products such as tylenol or asparine (not sure which but u can check the labels), there is an ingredient called PREMARIN. Biology majors here tell me that the name stands for PREgnant MARe urIN. Of course, no one would put unprocessed urine into medication... i'm sure it's boiled or pasteurized or something. But the ingredient is used very much in the way the prophet (peace be upon him) suggested using camel urine.. such as for headaches. oh, well, i'm sure to you it sounds disgusting... think of it next time u reach for tylenol or asparine *wink*"
Further from a Muslimah, who works in the Medical field as a Mammographer; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with her: "Estrogen product called PREMARIN is given to postmenopausal Women. This PREMARIN is extracted from HORSE URINE. The Estrogen product is hormones given to women."
Further from brother Abu Adam on my Message Board; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him:
"Here is another miracle in the Hadeeth. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in a hadeeth told someone to drink camel's urine as a medical treatment.
Of course the ignorant Christians love to mock this hadeeth. Even I, thought this was a strange hadeeth. But look, in America, they have been driking horse urine for a long time as a cure.
Just like the Quran says, 41:53: "Soon will We show them our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth), and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord doth witness all things?"
go to www.premarin.org for the following. (also see premarin.com)
Premarin® stands for Pregnant Mares' Urine (PREgnant MARes' urINe)
Premarin (including Prempro, Premphase, Prempac, and Premelle) is a drug made up of conjugated estrogens obtained from the urine of pregnant mares -- put out in many forms (pills, creams, injections, patches, vaginal rings) and is used to reduce the symptoms of menopause in women or women who have had a hysterectomy. It is also prescribed to nearly eliminate the risk of osteoporosis (the brittling of bones) and reduce the chance of heart disease in women over 50."
Further from brother Abdul Hafiz; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.
The Prophet prescribing Camel Urine as medicine:
First of all, let us clarify the reason and story behind the prescription. Some people had become very ill at the time of the prophet, and were suffering from an unknown illness. Their bellies had swollen and they were not in a fit state. Hence, the prophet said to them, that they would find a cure in the milk and urine of a camel and so he sent them out to an area where camels were grazing. These men went to this area and drank the milk and urine. Sure enough, just like the Prophet said, they were cured and became fit and healthy.
However, at the same time, evil thoughts entered their minds and they decided they wanted the camels for themselves. They therefore killed the owner, and made off with the camels. When news of the murder reached the prophet, he sent an envoy to capture the men, and when they were captured and brought before the prophet, capital punishment was meted out to them.
Having read this story, what do we conclude from it? The answering islam team would have us believe that this Hadith means that drinking camel urine is permissible in Islam. This is INCORRECT. The real meaning of this Hadith is that if a person needs to consume an impure and impermissible substance as a cure for an illness, and no other reasonable alternative is available, then it is permissible. In all other circumstances, camel urine is prohibited.

|Camel Urine as Medicine:|
following was sent to me by a Muslim brother
who wished for his name to remain anonymous.
May Allah Almighty always be pleased with
A new study and research on camel urine and milk showed new medical discoveries:
Anti-diabetic action of camel milk :
Modern medicine has taken a very clear stand when it accepts that the camel is free from foot and mouth viruses as a result of its immune systems. Camel milk benefits can be related in part to the unique composition of which is rich in insulin, insulin-like proteins, minerals, immunoglobulins and trace elements with anti-inflammatory properties. Camel insulin possesses unique features that make it different from human and other animal insulin and more effective when orally administered. Camel insulin, unlike the insulin contained within other animal and human milks, is contained within micelles and is thus protected from digestion and proteolysis in the upper gastrointestinal tract. Camel insulin contains nanoparticles that facilitate its absorption and easy passing into the blood stream. An added advantage of camel milk consumption by diabetic patients was discovered in recent renal functional and genetic studies in diabetic animals showing that camel milk has renal protection actions that prevent the renal damage associated with diabetes, as it attenuates the biochemical and morphological features of diabetic nephropathy in these diabetic animals.
The chemical composition and nutritional quality of camel milk was studied. Results showed 11.7% total solids, 3.0% protein, 3.6% fat, 0.8% ash, 4.4% lactose, 0.13% acidity and a pH of 6.5. It contains low level of cholesterol and sugar and is rich in the levels of Na, K, Zn, Fe, Cu, Mn, niacin as well as vitamin C. Camel milk contains low level of protein and high concentration of insulin, and could be safely taken by people who have high sensitivity to lactose and have immune deficiency.
Anti-cancer action of camel urine :
Research has shown that camel urine had stopped the growth of tumour cells implanted into experimental animals and the growth of malignant cell lines including hepatocellular carcinoma (HEPG2), colon carcinoma (HCT 116), human glioma (U251) cells, lung cancer cells and leukaemic cells. It was suggested that this anti-cancer action could be both a direct cell cytotoxicity and cutting blood supply to tumour cells, i.e., anti-angiogenic action. A series of recent experiments demonstrated that both camel urine and milk, each on its own, inhibited inflammatory angiogenesis in the murine sponge implant angiogenesis model. Further support for the anti-cancer action of camel urine causes significant inhibition of the expression of the gene encoding carcinogen-activating enzyme at the MRNA (Messenger Ribonucleic Acid) level in cancerous liver cells. Camel milk and urine possess potent cardiovascular actions. In separate in vitro experiments, it was shown that camel urine has potent platelet blocking properties similar to the actions of the widely used anti-platelet drugs, aspirin and clopidogrel.
On the basis of present investigations camel urine also proved to be an antimicrobial activity natural material and satisfactory for using as a medicinal treatment. It can also be used for treatment of mycological infections, such as human diseases caused by Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger, or those bacterial illnesses induced by Staphlococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae. Moreover, camel urine was also reported to be used as a treatment for diarrhea.
Food allergies and other therapeutic benefits of camel milk:
A group of children with severe food (mainly milk) allergies who failed to respond to all modern therapies recovered fully after the daily administration of camel milk.
Macroscopic and Microscopic observations had
proved the role of camel urine on curing
liver and internal organ disorders. A study
on infected and untreated calves which
suffered from congested and dark livers,
very flabby hearts, haemorrhagic kidneys and
intestines. The calves that were treated
with early morning camel urine (4 mllkg
bodyweight) showed normal size and colour of
the liver with lessened hardness on cut. The
lung was slightly edematous. Kidney was
normal in size and pale, the heart slightly
Chronic hepatitis and hepatitis C infection:
The early observations of Sharmanov et al.,
in 1982 were the first to suggest an
anti-viral action of camel milk when they
found that camel’s milk was more effective
than mare’s milk in improving and
normalizing the clinical and biochemical
status of patients with chronic active
hepatitis. Later observations using camel
urine therapy in patients with Bilharzial
liver disease supported this finding, as
significant improvement was noted in the
clinical condition of these patients with
marked resolution of the ascites and morpho-logical
changes of the cirrhotic liver.
Global access to Camel milk :
In 2013 when the European Community licensed
the importation of camel milk from the
United Arab Emirates (UAE). The main and
perhaps only current supplier of camel milk
is the Dubai-based Emirates Industry for
Camel Milk and Products (EICMP), which
manufactures its trademark camel milk,
Camelicious, which is now on sale in
numerous European countries, particularly
The Netherlands, Denmark and England. As the
milk is considered nutricious. Another
chocolate manufacturer, Al Nassma, is
selling its camel milk chocolate in London’s
world-famous upscale department store
Criticism against the use of camel urine has
been subject to much mockery and slander
among others of various beliefs. Critics
argument is that camel urine has potential
side-effects, however; this argument is
logically invalid, as it does not take into
account the harsh environment of the nomadic
desert nor the accessible medical equipment.
Many drugs can be physically and emotionally
debilitating, several studies have shown
that Anti-biotics are prone to cause tendon
ruptures, muscular tendinitis, liver
failure, negative effects to the central
nervous system, intestine infections,
peripheral neuropathy, serious heart rhythm
changes, headaches and joint problems.
Last Word :
In the light of all the evidence provided, the topic of Camel urine mixed with Camel milk as a remedy will still be subject of foolish ridicule. However; they are only fooling themselves.
“Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?”. (Surah Al Ghashiya-Chapter 88, Verse 17)
3- What about the Bible's cruelty and the slaughtering of suckling infants?
We must first of all know that the entire Bible is corrupted and unreliable and is mostly filled with man-made laws and corruption! GOD Almighty Said: "`How can you say, "We [the Jews] are wise, for we have the law of the LORD," when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?' (From the NIV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"
The Revised Standard Version makes it even clearer: "How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie. (From the RSV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"
In either translation, we clearly see that the Jews had so much corrupted the Bible with their man-made cultural laws, that they had turned the Bible into a lie!
See Also Deuteronomy 31:25-29 where Moses peace be upon him predicted the corruption/tampering of the Law (Bible) after his death.
The Book of Moses predicted that the Law (Bible) will get corrupted. The Book of Jeremiah which came approximately 826 years after did indeed confirm this corruption. There are several Verses in the Bible that seem to be very cruel. Let us look at few of them:
1 Samuel 15:2-4
2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt.
3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
4 And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah.
Let us look at Numbers 31:17 "Now kill all the boys [innocent kids]. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man."
Also, let us look at Numbers 31:35-40 "[From the captives of war] 32,000 women who had never slept with a man.......of which the tribute for the LORD was 32 [among them were virgin girls]."
Why kill the innocent children? Why kill all of the non-virgin women? Back then, it was only men who fought men in wars. Women rarely fought in battle fields. So what crime did the innocent children and the non-virgin women do?
This verse was sent to me by Yusif 65; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him: "But after they had moved it, the LORD's hand was against that city, throwing it into a great panic. He afflicted the people of the city, both young and old, with an outbreak of tumors. (From the NIV Bible, 1 Samuel 5:9)"
"tumors" was defined as "with tumors in the groin." This is verified at this link.
Why torture the enemies by destroying their groins?
I wonder how the hypocrites of the Christian "Answering Islam" team would reply to these verses from their x-rated pornographic Bible.
Did you also know that fathers are allowed to insert their fingers into their daughters' vaginas in the porn-full bible?
My Question: My question to those hypocrites is, using your own standards, does this also make your porn-full bible an "invalid" book?
We are not even sure that the books of "Numbers" and "1 Samuel" are GOD's Divine Words. Let us look at what the NIV Bible's Theologians had to say about them:
The Book of Numbers:
"It is not necessary, however, to claim that Numbers came from Moses' hand complete and in final form. Portions of the book were probably added by scribes or editors from later periods of Israel's history. For example, the protestation of the humility of Moses (12:3) would hardly be convincing if it came from his own mouth. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 183)"
So in reality, we don't know who were all the authors who wrote the book of Numbers. How is it possible then to call the book of Numbers the True Living Revelations of GOD Almighty if the book had been tampered with by the man-made laws of the scribes?
As you clearly saw in Jeremiah 8:8 in the introduction above, GOD Almighty condemned the laws of the scribes and accused them for turning the Bible into a lie.
The books of 1 and 2 Samuel:
"Many questions have arisen pertaining to the literary character, authorship and date of 1,2 Samuel."
"Who the author was cannot be known with certainty since the book itself gives no indication of his identity."
(From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 368).
Again, unknown books with unknown authors had been inserted into the Bible and are now considered GOD's Revelations. What a joke! Since when do we consider man-made stories and narrations as GOD's Revelations?
