Understanding The Hadiths of ‘Prophetic Medicine’
My brother was seen from New York emails and says that, how do we understand the Hadith?
in which some people are commanded to drink the urine of a camel for medicine? So how do we understand this Hadith, that drinking something that many of us would find nudges or not something palatable to use it as a medicine
and in fact, the question is broader than this, he says that his non Muslim colleague brought this up and he denied it. He said, there's no such Hadith. So the non Muslim colleague told them, it's in sahadi.
And he looked it up himself to make sure that it is there. And now he is confused what to do. So before I get to this issue of the prescription and the medicine and whatnot, so Pamela, this story that happened with our brother, it illustrates that number one, we need to be very careful about speaking about the shady eye without knowledge. If somebody comes in you haven't heard of it, don't just say this is not Islam.
Find out he negated something so no, this is not true. And the non Muslim colleague knows more than him and this issue said it's in your books I Buhari and he did not know it is there. So these days like Subhana Allah Allah tells us by the way, the Quran, Allah, Allah silica be in in the same hour Bussereau for other kulu lakukan animus, Allah, Allah tells us, be careful, don't speak that you do not have knowledge. What Oh, God, matassa, for instance, will carry Bahasa helado Maha Rahman. Don't say with your tongue. This is Hello, this is how I'm lying against Allah, don't just invent it off the top of your head, speak with knowledge? Or else if you don't know, say, you know, I haven't
heard of this Hadeeth let me find out for you simple End of story. If somebody comes with something new or exotic, that you don't know,
say, I'll find out and then come back to him. Right. So this person, unfortunately, Annie, our brother, he dug a hole for himself, then the other colleague of his look at this in your own book. Secondly, another thing we need to realize the world is now a very, very different place than it what it used to be. And many non Muslims who don't like our faith, are more aware of these, quote unquote, problematic issues than many of us are.
And this is why my philosophy is if you haven't listened to my lectures, you'll know this, but I will tell you explicitly, my philosophy is what is my philosophy,
tell it like it is. Don't sugarcoat, do not pretend something else. Actually, this should be our philosophy anyway. But unfortunately, sometimes people want to just hide or cover up, we don't have that luxury anymore. If you listen to my car, if you listen to other lectures, I am very blunt. And you will hear things from my talks that you will typically not hear from others. because of this reason. I would rather you hear these things from me. And I explained them to then a non Muslim colleague comes in, then you have no idea what to respond and you get confused. And maybe you will get confused what I'm seeing the next generation, they start doubting their EMR, this is what we are
seeing. Maybe this generation, we don't understand, and then we got it. But the next generation, if you don't explain to them beforehand, if you don't prepare them, all of these things add up together, and they end up getting doubts or even worse than this. So this is leading us to the broader topic. And by the way, I also have to point out here, you understand I get over 100 questions a week, I choose the questions that are the most beneficial to everybody. So those that are emailing me, I apologize, I don't have a personal secretary, I cannot answer all of them. Out of all the questions that come I choose these ones that are more useful for the Muslims of our time. So
this is a question I thought was very useful because it involves many issues, that some people might have questions about prophetic medicine, and the prescriptions given some of which, in our times, let's just say raise an eyebrow. This is one of them. Right? So the answer I'm going to give isn't just about camel urine, it is the broader issue of
that which is found in our traditions in the classical traditions in the Hadees that is of a medicinal nature, and what is our attitude towards that genre of literature. So with regards to this
issue of began with the Campbell urine because that's what the question came about. It is true. It is authentic. It is mentioned in many books of Hadith including Bukhari and Muslim, that a group of people came from a faraway tribe, and they pretended to convert. They thought they were calm. People thought they were Muslims, they pretend to convert, and they demanded hospitality. And when your new convert new Muslim, you're going to be given hospitality. And they said that they had fallen sick. And they mentioned the disease. We do not know the exact disease is probably some type of liver infection, some type of issue that we are trying we obviously the words used are not correlated to
modern science, but some type of issue of maybe liver infection spots Come on the skin, the summer becomes bloated other symptoms of this nature. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to them to go to a particular garden of the unsolved and to drink the urine of camels, and also to feed off the camels and take the milk of the camels. That was something that was known to cure this issue. Okay, so he sent them to this place, and he said, drink the camel of urines. Now, you're doing camels. And now these people, they flipped this left Islam, they murdered the shepherd, brutally, they stole the camels and they fled. So they became more dead. They stole the camels they fled. And the Sahaba the
unsolved then captured them, this was an early Medina. And the Prophet system severely severely punished them so much. So later scholars differ. Is it allowed to do that type of stuff or not? That's a whole separate issue altogether, has that been abrogated by the Hadoop because Hadoop came after this incident, the punishment was very severe, you can read about in the books and then because they also tortured the guy. So it's a tit for tat. So is it allowed to do that's another controversy, which we're not going to talk about today? Now, the issue comes how, why and how is the command be given to drink the urine of camels? first issue to understand the issue of nightjars and
taharah, of urine of an animal is classical issue of controversy, and the humbleness and Maliki's consider the urine, and even the deification of animals that you eat to be pothead not nudges in the first place. So tumor hubs even say, look, the headache doesn't raise any 50 problems anyway, it is thought ahead. It is not nudges. And they have their classical evidences, obviously, the sharp freeze and the hanafy say no urine and dedication is always nudges in every single animal. And that's their fifth key position, and the sharp freeze in Hana fees, they had to interpret this Hadeeth. in other ways, they said this is an exception. They said this is a one off, they said this
is a medicine that bhatura allows to take so they had their ways out of it. They would not allow anyone to take it anywhere from a fiscal perspective. But the other two bedrooms would allow it. And that is why To this day, people who live in that region who are following the humbling madhhab it is well known, they still do this practice, and they consider it to be useful. Now. That's the fifth issue about the taharah niche. So I want to talk about the broader issue. I want to segue into the issue of what is called plebe beneva We are the prophetic medicine. What do we do about this genre of ahaadeeth regarding cures, and medicinal practices, some of which are very obvious, some of
which, as we said, might raise eyebrows. Now. If we look at the last 14 centuries of our tradition, it is clear that the vast majority of odema and especially more head defin scholars have had teeth. They considered these traditions to be legislative shuttering from a law as originally intended to cure and guide us. And that is why almost every book of Hadith has a section called guitar book clip. A mumble Buhari has a book called guitar booktube in his sohei guitar book, the book of medicine and Muslim has a section and a Buddha Odin Timothy, and many classical scholars even wrote special treatise is a special book. So a moment as for honey died for 30 he wrote kuttabul flip the
Idina makdessi died 646 as a hobby 748 the most famous book ever written is Eminem am volume he has catapulted 751 his razor book, his guitar book, clip, a suit He has also a book on guitar booktube and many many books have been written, some have been translated into English as well. And obviously the understanding of this aroma is very clear. And that is that our profit system is sent by Allah azza wa jal everything he is saying is legislative, he is telling us these medicinal cures therefore they should be followed and therefore if you have this disease, you should drink camel urine. Okay, if you have this issue of the liver, whatever it is, you should also drink camel urine. And even
though pm says in his book, get up a play button
He has a book called The banaba the prophetic medicine which has been translated into English, even times he has in this book, the medicine of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, listen to these adjectives, motor yochanan pottery Yun Isla, he, it is certain it is without any doubt, and it is divine, Mateo 2013 of three and ilahi. And it is coming from way from a law. And it is coming from Michigan to Nebraska from the world of prophethood. And this is the vast majority opinion that's what it is hamdulillah
you should be aware that there has always been a dissenting voice as well. You should be aware that there have been Roma from the past that have made an exception in this case. And there is a slightly different paradigm as well. And there are some great odema who understood this genre in a different light. Amongst them is one of the greatest scholars of underdose I'll call the round who died 554 Hydra, and he was from undertows from actually a kotoba. And he wrote, perhaps the most powerful book in love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam which is entitled a shift if you feel hope and Mostafa, right, it is a mobarak book everybody loves this book. And nobody can accuse him of not
loving the Prophet system his book proves beginning to end and over the people as well who disagreed with this interpretation is the famous called the Abu Jabbar whom if you know who he is, then you know who he is. And also Eben halden, the author of one of the greatest history books and also they say the father of modern sociology, which is actually quite true To be honest, and the author of mocha Dima, mocha, Damien Holden, and also perhaps the greatest scholar that India has ever produced, who is he? Oh people of India. Very good Mashallah. See, as I say it, all of you say his name. And this is so much Baraka Chava Lila Adela, he died 1762 he wrote over 40 treatises in Arabic
and in Farsi, did he write an order or people of India? Did he write an order or people of India?
No, he didn't shower Leola did not write an order because why?
It wasn't a lingua franca at the time anyway, you guys should know your own history guys. Anyway, so shall he wrote the book whoa Jolla Hill believer, one of the most powerful books written and and by the way, somehow the shower Leola, what an amazing characters panel. All of the strands of Indian Islam look up to him. All of them, they consider him to be rejected. Different contradictory, mutually exclusive groups. They hate each other. They love Chava. Lula, isn't that amazing? Write that. But anyway, they open the ladies very quickly. I'll say it. All of these groups. They don't get along with each other. They can't pray behind one another. But all of them consider Chava Leola
to be their source and origin. Isn't that amazing? One of the reasons By the way, Chava Lila thought outside the box. He wasn't your standard cut and paste, which is a very common but he was the person who's critically thinking and I keep on saying this because not every critical thinker is negative. There's people that are changing for the better people that are shaking you to your core so that you think this is what some of these people like shot would do. Like I was even Tamia and others they are doing. Nonetheless. Chava Leola was a strong advocate of this as well, this other position, which I'm going to talk about, and that is that Clyburn nabawi is not something that is legislative
in weight. It's not something that we are commanded to follow islamically This is a different paradigm. And in our times, one of the most exhaustive people to write about this is someone who might consider to be a teacher, even though I never met him. But I studied from his books and he had a profound impact on me wasn't when I was a teenager, and his name is known to many of the atoms in this audience. Dr. Omar Suleiman Anushka Dr. Muslim Ashkar is a person who graduated from the very first batch of diversity of Medina 1962 when it was founded, he studied with Chef bin bash albani, Chef Shanti. He went on to do his PhD on a solid fill.
In the topic of the actions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a father nibi It is one of the most thorough dissertations on this topic. And in this dissertation, he discusses flippin dubawi
are these actions of the Prophet system are these commands, legislative or not? And he has passed away a lot more. I did not have the honor of meeting him but he had a profound impact on me as a teenager I read all of his books that I could get a hand of especially as sensitive that you are those who know know, he has a book of series on
An update and whatnot. And he wrote an article before he passed away very recently, I think 10 years ago or something, he wrote an article, very good article in Arabic, I strongly encourage you to read it, it's not in English, it is called clip beneva way between reality and whatnots, his article about the bad boy. And remember, this is a person whose teachers are been buzzing, Shanthi, and Albanian, all of these people he is a figure, an icon of the modern movement that you're well aware of, and a great Adam and allama, and a specialist and a solid, specialist, and all sorts of things. And he has an entire article about Fibonacci, and much of what I'm going to say is from that
article, and from other sources as well. But anyway, so let us quote some of these people, I'll call them in his book a Shiva, he says, these issues of the dounia
these issues of the world that the Prophet system is speaking about, it is possible that what the prophets Allah said him says, is not coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala is coming from human experience. And therefore, it is possible that based on this human experience, something could be correct, and something could be other than that, and this does not contradict the more common Nobunaga because he was not sent to teach those human sciences. This is not even Haldane says, a clip the medicine that is found in the prophetic literature. It is not from the wild at all. Rather, it is something that the Arabs would do. And this was the status quo when the Prophet sallallahu
Sallam came. And this is not something that the Sharia is coming with. And our Prophet sallallahu Sallam was, came to teach us the Shetty, he did not come to teach us sleep, nor to teach us any of the worldly sciences. And even though Hudson says the example of this is the issue of the pollination of the of the knuckle of the date palms, we'll talk about this example. And he goes and therefore all of these traditions of clip of medicine should be understood in light of the tradition of pollination of the dates. We'll talk about the politics of the days in a while. Sure. How will you align a schedule to Lyle balika, he says, lumen abso smila christmann. The knowledge of the
process is two categories two types. The first of them is that which is coming from tabula rasa Allah Allah azza wa jal is telling him to tell us and the second of them is not coming from Allah azza wa jal is coming from his own time and place. And in this second category, this is how to do the speaking in the second category is what our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in a nutshell, I am a human being and you know your dunya better than I do. So when I command you something of this Dean take it and when I command you something of the dunya for tomorrow, then we'll be more than dunya you know, your dunya better than I do this a shower Leola, from his,
which book, how Giotto lalibela. And he says, and from this is all of the medicine men who have played this category is
in his PhD doctor, almost a man of Chicago. He goes into a lot of detail with regards to
the evidences, the evidences of why this genre is not something that is legislative, from Allah subhana wa Tada. And that this is something that is coming from the culture and the people of the time and it is not binding on later generations to follow. And, of course, the most explicit. And this is where we begin with of these evidences and why there's only one question to do so very long question. The most explicit evidence is the incident in Bukhari and Muslim of the cross pollination of the date palm trees. Okay. It's very, very powerful, interesting, Hadith. What is the story? The story goes as follows. So we should all know our basic biology and anatomy I'm not a very good
there is a male part of the date palm and there's a female part Don't ask me to identify but I know there is. Okay. And like with all Polynesians, if you cross pollinate and help, it will help produce the fruits and the floor under under crops for the next year. Okay. So the unsought of Medina would physically themselves cross pollinate. Okay. And by the way, farmers to this day, they have mechanisms to pollinate to their own crops it helps, right, so the unsoldered would do the pollination from the male to the female directly on their own, they would physically do that, and the Profit System passed by one day
He said, Why don't you leave this? Why are you doing it? Let it be natural. Why are you doing this? They he advised me suggested to them to not pollinate. So that year, none of them physically and manually did the pollination was going to happen. The crops didn't come. So they came back to the Profit System. There were no crops. And they said, Yeah, rasulillah like you said, we didn't do it. And we don't have any crops. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, in a nutshell, I'm a human being. So when I command you something of your deen follow it, and what I command you something of your dunya then until our lm ob dunya.
Okay, this hadith is where Bosnian Muslim, it is very explicit, very authentic. of the evidences as well, is the incident of the Battle of butter,
where the profitsystem camped at the Battle of butter, and had been is have mentioned that and hubbub their mother came to the Prophet system and said Yara Sula law, or ATIA hadn't mentioned this place that you kept a man Xenon and zelicah. Hola. Did Allah tell you to camp here? Or is it How to Win Makita? Is it tactics of war? Now, by the way, and this is a very profound point, hubbub of Sahabi.
Look at the question he's asking. In his mind, there's two categories of actions coming from the prophet SAW said
he doesn't have any problem with that. In his mind, he can categorize the actions very clearly. But he doesn't know which one it is. Yasuda law, is this place that you're camping, a laws command? Or is it a tactic of war that you think is best? And the problem is that it's a tactic of war? Who Bob said, even in that case, I suggest you proceed onwards until the well is behind us. And we are between them and the water. They will not. And so he went on. And he told us and that's exactly what the Profit System did.
That's exactly what the Profit System did. Now, what is the show? The Profit System in NEMA, Anna Bashar and his camping that he thought is a good location. But Whoa, Bob is the one who has the arts of war, mastered more, that's what he has done his life. So he does no go over there. And have the evidences as well that Dr. Ashkar brings is the Hadith also sahadi. Listen to this hadith is a very simple and interesting get it's obvious. Or Mr. lemma says that the prophet SAW said him said
in a short, notice the same phrase he keeps on reminding people, I'm a human being, I'm a human being, I'm a human being in Nima and a Bashar, I am a human being. And you take me as a judge when you come to me. And sometimes one of you might be better at arguing the case than the other. So I'm convinced by the argument, and I side with the vector arguing for
so let that person know that if the Hulk is not on his side, and I side with him, then my verdict is essentially giving him cutting him a piece of john, meaning what
an invalid argument is not going to make the outcome. Or the heck about it. You get the point here. Do you have a good lawyer? Right? gets you off on a technicality. You are not often the court of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, what is the evidence over here? Where's the evidence? The Prophet system is saying, maybe one of you will convince me because of what?
Huh? good arguments. And he begins by saying in the mind of Bashar, I don't know in my life, I don't know who is the one you are coming to me, both of you, perhaps one of you has a better tone than the other. And so I'm persuaded by him. And so I say, Oh, this belongs to him, but it doesn't. And you know, it doesn't belong to you. So he is saying, even if I say it, Allah will not forgive you.
This is what he's saying. That's that. But the point is, he begins with your arguments or you understand the humanity of the mention over here, as well. And of course, this is applied very clearly also in sahadi, when the husband and wife accused Jani, the Mallanna take place that the husband accused his wife of Xena, the famous case that took place or whether because of which Allah revealed in the Quran, the verses of Leon and the woman became pregnant and the man said, This is not my child, right the famous incident that happened in this era and
the two of them did the for the for liner to low volume electronica they've been and then the fifth one they did they sorry, the four of them was I am telling you this
Truth. And then the fifth one is whoever is lying Allah's land is going to be on them. And they both did it. And the Prophet system said, Allah knows one of you two is lying, you both can be correct. And it was the context is very clear that she's like, what did our Prophet system say?
If I could have executed the head on anyone without evidence, it would be this lady.
But did he know?
Like it's almost certain But hey, I have to judge by outer so that is also applied over there. And the source of knowledge of medicine is actually very explicit. It's in the head Ethan was that Mr. Mohammed that roadworthiness Zubair used to say to our issue or once he said to our issue remember openness debate is our issue is what nephew right or wrong is debate is is nephew? Because
as my son, right, so Hylas son, so he would say to Arusha Yeah, Omar, Dear Mother, I am not surprised that you're so intelligent because you are the wife of the processor and the daughter of Abu Bakar. And I'm not surprised that you're knowledgeable of poetry and of history because of your father. But I am surprised. Where did you get your knowledge of medicine from? This is? or asking his aunt? Look, if you're smart, you know many things history. Where did you learn medicine? I'm surprised this hadith is a Muslim by Mohammed Isha said, or Ottawa.
People would come
from the Arabs delegations, from all over Arabia, to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, they would come from every area. And
I would ask them about the herbs about the herbal medicine. And I would then prescribe to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam what I learned
so Isha is a smart lady, obviously, it'll be a lot of wine her, she's precocious, she's learning. But what's the source of her knowledge?
The tangible items. She's asking all the ladies coming from all over Arabia. And this is of course, herbal medicine, which is of course fine. But in the end of the day, where is it coming from? The people's experience, it is coming from people's experience. And
another evidence which is very explicit as well, and this is actually one of the most explicit pay attention to this one is very clear.
Hadeeth is in Bahati as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I was about to forbid you to do raela or Rila
what is later or Lila? It is to engage with intercourse in your with your wife, while your wife is breastfeeding. So during that one year, right to impregnate, or even to engage in intercourse, this is a term in Arabic called Layla. And there was a legend or rumor that if you do this, the milk will spoil.
The milk that is being fed to the child will spoil. And so it should not be done. So the Prophet system said, I was about to forbid you from intimacy with your wives for this entire period when they're breastfeeding.
But then, I observed the Romans and Persians and that they don't have this they practice intercourse during this timeframe and it does not harm the child. So therefore, go ahead.
Now this is as explicit as you can get.
This is in Bukhari and Muslim, right? Where is the source of the Juba coming from?
the people around right and Allah azza wa jal delegated to our Prophet system, that authority that he has the right to make sure they are. And if he had said it, it would have become Sharia.
hamdulillah he didn't. But if he had said it, how Rahman halaal it becomes Sharia because that would have been religion then. But what is the source of this medicine or knowledge he is observing in this regard. And the point is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did many things because of the time and place that he lived in based on the knowledge available to him, for example, his military tactics, the equipment that he used, for example, the script of the Arabic even though he didn't write it, but he dictated the Koran the Quran is being written, somebody could argue that script should be binding because that's how the profit has made a copy of the script. Nobody does that
anymore. If you try to read that script, you will not be able to read it. How did he run the government he did not have departments he did not have data when it is well known.
Who was the first person to make the while we normally talk about the low one, the first person to make Ministry of war Ministry of Zika. He didn't have ministries, the Profit System. He didn't run the government. That way. Everyone will have Bob came in, change it all. Then the oma years came, by the way, and the will may it took the Roman system completely hook line and sinker. And they adopted it. And then abdul-malik abdomen, one came and he aerobicized it for around 80 years, the people who ran the government, the bureaucrats were Roman Christians. They were Latin, the Muslim Ummah was run in Latin for around 80 years, by the way, because the Muslims were more open minded than miniart.
But that's a different world ticket anyway. So point is that
I've done many kebun my one came the first time and he aerobicized the devil when that's not my talk today, why am I going there?
The Prophet system did not have departments. He did not have Darwin later. Sahaba understood. So what he did is we did it a different way. The point is, those are a llama, called the Al even Haldane doctrine was what they're saying. But nabawi is the same genre as how to run a government, the script of the Arabic language, the things that the architecture of the time, it's not something that is legislative and binding upon later generations. Now, Dr. Chicana makes an exception, which I agree with, he said only if
the Profit System explicitly links it to Allah subhanho wa Taala, then yes, it become Sharia, for example, honey, isn't a haoran it is a large xojo making it chief up. If it's mentioned that there she fought from divine, then that's a separate issue altogether. Otherwise, these other prescriptions that are found. And it's not just the hadith of urine, but that's the probably the most shocking to our sensibilities, but there's a lot of these maybe like two dozen of them. These things are not things that need to be necessarily followed. That's the the argument of the other group. Now, by the way, we're not talking about spiritual remedies. Spiritual remedies are obviously
from the Quran and Sunnah. For example, Rukia that's something spiritual, that's not physical. What's another example of a spiritual remedy? You can give me spiritual remedy?
That would be physical, according to the other group, spiritual remedy.
multiple sockets, right? Treat your sick by giving sadaqa
giving soda? Is this a physical cure? No, this is spiritual. We're not talking about that. Of course, that's something from the *tier. Right. So we're not talking about the spiritual cures, we're talking about the physical cures, if they are not linked with Allah xojo directly, if Allah is not telling us that this is from the Sharia or something, then it is not something that is necessarily binding. And this is the other opinion. Now, I want to also point out here, that this obviously, obviously,
is a problematic
emotional area, because some people might feel that the status of new boo is being impinged. And that's why I'll call the reorg. himself said this doesn't harm common double. And even Haldol says the same, because even when they're writing it, they're worried. What will the people think about this issue? Are they going to them? And here we get to this interesting point. Again, if you listen to my theater, I mentioned this many times. The farther you go from the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, the easier it is to
make it slightly more bigger or exaggerated. And that actually was the closer you get to his timeframe. The Sahaba, for example, didn't have any problem asking him point blank. He also loves this from you from Allah. I mean, look at that frankness.
Will anybody say the Sahaba did respect the process and their respect was based upon knowledge, frankly, much of our respect is based upon emotion, not knowledge. Right? And so let me give you a simple example we all understand. Do you think any Sahabi ever claimed that the processor knows ml hype?
No. Do you think any tablet a tablet tablet ever claimed that the processor is made out of noodle? ilahi do you think any scholar in the first 300 years ever said that the process of is
the Arabs don't know I'm talking about but this is a group these others know about Okay. Now, when did these notions come in the oma
much later? Duracell? What I'm trying to say here.
Nobody who interacted with the profit system could ever say he knows.
This can only come 500 1000 years later when the generations have gone so far. That
The image you have of the person is no longer the person himself. Then you can have groups, entire fiddle cars, whose entire leader is based upon a persona who never actually existed.
He's not even human. He never has a shadow. He didn't eat and drink, he floated on the air. He never used the restroom. If you read Bahati, every one of these is gone out the window, every one of these things, right? But when did these notions arise? 1000 years, actually 1200 years later. My point is, it's easier for us to look at them, frankly, even in our own trend. Even amongst us, we have to be very clear. Allah sent the Profit System for Shetty for teaching us Islam, not for teaching us biology, physics, chemistry, architecture, engineering.
And the Profit System is very clear. You know, your dunya better than I do. Right. And therefore,
we conclude by saying, If you wish to follow the majority position, hamdulillah no problem. Good for you. Excellent. And I have no problem with that.
But don't pick and choose because that's not fair.
Because that's what you end up doing. To be honest, anybody who does that will not be drinking Campbell urine. normally take in a few things and leave the rest of them. But if you want to do that, I have no problem. But you see where my sympathies lie. And
as I endorsed the other position, Dr. Emerson, and others, we have to be cautious here. First and foremost,
we should never, ever make fun of anybody who does those things. Why? Because our Profit System commanded and we have to be very careful, don't make a mockery of it. mocking anything like this, potentially is mocking the messenger, so they sell them. And that is something no Muslim can ever do. Number two, we have to be very, very explicit, that there's nothing wrong with these practices, even if it's not necessarily the best practices, for example, called the EOD would say I'm putting words into his mouth. Okay, let me say this.
For that time in place, camel urine was the best medicine, no problem to say that. But is camel urine the best medicine for liver of the disease now? No, there's nothing wrong 1400 years ago in Arabia in that society for that disease that was the best day new, and maybe it was more effective than nothing. Okay. But is it something that is legislative upon us that we must do in our times? No. So there's nothing wrong, we don't criticize. And we also say there's no battle. It was what it was for that time and place. Point number three.
We have to be very explicit here as well. There are many groups out there who use portions of what I've said, to try to negate the sun overall.
And we have to say no, the Sunnah is a part of Islam. There is no Islam without Sunnah. obedience to the messenger is obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is why he was sent. We are not going to go down the route of those groups who don't carry Hadith and No, not at all. And that's one of the reasons why this is such an awkward topic. Because when you open this door, then the other group becomes happy. We say no, this isn't for you.
Allah sent his research so listen, to be followed, but to be followed in what matters of Sharia, of Islam of Salah of Zakah of elemental hype of al Qaeda of theology, not in these areas of human things. So we have to be very careful because the other group uses these pollen cross pollination and says, oh, therefore, marriage and divorce nikka inheritance we can all No, no, no, these are Islam. And we're not going to go to that level. Now. Before I conclude, somebody can say
what if somebody out of pure love wants to follow what the prophet says Adam told us to do? Forget reason. Forget logic. Just love. I want to follow the Prophet ism said it and did it I want to do it. We say to this, I'll call them out even Haldane they have all mentioned this explicitly. Ibn khaldoun says, if somebody follows the beneva way, from the attitude of tabarrok, from pure Eman,
then there is no question that that love will bring blessing from Allah subhana wa Tada. That's a separate issue altogether. So the question is not love. The question is is camel yours?
I'm going to cure your cancer or your or your infection. Somebody does it out of love. Allah will reward in a matter of minutes. But did this aspect want to be or necessarily be applied? That's what we say, No, it doesn't happen. Even Hajin himself said, all that has been narrated from the Sunnah with regards to these issues. If somebody does it with silk, that the Prophet system said to do it, then Allah Xhosa, his blessings will come. In other words, there's an element of Tabarak not necessarily an element of, of medicine over here. And therefore we conclude by saying, Look, there have always been these two positions. I quoted you scholars from 1000 years ago, and modern scholars
as well. And if you wish to follow the majority and hamdulillah Hamdulillah, no problem. Nonetheless, if some people are troubled by a genre of Hadith that
we just don't understand, they don't match up with anything that we know. In fact, sometimes they contradict. So I'll be honest with you, the UN World Health Organization, what not? They have actually warned against drinking Campbell urine, they have said it spreads disease. And they have you know, that would the Mrs. You know, the happened the scare that happened, right? That Mrs. The, the virus that happened a few years ago, drinking camel urine actually spread this. And so that was one of the reasons it was found in some of these tribes as well. Right. Now, obviously, this was very sensitive, because some of the scholars thought this is an insult to our Prophet system, who is
the UN did tell us not to do it, when the process of did it when he told us Oh, sorry, when the process and told the people to do it, right. So they became a matter of religion. And so it does become very emotional here. How do you reconcile, and the response is no, the process of did not legislatively tell us to do this, it is not a part of our shedding. True, we don't make fun of it true. It's valid for its time in place, but it's not something this and all of these genres that basically mentioned medicine, in my humble opinion, it was the best knowledge that they had at the time, and it was fine for them. But it's not something that we need to copy and paste and replicate
in our times. And if something is found, that really does not any, you know, make any medical sense and study after study shows, you know, obviously studies have been done in this regard and there is no tangible value in much of this. You understand what I'm talking about this type is not you cannot prove it in a blind study. By and large, most of this stuff, therefore, and Allah knows best we should not have any problems in saying this is from the saying of the Prophet system. He himself told us about this. When I come to you with the deen follow it and when they come to you with the dunya What did he say? unto my lamb will be moody to nia. This is what he himself said well after
that one hamdulillah but I mean, so the law was settled. While he was savage Manish Allah will continue next week that I'm reading Welcome to labor.
