1. Narrated by Hazrat Anas رضي الله عنه that Nabi ﷺ advised some people from Urainah to use camel's milk (اللبن) & its urine for dharibah (an abnormal fluid collection in abdomen) (ascities).
[Tirmizi: 1845; Book. 25, Hadees. 61; English vol. 3; Book. 23, Hadees. 1845]
(It is a part of a long Hadees).
1. The whole abdomen is explain as pond in the Hadees; actually whatever we eat get digested in the intestines, & whole intestine has portal vein, called as portal system, through these veins the digested material is carried to liver, where the material is metabolized. If these veins carry healthy digested material to liver than health result else disease occurs.
Honey offers incredible antiseptic, antioxidant & immune boosting properties for our body & health. It not only fights infection & helps tissue healing but also helps reduce inflammation & is often used for treating digestive problems such as Indigestion, stomach ulcers & gastroenteritis.
Researchers around the world are discovering new & exciting medical benefits of honey & other healing items produced in the hive such as propolis, royal jelly & bee pollen.
Honey is abluent & an aperient. It contains detergent & tonic properties that cleanse the arteries & bowels from impurities. It opens obstructions of the liver, kidney & bladder. It is also a general preservative & it helps to preserve the potency of other natural medicinal remedies. Honey also helps to break up excess moisture in the bowels, such as in diarrhea. Honey is superior to sugar in many respects & it is less sweet but stronger & if taken excessively it can be harmful to the bile, unless it is mixed with vinegar. Honey is good for the aged; it is a cough suppressant & is used in medicine to treat phlegm in the stomach & to soften the general constitution of the body. Honey is also a curative for a depraved appetite & when taken as a drink mixed with hot water & a pomace made from sweet roses, it helps the treatment of rabies & is a safeguard from further infections.
Hazrat Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه says that Rasoolullah ﷺ said that any person who licks Honey (عسل) (Asal) in morning at least for 3 (ثلاث) days every month will not suffer from any Balah (البلاء) (illness) in that month (in which honey is taken).
[Ibn Majah: 3576; Book. 31; English vol. 4; Book. 31, Hadees. 3450]
Honey is also used as detoxicant for drug users & as an antitoxin to treat accidental eating of poisonous plants of the nightshade family (Hyoscymus Niger), or wild fungus, among others. When taken as a drink mixed with hot water only, it helps as a remedy for dog bites. As a preservative, honey can be used to preserve meat for up to three months & is used in pickling cucumbers, squash, eggplant & various kinds of fruits for up to six months. Known as "the trustworthy preservative", honey was also used as a principle ingredient in embalming the dead.
The study on pollens & spores in raw honey (melissopalynology) can determine floral sources of honey. Because bees carry an electrostatic charge & can attract other particles from nature.
Modern medicine has only recently discovered the fact that honey is a remedy to many diseases. Traditional uses of honey have included honey mixed with lemon for sore throats. Honey coats the throat & reduces throat irritation. Research shows that honey blocks growth of oral bacteria.
Honey has also been used for stomach pains & problems. Modern research shows that honey is effective when used in the treatment of gastric or peptic (stomach) ulcers. Research has also revealed that honey is effective in the treatment of various wounds & infections because of its antimicrobial (anti-bacterial, antiviral & antifungal) properties.
Researchers are not absolutely sure why honey heals but they are learning new things about honey every day. As mentioned in the beginning, honey contains a variety of sugars & minerals. Honey is also considered an antioxidant. This means it allows the blood to circulate better & provide more oxygen to areas of the body such as the brain.
Honey can also be used externally to promote healing when applied to wounds, even post-operative wounds. Honey has also been effective in its use to treat burns. It has even been shown to be low in calories & useful as a sweetener for diabetics, people with heart disease or those overweight.
Scientists have found the following items during the chemical synthesis of barley- albuminoids, starch, fat, fiber, ash & water. Chemical composition shows that it contains the fat in the form of Leucosine Gluten Albumen, the compound of Nitrogen as palmatic Acid, Salicylic Acid & Phosphoric Acid. Besides, it contains Hypoxanthens. British Pharmacopoeia recommends Malt extract for internal use. It contains 4 % of protein, the enzymes for digestion of carbohydrates & vitamins. Some scientists say that Arsenic is present in barley grain.
Gastrointestinal effects: Germinated Barley Foodstuff (GBF) is derived from the aleurone & scutellum fractions of germinated barley. GBF appears to induce proliferation of intestinal epithelial cells & facilitate defecation through bacterial production of short chain fatty acids, especially butyrate. GBF is believed to facilitate epithelial repair & suppress epithelial NFkB-DNA binding activity through butyrate (by the micro flora bifid bacterium & eubacterium). GBF has been associated with increased growth of these micro floras in the intestinal tract & varying amounts of total tocopherols & tocotrienols (49.9-67.6mg/kg) & vitamin E content (vitamin E equivalent; 15.7-20.1mg/kg). Barley products compose of different amylose-amylopectin ratios (7-44% amylose) have been reported to lower metabolic responses.
Camel’s urine is efficacious in the treatment of skin diseases such as ringworm, tinea & abscesses, sores that may appear on the body & hair & dry & wet ulcers. Camel’s urine brings the secondary benefits of making the hair lustrous & thick & removing dandruff from the scalp. Camel’s milk is also beneficial in treating hepatitis, even if it has reached an advanced stage where medicine is unable to treat it. End quote.
In the Al-Jazeerah Al-Sa’oodiyyah newspaper (issue no. 10132, Rabee’ Al-Awwal 1421 AH) there is a quotation from the book Al-Ibn Asraar wa i’jaaz (The camel: secrets & wonders) by Darmaan Ibn ‘Abd Al-‘Azeez Aal Darmaan & Sanad Ibn Mutlaq Al-Subay’i:
As for camel’s urine, the book suggests that it has numerous uses which are beneficial for man. This is indicated by the Prophetic texts & confirmed by modern science. Scientific experiments have proven that camel’s urine has a lethal effect on the germs that cause many diseases.
Among the uses of camel’s urine, many women use it to wash their hair, to make it longer & to make it lighter & more lustrous. Camel’s urine is also efficacious in the treatment of swelling of the liver & other diseases such as abscesses, sores that appear on the body & toothache & for washing eyes. End quote.
Prof. Dr. ‘Abd Al-Fattaah Mahmoud Idrees says: With regard to the benefits of camel’s urine in treating disease, Ibn Seena said in his book “Qanoon”, The most beneficial of urine is the urine of the Bedouin camels known as Najeeb. Camel’s urine is beneficial in treating Al-Hazaaz & it was said that Al-Hazaaz is a pain in the heart caused by anger & so on. Camel’s urine, especially the urine of a young she-camel – is used as a cleansing substance to wash wounds & sores, to make the hair grow, to strengthen & thicken them & to prevent falling out & it is used to treat diseases of the scalp & dandruff. In a Master’s thesis by an engineer in applied chemistry, Muhammad Awhaaj Muhammad, that was submitted to the faculty of applied chemistry in the Al-Jazeerah university in Sudan & approved by the Dean of science & postgraduate studies in the university in November 1998 CE, entitled A Study of the Chemical Composition & Some Medical Uses of the Urine of Arabian Camels, Muhammad Awhaaj says:
Laboratory tests indicate that camel’s urine contains high levels of potassium, albuminous proteins & small amounts of uric acid, sodium & creatine.
In this study, he explained that what prompted him to study the medicinal properties of camel’s urine was what he had seen of some tribesmen drinking this urine whenever they suffered digestion problems. He sought the help of some doctors in studying camel’s urine. They brought a number of patients & prescribed this urine for them, for a period of two months. Their bodies recovered from what they had been suffering from, which proves the efficacy of camel’s urine in treating some diseases of the digestive system.
Camel’s urine acts as a slow-acting diuretic, but it does not deplete potassium & other salts as other diuretics do, because camel’s urine contains a high level of potassium & proteins. It has also been proven to be effective against some types of bacteria & viruses. It gave improvement in the condition of twenty-five patients who used camel’s urine for dropsy, without disrupting their potassium levels. Two of them were cured of liver pain & their liver function was restored to normal levels, as well as the tissue of the liver being improved. One of the medicines used to treat blood clots is a compound called Fibrinoltics which works by changing a substance in the body from its inactive form, Plasminogen, to its active form, Plasmin, in order to dissolve the substance that causes clotting, Fibrin. One of the components of this compound is called Urokinase, which is produced by the kidneys or from the urine, as indicated by the name “uro”.
The dean of the Faculty of Medical Science in the Sudanese Al-Jazeerah university, Professor Ahmad ‘Abd-Allaah Ahmadaani, has discovered a practical way of using camel’s urine to treat dropsy & swelling in the liver. Its success has been proven in treating those who are affected by these diseases. He said in a seminar organized by Al-Jazeerah University:
The experiment began by giving each patient a daily dose of camel’s urine mixed with camel’s milk to make it palatable. Fifteen days after the beginning of the experiment, the patients’ stomachs grew smaller & went back to their normal size.
He said that he examined the patients’ livers with ultrasound before the study began & he found out that the livers of fifteen out of the twenty-five were in a cirrhotic state & some of them had developed cirrhosis of the liver as the result of bilharzia (a chronic disease, endemic in parts of Africa & South America, caused by infestation with blood flukes (schistosomes). All of the patients responded to treatment with camel’s urine & some of them continued, by their own choice, to drink a dose of camel’s urine every day for a further two months. At the end of that time, they were all found to be cured of cirrhosis of the liver. He said: Camel’s urine contains a large amount of potassium, as well as albumen & magnesium, because the camel only drinks four times during the summer & once during the winter, which makes it retain water in its body so as to preserve the sodium & the sodium causes it not to urinate a great deal, because it keeps the water in the body.
He explained that dropsy (swelling of soft tissue with fluid collection) results from a deficiency of albumen or potassium & the urine of camels in rich in both of these.
He suggested that the best types of camels for using the urine as a remedy are young camels.
Dr. Ahlaam Al-‘Awadi, a specialist in microbiology in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, supervised some scientific papers that dealt with her discoveries in the usage of camel’s urine for medical treatment, such as the papers by ‘Awaatif Al-Jadeedi & Manaal Al-Qattaan. During her supervision of the paper by Manaal Al-Qattaan, she succeeded in confirming the effectiveness of using a preparation made from camel’s urine which was the first antibiotic produced in this manner anywhere in the world. Concerning the features of this new product, Dr. Ahlaam said: It is not costly & it is easy to manufacture. It can be used to treat skin diseases such as eczema, allergies, sores, burns, acne, nail infections, cancer, hepatitis & dropsy (swelling of soft tissue with fluid collection) with no harmful side effects.
And she said: Camel’s urine contains a number of healing factors & kills bacteria that are present in it, salts & urea. The camel possesses an immune system that is highly equipped to combat funguses, bacteria & viruses, because it contains anti-bodies. It may also be used to treat blood clots & fibrinolytics may be derived from it & it may be used to treat dropsy (swelling of soft tissue with fluid collection) (which is caused by a deficiency in albumen & potassium, as camel’s urine is rich in both). Camel’s urine may also provide a remedy for abdominal complaints, especially those of the stomach & intestines, as well as asthma & shortness of breath. It brought a noticeable reduction in patients’ sugar levels. It is a remedy for low libido & it aids in bone growth in children & in strengthening the heart muscles. It may be used as a cleansing agent for cleaning wounds & sores, especially the urine of young she-camels. It also helps the hair to grow & become strong & thick & it helps to prevent hair loss & baldness & can be used to treat dandruff. Camel’s urine may also be used to combat disease by using bacteria extracted from it. It was used to treat a girl who was suffering from an infection behind the ear that was accompanied by pus weeping from it & painful cracks & sores. It was also used to treat a girl who was unable to extend the fingers of her hands because of the presence of so many cracks & sores & whose face was almost black with pimples. Dr. Ahlaam said: Camel’s urine may also be used to treat the digestive system & to treat some cases of cancer. She stated that the research that she had undertaken on camel’s urine proved that it was effective in destroying micro-organisms such as fungus, yeast & bacteria.
Dr. Rahmah Al-Ulyaani, who is also from Saudi Arabia, carried out tests on rabbits infected with bacteria in the colon. She treated each group of rabbits with a different kind of medicine, including camel’s urine. There was a noticeable regression in the rabbits that were treated with other medicines, except for camel’s urine, which brought about a clear improvement.

Allaah calls upon us to ponder the creation of the camel, as He says, (meaning): “Do they not look at the camels, how they are created?”
This pondering is not limited to the outward form of the camel, or even to the inner workings of its body, rather it also includes that which we have discussed here, which is the benefits of the urine & milk of the camel. Modern scientific research is still discovering for us many of the wonders of this creature.
