Islamic voodoo medicine revisited

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Allah knows what you don't know

Our dear Fahad's reference is not a book of medicine or a book on human physiology or even from a qammos or ma3jam 3Aarbi but from a tendentious Muslim web site and it is the glorious site:


ROTFL Islamic voodoo medicine

dhimmi no more, I don't know if this website is tabligee or not.

What do you think? and what on earth is islamic medicine? so there also must be kuffar medicine! No thank you I will go for kuffar medicine

But, i don't think it will hurt you looking at it. It describe Embryology and Human creation.

If I want to read about embryology I will check a real book of human embryology written by more likely than not an infidel and I will assure you that such text book will not say that the union of an ovum and a sperm is a blood clot (sic) as in your Allah's voodoo medicine.

Get a different perspective.

A different perspetive of what? voodoo medicine? Get real

If you don't trust my testimony, you can take the verse 96:2 to your family doctor and have him explain it to you.

Well let us see Q92:2 says

khalaqa al-insan min 3alaqi and it means

1. khalaqa means he creted

2. al-insan means the human being (m)

3. min means from

4. 3alaqi means clot and for this see Hans Wehr dictionary page 634B

So your Allah is saying

created the human being (m) from a clot

If your Allah would have said that

khalaqa al-insan min al-hayawan al-manawi wa al-byda Or

created the human being from the (union of) the sperm and the ovum

You would be correct but this is not what it says in the Qur'an it says man was created from a clot. It means that your Allah had no clue about sperms or ova

So much for voodoo medicine

I am not a doctor. its not gonna do anygood sitting on the computer and read definitions.

So why do you pontificate about a subject that is beyond you?

if you knew arabic, you would have known that the word 'alaq' besides meaning a congealed clot of blood also means something that clings, a leech-like substance.

I know my Arabic and you do not know and I did post it in another blog but here you again and for the Arabic language root 3LQ (see Hans Wehr page 634A and B) we have the following stems and words:

1. yu3aliq or he suspends or hangs and it has nothing to do with the word clot except they belong to the same root 3LQ

2. 3alqa or beating and this word has nothing to do with either clot or suspension but all three words belong to the same root 3LQ

3. 3ilaqa or relationship and it has nothing to do with yu3aliq or 3alaqa

4. ta3leeq or commentray

5. 3aliq or fodder

6. 3yn lam qaf or 3alq means coagualted blood or clot

As for the word leech it means 3alq because a leech looks like, and you guessed it, a blood clot.

And you would agree with me that the word clot does not mean suspends or hangs or a beating or a relationship or a commentary or a fodder but again in the minds of those who really do not know the Arabic language like you anything goes

One more thing before i step out of this discussion, think for couple of hours before you write or speak or even after you read, you should think for couple hours or days.

About what? that your Allah teaches you voodoo medicine and voodoo physiology and you still believe it?

Even though, you do your homework, you read, and you still don't understand, now thats a shame. Don't just read, understand what you read.

Islamic gobbledygook
