Cataract from Al-Quran
One of the Swiss
pharmaceutical companies has started producing a new medicine called "Medicine
of Quran" which allows the treatment of cataract without surgery. As the
newspaper Ar-Raya, published in Qatar writes, "this drug which was
synthesised by an Egyptian doctor Abdul Basit Muhammad from the
secretions of human sweat glands and has an effectiveness of 99 per cent
with absolutely no side effects, was registered in Europe and the United
States. It is also reported that one of the Swiss companies produces the new
drug in the form of liquid and eye drops."
The source of inspiration is Surah Yusaf. Dr. Abdul Basit Muhammad
emphasised that he obtained his inspiration from Surah Yusaf and said: "Once
in the morning, I was reading Surah (chapter) Yusuf. My attention lingered
over the 84th and successive ayats (verses). "Go with this shirt of mine,
and cast it over the face of my father, he will become clear-sighted, and
bring to me all your family" (Qur'an 12:93)
They tell that Prophet Yaqoob who was mourning his son Yusaf (AS) in sadness
and grief got his eyes turned white and later when people cast over the
sorrowful father's face, the shirt of his son Yusuf, vision returned to him
and he was able to see again.
Here I started pondering. What could be there in the shirt of Yusuf? Finally
I arrived at the decision that nothing except sweat could be on it. I
concentrated my thoughts over the sweat and its composition. Then I
proceeded to the laboratory for research. I carried out a series of
experiments on rabbits. The results turned out to be positive. Later I
performed treatment on 250 patients by administering the drug twice a day
for two weeks. Finally I achieved 99 per cent success and said to myself: "This
is the miracle of the Quran".
Dr Abdul Basit Muhammad presented the results of his research to appropriate
institutions in Europe and the United States dealing with patenting of new
discoveries for consideration. After tests and research were performed, he
finalised a contract with a Swiss company on the production of the medicine
on the condition that the package should clearly mention - "Medicine of
Quran." In the words of the Egyptian scientist, the company accepted his
condition and started producing the new drug.
We send down from the Qur'an that which is a healing and mercy to those
who believe. (Al-Qur'an 17:82)
