The Quranic Cure

Terry Jones, take note: a Pakistani doctor has discovered that regular doses of the Quran are an extraordinarily effective medical treatment.

LAHORE- Hafiz Abbas, 22, a resident of Rajgarh, consumed a poisonous grain preservative pill on Feb 19 and was brought to the intensive care unit of the Services Hospital, Lahore. Usually doctors consider such cases hopeless given the survival rate of such patients, which is only ten percent.

The patient’s organs–liver, pancreas, kidneys and heart–were deteriorating, but an on-duty doctor, Dr Muhammad Javed, took the case as a challenge and started treatment. “During a six-hour struggle, the patient was treated with 150 electric shocks to keep his heart beating. His stomach and kidneys were washed and with the help of supporting treatment, he came out of unconsciousness.”

“I’ve never seen any patient whose heart beat stops 150 times and is resuscitated by as many electric shocks,” says Dr Javed.

The result may be surprising for other doctors, but Dr Javed was sure of what had cured Abbas: it was not any medicine, but recitation of the glorious verses from the Holy Quran that brought about the miracle.

“During the treatment of Abbas, Surah Al-Rehman was continuously played by his bedside and this worked as a wonder-antidote,” he said.

Dr. Javed is neither a cleric nor a faith-healer. He has a distinguished medical record, as his business card shows, with its list of Pakistani and American critical care board certifications. Currently, he is the head of the Services Hospital’s ICU and a consulting physician and intensive care specialist.

After staying in the ICU for three weeks, the patient, Hafiz Abbas is no longer on medication and is leading a normal life. He listens to Surah Al-Rehman three times a day, as advised by his doctor.

Dr Javed not only prescribes this surah[chapter]to his patients and trainee doctors who work with him at the ward, he wants all medical practitioners to follow the divine antidote. He plays the recitation of the surah on a cassette player in the ward three times a day, which he

calls “doses” that strengthen the willpower of patients.

According to him, several patients of epilepsy, brain hemorrhage and organ failures have shown unbelievable recovery because of the surah.

“I really don’t know how listening to these golden words works in the recovery of patients but my results say that this chapter of the Holy Quran not only works-but works wonders,” he says. He tries to make his point through data of patients he has treated in the hospital.

During his four-year stint at the ICU of the Services Hospital, he has treated 96 cases of wheat pill cases and 75 of them survived the poison. According to the data available on the Internet, the mortality rate of those consuming aluminium phosphide (what a wheat pill contains) in European and American hospitals is 90 to 100 per cent.

Dr Javed says families of victims should immediately bring patients to a hospital where doctors can first ascertain the nature of poison.

Supporting treatment like washing the stomach and kidneys should be done with palm oil. He says Pakistani medical students should improve their knowledge of toxicology. He also invites biologists, bio-cell engineers and faith-healers to find the missing links between the recitation of the Holy Quran and brain cells of the human. “The ICU is open to all researchers. I play the recitation three times a day and get good results,” he says.
