Reply to Extremist Wahhabis Who Deny Miraculous Healing Power of Holy Qur’an
“And We have sent down in the Holy Qur’an that which has healing and mercy for the believers.” (Holy Qur’an)
For the first time in the history of medical science and the world: A scientific demonstration of the healing powers of the Holy Qur’an based on the El Gilani Methodology, in healing incurable mental diseases, conducted before a team of international researchers in Taif, Saudi Arabia (1976-77), once and for all disproving the baseless, pseudo-scientific theories of modern psychiatry and Freudism. Includes a report of the revival of a brain-dead patient in Germantown Hospital, PA, USA.
Unprecedented in medical History! Establishment of the first Institute of Qur’anic Therapy!
Healing through the Holy Qur’an has begun under scientifically controlled conditions for the first time in the world. A complete wing has been established in the Shahar Mental Hospital, Taif, where this type of therapy is being practiced. This project commenced last month under the supervision of a group of qualified doctors headed by Dr. Osama Radi. They heal various conditions through selected [lines] of the Holy Qur’an. Dr. Mubarik Gilani is the physician who has formulated Qur’anic Therapy. Dr. Munir Jaber is the assisting general physician and Professor Abdullah Tooyail controls the investigations’ developments and serves as the project registrar. Mrs. Elahi Daj is the project nurse. Another group of doctors and nurses are cooperating with the members of this undertaking.
Invitation to the Islamic Ulema and Ummah
Healing through the Holy Qur’an: This was the topic on which Sheikh Saleh bin Lehyan lectured last Monday, where many notables were present. This topic, for the first time, opens ways of such scientific investigations. The Honorable Sheikh has removed successfully all the doubts which were raised by some people about this therapy. Following this, details of the formation of the new project laid down a month ago in Shahar were narrated.
Al Nadwa reporter Hamaad Al Salmi wrote:
“I was thinking after the lecture that though this type of therapy has been known since the days of Rasulallah (sallallahu alayhi wasalaam), what would be its shape nowadays? Before I could put my question, Dr. Osama Radi announced that whosoever participated in the experiment should cooperate with the medical group to whom it has been assigned. But when would this wing be established? When would the healing start? What would be the results? What type of diseases would be cured? I asked many such questions, as I was eager to receive their immediate reply.”
Patient Suffering From Continuous Bouts of Epilepsy Healed Through Holy Qur’an
A person suffering from severe bouts of epilepsy, for one full month was rendered speechless, nor could he take any foods or liquids. He was unable to walk or attend to his own hygiene. With the first treatment of Qur’anic therapy, he showed immediate improvement. After the second treatment, the patient was able to speak and take meals. Normally, the conventional treatment for such a condition, with the use of electric shock and medicines, would take up to one full year to show improvement, yet this patient became normal in some weeks time. By the virtue of Allah’s Might, and the effect of Wisdom contained in the Holy Qur’an, clear results were achieved.
Experiment Conducted on Two Trees
During my visit to Pakistan, I met a friend of mine, Dr. Mubarik Gilani, who is a physician in the project. He conducted an experiment before witnesses, myself being one of them, using two plants of the same species in the same soil. Dr Gilani thereby recited [lines] of Holy Quran over one plant and something else over the other plant. The plant over which Holy Quran was read grew to double the size of the other in due course of time, although their nurturing and care was identical. This experiment concluded the demonstration of the effects of Holy Quranic [lines]on other living things.
How this Began
Dr. Osama Radi states “From 24th to 26th Safar, 1396 A.H., experimentation commenced in Cairo following an in-depth study at a conference sponsored by the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) whereby the significance of Quranic Therapy was recognized. The resolution was adopted to continue research in this method of healing and present the findings at the next conference , InShaAllah. We were to present modern literary, scientific means to continue research, so that its discussion becomes reasonable.”
” Dr. Mubarik Gilani received many invitations from American institutions and universities while he was in Pakistan. These invitations were extended with the intent that he would continue his research development abroad.Dr. Osama further elaborated “He (Dr. Gilani) wrote to me regarding going to America and completing the experiments there. I instructed him to carry on (at the institute in Taif). He is therefore working solely for Allah’s happiness, and is not taking any fees or salary.”
A Case of Chronic Madness
What are the states of chronic madness, and how can they best be healed? Foremost, chronic mental disorders and madness alike are subject to relapse if the patient discontinues the therapy or leaves his specialized outpatient treatment. In the case of one patient previously diagnosed as insane, Dr. Gilani read [lines] of Holy Quran over him and ordered the patient’s doses of medicine to be reduced gradually. At present, the patient has shown remarkable improvement and is completely drug- free. The patient had undergone extensive treatment with drugs, but displayed only insignificant changes in his behavior. The patient remained in a constant state of fear, which drugs did not relieve. These symptoms dissipated with each treatment of Quranic Therapy, allowing the patient to resume a happy life.
Dr Gilani’s Open invitation
Anyone who desired to witness demonstrations of the Quranic Therapy were invited by Dr. Gilani to visit the wing in Shahar Hospital specially established for the experiments. Dr. Gilani was confident in welcoming observers to witness and document the state of each patient under his care, before treatment and afterwards.
El Sheikh Gilani is declared in S. Arabia, Imam of Quranic Science. The following is the tribute paid to him, in the form of a poem, by one of the Egyptian doctors at a large meeting in Taif:
“My apologies, I have now forgotten scholars.
For him, on the wings of treatment with the Quraan he soars.
With the Quran in Gilani’s right hand and with the permission of Allah he gives peace to minds that are sick.
For every illness an ayah of Quran he recites, glory be to the One Who gives life to bones that have decayed.
And if the pioneer of treatment with knowledge is Usaama, then the leader in treatment with the Quran is Gilani.”
–Doctor Rushdi Hassan Mahmud
