Camel urine.


sir if the expression (drink camel urine ) used by Qatadah (narrator) is doubtful in hadith in which prophet allowed people of ukraine to drink camel milk and urine for their illness then why some scholars make it halal to drink camel urine as in normal medical illness.


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

The main reason for the camel urine to be halal in the condition of only medical illness is because it is known as a cure for some diseases.

Camel urine (CU) is considered the prototype of urotherapy and possesses more beneficial effects than other animal urine (Abdel Gader & Alhaider, 2016). It consists of various chemical constituents that contribute to its anticancer, antiplatelet, gastroprotective and hepatoprotective effects.

Ruling 2644. It is unlawful to drink the urine of animals whose meat is unlawful to eat. The same applies to the urine of animals whose meat is lawful to eat, even that of camels, based on obligatory precaution. However, there is no problem in drinking the urine of camels, cows, and sheep if it is for the purposes of medical treatment.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
