Drinking camel urine, like beheading non-Muslims and marrying 7-year-old girls, is one of those disgusting customs upheld by the quran and the hadiths.

A cure for the most dreaded of diseases where you might least expect it, but exactly where a quran-literate Muslim would expect to find it. Dr. Faten Abdel-Rahman Khorshid is responsible for one of the Kingdom’s greatest national achievements in the field of science for her work which began with the urine of camels and concluded in a potential cure for cancer.
TRANSLATION of description:
In the Arab peninsula, patients consume 100 ml of camel urine per day, either on its own or mixed with camel milk. This cure is said to help with or get rid of a great many illnesses.
Camel urine is used in particular to treat skin-related illnesses, such as ringworm, scabies or cutaneous abscesses, dental problems, eye infections, snake bites, but also all abdominal pains (in particular stomach pains), and ulcers. Camel urine also has anti-dandruff properties and, when used in shampooing, it lends a brilliant lustre to the hair. It can also prevent thirst and hunger for the caravan driver lost in the desert. Several researchers in Arab countries also declare that camel urine has anti-carcinogenic properties, particularly with regard to cancer of the liver.
Frontpage (Daniel Greenfield) Some people from the tribe of ‘Ukl came to the Prophet and embraced Islam. The climate of Medina did not suit them, so the Prophet ordered them to go to the (herd of milch) camels of charity and to drink, their milk and urine (as a medicine).
Like most quran stories, this one ended ISIS-style with torture, murder and mutilation: Muhammad then ordered to cut off their hands and feet (and it was done), and as well their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron rods. They were put in ‘Al-Harrah’ and when they asked for water; no water was given to them”, till they died of extreme thirst!
But camel urine is still considered a magical medicine that cures all Muslim ills. Except it doesn’t seem to cure the lack of a conscience. Especially in Saudi Arabia, which is camel central. One camel urine vendor decided to cut costs by swapping in his own urine. Saudi authorities have closed down the shop selling camel urine drinks after discovering the owner had been filling the bottles with his own bodily waste.
The World Health Organization (WHO), however, has warned against drinking camel urine.
