Paper: Patient with 2000 Nails

A Case Study of Modern Medical Practice and Islamic Complementary Therapy on a Patient with Over 2000 Embedded Nails

International Journal of Public Health Science (IJPHS) Vol.4, No.4, December 2015, pp. 310~314

Abstract

In South East Asia, patients often resort to various forms of complementary therapy apart from utilizing mainstream modern medicine in Hospitals. Islamic-based complementary therapy employs various forms of biophysical, psychological, social, cultural, and spiritual interventional methods based on the prevailing belief and cultural system to provide a holistic Syariah compliant approach in patient management. The concept of diseases caused by sorcery and paranormal means using intermediaries like Jinn and evil spirits that have been in existence since time immemorial across religions, cultures and societies around the world. Currently, the practice of black magic and the belief in the paranormal still widely exist in the midst of modern civilization in this region. Modern medical practice has no definitive answer for a person with an unusual medical illness who is believed to have been afflicted by black magic because of its non-specific clinical presentation and non-response to conventional management paradigm which defies medical logic. In this paper, we describe a true case of a lady, who suffered from more than 2000 nails embedded inside her body for one and a half years. Upon admission to a hospital in Indonesia, she underwent a surgical procedure to remove all of the nails but to no avail; the nails re-appeared at other parts of her body. The surgical team later decided to conduct an Islamic complementary therapy on the patient, and subsequently, managed to extract all of the remaining nails without further bleeding. In conclusion, unusual or mysterious medical illness, sometimes referred to as idiopathic in etiology, not responding to conventional medical or surgical intervention, may potentially benefit from the use of Islamic complementary therapy.

Jinn Possession in Mental Health Disorder

The paper Jinn Possession in Mental Health Disorder was presented by Hamidi Abdul Rahman at the Regional Forum (ASEAN) on Jinn and Sihr in Medicine at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 29-30 November 2014.

Introduction

This paper discusses the diversity in the understanding of mental health disorders, Muslims perception of jinn as a contributing factor affecting mental health, a new Pisang Jinn Possession Model, diagnosis of jinn possession and the therapy for jinn possession.

The understanding of mental health disorder varies across cultures (Somer, 2006). The differences can arise from the difference in understanding or modelling of the human e.g. the concept of psyche, body, soul etc. It can be explained, for example, from a Biblical and Hebrew perspective (Kaplan & Schwartz,1997). Rather than dying out, the belief in supernatural entities is widespread today even amongst the well-educated population in Western countries (Thomason, 2008). The belief is also prevalent in other cultures and religion, including Christianity (Leavey, 2010).

The term mental health disorder is subjective and can differ according to cultures. The symptoms of the problems may be similar but the classification may differ according to the understanding of the person. The perceived cause of mental illnesses can be biological (brain abnormality, genes, or chemical imbalance) or non-biological (stress, relationship, childhood experience etc) (Sears, Pomerantz, Segrist, & Rose, 2011). Epilepsy, for example, can be perceived as medical or punishment by God or expiation of sins, etc. (Small et al., 2005).

The difference in the understanding of mental health disorder is not limited to the general public but also extends into the scientific community. A set of symptoms classified as “Trance and possession disorders” under ICD-10 is classified as “Dissociative Identity Disorder” under DSM-5. Differences or controversies on the classification can be attributed by the different understanding of mental health disorder or can be caused by unhealthy influence of pharmaceutical companies in the classification revision process (“Controversy over DSM-5: new mental health guide”, 2013).

Talk in Gothenburg, Sweden

Video of talk held in Gothenburg, Sweden in April 2014. We would like to thank the Muslim community in Gothenburg who organised the talk, produced and uploaded the video on YouTube.

 

Ruqyah means incantation and any therapy that uses ruqyah as a main component can be termed as ruqyah therapy. Ruqyah can be divided into 2 categories. Ruqyah that complies with shariah are termed ruqyah shariyyah (shariah-compliant ruqyah) and ruqyah which contains shirk (polytheistic practices) are termed ruqyah shirkiyyah (polytheistic ruqyah). Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) approved the use of a particular ruqyah that was practised during pre-Islamic period because it did not have any polytheistic elements in it. Shirk (polytheism) is the boundary that separates lawful (halal) and unlawful (haram) ruqyah.

Ruqyah was used as treatment during the time of the prophet. In one incident, a companion recited surah al-Fatihah (the Opening Chapter) to treat a tribal leader from snake bite even though the prophet had never taught anyone to recite al-Fatihah for treatment of snake bites.

Unlike snake bites, jinn-related disorder can affect a person both physically and psychologically. If a person has just been affected by jinn, the damage might just be confined to psychological. However, if one or more jinn has been living in a person for a long period, the effect can both be physical as well as psychological. Jinn is a living organism and is a parasite that consumes food to survive and secretes excretion into the human body. The excretion (i.e. toxins) will cause imbalance i.e. disrupts the homeostasis of the body, which in turn will affect the health of the person.

Jinn-related disorder therefore not only affects the mental health of a person but may also affect the physical health. These may cause additional psychosomatic problems. When a person thinks about his physical health, he or she will feel depressed. If a person is depressed, his or her physical health may deteriorate.

The therapy for jinn-related disorder should therefore not rely on ruqyah (incantation) alone. The therapy should be holistic in manner and must include ruqyah and psychotherapy at the very minimum. As in any psychotherapy session, the therapist should show empathy and must never blame the client for his or her predicament. The aim of any therapy is to help the client to move forward with his or her life. Blaming the client can be considered as a sign of failure to provide an effective therapy. An angry therapist will cause more harm than good.

Empowering Patani Malay Youth in Europe

Patani Youth gathering in Hamburg

The president of PISANG, Hamidi Abdul Rahman, was given the honour of delivering a speech to the Patani Malay Youth Association in Europe event on 23rd August 2014. Patani youths from The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and Sweden gathered in Hamburg, Germany for a 2-day event. This was the first gathering organised by the Patani Malay youth in Europe. The population of Patani Malay youths in Europe is increasing and they plan to organise further gatherings in other cities in Europe.

Patani is a region of predominantly Muslim population in the south of Thailand. Hamidi emphasised on the need of developing quality leadership amongst the youths. Most of the youths were born outside the homeland. They will have to develop new leadership skills so that they can contribute towards the development of their people in Patani in particular and the global Muslim population in general.

A delegation comprising of directors and volunteers from PISANG (2 from UK, 5 from Malaysia and 1 from The Netherlands) toured several cities in Sweden, Norway and The Netherlands from 1st to 14th April 2014. At the request of the Muslim community in Gothenburg (Sweden), we conducted 3 days of Quranic Therapy for those who have pre-booked appointments. A talk on Quranic Therapy was also delivered by PISANG's Chairman. The lively session had to be cut short due to time constraint. We were very pleased with the hospitality of the Muslim community over there. The event had opened a new chapter in forging brotherhood between PISANG and the Muslim community in Gothenburg and also in promoting Quranic Therapy in the West. We were also impressed with the attendance that comprise of people from various ethnic background e.g. Somalis, Arabs, North Africans, Pakistanis, Malays and Swedish Muslim converts.

Therapists for jinn possession

The belief that spirits can possess a person is not something new. It is also believed in various cultures, religious or atheistic. Different cultures have different ways of expelling the spirits from the possessed person. Ancient practices include trephining (drilling a hole in the skull) to release the spirit.

In Islam, the different species of spirits are collectively referred to as jinn in the Arabic language. The terminology "jinn" in Islam has a different concept from the terminology "spirits" as believed in many other cultures. Many would attach the word "evil" to "spirits" but not all jinn are evil. There are also civilised jinn who have their own system of governance and believe in religion.

Although the word "jinn" is used in Islam, it does not mean that jinn have never entered the human body before Islam. Semitic religions before Islam have their own ways of dealing with jinn. The Quran was not revealed then, so it is obvious that they did not use any Quranic verses. One of the methods in Islam that is used for the exorcism is ruqyah. Ruqyah means incantation. With the arrival of Islam, guidelines were put in place forbidding all polytheistic practices including prohibition of having polytheistic contents in incantations. In one instance, from an authentic narration, Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) even approved an incantation from pre-Islamic period (meaning non-Quranic incantation) that did not have any polytheistic content. In other words, Islam defined polytheism as a boundary that must never be crossed.
