Religion is also responsible for the retarding of scientific progress. For close to a thousand years the Catholic church halted the advance of scientific knowledge. Today, we are still witnessing battles in our schools over the teaching of evolution, a theory that is as true as the theory of gravity. Stem cell research, which holds incredible promise, has been slowed. Many evangelicals still believe that the Earth is only 6,000 years old. Science is a major cause of humanity's advancement over the last 300 years, and religion is still getting in the way.
Religious superstition runs rampant in some societies, with often tragic results. When people turn to a god, or any other superstition to heal those who need doctors, people suffer. And often needlessly. Take this story reported in ArabNews.com.
A 29-year-old Saudi in Makkah has been living in chains for over six years because he is, according to his father, possessed by a female jinn who refuses to leave him.This poor man needs hospitalization, not religious fakery. But, the sheiks gave their treatment plan, and now this poor man has been chained for six years. Some of the comments are astounding in their faith in woo and allah.
“Medical doctors and religious sheikhs have failed to diagnose my son. When he has fits, he has convulsions and his entire body twists and his eyes become completely white. Then the voice of a woman can be heard coming from him,” said the father of the young man identified only as Turki.
“When my son first began suffering from this problem I took him to sheikhs to recite Qur’an on him but most of them became scared when they heard the female voice telling them that she was a royal jinn and that no one can exorcise her unless Turki dies,” he said.
The father said a sheikh advised him to tie his son’s arms and legs with iron chains and to read Qur’an on him. “We did this. My son became quiet but is totally unaware of what is happening around him. He does not talk and is now unable to harm anyone,” he added.
It is very unbeliveable something like this can happen to Turki. As they live in makkah, my advice is to take him to the Kaaba and make him drink zamzam water. There is no better place to cure yourself in front of the Kaaba. At least you are lucky you live next to the Kaaba. I hope you follow my advice and then you can see that how Allah helps him. Just trust in Allah.
My advice to the family of this man to bring some sheikh from India or Pakistan, who are mastered in removing of theses kind of jinns. the family should contact local Darul Ulum of these countries. They will advice the family and will surely assist you in this matter.
It may be real jinn or shaitan inside him or a metal disorder.Brain functions all parts i have seen people with slight metal disorder and there mouth is turned due to that or some other changes.If it is jinn or rooh than definetly there is any story behind that.may be someones body is dumped inside the house or turkis ancestors have done some thing very bad to any girl and dumped her brutally.without any information to her relatives... ALLAH KNOWS WE DON'T KNOW...
Scary what superstition can do to one's reason.
