Anas b. Malik reported that some people belonging (to the tribe) of ‘Uraina came to Mohamed at Medina, but they found its climate uncongenial. So Mohamed said to them: If you so like, you may go to the camels of Sadaqa and drink their milk and urine. They did so and were all right.
It is still considered to this day among Muslim Scholars that drinking camel urine has many benefits including curing some of the most difficult diseases to cure, against repeated scientific evidence.
Hitchens was an ardent advocate for the separation of church and state; a self-described antitheist, he regarded the concept of a god or supreme being as atotalitarian belief that destroys individual freedom, and argued that free expression and scientific discovery should replace religion as a means of teaching ethics and defining human civilization. In 2007, Hitchens published his most popular book, God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, which was a New York Times bestseller.
