Muhammad’s Fly-Wing Medicine (Fun Islamic Fact #9)

Welcome to “Fun Islamic Facts,” where I share
fun facts about Muhammad and the Qur’an, whenever jihadis go on a killing spree.” According to the Department of Entomology
at Penn State University: “House flies are not the neatest of insects. They visit such places as dumps, sewers, and
garbage heaps. They feed on fecal matter, discharges from
wounds and sores, sputum, and all sorts of moist decaying matter such as spoiled fish,
eggs and meat.” The pest-control experts at Orkin add: “House flies are recognized as carriers of
easily communicable diseases. Flies collect pathogens on their legs and
mouths when females lay eggs on decomposing organic matter such as feces, garbage and
animal corpses. House flies carry diseases on their legs and
the small hairs that cover their bodies. It takes only a matter of seconds for them
to transfer these pathogens to food or touched surfaces. Mature house flies also use saliva to liquefy
solid food before feeding on it. During this process, they transfer the pathogens
first collected by landing on offal. Diseases carried by house flies include typhoid,
cholera and dysentery. Other diseases carried by house flies include
salmonella, anthrax and tuberculosis. House flies have also been known to transmit
the eggs of parasitic worms.” So, flies carry a variety of diseases on their
legs and hairs, and they transfer these diseases rapidly. The illiterate, seventh-century, Arabian caravan
trader who declared himself to be a prophet, Muhammad, a different kind of exterminator,
had a very different view of flies and disease. Sahih al-Bukhari 3320: Narrated Abu Hurairah: The Prophet said, “If
a housefly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for
one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease.” Sunan Abu Dawud 3844: It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: The
Messenger of Allah said: “If a fly falls into the vessel of one of you then immerse
it, for on one of its wings is a disease and on the other is a cure. When it falls, it falls onto the wing on which
is a disease, so immerse it fully.” Think about all of the mistakes in Muhammad’s
brief science lesson. First, according to Muhammad, flies transfer
diseases that are carried primarily on their wings. In reality, flies spread diseases that are
primarily carried on their legs and hairs. Second, according to Muhammad, the diseases
that flies carry are only found on one of their wings. In reality, this is stupid. Germs clearly don’t know how to select one
wing over the other. Third, according to Muhammad, when a fly falls
into your food or drink, it always lands on the wing that carries the disease. In reality, this is stupid, too. How in the name of probability would a fly
always land on the diseased wing? Fourth, according to Muhammad, the wing that
doesn’t carry the disease carries the cure for the disease. In reality, this is extremely stupid. As we’ve seen, flies carry typhoid, cholera,
dysentery, anthrax, salmonella, and tuberculosis. Do Muslims really believe that the cures for
typhoid, cholera, dysentery, anthrax, salmonella, and tuberculosis are all found on whatever
fly wing is sticking up when a fly crash-lands in their hummus? Have Muslim researchers at top universities
discovered the cures for every disease carried by flies, simply by extracting the cures from
the cure wing (when they’re not busy studying the health benefits of camel urine, of course). Fifth, according to Muhammad, when a fly lands
in your food or drink, you should dunk the fly to make sure you get all of the cure off
its special healing wing. In reality, by dunking the fly, you’re exposing
yourself to even more pathogens, which are transferred from the legs and hairs that you’re
dunking in your food and drink. Welcome to Islam, the religion that can help
you catch typhoid, cholera, dysentery, anthrax, salmonella, and tuberculosis—if you take
its prophet seriously.


  1. hey david wood you proved your ability of brain washing people. >_< and those people who want to disprove islam always are brain washed by you. Go and check what science tells us today.ITs 100% accurate. science used to ignor it before but next they found out that the mohammads saying was 100% accurate. where this david wood came from . He didnto even read his own bible.


  3. David wood…don't be so homophobic, ask the scientists to disprove it scientifically an illiterate like u..thank

  4. modern science has no proved you wrong david. have you ever wondered why a fly never gets sick despite the fact that it goes to the most disgusting places? modern science has proved that a flies wings and antibodies that protect it. so when u dip the fly ur water has the same antibodies that protect the fly despite being in such disgusting places. all these stupid christians just going along with ur videos without any knowledge. keep making these videos you only prove islam right evertime and make it self look stupid. hah ha ha ha.

  5. Question. Muhamed was so big on his version of sanitary practices, yet he had an instruction–"if a dog licks a utensil,wash it seven times.the eighth time rub it with dirt."
    Worship of Asclepius had dogs as a sympathetic animal in their temples. This recognized how their licking wounds often facilitated healing.

    Bacon helps,too..

  6. Flies carry such harmful diseases as typhus.  *Please, Muslims, if a fly lands in your beverage, for your own safety do not listen to Muhammad — DISCARD THE BEVERAGE!!

  7. In reality… This is stupid! hahaha David you are great I am so, glad I came across your channel. We need more brilliant men like you and I want to be an apologist as you are (albeit not nearly as good :). Could you send me to any other videos learning apologetics?

  8. seriously ! anti Islam channel! you should've searched that scientifically before you make this stupid video.
    experiments were carried out in the field of producing antibiotics using insects, but surprisingly, what was done by Dr. "Joan Clark ,which is not a Muslim " in Australia, so when she found that flies have (contain) antibiotics on the surface of the body treating many of the diseases, so that flies have cure!!!
    Those came across this research were surprised, but experiments have continued, as scientists carried out a lot of research in this area and found that flies that carry a lot of diseases also holds a lot of antibiotics that can cure these diseases, and therefore do not get diseased by them (fly-borne)! !
    This is logical because the fly has a lot of harmful bacteria on the outside of her body and therefore in order to continue in her life, it should also carry anti-bacterial materials, these material were furnished by God to protect it from viruses and diseases.
    Surprisingly, scientists found that the best way to release (liberate) these vital substances is to dip the fly in a liquid!! Because these substances are concentrated on the outer surface of the fly body and wing.

  9. Hate towards Muslims will eat you from inside. when ignorant people mock you say peace.
    keep the hate and we will keep the love of Islam.

  10. Watch this 1.5 minute video: Moses and Jesus were Jews, and as such considered flies "unclean", and therefore CORRECTLY abstained from touching flies or eating food touched by flies, as commanded by the Torah. Medicine proves Judeo-Christianity true and Islam false.

  11. Subhanallah, My friends revert to Islam becoz of this video. Plss produce more video like this. No matter pros or cons, Islam just need publicity to grow faster

  12. This guy is an idiot lol, he is reading english translation and Arabic cannot be fully translated. In the Hadith it never says dunk idiot it says swipe lolololololo

  13. 1- Danny Kingsley , The new buzz on antibiotics,,  1 October 2002.
     2- Fruit Flies May Pave Way To New Treatments For Age-related Heart Disease, Burnham Institute, 2007. 3- The ointment in the fly: antibiotics, The Economist, December 3, 1994. 4- Protein in Fly Saliva Speeds Healing of Incisions, Wounds, Auburn University, 23 Jan 2005. 5- Fruit Fly Insight Could Lead To New Vaccines, Stanford University, March 11, 2007. 6- The fly effect: Russian scientists invent new medicine with the help of flies, St. Petersburg State University, 2006

  14. Here is a fun fact it's true, I just read an article on the BBC saying disease is carried under flies wings, then this :The surface of flies is the last place you would expect to find antibiotics, yet that is exactly where a team of Australian researchers is concentrating their efforts.Working on the theory that flies must have remarkable antimicrobial defences to survive rotting dung, meat and fruit, the team at the Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University, set out to identify those antibacterial properties manifesting at different stages of a fly's development. "Our research is a small part of a global research effort for new antibiotics, but we are looking where we believe no-one has looked before," said Ms Joanne Clarke, who presented the group's findings at the Australian Society for Microbiology Conference in Melbourne this week. The project is part of her PhD thesis.

  15. Finally scientists found antibiotics from fly wings sorry your video is smashed now.. see this link

  16. I guess David and co has not read this article yet. If it wasnt for your video i would have never found this amazing new discovery or is it 1400+ years old? Thank you for strengthening my believe in my faith. May peace be upon you.

  17. You should think why islaam Fastest growing in the world why not Christian and why not other religion are growing.

  18. Astagfirulloh,
    Say, "O disbelievers

    I do not worship what you worship.

    Nor are you worshippers of what I worship

    Nor will I be a worshipper of what you worship.

    Nor will you be worshippers of what I worship.

    For you is your religion, and for me is my religion."

    You will answer for this to Allah on judgement day

  19. My answer to the opiniated fools and the children of Satan. Islam is not fun but the true religion of the Creator the The Almighty Allah. Quran is the ocean of truth. I am a strong Muslim I love My creator My ALLAH and my beloved prophet. There is no god but ALLAH. Don't worry you son of satans Islam will prevail over all religion. Thank you my Creator for showing me the right path. Islam Islam Islam.

  20. see this


  22. Here in the Sonoran desert, flies have never been a problem to my knowledge. Then again, food waste and feces are not scattered about. But that is not the case in the middle East according to some people I have spoken with. I am told the smell hits you as soon as the aircraft door opens.

  23. How to beat ISIS
    1) breed flies carrying diseases
    2) broadcast Sahih al-Bukhari 3320 in arabic to them nonstop
    3) release flies into ISIS territory
    4) profit

  24. My religion is Al Islam …
    Professor Juan Alvarez Bravo – University of Tokyo – Japan says: that the last thing a human can accept is to see flies in the hospital! But soon we will be seeing an effective treatment for many diseases extracted from flies

    Please watch – at least – one of these videos about Insect wings antibacterial Nanopillars to know … is it a funny fact or a miracle ?
    Just Read ….

  25. Here are 2 links from non – Islamic sites says that science has at last discovered some antibacterial / antidote in flies.

  26. Hey whatever he is said it is correct. I think it is good for you to look again. It is right the other you tube channalers tells that left wing contain poison and right contains antitode. You just look I don't know

  27. but you have never read anything about the scientific facts that Islam has proven, you just like to point to something that no one will debate about.
    if you are not really biased , make a video about anything Islam has has proven 1400 years ago. and i'm sure you'll find a lot since you are man who have the full ability to use google to search the same way you did to make this video.
    at the end we are worshiping allah not because he can provide us with scientific facts in his holy book, Quran , we worship allah because he's a god that deserves to be worshiped .
    if the science says that there are some facts that agrees with what Islam says, that's a plus , but if doesn't , that will not stop us from worshiping him.
    about flies
    read this if you think you are unbiased and maybe you can make a video to respond to this comment

    Scientific proof is here. Even though Christians try to defame islam, allah makes islam keeps growing..

  29. Actually this is not the right statement,.. It s said tht the house flies carries a deadly disease on one of its wing and the cure for the same on the another. And also one can't find tht which wing was touched in the food. "It doesn't mean tht if it is sit on the food but if it was fell on the food. " . so, as we don't know which wing is with disease and which is with its cure, it is advised to dip both of its wing so the wing with medical character can cure if the diseased wing was fell in the food and vice versa.
    So don't try to be over smart

  30. I think better you guys read this scientific article that said by drowning the flies you will get antibiotics.

  31. A warm hello to the maker of this video and to all the people watching this specific video, i am proud of being a good muslim and I want all of you guys to know that prophot Mohammed (pbuh) was a ritious prophet of god and what all he said was indeed true.
    If you go to the website known as ABC science (which is not a muslim site. It is a cristian site ). There is this article known as "The new buzz on antibiotics", and it clearly tells us that flies DO carry antibiotic on there bodies and gut.

    Our prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a true and affectionate person who came as mercy and showed the way of peace to all of us.

    Thank you. I have shared the link of the site discussing about the miracle of our prophet.

  32. Australian researchers said they have found that flies could be a source of new drugs to fight deadly bacteria.


    "We tested the secreted antibiotic on three types of bacteria," Clarke said, including golden staph and the common gut bug, E. coli and a yeast, "and the antibiotic killed them all."

    The nanoscale structure of a clanger cicada’s wings destroys threatening microbes on contact.
    It’s one of the first natural surfaces found to kill bacteria simply by virtue of its physical structure,
    an array of hexagonal “nanopillars” on the wings of a clanger cicada (Psaltoda claripennis) can put enough strain on bacterial cells to rupture them. The findings, published last month (February 19) in Biophysical Journal, detail how this nanoscale structure can be so deadly.

    The antibiotic material is extracted by drowning the flies in ethanol, then running the mixture through a filter to obtain the crude extract.
    When this was placed in a solution with various bacteria including E.coli, Golden Staph, Candida (a yeast) and a common hospital pathogen, antibiotic action was observed every time.

  33. Don't spread false information.
    Click the link to get right informatio
    Also too

  34. Please stop spreading hate with little knowledge. Please read this article.

  35. you can look up the benefit of camel milk and urine yourself just to make you feel in reality real stupid

    Researchers found evidence that on the fly wings there is a gene refilin, a gene that can treat diseases that exist in the arterial nerve and meina nerve. The refilin gene present in the flies' wings can treat the blockages that occur in both nerves. By inserting the fly into the water the refilin genes present on the wing will be scattered in the water until the water is clean again from the disease on the left wing.

  36. Facts like this or some from the Apostate Prophet should make most Muslims wake up and realise how foolish they really are to believe in such make belief rhetoric from their user's instruction manual…

    It's so mind boggling how naive many of those people can be, some of which are actually otherwise intelligent..

  37. He never told us to swallow the fly, he told us to dip it and remove it from the drink. You getting it wrong. One thing I heard and saw everywhere , that people saying Muslim tell them to convert in Islam, bro they know the real truth, and when you will see the truth it will be so late! I feel bad for them who don’t want to believe . Muslim means who believe in One Creator the Almighty, who has created you. Science couldn’t prove that the holy book The Quran, has something wrong in it. If you believe science, brothers you gotta believe in Islam, and why not , think bro, why are you here, and why do you die ? If this life was for us to live forever then why we die! Think about your existence! Listen we would not get millions of dollars by making you a Muslim, we just want you to believe the truth! Come on there must be a reason for us to be here!! Alright thank you !
    And Assalamu alaikum ( peace be upon you)

  38. By saying ONE WING it's not a literal meaning, prophet Muhammad peace be upon him tells us that some part of the insect carries disease as well as a cure . This doesn't mean that it rests solely on the 'wings'
    The common fly carries parasitic pathogens for many diseases including malaria, typhoid fever, cholera, and others. It was also discovered that the fly carried parasitic bacteriophagic fungi capable of fighting the germs of all these diseases.

  39. By Allah in Whose Hand my life is, in this life you can mock Us but in afterlife people who mock muslim will regret it, you can believe it or not but for us when houseflies fall into the drink we dip it and we never get ill from that, someday that wing will cure every one of you who have mock our prophet, but each one of you surely turn away from sign, except the person who receives the sign Wallahu a’lam

  40. Instead of being skeptical, I think it is important to be open-minded to explanation and recent studies from both sides. I found the explanation from this speaker’s corner ( ) about a study from Professor of Entomology in Kairo and his invitation to conduct the research is quite broaden our perspectives

  41. iam a muslim and if i fly landed on my juice i wont give her a juicy bath than throw her away that will be mean ,get your self another juice 🍹🍹

  42. Wait…..medical science just has to catch a few flies and dunk them into a sick persons drink and we have a cure all…>>Why haven't islamic scientists patented this…..probably because it is so abusrd, they would be laughed at…..wait a minuted, I am not a scientist and I am laughing at how ludicrous is this….. I wonder how many Muslims actually believe that…….Maybe as a show of faith in their prophet they should all do this every day to show it is not harmful but helpful………..I wonder what the person count would be after a few months???

  43. OK then that was the reasons Mo hated geckos so much. He apparently believed that flies can cure diseases. Stupid religion.

  44. Brother it has already fallen in food/drink ur just maintaining or not giving chance for action of that disease,hadies doesn't speak about external disease it's just says about it's just,about fly (wings) internal disease or cure say want is written n if u can't understand ask the meaning from Muslim scholars

  45. Believe me you are very stupid cus' you have not presented your refute with science nor any clear evidence…He brought a knowledge you didn't know until 19th century …your bigotry is blinding you…Peace be upon Muhamed😍

  46. Prophet Muhammed( peace be upon him) is not a lier….each and every word come from his mouth is true.

  47. Here is a Muslim, I start from the last word said on that video , world counts 1،6 billion Muslims and am sure that just few of them has cholera and the other desires the video monitored. Second maybe the science didn’t discovered yet that comes from our belief that Muhammad was honest loyal trustful faithful in all his life even with his enemies that’s what historians said and because of other medicals thar Muhammad showed through the Quran too, and I suggest “ 9 most shocked facts from the Quran “ thar u can get what am saying

  48. 120,000 species of flies
    Which house fly you are talking about and which house fly is Our Prophet (s.a.w) talking about might not be the same… And who knows except Almighty, whether that particular species of fly is extinct by this time…and thanks for taking an effort to make this video 😊
