ISLAM-Muhammad’s Temporal Lobe Epilepsy



Islam , Immoral Theology of a Sick Arab

That is what The great Attaturk, father of the Turkish republic  had said about Islam over 80 years ago . Although he had  no training in Neurology but now  the  modern Neurologists agree with his diagnosis that  Mohammad  was  a sick Arab and that his sickness resulted in islam.
It has been long known and acknowledged by Muslims and non Muslims alike that Mohammad suffered from frequent epileptic seizures. Only in recent times   Neurologists gathered enough clinical evidence about various forms of epilepsy  to categorically identify the type with which Mohammad was afflicted.
Well known Neourologist Dr Dede Korbut M.D. (1) studied Mohammad’s life and  his writings through Hadiths, Sira and Quran    confirmed that indeed Mohammad  had Temporal Lobe Epilepsy ( TLE) and  experienced Complex Partial Siezures(CPS ). He concluded that Islam was the  brain child of this  sick Arab.
Data from a large number of TLE/CPS patients  show that their brain defect results in the following abnormal behaviours and traits.
Obsessionalism:
This behavior causes ritualism, orderliness, compulsive attention to detail. Patient  carries out repetitive rituals. Mohammad   himself  practiced   wudu , salat and recitation of ayas  all  day and   made it  compulsory for all  the Muslims to do the same . Because of mental sickness of Mohammad all Muslims act as if they also have the same sickness  and keep repeating these senseless rituals all their lives.
Hydrocephalus:
The communicating cavities in the brainI of the patient  become  enlarged which distorts various brain structures   damaging  among other things , motor control brain cells. This anatomical distortion results in dementia, his motor control  and gait disturbance. The evidence for hudro cephalus in Mohammad  was the noted large size of his head and his gait which looked as if he is rushing down hill and his faulty   motor controls.
There is strong evidence that  Mohammad  had problem with his motor controls like shaking hands  and conrol while urinating. It seems that he leaked upon himself  while  urinating  and he  assumed it happens to all,  that is why he  required all to wash after urination and gave special instruction urination .  He also said that people  who do  not wash after urinatiom   burn in hell.
Aggresion:
CPS patients show disproportionate hostility, rage attacks, violent crimes,  brutality and  even  murders. Mohammad  showed all  these  traits  to   all extremes. He had 900 innocent Quraizans beheaded and personally raped the wife of the chief  teenager Rehana the same night.  After Khaybar raid  he  had Kinana , chief of Khaybar,  tortured to death and later  raped his 17 year old wife Safia.. He had Uraina tribesman   tortured to death   for stealing  some of his  camels which he  himself had  robbed from others..
Hypermoralism :
Attention to rules  with inability to distinguish significant from minor  infractions and desire to punish .
Mohammad  had  petty thief’s hands cut , had alcohol drinkers  whipped severely  ,had  his critics  beheaded and had apostates killed. He also prescribed death penalty for  criticizing him or his sayings..
Hypergraphia;
it is the expression of  viscosity in the written mode. Many evaluators of quran have superficially noted this without realizing it’s true neurological significance.  It is the defect in the temporal lobe causing reverberation  of memory tapes resulting in continuous repetitions , incoherence, endlessly drawn out laws, exhortations,protestations  ,proclamations and  unnecessary excessive verbage .
Religiosity:
It is a demonstrable fact that CPS patients exhibit an inordinate   interest  in religious matters.CPS patient thinks that he is getting messages from God. As modern medical research has shown that these messages are simply fresh associations produced by the unconscious workings on things which have been seen or heard  before but forgotten . Through faulty wiring the defective brain network  produces new productions.
Humourless Sobriety
Another aspect of personality dysfunction in CPS patients is a humourless  and overly determined attitude of sobriety. A sense of humour is lacking.  Mohammad had any one making fun of his rules killed in cold blood.
Paranoia:
Paranoia is a prevalent feature  of a CPS patient. Many CPS patients have grandoise ideation  when in fact they are not. Mohammad thought that  he was actually God’s equal  . Quran  says “obey Allah and obey Mohammed  over 40 times and once said  “obeying  Mohammad is obeying Allah” (4.80)
The messenger of God claimants  cannot tolerate any  competition in their status.. He  mentioned that Allah created world for him and that he will be sitting with God on the judgement day and will be able to do intercession for any one he wanted. In his story of shab e  Meiraj  he claimed to have  lead prayer of all prophets  and then  went to the 7th heaven to meet Allah personally, a priviledge only given to mohammed.
Cognitive Dissonance
It is a  another known attribute of CPS patients. This term means logical inconsistency, a thought production in which mutually contradictory ideas are held. The reason is that the temporal lobe of the patient is  defective and abnormal. Glaring contradictions in his life  as well as in  Quran and Hadiths are proof of  Mohammad’s cognitive dissonance. He  himself robbed for living but had the hands of petty thiefs cut.  He raped  the wives and daughters of his jihad victims but  prescribed death penalty for  adultery.He demanded Muslims to earn honest living but himself indulged in dishonest  earnings. At one place he writes in Quran “there is no compulsion in religion” ,another place  he writes “slay the infidels unless they convert to slam”.  At one place he writes “to you your religion and to me my religion” and another place he writes “only Islam is acceptable”
Faulty Memory:
Temporal Lobe Epilepsy patients (CPS) have very inferior memory recall system. That is exactly what happenened when he recalled the material he had heard from Jewish Christian sources and put it in Quran. He got all the material mixed up and  wrote very corrupted version of the original  biblical stories. When Christians and Jews asked why   the  narrations of the same stories differ in Quran , he  accused that bible is corrupted.

Muhammad and Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (TLE)

By Ali Sina

The Physical Effects of Muhammad's Ecstatic Experiences:
Here is how Muhammad described his mystical experiences:
'The Revelation is always brought to me by an angel: sometimes it is delivered to me as the beating sound of the bell--and this is the hardest experience for me; but sometimes the angel appears to me in the shape of a human and speaks to me.' [40]
'Those who saw the Prophet (pbuh) in this state relate that his condition would change. Sometimes he would stay motionless as if some terribly heavy load was pressed on him and, even in the coldest day, drops of sweat would fall from his forehead[41] At other times he would move his lips.
Ibn Sa'd says, "at the moment of inspiration, anxiety pressed upon the Prophet, and his countenance was troubled" [1]
"He fell to the ground like one intoxicated or overcome by sleep; and in the coldest day his forehead would be bedewed with large drops ofperspiration.  Inspiration descended unexpectedly, and without any previous warning." [2]
"Then Allah's Apostle returned with that experience; and the muscles between his neck and shoulders were trembling till he came upon Khadija (his wife) and said, "Cover me!" They covered him, and when the state of fear was over" [3] and [4]
All these are symptoms of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. The following is a partial list of the Temporal Lobe Seizure Symptoms & Signs as defined in  health.allrefer.com 
  • Hallucinations or illusions such as hearing voices when no one has spoken, seeing patterns, lights, beings or objects that aren't there
  • Rhythmic muscle contraction  Muscle cramps are involuntary and often painful contractions of the muscles which produce a hard, bulging muscle
  •  Abdominal pain or discomfort.
  • Sudden, intense emotion such as fear.
  •  Muscle twitching (fasciculation) is the result of spontaneous local muscle contractions that are involuntary and typically only affect individual muscle groups. This twitching does not cause pain.
  • Abnormal mouth behaviors
  • Abnormal head movements
  •  Sweating
  •  Flushed face
  •  Rapid heart rate/pulse
  • Changes in vision, speech, thought, awareness, personality 
  • Loss of memory (amnesia) regarding events around the seizure (partial complex seizure) 
All the above symptoms were present in Muhammad during the moments that he was allegedly receiving revelations.
  • He had visions (hallucinations) of seeing an angel or a light and of hearing voices.
  • He experienced bodily spasms and excruciating abdominal pain and discomfort
  • He was overwhelmed by sudden emotions of anxiety and fear
  • He had twitching in his neck muscles
  • He had uncontrollable lip movement
  • He sweated even during cold days.
  • His face flushed. His countenance was troubled.
  • He had rapid heart palpitation
  • He had loss of memory. (There is a tradition that states Muhammad was bewitched and used to think that he had sexual relations with his wives when he actually had not. [5]
It is also interesting to note that Muhammad's hallucination was not limited to seeing the Angel Gabriel but he also claimed seeing Jinns and even in one occasion while praying in the mosque he started struggling with an imaginary person and later said "Satan came in front of me and tried to interrupt my prayer, but Allah gave me an upper hand on him and I choked him. No doubt, I thought of tying him to one of the pillars of the mosque till you get up in the morning and see him. Then I remembered the statement of Prophet Solomon, 'My Lord ! Bestow on me a kingdom such as shall not belong to any other after me.' Then Allah made him (Satan) return with his head down (humiliated)." [6]
Muhammad's belief in Satan was such that he seemed to think that not even he is immune from his whisperings. [7]
One of the embarrassing events in Muhammad's life occurred when Satan put words in his mouth.
Tabari says: �When the messenger of God saw how his tribe turned their backs on him and was grieved to see them shunning the message he had brought to them from God, he longed in his soul that something would come to him from God which would reconcile him with his tribe. With his love for his tribe and his eagerness for their welfare it would have delighted him if some of the difficulties which they made for him could have been smoothed out, and he debated with himself and fervently desired such an outcome. Then God revealed:
"By the Star when it sets, your comrade does not err, nor is he deceived; nor does he speak out of (his own) desire..."
and when he came to the words:
Have you thought upon al-Lat and al-Uzza and Manat, the third, the other?
Satan cast on his tongue, because of his inner debates and what he desired to bring to his people, the words:
"These are the high flying cranes; verily their intercession is accepted with approval.
The Quraysh left delighted by the mention of their gods. Amity was restored and the news of that reached the followers of Muhmmad who at his behest had migrated to Abyssina and some of them returned. Muhammad realizing the consequence of this is giving up on his monopoly on God and the contradiction that it entails, claimed those verses and his Allah consoled him saying, 'Never did We send a messenger or a prophet before thee, but, when he framed a desire, Satan threw some (vanity) into his desire: but Allah will cancel anything (vain) that Satan throws in, and Allah will confirm (and establish) His Signs: for Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom': 22:52  [8]
In the Quran there are several mentions of Jinns. Surah 72 narrates a conversation between Jinns where they comment about the Quran, call it 'a wonderful Recital' and convert to Islam. Their role is described as prying into the secrets of heaven and eavesdropping to the conversation of the exalted assembly. Which since the apparition of Muhammad, they found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires. 'We used, indeed, to sit there in (hidden) stations, to (steal) a hearing;" Quran quotes one Jinn saying to others, "but any who listen now will find a flaming fire watching him in ambush. And we understand not whether ill is intended to those on earth, or whether their Lord (really) intends to guide them to right conduct".
It is not difficult to see that Muhammad suffered from Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. In fact TLE was just one of his ailments. The prophet suffered from other mental disorders and physical complications. I will speak about them in future. The real miracle is in the fact that a billion people follow a sick man for so long.

Further studies:



Background: Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) was defined in 1985 by the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) as a condition characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures originating from the medial or lateral temporal lobe. The seizures associated with TLE consist of simple partial seizures without loss of awareness (with or without aura) and complex partial seizures (ie, with loss of awareness). The individual loses awareness during a complex partial seizure because the seizure spreads to involve both temporal lobes, which causes impairment of memory.
TLE was first recognized in 1881 by John Hughlings Jackson, who described "uncinate fits" and the 'dreamy state." In the 1940s, Gibbs et al introduced the term "psychomotor epilepsy." The international classification of epileptic seizures (1981) replaced the term psychomotor seizures with complex partial seizures. The ILAE classification of the epilepsies uses the term temporal lobe epilepsy and divides the etiologies into cryptogenic (presumed unidentified etiology), idiopathic (genetic), and symptomatic (cause known, eg, tumor).
Pathophysiology: Hippocampal sclerosis is the most common pathologic finding in TLE. Hippocampal sclerosis involves hippocampal cell loss in the CA1 and CA3 regions and the dentate hilus. The CA2 region is relatively spared.
For more information, see Pathophysiology in the article Seizures and Epilepsy: Overview and Classification.
Frequency:
In the US: Approximately 50% of patients with epilepsy have partial epilepsy. Partial epilepsy is often of temporal lobe origin. However, the true prevalence of TLE is not known, since not all cases of presumed TLE are confirmed by video-EEG and most cases are classified by clinical history and interictal EEG findings alone. The temporal lobe is the most epileptogenic region of the brain. In fact, 90% of patients with temporal interictal epileptiform abnormalities on their EEG have a history of seizures.History:
  • Aura
    • Auras occur in approximately 80% of temporal lobe seizures. They are a common feature of simple partial seizures and usually precede complex partial seizures of temporal lobe origin.
    • Auras may be classified by symptom type; the types comprise somatosensory, special sensory, autonomic, or psychic symptoms.
  • Somatosensory and special sensory phenomena
    • Olfactory and gustatory illusions and hallucinations may occur. Acharya et al found that olfactory auras are associated more commonly with temporal lobe tumors than with other causes of TLE.
    • Auditory hallucinations consist of a buzzing sound, a voice or voices, or muffling of ambient sounds. This type of aura is more common with neocortical TLE than with other types of TLE.
    • Patients may report distortions of shape, size, and distance of objects.
    • These visual illusions are unlike the visual hallucinations associated with occipital lobe seizure in that no formed elementary visual image is noted, such as the visual image of a face that may be seen with seizures arising from the fusiform or the inferior temporal gyrus.
    • Things may appear shrunken (micropsia) or larger (macropsia) than usual.
    • Tilting of structures has been reported. Vertigo has been described with seizures in the posterior superior temporal gyrus.
  • Psychic phenomena
    • Patients may have a feeling of deja vu or jamais vu, a sense of familiarity or unfamiliarity, respectively.
    • Patients may experience depersonalization (ie, feeling of detachment from oneself) or derealization (ie, surroundings appear unreal).
    • Fear or anxiety usually is associated with seizures arising from the amygdala.
    • Patients may describe a sense of dissociation or autoscopy, in which they report seeing their own body from outside.
  • Autonomic phenomena are characterized by changes in heart rate, piloerection, and sweating. Patients may experience an epigastric "rising" sensation or nausea.
Physical:
  • Following the aura, a temporal lobe complex partial seizure begins with a wide-eyed, motionless stare, dilated pupils, and behavioral arrest. Oral alimentary automatisms such as lip smacking, chewing, and swallowing may be noted. Manual automatisms or unilateral dystonic posturing of a limb also may be observed.
  • Patients may continue their ongoing motor activity or react to their surroundings in a semipurposeful manner (ie, reactive automatisms). They can have repetitive stereotyped manual automatisms.
  • A complex partial seizure may evolve to a secondarily generalized tonic-clonic seizure.
  • Patients usually experience a postictal period of confusion, which distinguishes TLE from absence seizures, which are not associated with postictal confusion. In addition, absence seizures are not associated with complex automatisms. Postictal aphasia suggests onset in the language-dominant temporal lobe.
  • Most auras and automatisms last a very short period, seconds or 1-2 minutes. The postictal phase may last for a longer period (several minutes). By definition, amnesia occurs during a complex partial seizure because of bilateral hemispheric involvement.
Causes:
  • Approximately two thirds of patients with TLE treated surgically have hippocampal sclerosis as the pathologic substrate.
  • The etiologies of TLE include the following:
    • Past infections, eg, herpes encephalitis or bacterial meningitis
    • Trauma producing contusion or hemorrhage that results in encephalomalacia or cortical scarring
    • Hamartomas
    • Gliomas
    • Vascular malformations (ie, arteriovenous malformation, cavernous angioma)
    • Cryptogenic: A cause is presumed but has not been identified.
    • Idiopathic (genetic): This is rare. Familial TLE was described by Berkovic and colleagues, and partial epilepsy with auditory features was described by Scheffer and colleagues.
  • Hippocampal sclerosis produces a clinical syndrome called mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE). MTLE begins in late childhood, then remits, but reappears in adolescence or early adulthood in a refractory form.
Febrile seizures: The association of simple febrile seizure with TLE has been controversial. However, a subset of children with complex febrile convulsions appear to be at risk of developing TLE in later life. Complex febrile seizures are febrile seizures that last longer than 15 minutes, have focal features, or recur within 24 hours.
