Creating Waves of Awareness

Samuel Hahnemann Founder of Homeopathy Was A Muslim?

“ Certainly my prayers, my sacrifices, my life, my death dedicated to Allah Rabbul Al-Ameen ” says Al Quran,
Hahnemann says that in his life he has never sought any recognition, his works for the benefit of mankind are dedicated to the supreme creator ( vide-Life and Works of Hahnemann by Richard Raehl , page-355, part-one).

It is known to all that during June 1835 Hahnemann accompanied by his second wife Melanie D’Hervilly migrated to France and he never returned or re-visited his birth place or country Germany, the actual reason remained a mystery for centuries by courtesy of the narrow communal feelings of the west. It all started during his early student life, that he developed a skill in mastering in foreign languages, by 1777 he was able to speak and write German, Latin, Greek, English and Spanish , and a born scholar Hahnemann in one stage of his life learned Arabic to know the revolution in medicine during the golden era of Islam as a part of his quest for knowledge of Ancient history of Medicine , the quotes given in Arabic in his Lesser Writings : collected by R.E.Dudgeon , pages 571, 579 etc. proves his indepth knowledge in Arabic. Peter Morrel described how Hahnemann is indebted to Alchemy for his invention : Homeopathy, and that
period was the golden era of Alchemy in Arab. And Hahnemann a born researcher was in quest for panacea for health.
And that’s not all, the influence of the great philosopher Mohammed was so impressive to him that at one moment he read Kalema from the holy Quran and became muslim by religious faith. As this news spread amongst his family and friends , they became much aggressive towards him, even it is believed he received life threats and ultimatum has been given to stop promotion of his holistic invention Homeopathy. Hence, Hahnemann distributed amongst his family members all his moveable and unmoveable properties and migrated to France at the age of eighty years and two months. His first name Samuel is actually the name of an Israeli Prophet , which he adopted and used throughout after his migration to France, thereafter he never used his first name Christian Frederich. It is however difficult to ascertain whether he has been converted by the said Israeli Prophet or anybody else or he in his quest for truth adopted Islam himself.

There is a large collection of books, clothes,utensils,etc.used by hahnemann kept at the Hahnemann Museum, Pauis Palace, Great Ormond Street, London, WBUC, U.K., amongst his used clothes , noticeable items are beautifully designed Jaynamaz ( piece of thick silk cloth used as carpet during Namaz (Prayer), Tasbih (garland) made of semi- precious stones, one Turkish cap, the Jayanamaz bears clear marks of continous use, his collection of books include Al Quran.

The points which deserves attention are:

1. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in his writings never used the term Trinity which is the rockbed of Christianity , but used the term Creator .

2 In the book ‘Samuel Hahnemann- His Life and Works’ by Richard Raehl Vol-2, page-
389 , there is a copy of a letter addressed by Hahnemann to one of his patients , it says, “ We feel then we are resting in the friendship of the Only One. Do you desire any other religion ? There is none. Everything else is a miserable low human conception full of superstition a true destruction to humanity ” . In another letter in the same page of the above book the following is written: “ I acknowledge with sincere thankfulness the infinite mercy of the One great giver of all good ”.

The Ultimate Proof

Page No. 245 of the Journal “ Allgem Anzeig Der Deutsehen ( Vol XII No.6 ) which is kept at the British Museum, Great Russell Street, WC1B 3DG reveals that due to the instructions in the Will of Hahnemann , Madam Melanie invited only muslims in the burial ceremony of the body of Hahnemann and to search for muslim people she waited for long 9 days after the death of Hahnemann. Hahnemann died on July 2, 1843 but buried on July 11, 1843 at the less known Cemetery of Mount Maratry.

P.S.: The British Museum( and the Hahnemann Museum(website not found) may be contacted direct for any verification,I have just put together some facts, for the community, after all we have every rights to know the TRUE biography of our Master.
I have tried to contact the present successor of Hahnemann family connected to one Homeopathy Institute of U.K.,for comments, but failed to trace the e mail address or telephone number.
Any HWC member could help?

The above was a reply from Prof.Dr. Martin Dinges /span>martin.dinges@igm-bos> on asking LMHI the highest organization for the Homoeopaths worldwide.

Dear Dr. Bidyut Bhushon Dhar,

The idea that Hahnemann converted to Islam is wishful thinking of a propagandist without any historical proof neither probability. This has absolutely nothing to do with the historical reality.

Best regards

 Recently AIHC-2012 held in Science City Auditorium during 21-23 December-2012, where Hahnemann's  7th Generation member Charles Tankard Hahnemann was present physically. Me asked the question. He clearly said its just a speculative imagination of a group of people.

Okay all friends. We went off on tangents and the benefit of this dialogue was learning some history of homeopathy [homoeopathy] and now on to the life of contemporary homeopathy. There is a struggle for survival amongst the nations of the world. Those who want to "suppress" homeopathy into oblivion and not let it see the light of day.

We know this is a fractal of the entire 'health' picture. One where drugs suppresses the vital force, natural spirit to evolve and move to clear whatever is the disturbance or disorder in each individual. It is a fight for freedom of choice in healthcare. Now, we must unify and find ways to be heard.

On this i endorse you 100%;;;;
Comment by Vaikunthanath das Kaviraj. on October 23, 2009 at 12:40pm
Dr Wequar,

I agree. very interesting but non-essential. On the other hand, philosophy is a large part of homoeopathy beacuse it tells us the Art of Healing is Divine. So now it is time to get back to the Art and Heal.

As Hahnemann says:

1. The physician’s high and only mission is to heal the sick, to cure as it is termed.
Comment by Dr. Wequar Ali Khan on October 23, 2009 at 12:36pm
To all our friends on HWC,i think its time to call it a day on this interesting but contentious subject,and move on to more practical and pragmatic subject and problems confronting us.

Debby i appreciate your quote:

As for me, there is the "Only One" who is all-knowing, all-powerful, all-time and cannot be spoken of in human terms.
Comment by Prof Dr Debasish Kundu on October 21, 2009 at 10:24pm
Thanks to Dr.Kabiraj and Dr.Hans for their valuable notes
Comment by Vaikunthanath das Kaviraj. on October 21, 2009 at 4:56pm
Dear Hans,

To me the soul is the spirit, hence my use of the term - no religiosity intended. But i appreciate your comment. It might be a better term to use, to avoid misunderstanding.

"He deliberately did not want to use terminology in the Organon which takes its meaning from religious context and is otherwise used in religious circles."

More indications that he was a Mason - they religiously avoid religious terms (pun intended).
Comment by Hans Weitbrecht on October 21, 2009 at 4:46pm
Dear Members, dear kavi

Interesting few lines from kavi, which I cannot pass uncommented.

Throughout those paragraphs (9 -12) Hahnemann avoids to use the term SEELE =SOUL.

Instead he used GEIST (-artige) which translates to SPIRIT (- like).

He deliberately did not want to use terminology in the Organon which takes its meaning from religious context and is otherwise used in religious circles.
