Al-Quran and Science....150 Kinds of germs on the hand palm

150 Kinds of germs on the hand palm

A study confirms that the human skin, especially the hand palm, contain many kinds of germs which differs between men and women …

A new study conducted by a team of researchers from University of Colorado at Boulder in USA discovered that the hand palms of women have wide spectrum of different germs comparing to the hand palms of men and that the hands of human beings attract large numbers of bacteria much more than what was used before. Moreover, added that a total of 150 kinds of germs and microorganisms live on the hand palms of the normal person in both men and women.

The other attention drawing matter revealed by the study is that both left and right palms of the same person are having only 17% of the same germs and bacteria. Dr. ferrer explained the higher diversity detected in the women palms by referring to the fact that men tend to have more acidic skin which forms more hard and repellant environment for the germs. Presence of differences in other aspects like perspiration, oil glands and hormones production are contributing factors in attracting or repelling germs...
What benefits can we obtain from this study?

1. Washing hands is essential to get rid of some types of germs, noting that there are types of germs that are beneficial to the human being. So, have ablution several times a day permits removal of large number of germs and what remains will be beneficial to the man because Allah, all praises to Him, chose a natural system for protecting us by creating useful and harmful bacteria. In another search, the scientists verified that merely washing hands several times daily contribute in removal of many harmful germs from the skin.

Ablution is the washing of hands, face and foots which means washing the exposed and most vulnerable parts to germs clusters. This make us realize a new wisdom of ablution which is that Allah, the Almighty wanted us to keep our health and stay away from different diseases as with every ablution there is considerable number of germs and viruses are removed from hands, mouth, face, nose and legs.

2. The result of this study reminds me with a noble verse in which Allah, the Almighty says: "And the male is not like the female" (36: Al Imran). I should say glory to Allah that created males and females different from each other even in the kinds of germs living on their skin, see how precise are these divine expressions as everything is different between males and females then how they can be equal while Allah, the Almighty, created them different?

3. There is a remark, to which one of the honorable brothers brought my attention, which worth mentioning, that the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, used to put his hand when he yawn, of course not the palm of the hand but the other side where the number of germs is less because the surface of the hand is more exposed to air and less used than the palm of the hand, this might have scientific wisdom and Allah is the best knower.

"Glory be to You, we have no knowledge except what you have taught us. Verily, it is You, the All-Knower, the All-Wise."
