I am sharing this wonderful  email post ..by a friend about Camel.

 Our Beloved Prophet Mohammed [Peace be upon Him]  kept His camel’s name “Qaswa” which means in Arabic ‘to cover long distance’. 

As a Blessing of this name, Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wassalam] traveled with his Camel Qaswa  long distance. He migrated [Hijraa] to Madinah  from Makkah riding on Qaswa.

                                              The Amazing Camel
Then do they not look at the Camels -
 how they are Created ?
'Qur'aan' ~Soorah Al-Ghāshiyah

[The Overwhelming]

Meet the Very Technical, Highly Engineered Dromedary Camel.

When I'm hungry, I'll eat almost anything-

A leather bridle, a piece of rope, my master's tent,

Or a pair of shoes.

My mouth is so tough a thorny cactus doesn't bother it.

I love to chow down grass and other plants

That grow here on the Arabian desert

I'm a dromedary camel, the one-hump kind

That lives on hot deserts in the Middle East.

My hump, all eighty pounds of it,

Is filled with fat-my body fuel -- not water as some people believe.

My Mighty Maker gave it to me because

He knew I wouldn't always be able to find food

As I travel across the hot sands.

When I don't find any chow, my body automatically

Takes fat from the hump, feeds my system,

And keeps me going strong.

This is my emergency food supply.

If I can't find any plants to munch, my body uses up my hump.

When the hump gets smaller, it starts to tip to one side.

But when I get to a nice oasis and begin to eat again,

My hump soon builds back to normal.  

I've been known to drink twenty-seven gallons of water in ten minutes.

My Master Designer made me in such a fantastic way that

In a matter of minutes all the water I've swallowed

Travels to the billions of microscopic cells that make up my flesh.

Naturally, the water I swallow first goes into my stomach.  

There thirsty blood vessels absorb and carry it to every part of my body.

Scientists have tested my stomach and found it empty

Ten minutes after I've drunk twenty gallons.  

In an eight hour day, I can carry a four hundred pound load

A hundred miles across a hot, dry desert

And not stop once for a drink or something to eat.

In fact, I've been known to go eight days without a drink,

But then I look like a wreck.

I lose 227 pounds, my ribs show through my skin,

And I look terribly skinny.

But I feel great!

I look thin because the billions of cells lose their water.

They're no longer fat.

They're flat.

Normally my blood contains 94 percent water, just like yours.

But when I can't find any water to drink,

The heat of the sun gradually robs a little water out of my blood.

Scientists have found that

My blood can lose up to 40 percent of its water,

And I'm still healthy.  


Doctor's say human blood has to stay very close to 94 percent water.

If you lose 5 percent of it, you can't see anymore;

10 percent, you can't hear and you go insane;

12 percent, your blood is as thick as molasses

And your heart can't pump the thick stuff.

It stops, and you're dead.

But that's not true with me.


Scientists say my blood is different.

My red cells are elongated.

Yours are round.

Maybe that's what makes the difference

This proves I'm designed for the desert,

Or the desert is designed for me.

Did you ever hear of a design without a Designer?  

After I find a water hole,

I'll drink for about ten minutes

And my skinny body starts to change almost immediately.

In that short time my body fills out nicely,

I don't look skinny anymore,

And I gain back the 227 pounds I lost.

Even though I lose a lot of water on the desert,

My body conserves it too.

Way in the beginning when my Intelligent Engineer made me,

He gave me a specially designed nose that saves water.

When I exhale, I don't lose much.

My nose traps that warm, moist air from my lungs

And absorbs it in my nasal membranes.

Tiny blood vessels in those membranes take that back into my blood.

How's that for a recycling system? Pretty cool, isn't it.

It works because my nose is cool.

My cool nose changes that warm moisture in the air

From my lungs into water.

But how does my nose get cool?

I breath in hot dry desert air,

And it goes through my wet nasal passages.

This produces a cooling effect, and my nose stays as much as

18 degrees cooler than the rest of my body.  


I love to travel the beautiful sand dunes.

It's really quite easy, because

My Creator gave me specially engineered sand shoes for feet.

My hooves are wide, and they get even wider when I step on them.

Each foot has two long, bony toes

with tough, leathery skin between my soles,

My feet are a little like webbed feet.

They won't let me sink into the soft, drifting sand.

This is good, because often my master wants me to carry him

one hundred miles across the desert in just one day.

(I troop about ten miles per hour.)

Sometimes a big windstorm comes out of nowhere,

bringing flying sand with it.

My Master Designer put special muscles in my nostrils

that close the openings, keeping sand out of my nose

but still allowing me enough air to breathe.

My eyelashes arch down over my eyes like screens,

keeping the sand and sun out but still letting me see clearly.

If a grain of sand slips through and gets in my eye,

the Creator took care of that too.

He gave me an inner eyelid that automatically

wipes the sand off my eyeball just like a windshield wiper.  

Some people think I'm conceited because I always walk around

with my head held high and my nose in the air.

But that's just because of the way I'm made.

My eyebrows are so thick and bushy.

 Sub haan Allaah!

“And they carry your heavy loads..... ”

Researchers say that ancient man was characterized by amazing discoveries that we perceive today as ordinary such as the discovery of the significance of camels and horses as means of transportation that aided man to develop his life and increase the level of welfare. The holy Qur’an talks about their significance and says that Allah, the omniscient created these creatures and subjected them for man. Scientists are amazed at the extraordinary capacities of camels in walking within extremely difficult conditions which even modern technology fails to achieve. Allah, the creator supplied camels with filters to filter air from the atoms of sand in addition to thermal protectors that protect them from the heat of the desert. Besides, Allah, the almighty made camels capable of bearing thirst and provided them with amazing capacities to carry heavy weights for long distances. Allah, the exalted says in the holy Qur’an:

And they carry your heavy loads to lands that ye could not (otherwise) reach except with souls distressed: for your Lord is indeed Most Kind, Most Merciful,” Nahl or Bees: 16: 7

All glory to Allah.
