Caliph Al-Hakim of Muslim Spain,who created a Library of 400,000 Books,was Not a Muslim since he was an Openly Practicing Homosexual
In Muslim history there are 2 famous caliphs called Al-Hakim:
1.The Al-Hakim of Egypt,read:
“Al-Hakim,Caliph of Egypt,Destroyer of the Most Holy Church in Christianty,the Holy Sepulchre Church in Jerusalem”
2.And caliph Al-Hakim of Muslim Spain.
Who was Al-Hakim II (915-976)(Al-Hakim means “the Wise”)?
1.He was the second Caliph of Al-Andalus,or Muslim Spain and Portugal,whose capital city was Cordoba.The caliphate of Al-Andalsus had been created in 929 by his father Abd-ar-Rahman III.Abd-ar-Rahman means “Slave of the Merciful/Compassionate”,referring to Allah.Al-Hakim ruled from 961 to 976.
2.He kept peace with the Christian kingdoms of northern Iberia, and developed agriculture by the construction of irrigation works. Economic development was encouraged through the widening of streets and the building of markets.
3.His building works included an expansion of the main mosque of Cordoba (962–966), the Mezquita, and the completion of the palace called Medina Azahara (976), which Abd-ar-Rahman III had begun in 936.The Medina Azahara was,from the description of visitors,an astonishingly magnificent palace outside Cordoba.
4.He founded 27 public schools where education was free for the poor and orphans.
Al-Hakim was homosexual
His homosexuality was public.How do we know?It was because the caliph had a male harem,that is to say a group of men slaves that he used for sex,in effect,for raping men.
He was different from his father Abd-ar-Rahman III who had a harem of around 5,000 female sex slaves,non-Muslim women,Christian women.
Therefore Al-Hakim,as a practicing and open homosexual, was not a Muslim since the Koran condemns homosexuality
“And Lot, when he said to his people:”What, do you commit such indecency as never any being in all the world committed before you?
See, you approach men lustfully instead of women; no, you are a people that do exceed.”
And the only answer of his people was that they said:”Expel them from your city; surely they are folk that keep themselves clean!” So We delivered him and his family, except his wife; she was one of those that tarried. And We rained down upon them a rain; so behold, how was the end of the sinners!”
“What, do you come to male beings, leaving your wives that your Lord created for you? No, but you are a people of transgressors.”
Al-Hakim was the creator of the biggest library in Europe
He was a lover of books and learning, and amassed a vast library with 400,000 books,which may be an exaggeration,but the library was enormous all the same.He sent agents to purchase the latest books from all the Muslim world
The chroniclers say he had an atelier of 170 women who copied books for him. And the 2 most famous copyists were women,one called Lubna,the other Fatima.
During his reign, a massive translation effort was done, and many books were translated from Latin and Greek into Arabic. He formed a committee of Arab Muslims and Iberian Mozarab Christians for this task.
Al-Hakim paid a writer 1,000 gold coins for a copy of his book
It was given to Abu al-Faraj al-Isfahani (897–967),an Iranian scholar who collected Arab poems and songs in his book “Kitāb al-Aghānī/Book of Songs”.
It is an encyclopedic collection of poems and songs that runs to over 20 volumes,it took 50 years to write it and had 10,000 pages.The poems and songs are from pre-Islamic Arabia till the poems and songs in Arabic in the 9th century.It has biographies which makes the book even more important.
Al-Hakim was Patron of Abulcasis, the Father of Modern Surgery
1.Abu al-Qasim Al-Zahrawi (936–1013) known in the West as Abulcasis, was an Muslim physician from Al-Andalus. He is considered the greatest surgeon of the Middle Ages.
2.He was the court physician of Al-Hakam II.
The book by Abulcasis which makes him the Father of Modern Surgery
It is the Kitab al-Tasrif, a thirty-volume encyclopedia of medical practices.His contributions to the field of surgical procedures and instruments had an enormous impact in the East and West well into the modern period, where some of his discoveries are still applied in medicine to this day.
It was completed in the year 1000,and is about many medical topics, including dentistry and childbirth, containing information accumulated during almost 50 years of medical training, teaching and practice. In it he also wrote of the importance of a positive doctor-patient relationship and wrote affectionately of his students, who he referred to as “my children”. He also emphasized the importance of treating patients irrespective of their social status.
What Kitab al-Tasrif contains
1.He was the first physician to describe an ectopic pregnancy.
2.And the first to identify the hereditary nature of hemophilia.
3.He described both what would later became known as “Kocher’s method” for treating a dislocated shoulder and “Walcher position” in obstetrics.
4.He described how to ligature blood vessels almost 600 years before Ambroise Paré (1510- 1590).
5.The book was the first recorded book to document several dental devices.
6.He was also the first to describe a surgical procedure for ligating the temporal artery for migraine, also almost 600 years before Paré recorded that he had ligated his own temporal artery for headache that conforms to current descriptions of migraine.Abulcasis was the first to describe the migraine surgery procedure that is enjoying a revival in the 21st century, spearheaded by Elliot Shevel a South African surgeon.
7.He also described the use of forceps in vaginal deliveries.
8.He introduced over 200 surgical instruments.Many of these instruments were never used before by any previous surgeons.
9.His use of catgut for internal stitching is still practised in modern surgery. The catgut appears to be the only natural substance capable of dissolving and is acceptable by the body.
How a homosexual caliph was convinced to sleep with a woman to produce an heir to the caliphate
Al-Hakim used a Christian girl who was a slave of his. She is known as Subh/Sobeya and she was Basque.To be able to have intercourse so she could become pregnant:
1.She was given a man’s name.Her new name was Jafar.
2.And she dressed as a man so Al-Hakim would could pretend he was sleeping with a man instead of a woman.
It was in such fashion that she later gave birth to 2 sons.
