ALLAHUMMA SWALLI ALA SAYYIDNIA MUHAMMADIN WA ALA AALI SAYYIDINA MUHAMMADIN WA SALLIM
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani-Sulthanul Awliya always warn his followers:Do not go for Scanning for pregnancy”.
Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim
“If you are getting pregnant, don’t go to doctor. It is dangerous, because they are bringing to me everyday children with handicap.
‘Oh Shaykh, look outside’ … (even) in their same hearts (a holes –Maulana moves hands resembling the image of a hole in heart of the baby). So many things that it is giving trouble to people. Therefore don’t go. It is a big sin. Pregnant woman only go to midwife.
We are never accepting. Prophet –saaws- never accepting, Allah Almighty is angry (on) whom they are making this (Maulana makes gestures with hands of scans of ultrasound) … laser, very dangerous.
Therefore it is my will (advise) to you, don’t send your wife.
Only when your wife saying that she is pregnant, one (can make qurban) for the honor of Abdul Qadir Jilani (qs) and Nafisa al Tahira (qs). You know Jilani also. Make it and give to poor people. And daily put on her two taawiz, one for her, one for her baby. They are responsible to complete that baby through womb of his mommy, Hazreti Jilani and Nafisa al Tahira. Two taawiz.
(Maulana gives two nakshibendi taawiz to the woman) Put this, one for you and one for your baby. (And) When baby comes, put on him this (one tawiz).
And daily, two sadaqa. One for her, one for the child.
Don’t worry, ok? No need for doctor. I am fighting with such a doctors”.

And What Science says about Scanning, for those who want proof for the actions and words of the Saints of Allah
Ultrasound – More powerful, more dangerous, more unethical
By Jean Robinson
AIMS Journal, Winter 1999/2000, Vol 11 No 4
When Professor Stuart Campbell says he is worried about the way ultrasound is being used on unborn children we should listen. Hitherto he has been the great apologist and defender – oft quoted in the press as saying it has been used on millions of babies and there is no evidence of harm (a claim which AIMS has strongly disputed, of course.)
However, recently he and Dr Platt his co-editor of a specialist journal on ultrasound were faced with a dilemma.  Two studies were submitted on early human embryos, and the most powerful forms of ultrasound – pulsed and colour Doppler – had been used. [2,3] These create intensities many times higher than normal scans. And, as we already know, when the probe is inserted into the vagina, as in this case, the ultrasound does not have to go through the wall of abdomen, which absorbs some of the energy. The journal had previously published studies where pulsed Doppler was used at 11-14 weeks gestation, but when it came down to 10 weeks it seems the editors became concerned.
The editors admit there is “a serious lack of experimental data on the effects on the fetus of colour and pulsed Doppler ultrasound when performed transvaginally in the first trimester.” (In fact there is no adequate information on long term effects on the human embryo or fetus of ultrasound exposure via the mother’s vagina or of exposure to colour and pulsed Doppler at any stage of pregnancy). And these were being used before 10 weeks gestation when the organs were not even formed. Please note that this was non-therapeutic research – there was no way it was going to benefit the mothers or babies concerned.
Was it ethical for the journal to publish the studies? They consulted their large international editorial board. Two members thought that such research should only be done if the woman was going to have an abortion. A third agreed, but said Doppler could be used if it was of proven clinical value.
But in that case, said the editors, how would doctors be able to find out if early studies could predict later problems in pregnancy? (Not that there is any early treatment for such problems, of course, even if they can be predicted, and the track record for benefits of later ultrasound is poor, as our readers will know)
The editors have therefore evolved an “ethical policy” for future publication. It includes “informed patient consent” – and the patient information sheet is to be submitted to the journal. May we suggest they actually publish the information so we can all see it? Since there is, at the moment no information on what happens to children exposed as tiny embryos to the most powerful forms of diagnostic ultrasound, it will be intriguing to see what women are to be told. It is far from reassuring to see a piece in the same issue by Chervenak (one of the editorial board) and McCullough, both ultrasound experts, simply saying “Pregnant women should be assured that only appropriate power levels will be used in fetal Doppler ultrasound studies. They should also be informed that there are no documented risks to the fetus at such power levels, that the research may benefit her fetus or her.”  Appropriate for what and for whom? As a veteran member of three research ethics committees I don’t know whether to be surprised at their ignorance or amazed at their effrontery.
The research must be also approved by an ethics committee, say the editors. But that is standard procedure in any reputable medical journal anyway. The two studies they published were approved by local ethics committees in Finland and Philadelphia, whose members now have egg on their faces. In future the information provided to the ethics committee on safety must also be submitted to the journal So how come they did not ask for all this information before publishing the two studies? We suggest they publish that information too, especially since the consumer interpretation of risk often differs from Professor Campbell’s. 
Their future policy also includes insisting that the equipment must display the safety limits for the thermal index (TI) – how much the tissue may be heated – and the mechanical index (MI) – which refers to the force which can cause gas bubbles to be formed, stream and possibly damage tissue – and might show effects of radiation pressure. The embryo is submitted to a forward force every time a pulse passes through it. As medical physicist Dr Frances Duck points out, diagnostic Doppler ultrasound causes higher exposure than normal scans, and can heat soft tissue.  (From many human and animal studies we know that raised temperatures can cause abnormalities.)
In fact the TI is already known to be inadequate, because it does not estimate what happens to the tissues near the transducer. When ultrasound equipment is used in the oesophogaus, the transducers have a cut-out mechanism if they become too warm. Vaginal probes do not.
Frances Duck had already warned that the revised standards allowed since by the FDA since the early 1990s do not prevent the sale of excessively powerful machines. And now we don’t even know how powerful they are. The ultrasound power is measured by the waves it creates in water. After a certain point the water becomes saturated so higher power is simply not measurable by this method.
The future ethical code of the journal also insists that exposure times must be based on the ALARA principle (As Low as Reasonably Achievable) and that exposure times must be given. We do not find this reassuring. A radiographer would use the least and shortest exposure to X-ray a fetus – but we don’t X-ray the fetus at all unless it is absolutely necessary. Please note there was no unexposed control group in either study, and no plans are mentioned for follow up of the children.
What we find surprising is that neither study tells us how many of the babies were born alive, and in what condition.
48 women were studied in America; 60% of them had had ovulation induced. They had ultrasounds at 4-5 weeks, and then every two weeks until 13-14 weeks. Ten pregnancies miscarried before 13 weeks, having been involved in 27 studies, and the remaining 38 women had 145 examinations. We are told the surviving 38 pregnancies “progressed to term without any significant fetal complication or anomaly detected”. For all we know the babies could be dead, but “normal”. How odd that the editors did not require more detailed final data from such a meticulous study of the earliest fetal heartbeats. The authors show that the babies which miscarried were less likely to show early heart valve activity. Were these pregnancies destined to end, or were they the babies more vulnerable to ultrasound?
In the study from Ouolu, Finland, researchers looked at the development of the yolk sac in 16 women who had examinations at 5, 7, 8 and 10 weeks. They started with 20 but four were excluded because two pregnancies were outside the uterus, one was anembryonic and one was aneuploid. (We are not told at what stage the missing embryo or chromosome abnormality were detected.) The only information we get on outcome in the rest is “The course and the outcome of all pregnancies were uncomplicated.” So – did they go to term, what were their Apgar scores, did they spend time in intensive care, were they born alive, are they still alive? After providing us with copious information about blood flow in yolk sacs, surely the authors could spare a sentence to tell us what happened to the babies, and it is surprising the journal did not require it.
There is no doubt that these studies can come up with interesting scientific information. The question is, what price will some mothers and babies be paying to provide it – and how shall we ever know, when it’s only the powerless consumers who want to find out?
It is significant that one of the studies was done on women who had had fertility treatment. It is on this group that transvaginal probes and ultrasonic study of embryos began – these women were only too willing to agree to investigations they thought might help and give them early indication of pregnancy. Is it coincidence that outcome of such pregnancies – the most closely monitored of all – is so poor, with a high rate of both abnormalities and deaths?

Ultrasound scans may disrupt fetal brain development
Ultrasound examinations may disrupt normal brain development in unborn
Nearly 7000 had received ultrasonic scans in the womb, while 170,000 had not. Kieler found that of the men born between 1976 and 1978 who had ultrasonic scans in the womb, 32 per cent more than expected were left-handed. In an average population, around nine per cent of men are left-handed.
The scientists took account of factors such as premature birth, birth weight and maternal age, but admit that they cannot rule out post-natal environmental influences for the effect they found.
The results suggest that some men who genetically would have been expected to be born right-handed had actually grown up to be left-handed. Kieler says this could be due to a disruption of their brain development in the womb: “It’s commonly known among neuropsychiatrists that right-handed people can become left-handed by slight damage to the brain.”
She says it is significant that the effect was only found in men born in 1976 and later. That year, it became common in Sweden for expectant mothers to have two ultrasonic scans – one after 17 weeks of pregnancy and another after 37 weeks.
Currently in the UK, women typically have one or two ultrasonic scans during pregnancy, although more can be recommended to track a particular condition in the fetus.
In a study published in 1999, Kieler found that handedness of girls was not affected by ultrasound. The difference, she says, could be down to the way the brain develops in each sex.
“Brain development in males takes place over a longer period compared with the female, so there’s a wider window for external factors to have an effect,” she says.
How ultrasound could affect the brain is still a mystery though. Kieler suspects that a process called cavitation – where small bubbles in the body fluids vibrate in the ultrasonic waves – could influence brain development.
“In the early stage of pregnancy, neurons migrate from the centre of the brain and this could be disturbed by ultrasound, maybe by cavitation,” she says.
“This is a big gap in our knowledge,” says Duck. “If ultrasound is having this effect, we have to take it seriously, but right now, we just don’t know what is going on.”
Duck adds that ultrasonic scans are needed to track fetal development and to check for abnormalities. “It would be inappropriate for people to start cancelling their appointments, but this ought to act as a real stimulus for more work on this,” he says.

It is truly a sinister agenda to “to destroy the spirituality and natural lifestyle of human being during pregnancy itself. The materialist atheist world expects human being to be like “Robots” and “Animals”
Western people , look at your own babies behaviour and character development. Most of the babies who were exposed to constant scanning will definitely have “Rude behaviour and immoral lifestyle”.
They will grow up and will not be bound by traditional lifestyle and they will not be family oriented in respecting parents and peers.
Some women tend to do scanning to get some grants and benefits of a pregnant woman.In the long term you are giving birth for a baby, which you are responsible for how the babies are growing and how they are like.
Abortion is Murder!
Abortion is another result of scans. Abortion is actually infanticide.
مَن قَتَلَ نَفْساً بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِى الاٌّرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً وَمَنْ أَحْيَـهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind
Hadith: Signs of Qiyama: Killing, killing, killing. (Bukhari, Muslim, Ibn Majah, & Ahmad).
Hadith: By He in Whose hand is my soul! The world shall not pass [away] before there comes upon people a day in which the murderer will not know why he has murdered, nor will the murdered one know why he has been killed. (Muslim).
It is ALLAH who protect the baby in the womb.You can do nothing there, except harm the baby or abort the baby!
Hadith:On the authority of Abdullah bin Masud, who said : the messenger of Allah, and he is the truthful, the believed narrated to us :
p “Verily the creation of each one of you is brought together in his mother’s belly for forty days in the form of seed, then he is a clot of blood for a like period, then a morsel of flesh for a like period, then there is sent to him the angel who blows the breath of life into him and who is commanded about four matters: to write down his means of livelihood, his life span, his actions, and whether happy or unhappy. By Allah, other than Whom there is no god, verily one of you behaves like the people of Paradise until there is but an arm’s length between him and it, and that which has been written over takes him and so he behaves like the people of Hell-fire and thus he enters it; and one of you behaves like the people of Hell-fire until there is but an arm’s length between him and it, and that which has been written over takes him and so he behaves like the people of Paradise and thus he enters it.”
