BURNS and A MIRACLE (epidermal fat)
First Degree (superficial) burn:
A first-degree burn, a superficial burn is limited to the epidermis.
It is characterized by heat, pain, moistening and reddening of the
burned surface, but rarely shows blistering or charring of tissue.
Superficial burns often heal in three to seven days and seldom scar.
Typical superficial burns include sunburn and minor scalds.
Second Degree (Partial thickness) Burns:
Second-degree burns involve the epidermis and part of the dermis layer
of skin. The burn site appears red, blistered, and may be swollen and
painful. Second-degree burns usually heal in about three weeks, as
long as the wound is kept clean and protected.
Third Degree (Full Thickness) Burns:
This is an extremely severe burn injury and requires immediate medical
care. These types of burns usually occur with explosions or fires,
which are fueled by chemicals such as gasoline or alcohol. A third-
degree burn, also known as a full thickness burn, destroys all the
epidermal and dermal skin layers. The tissue damage extends below hair
follicles and sweat glands to subcutaneous (fat) tissue. With this
degree of burn, the skin becomes charred and leathery and often
appears depressed relative to surrounding tissue. The skin can be
bright red, waxy white, tan or brown; there are no blisters; and third
degree burns may cause massive swelling. Perhaps surprisingly, third
degree burns are usually not painful because the injury has destroyed
nerve endings. Skin grafting or other replacement options are required
for treatment of a third degree burn.
The Quran states ; "Those who reject our signs, We shall cast into
the fire; as often as their skins are roasted through. We shall
change them for fresh skins, that they may taste the punishment; for
Allah is Exalted in power; Wise." ( 4:56)
The Quran, the last revealed word of God, is the primary source of
every Muslim's faith and practice. It deals with all the subjects
which concern human beings: wisdom, doctrine, worship, transactions,
law, etc., but its basic theme is the relationship between God and His
creatures. At the same time, it provides guidelines and detailed
teachings for a just society, proper human conduct, and an equitable
