In recent months, a number of videos purported to be individuals who
were "cursed" by Allah and transformed into animals have been posted
to YouTube and circulating in the Muslim world via email. The purpose
of this post is to provide a comprehensive resource in order to debunk
these urban legends.

1. This video clip of an image of a strange humanoid/animal creature
has been posted multiple times to YouTube, claiming to be a girl who
was transformed into an animal after throwing the Quran at her mother:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZI4BCrMyg60
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1cSIkM4PAw

These videos can be traced back to stories in Arab newspapers:
http://tinyurl.com/55q4gu

...where it is obvious that these images were modified from photos
stolen from the website of artist Patricia Piccinini:

http://tinyurl.com/5jl5y7

This is, in fact, a sculpture of an imaginary human/animal hybrid from
Piccinini's 2003 "We Are Family" exhibit, which addressed the subject
of genetic engineering.

When Piccinini learned of this hoax she issued a statement: "This
image was stolen from Patricia's website and used without her
permission and against her wishes.

The image was accompanied a story that said that the creature was a
woman who was cursed. This story is not true. It is a hoax, a fraud.

Patricia is very disturbed by this hoax. She has no connection with
the person who first started the hoax. She does not know who made up
the story.

[...]

Patricia is deeply sympathetic towards anybody who has been upset or
disturbed by the hoax. She is very unhappy that her work has been
stolen and used in this way."

More images of the art exhibit and the sculpture that was the subject
of the hoax can be found in these additional links:

Why this hoax remains so popular may be due to the fact that this kind
of sculpted realism may not be as familiar to people in certain Muslim
societies, whereas in Western society, CGI realism, special effects
makeup and realistic sculpture are practically a part of pop culture.
Some other gallery artists who create disturbingly lifelike silicone
sculptures are Ron Mueck and Sam Jinks (who was hired by Piccinini as
part of her creative team).

2. Here is another widely circulated video that also claims to be the
cursed girl. This is quite obviously a bad attempt at a standard
sideshow trick with a person's head resting on a table (in this case,
next to what appears to be an animal pelt manipulated like a puppet).

3. This widely-circulated video shows a strange sea creature caught
by fisherman. The story is that this is a girl who was cursed and
turned into a "mermaid" for kicking the Quran:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvAGD0mzNnc

The creature in question is simply a regular species of fish known as
a guitar fish (aka the shovel-nosed ray). The placement of its gill
slits and mouth on its underside create the illusion of a cartoon
face.

4. These related videos purport to show mermaids...

They were in fact created by a taxidermy artist named Juan Cabana.

Don't be so quick to discount fact. Last year, I knew a girl who lived close
to me. She claimed to have a curse put on her by a jealous friend. I went to
her apartment, knocked on the door, no answer. Being a friend of this girl,
I opened the door, and there was a very large cat in the living room. This
was no ordinary cat. It seemed to be a undomesticated cat. Had wild looking
eyes and bigger than normal teeth.. It was a breed like no other I have ever
seen.. To this day the girl was never found.

The facts are in the links provided. If you have any doubts that this
is a hoax then you haven't looked at the links showing the original
source of the image. HTH. HAND.

How will God Almighty Judge us?

This life is a test for each individual for the life after death. and
the dead will be resurrected for judgment by God.

On the day of judgment God will judge each person on an individual
basis not our religious affiliation ie Islam, Christainty, Judaism,
Hinduism etc . God Almighty knows what's in the heart of man/woman
and will judge us based on our deeds and the choices we make in life.
Remember, one day you will appear before God (The Creator) and you
will answer for your deeds. It is your own conduct which will lead
you to reward or punishment, as if you had been destined therefor.

God says in the Holy Quran 67:2 “It is He who created death and life
for you that He may try you, as to which of you is best in works....

The Holy Quran, 21:47 "On the Day of Judgment, We shall set up scales
of justice so that no one will be dealt with unjustly in any way;
even if someone has an act as small as a grain of a mustard seed, We
will
bring it to account, and sufficient are We to settle the accounts."

The Holy Quran 16:111"The day will come when every soul will serve as
its own advocate, and every soul will be paid fully for whatever it
had done, without the least injustice."

The Holy Quran 4:124."As for those who lead a righteous life, male or
female, while believing, they enter Paradise; without the slightest
injustice."

The Holy Quran 2:62 Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who
follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,-
any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness,
shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear,
nor
shall they grieve.
