Did Mohamed's followers drink his urine in order to be blessed?

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2007/06/did-mohameds-followers-drink-his-urine.html

From MEMRI, we get this interesting news:

Media Uproar Following Egyptian Mufti's Fatwa on Companions of the Prophet Muhammad Being Blessed by Drinking His Urine 
 
This learned opinion was delivered in a recent book by Egyptian Mufti Dr. Ali Gum'a. The  Mufti claimed that the companions of the Prophet Muhammad would drink his urine to be blessed.
 
According to MEMRI:
 
The fatwa provoked strong objections on the part of the Egyptian religious establishment. Leading Al-Azhar and Religious Endowments Ministry officials stated that Gum'a's conclusions were mistaken even though they were based on Islamic sources. They added that his claims were inappropriate for the modern era and that they only caused embarrassment in the Egyptian street and did damage to the Prophet and to Islam.
 
There was an outcry against the fatwa from the Egyptian public, and a complaint was filed against Gum'a demanding that he stand trial for harming Islam, the Prophet, and the Companions of the Prophet. Columnists in the Egyptian papers ridiculed the fatwa and protested against it: While some argued that there was no point in raising such issues from the past that had nothing to do with public life today, others stated that the fatwa was for Islamic scholars, not for the masses, and still others said that it was a tool for those who sought to harm Islam. Some also called on Gum'a to resign from his post as the Mufti of Egypt.
 
While according to some reports Gum'a had apologized for the fatwa, in actuality he clarified that he had not apologized, but had only decided to remove the book from the market and to refrain from appearing in the media until the uproar subsided.
 
In a multipluralistic society, is there no room for urine drinkers? Le'hayim.
