Clarity of mind

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law

Submitted by Mansoor (Pakistan), Feb 23, 2008 at 22:40

Many people raised questions about why God has created Shaitan (Satan) and Dogs when they are dangerous for human or impure etc. In Surah "Al-Mulk" of the Glorious Quran, Allah says that he has created life and death to judge who is going for better deeds.

We have been given a great sense which other creations are not given, the sense to differentiate between right an wrong, clean and dirt, good and bad etc. Allah has created all types of animals and every thing we see around us is forming part of a complexed test we are passing through. When Allah has prohibited us about certain things and allowed us certain things this is purely for our sake.

Unfortunately, the level of disbelief and the level of denial increased to dangerous level. This is just because we are depending too much on ourselves and boasting and believing that we are in control of every thing now. In fact it is the biggest mistake a human is making, If we had the control so ultimate then we would have easily brought back the dead, we would have easily controlled the diseases spreading around us. We would have easily controlled AIDs, Cancer etc.

We must accept that till now what we have achieved is toominimal and too limited. It is very easy by words to challenge God's system and claiming it to be unjust, but you can not prove it anyway. Dogs and Pigs are prohibited and only for our own sake, if we don't accept it then its our own fault. Allah's Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) did his duty by conveying message of Allah it is only up to us how serious we take it. People tend to drag discussion to a totally different direction and considering dogs becoming so important and being part of armies and police force. Yes I accept their qualities are exceptional but I talked only in the light of how to handle these animals ensuring your personal safety according to the guidelines provided by your own creator.

I hope you understand.
