HI Nambiar just concentrate - Human Laws and systems will always have loopholes

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Plato and Mansoor

I totally disagree and I am not a person to switch my thoughts our step back or forward if any concept is imposed on me which is colliding with Allah's commandment.

The man made system, which Plato is emphasizing to support, has numerous loopholes. For example the system which he advocates gives complete liberty to even that person who loves to commit serious crimes. The system which harbors the criminal trend is not a successful system. Islam with utmost fierceness and with Laws like chopping hands and feet gives a clear signal to those who have slightest intention of committing such crime. In fact, Islam puts breaks on thoughts of criminals because the punishment would be so devastating and having such a long lasting impact that everybody would think twice, thrice or multiple before doing something worse.

The 21st Century thoughts or advancement in social ideologies is very much welcomed but under the guidelines of Islamic Sharia and the Law of the Lord "Allah". Islam doesn't put any ban on thoughts but Islam demands all the believers not to cross the limits, boundaries identified in Quran the glorious and Sunnah.

To my best understanding, the whole universe is following Allah's commandment, if for just mere 10 minutes, the earth refuses to enforce gravitational force, what would be the fate of us in such a short time, can you imagine????. If the atmospheric gases which are the source of life on this planet vanish for mere 15 minutes, what will you do???? If the water of oceans is absorbed completely by earth, what will you do????

Try to understand that every thing and every minor particle is following Allah's commandment and their obedience and following commands can be seen as extremely important for existence of life on this planet. Their minor disobedience or ignoring Allah's rule would create an unimaginable chaos.

But Human goes against Allah's will throughout his/her life, and still expect to get the cake of salvation? I think there no bigger joke than this.
