The Wonderful Mine

Allah, the Exalted in might says “Glory to God, Who created In pairs all things that the earth produces, as well as their own (human) kind and (other) things of which they have no knowledge” [36:36]. The prophet Mohammed (PBUH) says “Verily, Allah created Adam from a handful which He caught from all parts of the earth, therefore, the children of Adam came in correspondence to the whole earth, among them is the red, the white, the black & others in between, and the mild, the sad, the bad and good” [Refer to Sahih] however, now the analyses of human body revealed that it is formed from the same components of earth such as water, sugaries, proteins, oil, vitamins, hormones chlorine, silver, phosphorus, lime, potassium, sodium, iron, copper, iodine & other minerals. All these minerals together form various parts of human body. They are formed in human body according to fixed, estable and accurate proportions. Only Allah the creator knows the secret of how they come together and perform such a task. It was found that if the minerals which enter into the formation of human body are extracted & reformed, it will give us the following items: a box of chalk, a match box, a small nail, a handful of salt and some other valueless materials. However, the monitory value of all these items does not exceed ten Reyals. Can it believed that the monitory value of large part of human bodies does not exceed Rayals? Then, it means that man’s clothes or his watch is more valuable then him!! Isn’t it? Then, what is the real value of Man? The value of many universals which enter into the process of human creation is equal to nothing, then, the real value of Man is after the process of the formation of human body. Some societies made man like a machine. To compare Man with machine is to devalue him. A thing must be compared with another thing similar to it. Otherwise a sheep or a camel would be valuable then a human being. But Islam gave Man an exalted status & elevated him above our materialistic parameters. The evidence for this is that Quran says “We have honored the sons of Adam; provided them with transport on land and sea; given them for sustenance things good and pure, and conferred on them special favors, above a great part of Our Creation” [17:70] Another Aaya from Quran says “It is we who created you and gave you shape, then we bade the angels Bow down to Adam, and they Bowed down, not so Iblees, He refused to be of those who bow down. (God) said: what prevented you thee from bowing down when I commanded thee? He said: “I am better then he: thou aids create me from fire and him from clay”. Therefore, we have to respect man because Allah made angels to bow down to him. Allah honored man therefore we should not humiliate human beings. Source: “Don’t you see into yourselves?
