“I will mislead them, and I will create in them false desires; I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and to deface the (fair) nature created by God.” Whoever, forsaking God, takes Satan of a surety suffered a loss that is manifest. VERSE 119, THE WOMEN (NISAA) SURA 4
When God creates something He sets forth certain criteria and guidelines ideal for that creature.
Today the Japanese produce cubic watermelons. Have you ever thought of what harm a cubic watermelon would be? From the standpoint of storing and preserving. . .
Because watermelon rots where it contacts the ground. A cubic watermelon would, more quickly rot since it would have much more surface to contact.
Nowadays, there are many samples of changing God’s creation.
Some women being discontent with the beauty bestowed to them by God. undergo plastic surgery and have there noses, breasts and even lips mutated. Some of them even have spinal surgery just to have a more aesthetic appearing waist - and have a vertebrae removed
There is only one reason for this: to make themselves more appealing to others. . .
That is, to win the approval of humans. . .whereas what is important is to win the approval of God.
All organs of the human body have been created ideally and ergo - economically, both in measurement and purpose.
Man has seen himself as a creator and copied man.
Is then He who creates like one that creates not? Will ye not receive admonition? VERSE 17, THE BEE (NAHL) SURA 16
To create something which does not exist only belongs to God. Man is only an imitator. . and a bad one. . he ruins what has been created. He deviates from the original and the purpose.
Genetic engineers produce roses - by grafting - which appear like natural roses. Yet their fragrance is not like the natural rose. A hormone injected tomato is larger than an organic tomato produced in the fields. Yet it does not taste the same as an organic tomato.
God has determined periods for the production of certain vegetables and fruits.
Man has altered this production schedule, too. You may find eggplant in the winter. Or you may find oranges in mid summer. But neither will have the same taste as those produced in their natural season.
Man tries to alter the creation of Earth, too. He has punctured the Ozone layer and continually pollutes nature - especially the seas. For the sake of housing and to reap profits, forests – the lungs of the world – are being destroyed. Animals are becoming extinct. The extinction of one species means the extinction of another which feeds on the former. Man is oblivious of this for the sake of his interests.
Such is the Creation of God: Now, show Me what is there that others besides Him have created? Nay, but the transgressors are in manifest error. Verse 11, The Wise (Luqman) Sura 31
