Dignity of Man (Conference Call)

Salam,

We will discuss following verses:


Sura 17 Aya 70

وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ وَحَمَلْنَاهُمْ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ
وَرَزَقْنَاهُم مِّنَ الطَّيِّبَاتِ
وَفَضَّلْنَاهُمْ عَلَىٰ كَثِيرٍ مِّمَّنْ خَلَقْنَا تَفْضِيلًا

Indeed, We have conferred dignity on the children of Adam, carried them over land and sea, provided for them nourishment out of good things, and endowed them far above most of Our creation.

This aya points to an important spiritual reality: the intrinsic worth of man because of his great potential. Everyone knows this truth instinctively. For this reason, the most important need of a human being is to feel valued, to be respected, and to be honored.
God has infused His breath in the human being and, therefore, each person has great worth. In the present stage of the world’s spiritual development, many people still evaluate each other by external criteria of wealth and appearance. Those who are poor or diseased or come across as “different” are looked down upon by many. To establish a society in which each person’s value is recognized is the main work of civilization. This is achieved when everyone has the same rights and the same opportunity. To make a deliberate effort to realize this goal is the task God has assigned to each of us.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
