GOD AND SUBMISSIVENESS
By: Maqsood Hasni
Translated By: Najam
He used to be obedient, innocent and pure and, due to his obedience, he had become the vicegerent of God. But when he came to know that a supreme and crown creature had been created, he was failed with rage and became malignant. When he was ordered to bow before this creature, he appeared to be arrogant. He refused to bow because he regarded it as inferior. So, he was declared condemned for ever.
Being humiliated by the Creator, he planned to wreak his vengeance on his rival by proving him inferior. The Master blessed this creature with His bounties and was of the view that, without any exaggeration, it was the most lofty creature and would
last long at any rate.
After being banished from the Divine court, he was greatly aggrieved and furious. One day, while planning about future, he stung this new creature. The crown creature felt intoxicated due to poison and was sent to unknown land. After coming in senses, he came aware of his mistake. He conceded his blunder and promised to be cautious now.
Intoxication never caused positive and fruitful results, Every new creation was badly affected by jealously, irritation, retaliation and snobbery. Then he developed this curse consciously or unconsciously and stared longing for this vice. With the passage of time, he was gradually ensnared in the meshes of this sin. All riff-raffs yearned for it. Many good-hearted people had seriously ventured to dislocate it root and branch but those who were habitual of it, conspired against these people. These drunkards kept on drinking and its physicians went on curing it and every notorious vagabond wanted to be number one in this field. They violated all human values in order to achieve "distinction" but, in fact, they could not approach its extreme.
He crossed every limits but could not be satisfied. Then, one day, he got deeply involved in jealousy and revenge and felt great pleasure in them. In this specific state of mind, he thought that all resources belonged to him. One religious-minded tried to impede him. He prepared one of his follower to deal with him in a proper way. There was a formidable collision and everyone convulsed. He felt mentally elevated by this sanguinary conflict because it had comforted him. The element of barbarity seemed to be its prime and he was not aware of its irretrievable consequences. Bloodshed bestowed on him great satisfaction. He joined his stooge in order to fulfill his lust. When his disciple had to face humiliation, he tried to leave this inhuman field but he had reached the point of return.
The intensity of covetousness harbors a horrible results but its lust continued. In fact, its venom goes on increasing. Although he had joined the down- trodden class of paupers yet he bore immense vanity and majesty in his tone. The Creature crushed him and he was prostrated at the feet of others. He implored and thou became a symbol warning for new generation. It was the first decline of his lust. He should have amended himself quite at the outset. Now he got badly entangled in the meshes of humiliation.
