Should we declare Euthanasia legal in Pakistan?By Sobia Raja • Oct 31st, 2012 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look • 58 Comments
Yesterday night I gone through a story of a boy in which he told that his mother is in coma from 9 years and he is unable to see her in this condition so should he euthanize his mother. What are the religious obligations regarding this issue, I know it is considered as a merciful act, or to relief a patient from pain or sufferings, but how can we do that, while we know the life and death is in the hands of Allah then how can we kill someone??
Euthanasia is sort of killing in order to relieve pain or suffering that is mostly legal in many countries. But question is should we declare it legal in Pakistan?? Does our religion allow this?? And many other things like that need discussions and should be discussed to acknowledge our people.
In this respect I collected some Holy Scriptures that I would really like to share with others.
“Do not kill yourselves, for verily Allah has been
to you most merciful” (4: 29)
“…take not life which Allah has made sacred” (6:
“…and (Allah) is the one who gave you life, then
shall He ordain you to die, then shall He give you your life
again, truly mankind is ungrateful” (22: 66)
As it is quite clear from these Holy Scriptures that suicide, or any attempt to end life is prohibited in Islam, ALLAH who loves man more than anyone else knows well when and how to end one’s life then how can we do this??
Being Muslims and Pakistani we shouldn’t declare euthanasia legal, as ALLAH the creator of every human being and HE (SWT) is the only one who can end the life. I admit it’s the toughest thing to see our loved ones in pain but we shouldn’t go against the laws of Allah and the things that HE (SWT) verboten. Because HIS (SWT) love is more than ours, HE (SWT) is so kind on HIS creature then how can HE ignore them. So just trust in ALLAH. HE is the one who can give life to dead so nothing is impossible for HIM just firm belief is required, so pray is the best way because there is not even a single disease that is cureless. Just trust ALLAH HE can change everything and never think to end yours own life or of someone else in order to get relief.
