CUTTING THE EARS OF THE LIVESTOCK AND MAKE CHANGES TO THE CREATION OF GOD 

4:119 (Satan said) “And I will misguide them and make them desire, and I will command them, so that they will mark the ears of the livestock, and I will command them so they will make changes to the creation of God.” (God said) Whoever takes the devil as a supporter other than God, then he has indeed lost a great loss.

WHAT IS MEANT BY CUTTING THE EARS OF THE LIVESTOCK?

In the pre-Islamic Arabia, the pagans used to cut the ears of the livestock as a mark of dedicating the animal to the idols. Now nobody could ride this animal, if the animal entered someone’s farm or house one couldn’t stop it. If the animal drank or ate someone’s provision nobody could do anything. Similarly, it was not allowed to be slaughtered.

They were not only torturing the animal, but themselves too. Who inspired them to do this? The Shaitan.

It also means people will become superstitious and innovate weird things in their Deen (system). In doing so, they will go to extremes and adopt things which are not part of Islam and were never taught by God. For example, today people take cattle to be their God. A cow is a deity for them. It was true in the days of Pharaoh, and these days Hindus give cows that status. People sacrifice cattle in the name of someone other than God.

WHAT IS MEANT BY THEY WILL MAKE CHANGES TO THE CREATION OF GOD?

1-BODY PIERCING, TATTOOING, BRANDING ETC

It means For Humans the body piercing, tattooing, branding, etc. All fall in the category of unnecessary interference, alteration and mutilation of God’s creation. Therefore, no Muslim, who is conscious of his Deen (system), should ever think about such activities.

People consider such procedures harmless and physical refinements but the truth is that these procedures have often been associated with numerous health hazards. For sensitive parts of the body such as tongues, lips, eyelids, etc. are more prone to be easily infected, and thus become infected with diseases, some of which may even be fatal. There is nothing at all surprising about all of these, for every unnecessary tampering with God’s creation is bound to produce adverse repercussions.

In Islam, all such acts that entail possible health hazards are considered totally forbidden even if they contain some imagined or presumed benefits; such presumed benefits are considered as being outweighed by the hazards. This fact alone warrants declaring body piercing, tattooing, branding, etc as forbidden.

The only exception is in the case of ear piercing specifically for females. This is so because of the specific need of women to wear jewelry. Men, however, according to Islam, have no such need.

It is also worth mentioning in this respect that ear piercing is somewhat different; for there are fewer hazards in ear piercing as compared to piercing of tongues, lips and eye-lids, etc.

Still another consideration strengthening the case for declaring body piercing as forbidden for males: Islam forbids us from copying other people in their specific customs and life-style without any tangible benefits.

Body piercing for males is not at all permissible in Islam. Ear piercing has been permitted for females. Such an exception, however, does not apply to males.

2-COSMETIC SURGERY

Cosmetic surgery for the purpose of beautifying oneself is not permissible. The body given to us by our creator is a trust, thus it is unlawful to tamper with it in any way. If one does so, one will be committing the sin of “changing the nature created by God”.

However, if there is a genuine need, for example, a particular organ of the body is severely deformed, the nose is damaged or a child is born with six fingers, etc…, then to perform cosmetic surgery will become permissible.

3- CIRCUMCISION

The circumcision for boys is necessary only in case of urinary tract infection due to a higher level of bacteria growth under the foreskin.

4- GENETIC ENGINEERING

Genetic engineering is one of the greatest discoveries of our time. It can be used for treating genetic diseases. All such new discoveries that help alleviate the suffering of humanity is welcomed in Islam.

In simple words not all genetic engineering applications are prohibited and not all are allowed. Those directed towards the benefit of the human race are allowed, but those used to fundamentally alter human nature and God’s work are prohibited. Science must be controlled by religion and ethics because a scientist with no restraints is but a devil.

5- CLIMATE CHANGE

Climate Change is a signal that humankind has lost its course due to greed and power. God, says he created the world in mizan (balance) 55:7-8

55:7 And He raised the heaven and He established the balance.

55:8 Do not transgress in the balance.

but through fasad (rebellion/corruption) 30:41, human beings have caused climate change, together with a range of negative effects on the environment that include deforestation, the destruction of biodiversity, and pollution of the oceans and of water systems.

30:41 Rebellion/Corruption (Fasad) has appeared in the land and the sea at the hands of the people by what they earn. He will make them taste some of what they have done, perhaps they will return.

  1. How could you say that circumcision for boys is necessary while you also write it comes from a men made hadith books?
    Salaam.

    • Saeed Talpur says:

      Wa Aliakum Salam Brother My understanding is that circumcision was cultural practice of the Egyptians which came in to the Jews and from Jews in to the Christians and Muslims.

      Probably in old times some thousand years ago Medics advised the parents to circumcise their children who were having problem like urinary tract infection. After that people made it as cultural practice.

      A Muslim who has actually read & studied the Quran would argue that mutilation of the body is Anti-Quranic (including circumcision, body piercings, etc) because 95:4 “We have created the human being in the best form.”.

      Sectarian Muslims override the Quran by referring to hadiths (most of which were fabricated to assimilate their original customs/traditions from the previous religion/belief/faith). The foreskin (whether over the head of the penis or clitoris) biologically evolved to protect & keep the sensitive parts of the sex organs naturally moist 24/7 (Exposure of those parts usually cause them to dry up like the sensitive tongue when left hanging out exposed to air). Most sectarian Muslims can’t tell the difference between a command from the Quran & fabricated hadith because they blindly follow religious authority (Mullahs, Ulema, Sheikhs, etc) – these “majority” will remain/appear barbaric to the rest of the developed world. This (tendency to follow the customs of their fathers & the majority) is also warned of in 2:170-171 & 6:116-117

      2:170 And if they are told: “Follow what God has sent down” they say: “No, we will follow what we found our fathers doing!” What if their fathers did not comprehend anything and were not guided?

      2:171 And the example of those who disbelieve is like one who repeats what he has heard of calls and cries; deaf, dumb, and blind, they do not comprehend.

      6:116 If you obey the majority of those on earth they will lead you away from God’s path; that is because they follow conjecture, and that is because they only guess.

      6:117 Your Lord is fully aware of who strays from His path, and He is fully aware of the guided ones.

      The Bibles (on the other hand) seems to encourage circumcision in male offspring. This may turn up as a controversial topic once the medical community starts publishing research papers which prove otherwise. Like many (now obsolete) prohibitions applied to in the past, most health concerns (disease, infection, etc) have been overcome by advances in biology & development in hygiene products+services

      Genesis 17:10
      This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your offspring after you: Every male among you shall be circumcised.

      Acts 7:8
      And he gave him the covenant of circumcision. And so Abraham became the father of Isaac, and circumcised him on the eighth day, and Isaac became the father of Jacob, and Jacob of the twelve patriarchs.

      Luke 2:21
      And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
