IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL
THE MENACE OF AIDS – A HUMAN TRAGEDY
The epidemic of AIDS is spreading in the world like a jungle fire.
40,000 Americans are getting infected each year. About 3 millions people are
dying globally. One in five adults is living with HIV/AIDS in
AIDS is a disease that is the direct
outcome of perverted sexual human behavior. It is not a new discovery. The
entire people of Prophet Lot were infected with the perverted behavior of
homosexuality. When the angels came to enquiry and punish the culprits who were
involved in this behavior, they found only the house of
However, the tragedy of modern
mind is quite different. It is trying to find out treatment of the “effect” and
gives little or no consideration to the cause that is creating this
contaminated disease and multiplying it constantly in geometrical proportion around
the world. Rather, the so-called advanced countries are busy in promoting the
cause by permitting the marriage of the same sex.
Allah created the man with three strong urges including that of the urge for sex to promote, preserve and maintain the continuation of human specie on this earth till the dooms day. He has made it so much extremely pleasant for both the sexes that “she” bears all the burden of bearing the fetus for nine months and the extraordinary pain of delivering process and “he” bears the burden of providing the ‘Rizq” for the family in the manner Allah provides and looks after it in the midst of all odds and eventualities of human life on earth. Both the sexes help together with love and affection to develop their progenies for the continuation of the benevolent services to mankind after their respective departure from this world. Now should the “individuals” that ignore, side track, neglect or avoid this one of the most important objectives of human creation have any “right” to benefit and enjoy from the bounties of “nature” within self and around him or her in this cosmos. One who is causing the discontinuation of human species and his own generation to flourish on earth has any right to live with dignity and honor amongst those who are striving for the survival of human species with their toil and hard labor? One who is so selfish and self-centered that he or she enjoys the “pleasure” of life without caring for the least to bear “fruitful” consequences of the process of procreation?
It is but natural that they
should be declared as are the enemies of human society, committing the crime of
its gradual annihilation. These sick men and women have no right to claim to be
at par with men and women who bear the responsibilities and burden to maintain
the integrity of human race. When these sexually perverted men and women can
live like normal citizen of a state and are a burden of sinful life on earth,
should they be not removed in the manner the people of
The cure does not lye in just rendering medical treatment or propagating to keep “abstinence” which are now the central focus point for all the governments and semi-government agencies but in developing the concept of “trust”: that what an individual possesses in body, soul, resources and the “urge for sex” are the endowments from his/her Creator ands Sustainer and none has “any right” to use it in any way other than what I have discussed earlier. Even if fifty percent of the funds being allocated for fighting the menace of AIDS through “medical process” are spent on cementing the concept of “trust” in young men and women and the affected societies at large around the world, this human tragedy will become a part of history within a few years time. Without the change in the attitude of life, as suggested, this menace will go on multiplying like the “bush-fires” and only God knows where it will end?
