Baby is a blessing
Murder of Afreen and Falak is Gruesome
FEMALE FOETICIDE BY DR. FAROOQ AHMAD PEER
The Murder of Falakand Afreen is certainly gruesome, shameful and unpardonable. The act is horrible. The so-called Muslim fathers killed their infant children on the ground that they were females. By murdering their daughters they have followed the barbarity of pagan Arabs who would bury alive their female issues.
The Arabs were involved in female infanticide before the advent of Islam and they would welcome the male child but not the female child. They would bury the female child alive which was very barbarous and inhumanely action. Allah detested it and through his Prophet (SAW) taught the Arabs the gravity and terrible consequences of this horrible act. They were taught that children, male or female, are equally important because the balance of humanity lies on both. A male child becomes the father of tomorrow while as the girl child becomes the mother of tomorrow. Prophet Mohammad (SAW) says that, “To kill your children fearing that they will share your sustenance is the greatest sin along with polytheism and disobedience to parents”.
When we look at the child from the point view of our religious scriptures we become firm of the opinion that a child comes from the heaven and as such he has all the heavenly qualities in him. The Children are the gifts and blessings from Almighty Allah and hence their birth ought to be welcomed and praises and thanks to be offered to Allah. The modern world has become full of complexities and there is a fast growing tendency nowadays in the world that birth of a child is a burden and manifestation of financial difficulties. Killing a child is callous, barbarous and merciless and imprudent, foolish and reprehensible. Allah says in the Holy Quran:
“Indeed lost are they who kill their children foolishly”
(Al-Quran. 6. 141)
Those people who perform such foolish acts become mentally, spiritually and morally bankrupt and are in a great loss. Moreover, they become killers of the humanity as well as their future progeny who are the foundation of their families in particular and the community in general. They earn the wrath of Allah and are the foes of their own selves.
Allah says in the Holy Quran:
“Kill not your children for fear of want, we shall provide sustenance for them as well as for you. Verily, the killing of them is a great sin (Al- Quran)
Our Prophet (SAW) loved male as well as female child on equal bases. He (SAW) says:
“He who is blessed with the birth of a girl and does not burry her alive in the manner of the pagan days and does not detest her: neither shows preference to the boy over the girl nor considers the boy in any way superior to the girl, such a person will certainly land into the heaven (Jannat)” (Abu –Dawood).
In the murder of Afreen and Falak innocence has been done to death by the cruel fathers who deserve a punishment more than death, if possible. The law may take its course definitely and it is probable that the law may award them with life imprisonment but such sinful and monstrous humans deserve maximum punishment. Therefore, all the Islamic organizations of India should come forward with a fatwa of Death penalty to the father turned criminal so that the image of Muslim society does not get demolished any more in future and everybody understandsthat such heinous crimes against women folk have no place in Islam.
