Acid – A weapon unlicensed

Words that we utter with our mouth are part of our soul and our body.  Once they are out through our mouth, they become part of the nature.  Whatever we say, nature responds the same way.  That is why Islam has strongly suggested to greet each other with good words, express different feelings by using proper wordings and be soft but fair and firm in dealing with each other.
Sometimes we become so cruel to ourselves that we start praying to God Almighty for bestowing us with situations when we can prove our bravery, generosity and patience.  Then when God Almighty accepts our requests, we initially enjoy being a great help to humanity and then become tired of keep facing such conditions.  While it didn’t happen in the time of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
فَقَالُواْ عَلَى اللّهِ تَوَكَّلْنَا رَبَّنَا لاَ تَجْعَلْنَا فِتْنَةً لِّلْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ…سورة يونس
تو انہوں نے عرض کیا “ہم نے الله ہی پر توکّل کیا ہے، اے ہمارے رب! تو ہمیں ظالم لوگوں کے لئے نشانۂ ستم نہ بنا…
They said, “In Allah we do put our trust.  Our Lord! make us not a trial for those who practice oppression…”
وَإِذَا صُرِفَتْ أَبْصَارُهُمْ تِلْقَاءَ أَصْحَابِ النَّارِ قَالُواْ رَبَّنَا لاَ تَجْعَلْنَا مَعَ الْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ… سورة الاعراف
اور جب انکی نگاہیں دوزخ والوں کی طرف پھیری جائیں گی تو وہ کہیں گے “اے ہمارے رب! ہمیں ظالم گروہ کے ساتھ نہ ملا… 
(And when their eyes will be turned towards the dwellers of the Fire, they will say: “Our Lord! Place us not with the people who are Zualimeen (cruel, merciless, oppressor)…”
رَبَّنَا لَا تَجْعَلْنَا فِتْنَةً لِّلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا رَبَّنَا إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ… سورة الممتحنة
“اے ہمارے رب! تو ہمیں کافروں کے لئے سبب آزمائش نہ بنا (یعنی انھیں ہم پر مسلط نہ کر) اور ہمیں بخش دے، اے ہمارے پروردگار! بے شک تو ہی غلبہ و عزت والا، بڑی حکمت والا ہے…”
“Our Lord! Make us not a (test) trial for the unbelievers, but forgive us, our Lord! for You are the Exalted in Might, The Most Wise…”
Recite these ayaahs/verses/Quranic prayers as much as possible in any language.  
The Arabic word “zualim ظالم ” mean cruel, merciless, ruthless, brutal and their synonyms.  This is not a condition of becoming wild in anger occasionally but a continuous state of enjoying brutality. 
A zualim or an oppressor is a person that even prophets were suggested to seek refuge from.  There are people who love to play “more kind, wiser and mightier than God” and when they fail in doing so, they start playing reverse “more revengeful, more powerful than God”.  The prophets were sent to preach morality in order to control those factors which can rise anger, depression or heat into barbarism and instigate anyone to exercise it on people or animals.  All prophets were decent, fair and firm.  Now, it is not prophet’s fault or failure if people of the world have ignored them and have chosen others to follow their lives.   
Acid has become not only the most dangerous of all strategies applied to control or punish women.  It is also language through which we want to settle our affairs.  It is already serving as a source to facilitate terrorism and a weapon to cause threat and fear.
Such use of acid shows how human beings have started entertaining themselves by defacing and disabling other human beings.  One reason might be the cartoons and movies that show characters with faces and bodies disfigured – no more meadows, no more softness, no more helping hand, no more sweet songs – only revenge, violence and rock and roll.
We have created a Hell for ourselves with our own hands – fire, stink, contaminated water, shouting, screaming, crying, shattering bodies, blood, eating dead.  This is our punishment in this world.  Who knows what will happen to us in the Hereafter.
I remember the case of Javed Iqbal in 1999-2000, who kidnapped 100 children, raped them, murdered them and dumped their bodies into barrels full of acid.  I doubt such an easy availability of acid in our society.  People need no license or explanation before purchasing it or just get it by force.  I don’t remember if I had needed acid for any reason in last ten years but now I am thinking about keeping an acid-spray to protect me from unknown enemies.
Acid is a problem worldwide.  In Pakistan, we have certainly failed in teaching the proper usage of acid.  It is surely the reaction of indulging into ideology of “roti, kapra, makan and ikhtiyar sub kay liey”.
