creatures. He is not an animal that can walk on two feet and can talk, he is different from animals. Human
in qouranic thought is a very mysterious creature that cannot be defined with few words.Quran has praised
and criticized human, the highest praised and the greatest criticizes were given to men. He could go high
as angels and can lower himself worse than an animal. From Quran’s point of view human can and have
the ability to bring himself up even higher than angles, he also has the ability to lower himself to hell.
