Every Human-being is honored. Honored by the fact that they exist. Weather you think they exist because of a higher entity or by chance, the fact that they exist means they are important enough to be here. And therefore deserve to continue to exist and be treated with dignity. You have been specifically and particularly chosen by God to be here and now. That’s not an accident my friend. There is something about you that is unique and special, and no one else has. When I say no one, I am talking about everyone from the beginning of time until the end of it and that’s why you are here. You are definitely not a waste of space. By the same merit, the person you despise the most, they too were created by the same entity. God choose for them to be here as well. They also are unique and special. So regardless of your opinion of them, they deserve to be here and to be treated the same way you would like to be treated. That is with dignity, justice and honor. I know what you are thinking. How about people like Hitler? And for that I say how about Pharaoh!! He killed children for a living for crying out loud. But yet God still sent him not one but two messengers Moses and Aaron. And told them “قولا له قولا لينا لعله يذكر او يخشي” And speak to him with gentle speech that perhaps he may be reminded or apprehend.
We also celebrate all living things like animals, trees…etc or even non-living things for that matter. However, due to our intellect, language and imagination, the highest priority goes to us, humans. Because we have the potential to be more honorable than “angels” or worse than animals. It’s all determined by our choices. But that ability of choice on its own is why God asked the angels to bow down to Prophet Adam, which is basically all of us, out of respect. Allah SWT in the Quran says “ولقد كرمنا بي ادم” We have honored the children of Adam. He also says “ لقد خلقنا الانسان في احسن تقويم” We have certainly created man in the best of stature. And in another “وصوركم فاحسن صوركم” and formed you and perfected your form. “الذي خلقك فسواك فعدلك” The one who created, shaped you and made you stand up straight. If you think about it, we one of the few creation if not the only one that stand up tall and walk on two feet. Very honorably so.
