What is the price of each human being
“In the name of God, the beneficent, the merciful”
“What is the price of each human being”
Which human has the most expensive price among human beings? What is the criterion for human pricing?
Everything has a price. Humans, like other creatures, have a price too. There are a number of perfections in humans that are common to animals. These are the physical perfections of human. This perfection relates to human animalism.
“The noblest of you before Allah is the most righteous of you” Al-Hujarat 13.
The price of each human is from the goodness and perfection that he or she has, or it is the human perfection that he has implemented in himself. It is not acceptable to say by tough that I am Muslim, Christian, Jews, Buddhism, therefore I am a good man and will go to the heaven. What matters is how much human’s perfection one has implemented in oneself.
Amir Al-Mu’minin (A) said; “I am the scale. I am the scale of the actions in the Day of Judgment”. Meaning that human’s price is based on their actions, and He was the embodiment of justice and the perfect man.
They put the person next to the perfect human being, to see how much they are close in actions and knowledge. People will be graded with comparison of a perfect human. The closer humans are to the perfect human in terms of attributes, actions, and beliefs, the higher the price will be.
The price of each person is as much as the perfection that has been implemented in his life. Gradually, they must implement perfection in themselves, and if they are follower of Amir Al-Mu’minin (A), they must follow in the footsteps of Amir Al-Mu’minin (A) as much as they can. The more they go, the more expensive they become.
In summary: “The price of every human being is equal to his goodness”
Mohammad Mahdi Me’marian
All praise is to God to the extent that He deserves it.
