Quranic Perspective on Human Dignity: An Existential Interpretation
Languages of publication
In the Quran, mankind is mentioned in many verses with honours and dignity re-garding its creation and position. The human being in some verses is honoured and respected: man is superior to angels as they bowed for Adam as the first man. Mean-while the human being in other verses is dishonoured and devalued; being described like animals or lower beings. The aim of this paper is to deal with the Quranic perspec-tive regarding the human being’s dignity and honour. The nature of human dignity and honour in existential interpretation is seen in self—realization and self—making desti-nation. In this regard everything in the world is in the service of man in making his destination and identification.
