What is created by God and what is created by man? Where lies the secret of originality? Here is part of a recent conversation between me and my six year old that took place about an hour ago:
Ahmed (writing names of things made by God for his home assignment): Baba, tell me two more things created by Allah.
Me (occupied with my work on computer): Write anything. Everything is created by Allah.
Ahmed (noticeably lost and slightly agitated): But there are things made by Allah and there are things made by Insaan (human being)….
Reminds me of a similar dialogue, three years ago.
