Human beings are creatures from unknown to known. The struggle of human being on earth is to gain freedom back to his initial abode. The intellectual and spiritual endowment that was given to man in creation is not only to worship (Allah) as command, but it’s also serves as a divine gift from the creator; to enable him develop himself in a balance mode. This intellectual acumen given to man by Allah is to make him respond adequately to his environmental challenges by being creative in response to his need at a time. The creative tendencies endowed to man made it possible for him to discover and develop ideas that are capable of satisfying the needs of the entire human race.
