Observe here the greatness of the Divine Commands. Allah U, The Creator of Mankind, is the one who has laid down laws to ensure the protection and safety of Mankind. So do not place yourself in the position of the God of Mankind! Only He can legislate commands and laws for the human beings from the time of the Prophet Adam u until Allah U takes back the Earth and all that is on it.
“Al-Mithaq” means ‘the contract which is fastened’. It encompasses everything which contains responsibilities. An example is the marriage contract that the Holy Qur’an describes as:
﴾وَأَخَذنَ مِنكُم ميثاقًا غَليظًا﴿
“and they have taken from you a solemn covenant.” [Surah An-Nisaa’: 21]
