Views

Human intellect and knowledge should be promoted. Everything that corrupts or weakens it, such as alcohol and drugs, should be forbidden. Koran imposed preventative punishments in order that people stay away from them, because a sound intellect is the basis of the moral responsibility that humans were given.
