6 ITQA-2020-06-000001 In the Holy Qur'an it is written that God has created everything - God is the Creator of everything (39:62) - and it is also stated that He has created everything is favorable - He Who made best everything which He hath created... (32:7). In this manner a relation has been made between creation and goodness - meaning that everything that is created and existing is good. However, by contrast, reasoning and also some Qur'anic verses clearly state that some actions are evil and ugly? How can this be explained?

A dangerous disease caused by pig

Many sanitary organizations receive reports from the physicians about the patients suffering from a disease called trichinosis. Now, the reports indicate that the disease has become epidemic that is, the cases of this disease are much more than what should normally exist in the society.

Trichinosis is a parasitic disease caused by a small hairy worm, which is one of the round worms. This worm lives in the body of pig and some other animals, but any mammal may be afflicted by this disease after eating the polluted pork, but man's sensitivity in this respect is much more. For instance, bear is easily afflicted after eating pig's parts, like intestine, and the hunters and others consuming the flesh of a bear, will be afflicted by this disease in turn.

Normally, man is afflicted by this disease after eating the not well cooked pork (No one can claim that he has consumed a port well and fully cooked, because now, there are some cases of trichinosis caused by eating pork, apparently cooked reliably by modern tools and the writer of article too refers to this issue- Translator's note).

A study based on autopsy indicates that 25 million of people have grown this parasite in their body, but a group of them have displayed the symptoms of disease clinically, and thousands cases of disease have remained unknown to the physicians!

Moreover, it has been estimated that from 25 million of people proved to be infected with this parasite in their muscles and often diaphragm, 16000 have displayed the disease clearly in the clinic, and 5 percent of them have passed away for severity of infection.
