Now a days, I am reading THE KITE RUNNER by KHALID HOSSEINI. Though I have just completed the 3rd chapter yesterday, I want to share something, which I realized very true.

In a scene, the protagonist (in his childhood) was with his father while he was drinking. "If what he(Mullah) said is true then does it make you a sinner, Baba?" The child asked. He was clearly questioning on the drinking habits of his fatter. "Hmm" the father said, "Do you want to know what your father thinks about sin?"... and the answer was obviously a nod in yes. That answer was all, why I'm writing this.

“Now, no matter what the mullah teaches, there is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft. Do you understand that?”

Note: Mullah is a title given to some Islamic Clergy.

The reasons in support of the argument were something, which mesmerized me a lot.

“When you kill a man, you steal a life,”Baba said. “You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness. Do you see?”

Isn't it very true? True in every possible sense that every sin is a variation of theft. Name a sin and relate what it steals from the victim??? Theft doesn't only mean to steal your money or materialistic possessions; it also means to lose your trust, your rights, your dear ones and anything you can think of.
