Moreover, the aim of applying, and accepting the application of religious punishments is, in itself worshipping of Allah, His Almighty through accepting His orders, and avoiding whatever He orders us to stay away from. Also, abstaining from what Allah, His Almighty has consecrated as forbidden, and practicing only what Allah, His Almighty, has allowed is worshipping. Allah has forbidden usury, but allowed trade. A merchant could earn 1000%, while a usurer could make only 0.1%. Yet the fact remains, that trade is allowed, but usury is forbidden. Another example is that a woman is ordered not to mourn over a dead person for more than three days, regardless of how dear or close that person is to her, such as her son, her brother, or her father. However, she should mourn her husband for four months and ten days
There must be a higher wisdom and reason for every divine order and consecration, which we could be informed of, lead to, or be hidden from us. The human being should listen and obey in all conditions. However, if a person depends on his perception, understanding, and knowledge of the purpose for any order, Then this person cannot be a true worshiper of Allah.

His blasphemy would be of Satan's kind, whose only crime was refusing a divine order due to blasphemy, arrogance, and pride

Any moment of negligence, or forgetfulness in remembering Allah is a sin, not appreciating and thanking Allah for one of His bountiful gifts is a sin, and violating Allah's laws, no matter how small or great this violation is, is a sin. For Allah has ordered His creatures to fear Him, as He should be feared, since He is The God, The Deity, The One who is aware of every single soul's deeds. Allah, His Almighty says
