Q8. Make a précis of the following passage and suggest a suitable title.
John Lock reflects the new situation in England more than ever when he goes on to argue that the reason men come together to live in a society, with laws, is for the preservation of their property. Since men are driven into society, it follows that the power of that society ‘can never be suffered to extend further than the common good. And this common good can only be determined by standing laws, statues, that all are aware of and agree to, and not by extemporary degrees of, say, an absolute sovereign. Moreover, these laws must be administered ‘by indifferent and upright judges’. Only In this way can the people (and rulers) know where they are.
In an important amendment to the idea of absolute monarchy, Lock said that the king can never suspend the law. Finally, Lock gave voice to the main anxiety of the rising commercial classes in England (fear of something which they saw happening in France, in state intervention in trade), that no power can take from a man his property without his consent.
A soldier may be commanded by a superior in all things, save the disposal of his property. In the same way, a man has property in his own person, meaning that a man’s labor is his property too. The most important consequence of this, Lock says is that people can be taxed only with their consent. (We recognize this now in the doctrine ‘No taxation without representation.)
Q9. Translate the following passage into English.
اگر دنیا آپ کو اپنی طرف نہیں کھینچتی، اگر اللہ کے خوف سے آپکی آنکھوں میں آنسو آ جاتے ہیں، اگر دوزخ کا تصور آپ میں خوف خدا پیدا کرتا ہے، اگر آپ اللہ کی عبادت اسطرح کرتے ہیں جس طرح کرنی چاہیے، اگر نیکی آپ کو اپنی طرف راغب کرتی ہے اور آپ کے پاوں برائی کے راستے پر جانے سے رک جاتے ہیں تو پھر آپ صالح ہیں۔ کچھ صالح ہوتے ہیں، کچھ صالح بنتے ہیں۔ صالح ہونا خوش قسمتی کی بات ہے۔ صالح بننا مسلسل تذکیہ اور مجاہدے کا عمل ہے۔ اس میں وقت لگتا ہے اور تکلیفیں بھی سہنا پڑتی ہیں۔
