I am starting a discussion for the first time here so forgive my ignorance but I want to discuss something. After some research, I was unable to find a clear answer. How are human beings perceived in the Qur'an? Are we considered the best creation of Allah (some books and articles pointed to this) or are we imperfect as a species? Or are we the the best creation that happens to be imperfect at the same time? Could any of you please provide some passages so I can read them first hand. Again, my apologies about this elementary question.
