The punishment for breaching a trust is proportional to the significance of the trust and its true owner. The punishment given to a child who has broken the window of an ordinary building is not like that of the aide-de-camp of a king who has lost or broken the crown of the king.
If again a private and an army commander spent the capital that was given to each according to his rank on petty things and wasted it away the commander would certainly be tried at a court-martial and sentenced to a much greater punishment than the private. Likewise if a scientist responsible for carrying out scientific investigations behaved like a shepherd and spent the resources assigned to his investigations on trifling things certainly he would not be treated the same as a shepherd who spent resources assigned to him for feeding sheep to meet his own needs.
Animals spend the capital of life assigned for them in the world without any misuse or waste; they fulfill whatever they must: some carry burdens some give milk and meat and still some others produce things like honey or silk for the use of human beings. It is only man that may spend whatever is given to him in either the right or the wrong way. So despite being the most honored of beings endowed with many faculties like conscience intellect consciousness memory and powers of thinking and reasoning as well as with numerous inner and outer senses and feelings if man wastes all these faculties senses and feelings he will certainly deserve a severe punishment. Particularly if he lets his evil-commanding self dominate over his heart which must overflow with knowledge and love of the Creator he will undoubtedly be reduced to being a kind of fuel for Hell whose fuel is of men and stones.
