The source of our rights

The topic of my essay is: “is the state  the soucre of human rights?”  The answer is obviously no. But there are  some that would say yes because the state gives them certain rights.Yet, there are some that think that the state is the source of their rights because  they do not think that God is the source of their rights.  The state is not the source of human rights because the state would be unfair and is not perfect. Meaning that the state state would give some more rights to others  and less to everyone else. In addition, we would be in big trouble if the state  was  the source of our rights .Because  the people who control state/government  are imperfect, also so  arde the individuals; only God is perfect. Basically, God is sovereign and the state is not.The reason why God is the source of our rights , is that God is our creator and he created us equal and gave us the same rights, thus the state can not do this. Furthermore, in Islam, Christianity,Judaism and in other religions believe that God is the source of our rights, which is true. My conclusion,is the state  is not the source of  human rights even if some or more believe it is. God is the source of our rights, whichi s a good thing.    ~Asiyyah B
