We can hear you say, "Fine! If it is for other reasons, then what's the exact reasons?"
That's the point! Did you realize that each of the above cases is linked to some higher objectives of Islaamic law? Yes! There's a link!
"Then what is that link called? What's the exact answer for all?"
To answer it generally, it is "Goals of the Sharee'ah." If you like to know the specific answer, then you have to attend the workshop.
Come and learn Maqaasid ash Sharee'ah or as we call it "Mission Sharee'ah" !!!

"It is noted that Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah), believed that people who are most likely to be on the truth, are those who linked the Islamic rulings with the Higher Objectives meant by the Legislator."
