I think the role of intention needs to be discussed.
WHY clone people is an important question.

We talk of clones based on its ethics more so than religious or spiritual meaning. When we discuss why humans should/should not clone as David says what is the intention? If a human is cloned we say that its unethical because it plays God. But, what if parts of a human were cloned such as an arm or leg? What if such clones could give an amputee the ability to move or have a limb? Now on the basis of soul and as I mentioned before all things in my belief has a soul. From the atom to the largest mountain, but how we interpret how that soul acts is in accordance to our understanding of the concept of soul.

As God says in the Qur'an Allah of life comes from the same elements so why not all of life containing a soul or some sort of spiritual essence? Obviously the essence of God emanates from all of life here so why not?

I think some people want to do it just to see what happens... If it is at all possible... etc.. if the cloned guy might actually live... 

I compleatly understand it... Its almost like mixing various flammable chemicals... and then setting them on fire to see what happens... or maybe its just me who does that.... hmm.. SO many Mysteries...
THere Is no god, BUT GOD
and Adam was his First Messenger
