Log, I think that may be an old wive’s tale.
As I hear frequently these days, there’s a lot to unpack there.
First, my interest was primarily on the humorous image of Talibani warriors knitting afghans.
Second, I have heard that ‘only Allah is perfect’ trope numerous times, too, and I understand it to be a bit of sardonic wit. I mean, they make a perfect thing and then imperfectitomize it out of respect for God? Nice combo of ego and disingenuous respect, if you ask me!
Third, I guess the third thing was part of the first thing - an afghan pun and macho Taliban men crocheting (surely the women wouldn’t be allowed to do anything relating to God).
