Social Justice and Islam
In Islam, justice stands for placing things in their rightful place. It stands also for giving others equal treatment with no discrimination whatsoever.
Islam lays great emphasis on justice because it facilitates the establishment of social order, which enables humans to develop their human qualities, live in peace and harmony and make this world worth living.
Peaceful life is possible only when we are just in our thinking and activities. Allah Almighty says in the Quran: “Indeed! We sent Our messengers with clear signs and sent down with them the Book and Balance that people may uphold justice.” (Al-Hadid 57:25)
