All praise belong to Allaah who has commanded us in His Flawless Book to be Just and has forbade us from exceeding the limits set by Him.
On the Strength of Abu Dharr (may Allaah be pleased with him) : The Messenger of Allah, (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Allaah, the Exalted and Glorious, said, “O my servants, I have forbidden oppression for myself and I have made it forbidden among you, so do not oppress one another…" Sahihul Muslim 2577
Allaah has indeed made oppression and sins forbidden for us. He has equally forbidden us from dealing unjustly even with non-Muslims.
We are a nation that honors its word even if it be in respect to a non-Muslim.
It is my realization and affirmation that Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is Allaah's bondsman and a Messenger from Him sent to the entire humanity.
Allaah is the Truth.
Oh people! Fear Allaah the Most High and know that verily, Allaah has commanded us to be just in every aspect of our lives.
Allaah has informed us that it is imperative and compulsory upon everyone to be under the system of justice at every time and at every location.
Allaah says in His inimitable style that: "Verily, Allaah orders justice and kindness, and giving (help) to the relatives, and He forbids immoral sins, and evil and tyranny…." Q16 v 90
Allaah equally says: "Verily, Allaah loves those who deal with equity."
In an authentic Hadith recorded by Imam Muslim, Rasulullaah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "The just, who are fair in their decisions, families and those under their authority, will be on podiums made of light, to the right of the Throne."
Here this out: Allaah did not only command us to be just but He has categorically declared His love for those who deal with equity.
It is incumbent upon us Muslims to know that the position of Justice in Islam is great and its reward with Allaah is big.
Justice has many headings and it is compulsory on anyone to discharge his duties justly on those below him and those he is responsible for.
As for the Imam (the leader) it is imperative and compulsory upon him to deal justly among those under his leadership according to his capacity.
Allaah says: "Verily, Allaah commands that you should render back the trusts to those, to whom they are due: and that when you judge between them, you judge with justice…." Q4 v 58
Rasulullaah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Seven people will be under the shade of Allaah on the Day when there will be no shade but His." A just leader is among.
As for a Judge, it is compulsory upon him to be just when passing judgments. Allaah says: "And Judge between them with what was reveled from Allaah." Surah Ma'idah
Dawud (peace be upon him) was a prophet and a judge, in respect to this Allaah says: "O Dawud! Verily, We have placed you as a successor on the earth; so judge you between men in truth (and justice) and follow not your desire--for it will mislead you from the path of Allaah." Suratul Sad v 26
What about the Father, it is equally compulsory upon him to deal justly among his children. That he gifts no one among them exclusively without balancing it among all of his children.
No father is allowed in Islam to show any difference among his children. Rasulullah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commands us to deal justly between them.
You don't buy one a car, nor a house and leave the other hanging. This is injustice from Islamic perspective.
In Islam, there is no difference between a male and a female child when it comes to just dealing and equity. The father must be just.
What about the husband, it is incumbent and compulsory upon him to deal justly between his wives. This is Islam….
Allaah commands the husband to relate with his wives with that which is good and with justice and equity. Never to prefer one above the other in terms of discharging his responsibilities to them.
To the husband, Allaah says: "...so do not incline too much to one of them as to leave the other hanging." Q4v129
Qur'an is the only Religious Book on the face of earth that asks Men to marry only one wife on the grounds of Justice.
Allaah says: "And if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then (marry) only one." Q4v3
Islam is brimming with Justice. Touch it from any angle and it will attract you by its Justice and comprehensiveness.
It is equally compulsory and imperative upon the generality of the Muslims to be just in their statements.
Allaah says: "Do not allow your hatred for a people provoke you to injustice, be just, that is closer to piety." Q5v8
Whenever you want to utter anything, be Just in your proclamations and sincere in your actions.
Speak the truth even if it is detestable to you and the world.
Your truth will rescue you in shaa Allaah.
Stand for the truth even if it be against your parents. Islam must prevail above any blood ties.
Qur'an is truthful in its stories of the past nations and its submission on the events of the future. Qur'an is just in its judgments.
Islam is a religion that does not condone injustice, transgression, oppression and sins.
Nay! Islam is consistent with truth and justice at every time and at every location.
The Word of your Lord is brimming with truth and Justice….This is Qur'an….This is Sunnah…..This is Islam…
Oh humanity! This is our Religion, A Religion established upon justice in all of its ramifications. Alhamdulillah bi ni'matil Islam wal Eeman.
Yours in Islam Abdullaah Musa Abdul (Penabdul)
