Government in Islam

Government in Islam
  In many cases it is the duty of every individual to support what is right and to see that law is enforced in an equitable manner. But there are cases in which this duty requires more energy, more specialized knowledge and more power­ful machinery than an individual can possess. The vital duty of `exhorting to good and restraining from evil' demands that in such cases all people should co‑operate to set up a powerful social organization ...

Hadrat Abu Talib's Role during the Total Boycott and Blockade of Muslims by Quraysh
By: Abdullah al-Khunayzi The polytheists became very angry when the Prophet (s) became so powerful and his mission spread so widely that many people of different classes and countries believed in sincerely to a degree that they preferred dying to give up their new belief when they were punished with severest kinds of torture. In fact they tolerated pains as if they enjoyed pleasures. The pain for the sake of the mission was sweeter than any ...

Islam and the Family System

Islam and the Family System
Sayyid Sa’eed Akhtar Rizvi A sensible and well-balanced family system is the very foundation of a happy life. Indeed, it is the root of an advancing civilization. Religion comes to take human beings nearer to Allah. Therefore, it must create an atmosphere conducive to that ideal; otherwise, it cannot achieve its goal. No religion can be regarded as complete unless it has a well-defined code of family life which expressly shows the exact ...

'Ilmul Usul pursues its derivation by defining the common elements in the process of deduction (Istinba-t)"A law of the Shari'ah is the legislation originating from Allah Almighty to regulate the life of man.

Superiority of Islamic Laws

Superiority of Islamic Laws
Undoubtedly, the above two interpretations of justice - which are cited as an example - are in total conflict and disharmony with each other in practice.

For example, we have a set of laws in Islam which, according to our ideological principles, are the best and most beneficial laws for society and certainly concordant with justice. However, ...

The Tendency of Rationalizing The Shari’ah Laws

The Tendency of Rationalizing The Shari’ah Laws
By: Sayyid Muhammad RizviWhy we have to pray five times a day? Why dogs and pigs are regarded as ritually impure animals? Why an animal slaughtered un-Islamically is forbidden and ritually impure? These are but a few of the many ques­tions asked by our youths about the shari' ah laws. They want to rationalize every law of the shari'ah; they want to know the reason and purpose of the legislation of these laws.This chapter deals with this ...

The Ruler and Society

The Ruler and Society
Professing God's Unity and accepting Muhammad as His prophet bring in their wake innumerable consequences. If the Quran is God's Word and Muhammad His chosen messenger who "speaks out not of caprice" (LIII, 3), their instructions concerning all things must be obeyed. Faced with these facts of their faith, the Muslims soon developed a complicated science of the Shari'ah or Divine Law, a science which embraces every dimension of human conduct, ...

The Witnessing and Recording of Deeds

The Witnessing and Recording of Deeds
Abstract The Qur’an describes the Day of Resurrection as a mashhad, which means a place, time, or stage of witnessing (11:103, 19:37). It is by essence when the truth and hidden realities are disclosed (10:30, 86:9, 100:10). This is a central quality of that Day, by which the Qur’an has sworn (85:3). Whereas one’s book of deeds is his own soul (17:13-14), witnesses are external beings that have encompassed one’s deeds. Therefore, ...

Corporate Sponsored Education: The Limits Of Social Responsibility

Corporate Sponsored Education: The Limits Of Social Responsibility
The business sector increasingly subsidizes financially challenged institutions. Representative examples would include health care, major sports arenas, and penal facilities. Among the recent beneficiaries of corporate largesse are schools. Such assistance blurs social roles and raises serious moral concerns, especially those of moral agency. Education, more so than other social institutions, determines the kind of citizen and moral character a ...
