Description from the publisher:
Allah said, what translated means, “O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do." (5:8). The appearance of the religion of Islam was one of the most important incidents ever witnessed by mankind. In fact, it was the most important incident because Islam came to establish the religion of truth and to offer mankind a complete way of life that organizes and regulates their creed, acts of worship and dealings with each other. Hence, Islam regulates the religious, economic, educational, judicial and political aspects of life and ensures mankind’s mutual cooperation in what will only bring about their happiness, both in this life and in the Last Life. Therefore, every truth that mankind need and search for in all these aspects, it will be found in Islam. In addition, Allah said, what translated means, “It is he Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam).” (9:33), thus indicating the vital importance and the high status of Islam in people’s life. Hence, whenever there is a type and form of truth that is being called unto, Islam calls unto it first. Islam calls unto it first. Islam also calls unto justice between Muslims, in particular, and between all peoples, in general, however hard ensuring justice may be. Ensuring and establishing justice amongst themselves and treat others with fairness, honesty and good intentions. Muslims must observe all this without infringing on the rights of Allah and His commandments. Furthermore, Islam considers justice and fairness as parts of Taqwa (fear of Allah), which is the scale with which the Muslims assume their deserved status with Allah. Finally, Allah know best among mankind who fulfills the terms of justice that He has ordained such as and foremost believing in him in Islamic Monotheism, for nothing escapes His Eternal Knowledge.
