  • Why justice is important for Muslims
    • The Qur'an teaches that Allah is a just God and will reward good deeds and punish bad deeds on the Last day
    • Islamic teaching on the Last day is all about the good being rewarded and the bad punished. This is the basis for justice
    • Islam teaches that being a vice-gerent of Allah, Muslims have to behave justly towards other people
      • This will ensure that the world is governed in a fair way. Muslims believe that Shari'ah law is the way to do this and Shari'ah courts make sure justice is carried out
    • Islam teaches it is unjust to be involved in charging interest because it takes money from the poor and gives it to the rich
      • Muslims believe that the just thing to do is to take money from the rich and give it to the poor
    • Islam teaches that all people should ave equal rights before the law and Muslims should work for a fairer sharing of the world resources
      • The third pillar of Islam- Zakah, Muslim aid, Islamic relief are all trying to bring justice into the world
