"Human Rights in Islam" --- from Saint_Martin

When we speak of Human Rights in Islam we really mean that these rights have been granted by God; they have not been granted by any king or by any legislative assembly. The rights granted by the kings or the legislative assemblies, could also be withdrawn in the same manner in which they are conferred. The same is the case with the rights accepted and recognized by the dictators. They can confer them when they please and withdraw them when they wish; and they can openly violate them when they like. But since in Islam God has conferred human rights, no legislative assembly in the world or any government on earth has the right or authority to make any amendment or change in the rights conferred by God.  No one has the right to abrogate them or withdraw them. Nor are they basic Human Rights, which are conferred on paper for the sake of show and exhibition and denied, in actual life when the show is over. Nor are they like philosophical concepts, which have no sanctions behind them.


When we speak of Human Rights in Islam we mean those rights granted by Allah. They are a part and parcel of the Islamic Faith. Every Muslim or administrators who claim themselves to be Muslims, will have to accept, recognize and enforce them.


Among many known books of Sayyid Abul Ala Mawdudi, this is a short yet masterful exposition of the value and concept of Human Rights in Islam as noted in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. This masterpiece book gives the reader a clear idea of the Islamic political framework and the nature and concept of Human Rights in Islam. A very useful and valuable reference for Muslims in the West to make the Western style of human-rights concept in perspective.

".. administrators who claim themselves to be Muslims, will have to accept, recognize and enforce them." On a individual level that is obviously possible but how do you deal with that on a macro level? For example your premise is based on Islamic Faith. If you apply that to a region/country where there are ppl of other faith why would they accept your definition of human rights which is based on a religion they do not follow? So how does a muslim civil administrator deal with that?

It doesnt matter if muslims are in minority or majority in a region for this because you are implying that every muslim administrator must enforce the law as seen by Islam, whether he is a Florida State Trooper or a Custom official in zia international airport. So what I want to clarify is then are you implying every muslim has to follow ONLY the Islamic law and disregard all other laws. And then the obvious question as to how do u determine if the ppl who makes this assumption are qualified to convery God's message?
