HUMAN RIGHTS FOR EVERYONE

Human Rights in Islam

hUMAN rIGHTS IN THE QUR'AN

SURAH | AL-HUJURAAT

O’mankind, we have created you from a male and a female and made you tribes, so that you may identify each other. Surely Allah is all knowing, all aware.

— Chapter 49, Verse 13

rIGHTS IN islam

  • Rights of the Almighty God
  •  Rights of the Prophet
  •  Rights of Parents
  •  Rights of Husbands
  •  Rights of Wives
  •  Rights of Children
  •  Rights of Neighbors
  •  Rights of Animals
  •  Rights of Properties (Public and Private)
  •  Rights of the Environment

EQUALITY OF RIGHTS

Nobody is allowed to take pride, nor degrade others on the basis of:

  • Skin Color
  • Wealth and Income
  • Social Status
  • Rank
  • Family Lineage or pedigree

Mankind is judged based on moral integrity, and the way one fulfills their obligations to Allah (SWT) and His creation.

The entire human race is one family. The division into nations, social groups, and communities are meant only to organize, identify, and learn about another.

ISLAMIC SPIRITUALITY AND HUMAN RIGHTS

The highest aim of spirituality is to make other humans happy, satisfied, and content while bearing a broken heart within oneself. To sacrifice one’s own inner peace in order to create a more peaceful world for others is the highest aim of Islamic spirituality.

The lowest aim of spirituality, or the minimum, is to not hurt others when one cannot bring them happiness in a way that would be beneficial.
