'40 on Justice - The Prophetic Voice on Social Reform.' A collection of 40 Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad, salla Allahu alayhi wa Sallam, focusing on the notion of social justice in Islam. Justice is essential to the survival and flourishing of any civilisation. The words of God and His Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, remind us of the centrality of justice in our lives and our societies. Injustice (zulm) is condemned repeatedly in the Qur'an and the teachings of the Prophet may Allah bless him and grant him peace.
How are we to confront injustices in our personal lives, our communities and our societies? In an age of widespread injustices against the weak, the vulnerable and the dispossessed, how does Islam teach us to respond?
This unique commentary on forty hadith narrated from the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, explores Islamic teachings regarding social justice. It covers a wide variety of topics ranging from the environment, racism, family relations, the rights of the elderly, the disabled, and humanity more generally. This book will take you on a journey through Islam's rich heritage and the guidance it provides us to confront injustices in our societies today.
