Classification Of Mankind In Islam

Islam's communal ethics are against the hostile critics and stands up for the rights of all the righteous. H.G. Wells says: "Islam created a society more free from widespread cruelty and social oppression than any society that had ever been in the world before" (Outline of History).

Quran recitation tells us bout the rights of the mankind. They are all equal in the eyes of Allah. Islam aspires at the creation of a classless humanity by eradicating all likely communal confrontations (through rotating the distinct interests).

In the sphere of economics, Islam lays down the standard that riches should not be permitted to circulate amidst the rich only, and envisages, through its regulations.
Islam stands for the "Cooperative Commonwealth of the Pursuers of Righteousness".

Taken as a entire, the Islamic state is a "welfare state" where sovereignty pertains to Allah solely and no human being has a right to rule other human beings except in the title of Allah and as asserted by His Will, and where no one, not even the Head of the State, is overhead the law. Absolute Justice is the watchword and the Establishment of Righteousness is the goal.

H.A.R. Gibb says: "Within the Western world Islam still maintains the balance between exaggerated opposities. Opposed equally to the anarchy of European nationalism and the regimentation of Russian communism, it has not yet succumbed to that obsession with the economic side of life which is characteristic of present-day Russia alike." (Whither Islam?).

There is no one in this world that is not equal to the other and the only discriminating thing is factor called taqwa. On which human beings are classified in the eyes of Allah.

Islam In Respect Of Imitation And Modernity

There are many disbeliefs and uncertainty among us (Muslims) that have no true sense or meaning which can be changed in any sense. If we are involved in Quran Recitation on a regular basis we can learn from the great source to clear any ambiguities from our minds.

People who are forced or made to think that Muslims do not get along with western economical and social aspects, these disbeliefs are often added with the idea that Islam does not have or does not have an idea of progression which requires to be modified according to the western society. These are incorrect as we know the truth remains to be unquestioned while these superficial conclusions are made by those who ignore the fact of being Muslims and the lack of knowledge in them restrain them from understanding the importance and purpose if Islam.

Forgetting the purpose and basic idea behind Islam which we are expected to follow is lost and sense of betrayal is perceived by the followers for adopting western society just for the sake of being acceptable whereas the truth is that people who seek knowledge and search the difference between right and wrong will make a difference and Allah the almighty will help then to be guided in the right way.

Lack Of Knowledge And Rights Of Women

For many of us the lack of knowledge and fact of reality we are assumed to be left over in situations on which we do not know much about our religion and left over to believe on something’s that are told by someone who might or might not even have more information, but due to inappropriate knowledge we are somewhat forced to believe the convincing party.

This has came to my attention as I recently came across an article which mentioned women rights in Islam and tried to de-motivate the readers by pointing out the divorce issues between husband and wives. As read it through the content clearly said that in Islam a husband can just divorce his wife without any reason by just repeating the words “I divorce you”. Surprisingly I am forced to understand how modern age media and other Non-Muslims can make out of Islam and what is the picture that is being presented while the truth is opposing to many situations which you are not sure it is the utmost duty of one to consult Quran as an ultimate source of supreme guidance and if unable to find look thoroughly other sources.

While the truth remains to be worth knowing is that divorce is a mutual agreement to end their relationship of wife and husband. While after the delivery of those three particular words they are bound for approximately three months to decide and reconsider upon their decision before they actually can call out to be separate.

Say: `Fighting therein is a great transgression but a greater transgression in the Sight of Allah is to prevent mankind from following the Way of Allah, to disbelieve in Him, to prevent access to al-Masjid al-Haram (Makkah), and to drive out its inhabitants, and polytheism is worse than killing. And they will never cease fighting you until they turn you back from your religion if they can. And whosoever of you turns back from his religion and dies as a disbeliever, then his deeds will be lost in this life and in the Hereafter, and they will be the dwellers of the Fire. They will abide therein forever." (Qur'an 2:217) Remember, we as Muslims should hold on to faith and patience to an utmost situation and render and attacks a failure from the disbelievers.
