Human Rights and Islam

Tahira Khan (Author)

This timely book, addresses the question of human rights in the international context, focusing in particular on the interaction between human rights as a value and norm in international relations and Islam as a constituent of political culture in particular societies. Human Rights in Islam lays emphasis on the revival of true Islamic form of social justice and human rights from the beginning to present day. Rights and justice are the most important constitutional principles which have been confirmed both in the Qur’an and the Hadith. Questions over the compatibility of Islam and Human Rights have become a key area of debate in the perceived tensions between Islam and the West. In many ways, discussion over the stance of Islam in relation to such factors as gender rights, religious freedom, social and political freedom, and other related issues represents a microcosm of the broader experience.
