Islamic View on Peace and Justice in Society


Muslim Participation on Equal Terms

Muslims also need to be themselves: gaining leverage over their own story, and while persisting in their life-transaction (i.e. way of life, worldview, dīn ), they contribute to society in many positive ways.
They ”enter the public square to shape decision-making and to hear accurate news.” Travelling Home, A H Murad
NB: The Eurabia myth of the 'Islamisation of Europe' is fake and a fantasy to sow fear in the population.

{ وَلِكُلٍّ وِجْهَةٌ هُوَ مُوَلِّيهَا فَاسْتَبِقُوا الْخَيْرَاتِ أَيْنَ مَا تَكُونُوا يَأْتِ بِكُمُ اللّٰهُ جَمِيعًا إِنَّ اللّٰهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ }

{And every one has a goal toward which he turns; so vie with one another in good works. Wherever you are, Allah will bring you all together. Certainly Allah has power over all things.} 2-148

The Ideal Norms of Society

As Muslims we know that we have to improve and reform society, no society is ideal.

The ideal norms of society as envisaged by the Quran and Hadith include the establishment of justice and equality before the Divine Law, economic fair play, and the just distribution of wealth, while legitimizing private property and encouraging economic activities, equitable treatment of all (Muslims and non-Muslims), and the creation of a religious social environment in which the presence of the Transcendant is never forgotten. In such a society family bonds are honoured over tribal ones, but the truth is considered even above family affiliations.

Leading a good life, Allah did nor create us to be miserable:

{Whoever does good whether male or female and he is a believer, We will most certainly make him live a happy life, and We will most certainly give them their reward for the best of what they did.} 16-97

Islam strikes a balance between this world and the next, as Muslims are adressed as the middle community in the Quran (2-143). God chose for Muslims the golden mean, i.e. avoidance of extremes in ethical and religious actions. And as a middle community they may create a balance between various communities and nations.

The role of Islam is to save human souls, and on the Day of Judgement, human beings will see what they have on their scales of good and bad actions, and those which were done purely for God.

Removing Evil Is Self-Evident

 On the other hand in normal situations it would be spontaneous and straightforward to stop evil influences and damaging circumstances.

In this postmodern world, however, with the loss of the sense of the sacred, the lies, fake news, main stream media spreading tall stories, 'think tanks' sowing division and hate in society, it's not always easy for people without a living tradition (Islam) to know what is right and what is wrong.

Ruling elites have always an interest in molding the public discourse for their interests, and ”the luxury of one class is counterbalanced by the impoverishment of another”, nationally and globally.

They also have a related interest to keep people ignorant about this world and about those who want to govern this world in order to increase their wealth and comfort.

This is why throughout the history of mankind prophets were sent to affirm the truth and stand for what is right and just, to defend the downtrodden and inform people about the soon-to-come return to God - Allah (may His Majesty be exalted!) and His judgement, so that they may prepare for it.

Muslim have been told clearly by our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ what to do when confronted with evil:


 On the one hand we are strongly cautioned and recommended not to make haste against the disbelievers, because Allah will take care of them, i.e. punish or pardon them…

Allah (may His Majesty be exalted) says:

{ أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّا أَرْسَلْنَا الشَّيَاطِينَ عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ تَؤُزُّهُمْ أَزًّا }

{ فَلَا تَعْجَلْ عَلَيْهِمْ إِنَّمَا نَعُدُّ لَهُمْ عَدًّا }

{ Don't you see that We have set the Evil Ones (the Shaitans) on against the unbelievers, to incite them with fury (to incite the unbelievers (cunnigly) to sin/ to provoke them)? }
{So make no haste against them (i.e. the disbelievers), for We but count out to them a (limited) number (of days)}

They should not hurry their demise by seeking their punishment or destruction, for Allah may be postponing their destruction in order to give them the opportunity to manifest their ultimate inner character and destiny (see 19.75c).

Dont worry about the wordly success of evil, but do your duty & trust in Allah (tawakkul ).fn 2527

Yusuf Ali:
Under the laws instituted by God, when evil reaches a certain stage of rebellion and defiance, it is left to gather momentum and to rush with fury to its own destruction. It is given a certain amount of respite, as a last chance: but failing repentance, its days are numbered. The godly therefore should not worry themselves over the apparent worldly success of evil, but should get on with their own duties in the spirit of trust in God.

  On the other hand are we commanded to stand for what is right…
(In 3 ways - hadith)

  • In the cause of right and justice Prophet Muhammad (the blessings and peace of Allah upon him) could be resolute and severe but more often than not, his severity was tempered by generosity.
    → His ﷺ Manners and Disposition (1.)

     About Prophet Muhammad 3 ﷺ
    Athar Husain, "The Message of Mohammad"

  • Islam can reacquaint the West with its obscured aim of putting the interest of man into the center of economic policy, demanding that social justice and human dignity will really be given preference over other economic targets.

     How Muslims can contribute to the West
    Murad Wilfried Hofmann

  • Iblis/ Satan rebelled and in his pride replaced intelligence with ordinary logical reasoning. But intelligence is a light which (is meant to) open up human understanding to the Divine truths and Lights from Heaven.

    Now-a-days in the West, concepts like ‘gender justice’ or ‘gender equality’ are promoted, whereas justice is realizing and nurturing capabilities which God has gifted. Otherwise man will be unjust against his own soul: {O mankind, your injustice is only against yourselves, the enjoyment of worldly life. } 10-23

     On the Crisis of the Modern World

  • The Muslim ummah is a nation of justice and moderation.
    Why is this so?
    Because it witnesses every deviation from the 'straightforward path' in this life and in the Hereafter. Islamic texts call upon Muslims to excerise moderation and to reject and oppose all kinds of extremism.

     Notes On Islamic Awakening Between Rejection and Extremism
    Shaykh Yusuf al-Qaradawi

  • When the Quran declares justice and equality as the basis for peaceful living, the haters blame the Quran to be a violent book of unworthy significance.

In the Early Days of Islam

In the early days of Islam, when a man went out of his house, his wife and daughters would say to him: 

"Beware of illegal earning, for we can bear hunger and hardship, but we cannot endure the Fire."
