Justice: Islamic and Western Perspectives
By Zafar Iqbal
Paperback 80 Pages
The Islamic Foundation, Leicester UK (2007)
Meant for the general reader, this book gives a historical expose of the Western definitions of justice - mainly economic and social justice - from Plato to the modern day and compares it with the Islamic concept of justice.
He draws upon the fundamental and central concepts of the Quran to the permanence and universality of that concept. He shows that the combination of adl (justice), qist (equity) and mizan (balance) goes towards creating that notion in comparison to the shifting definition of the Western conception which depends on which ideology is dominant.
JUSTICE: ISLAMIC AND WESTERN PERSPECTIVES is a thought-provoking monograph which provides a systematic and rigorous exposition of a range of social, economic and political views from the vantage point of Islam. Humanity is in a state of confusion and is torn apart by conflicting claims of civilization superiority. In the context of current misunderstanding on the east-west relationship, a comparative study of Justice: Islamic andWestern Perspectives could play a pivotal role in alleviating hostilities and providing a focal point for intellectual debate and dialogue among civilizations

O ye who
believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against
yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or
poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts),
lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily
Allah is well- acquainted with all that ye do.
