DUTIES TO SOCIETY

Print Friendly

This concept of social justice is achieved by giving people a better understanding of their individual duties in society and the reward thereof, as provided by Islam. The Messenger made education, being the measure and touchstone in this context, obligatory upon every Muslim, both men and women. More specifically, he said and knew that knowledge enabled one to distinguish right from wrong. A society’s progress depends upon the interaction between the individual and society, for this establishes and maintains a balance in human affairs. Humanity should always keep in mind that God created the universe for a particular purpose and that humanity has been asked to strive for its fulfillment.
