Teachings of Quran about the Human Rights.

Teachings of Quran about the Human Rights.
Man has been given certain rights by Almighty Allah. The issue of Human Rights has been addressed in Holy Quran in great detail. Every human being irrespective of the age, sex, color, race, religion, land and nationality is entitled to the basic human rights defined by Almighty Allah in Quran. Quran has equally ranked the entire humanity in reference to the human rights.

Quran Says “Every human child is equally worthy of respect, thus on account of one's genesis there can be no discrimination; there is no difference between one man and the other: (17:70)”. These rights have been given to man by Allah Almighty and no ruler or emperor can abolish them.

The most basic human right is the right to live. Quran says “. . . do not take any human being's life (the life) which God has declared to be sacred -- otherwise than in (the pursuit of) justice: this has He enjoined upon you so that you might use your reason” (Surah 6: Al-An'am: 151). The second right of human being is the right to respect. Quran Says “Now, indeed, We have conferred dignity on the children of Adam” (Surah 17: Al-Isra':70).

Then comes the right to respect for which Quran says “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 serve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do” (Surah 4: An-Nisa': 13f).

The other human rights according to Quran are: The right to freedom, Right to privacy, Right to protection from slander, backbiting and ridicule, Right to acquire knowledge, Right to Work, Right to Good life and so on.

RE: Teachings of Quran about the Human Rights.
"The other human rights according to Quran are: The right to freedom, Right to privacy, Right to protection from slander, backbiting and ridicule, Right to acquire knowledge, Right to Work, Right to Good life and so on."

In countries where Muslims rule there is no freedom of religious belief given non-Muslims like me and many other types of believers in the Creator. If you claim otherwise you are not telling the truth.

The "right to protection from slander, backbiting and ridicule"...is for people who think protecting their egos is a higher priority than willingness to stand up for their beliefs against criticism. This is just one step away from State sanctioned censorship of ideas and political and religious affiliation.

If a non-Muslim is forbidden to practice their religious beliefs in public in Muslim majority lands it follows that they will be and are forbidden to learn and teach others about the knowledge they've gained.

The only authentic spiritual path to the Creator is one you yourself create-not riding on the path of another human being who isn't you. You, as an individual, cannot form a true spiritual relationship with God if you are going through another man's work. Your relationship with the Creator can only be established by you, no other human being can do it for you. If you arrive through personal effort at a religious belief system the same as Muhammad's, then use him to confirm your own. But chances are high that if you have freedom to develop your own personal relationship with God it will be uniquely yours and that is what God wants, not clones of one man, not a religious monoculture, but human variety matching the variety of human beings, each one precious to God as individuals, not as cogs in a mass movement which always falls prey to political pollution.

Good post Muhammad.

While I agree somewhat with biomystic that these rules aren't adhered to as they should be in many Muslim countries, I think that's more a reflection on human nature than it is a problem with Islam.

The greatest strength is in resisting provocation.
