Justice – Islamic and Western Perspectives


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 Qur’an 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.
