Social Justice in the Ancient World

By K. D. Irani; Morris Silver | Go to book overview

countries . . . we see the existence of the most atrocius poverty alongside the most scandalous opulence, together with all the tragedy inevitable in such a situation. In our community (of believers) it is no longer just a matter of the kind of cases which surprise journalists, as in Europe and America; there is a gulf, a bottomless chasm, between the social justice defined by Islam and the situation of Muslims to-day. ( Nait-Belkacem 1978: 151)

In conclusion, it is useful to quote another scholar, this time a Muslim cleric from King Abdul Aziz University in Mecca: "In this world which is called 'Islamic World,' you look and then you see a social reality which is not pleasing. Then you open your eyes and ascertain that there are social institutions which do not guarantee justice" ( Nait-Belkacem 1978: 151).
