An excerpt from the book:
The Ministry of Justice in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia held three symposiums during the month of Safar 1392 H (1982 G). The Minster of Justice and eminent scholars and university professors attended along with four eminent European canonists and scholars: the ex-Foreign Affairs Minister of Ireland and the Secretary of the European Legislation Committee; a well-known scholar of Oriental and Islamic Studies Professor; an eminent professor of Law and the Director of the Human Rights Magazine published in France; some of the eminent lawyers of Appellate Court in Paris.
The Muslim scholars in attendance explained the concept of Islam as a way of life in comparison with other competing concepts, illustrating the main rules of Islam and the Shari‟ah and the details of such general rules and principles. They explained the value, benefits and effectiveness of the Islamic capital punishments that are prescribed against serious crimes committed against innocent people and society. They explained in detail that such capital punishments are rational penalties that preserve the peace, safety and security of the society at large. The Europeans expressed their admiration of the detailed explanations given by the Muslim scholars on these types of punishments and admired the concept of the human rights in Islam. Mr. McBride the head of the European delegation, declared: “From this place, and from this Islamic country, the human rights must be declared and announced to people all over the world and not from any other country. Muslim scholars must declare these unknown human rights to the international public opinion. In fact, due to the ignorance about these human rights and lack of proper knowledge about them, the reputation of Islam and the Islamic ruling and governing is distorted in the eyes of the rest of the world.”
This booklet is an introductory discourse on the subject of the human rights in Islam. I hope and pray that this discussion will open avenues for those who are keen to know more about the truth of Islam that has been deliberately and severely misconstrued and misinterpreted, especially by some secularists, modernist Muslims, as well as the enemies of Islam. I urge the readers to explore more about Islam as a way of life through reliable and sound sources, without any preconceived notions. I feel obliged to offer any assistance to the individuals who are keen to learn and know more about Islam as a way of life. Muslims calling others to Islam should be sincere in their intention, seeking only the pleasure of the Almighty Allah in this life and in the Hereafter to enjoy the permanent abode in Jannah, and purifying their motives from any personal gains. One of the Companions of Allah‟s Messenger once said when he was asked about the reason for his participation in the fight for the cause of Allah “We came in order to liberate people from worshiping other people and the injustices caused by other religions, to let them into the justice of Islam.” As for the divine reward in the Hereafter, we Muslims believe that there are two permanent abodes in the Hereafter, without a third: either the Jannah, of bliss and eternal happiness, or else the Hellfire of eternal torture. Jannah is the graceful reward from Allah to those who obeyed His Commands.
