The third important
thing that we find in the Charter of Human Rights granted by Islam is
that a woman's chastity has to be respected and protected under all
circumstances, whether she belongs to our own nation or to the nation
of an enemy, whether we find her in the wild forest or in a conquered
city; whether she is our co-religionist or belongs to some other
religion or has no religion at all. A Muslim cannot outrage her under
any circumstances. All promiscuous relationship has been forbidden to
him, irrespective of the status or position
of the woman, whether the woman is a willing or an unwilling partner
to the act. The words of the Holy Quran in this respect are: "Do not
approach (the bounds of) adultery" (17:32).

1994 Pulitzer Prize winning photograph on the left, an African boy,
nothing but a skeleton, was trying to crawl towards a U.N. Food
Shelter, about one kilometer away. Behind his back, a few yards away
was a vulture waiting for the boy to die to feast. The vulture did
not attack the living boy. It could have. But it has God-given law
that it follows. Even the animals have law of God that they obey.
Not the man. So many governments, groups and individuals have become
worst than the vultures! May God have Mercy on the suffering
Fig and the Olive, And the Mount of Sinai, And this City (Makkah) of
security,- We have indeed created man in the best of moulds, Then
do We abase him (to be) the lowest of the low,- Except such as
believe and do righteous deeds: For they shall have a reward unfailing.
Then what can, after this, contradict thee, as to the judgment (to
come)? Is not Allah the wisest of judges?"(The Holy Quran, Surah 95)
Whosoever kills a human
being without (any reason like) manslaughter, or corruption on earth,
it is as though he had killed all mankind. And whoever saves a
life it is as though he had saved the lives of all mankind."
(The Holy Quran 5:32)
[This commandment is in
the Holy books of Jews and Christians also. There is the Day of
Judgment for all! May God guide us all to the right path. ameen.]
Do not kill a soul which
Allah has made sacred except through the due process of law ... (The
Holy Quran 6:151)

Islam is a message for the salvation of humanity.
It is to save not to destroy people. Islam is not terrorism. It is
not for self revenge. It is not hate, it is love. Law of Islam is
based on The Holy Quran and Sunnah. It is not what others do. There
is a strict code of Law even in wars. Those Muslims who go against
the teachings of Prophet Muhammad
and commit crimes
against humanity have to
face Allah T'ala one day and answer to the Almighty. We all do!
There is a Day of Judgment for all mankind! Let us be true followers
of Prophet Muhammad
"Do not the
Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together
(as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from
water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (The Holy Quran,
Is it not (the case)
that to God belongs whatever is in the heavens and on earth?
Is it not (the case) that God's promise (of the Day of Judgment) is
Yet most of them understand not.
It is He Who gives life and who takes it, and to Him shall you all be
brought back. O mankind! there has come to you a direction from
your Lord God and a healing for the (diseases) in your hearts,- and for
those who believe, a guidance and a Mercy.
Say: "In the bounty of God. And in His Mercy,- in that let them rejoice":
that is better than the (wealth) they hoard. (The Holy Quran, 10:55-58)
About 1400 years ago, in
his last sermon, ProphetMuhammad (peace be on him) said:
“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no
superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an
Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any
superiority over a white — except by piety and good action. Learn that
every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims
constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim
which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and
willingly. Do not therefore do injustice to yourselves. Remember one
day you will meet Allah and answer your deeds. So beware: Do not stray
from the path of righteousness after I am gone.”
