Justice is next to piety

SHARE

SHAFAQNA – Allah (SWT) in Ayah 8 of Surah Al-Ma’edah says: “O’ those who believe, stand out firmly for Allah (SWT) and be just witnesses, and let not the hatred of others make you divert to wrong and depart from justice. Be just; that is next to piety, and fear God, as Allah (SWT) is well aware of all that you do.”

Piety is the aim of worshipping God as is described in Ayah 21 of Surah Al-Baqarah: “O’ people, worship your God who created you and those who came before you, that you may become pious.” Therefore, if a person wants to become pious and be honoured in this world and the next must always be just and act justly even towards the enemies as mentioned in Ayah 13 of Surah Al-Hojarat: “Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah (SWT) is the one who is the most pious.”
