Neither Love nor Hatred can be Allowed to Compromise Justice, Emdad Khan

God sent his prophets so that mankind establishes Justice in Society. Unbiased justice for every section of society, no favor for own relatives or bias against even enemy. Not be bias against any ethnicity or any faith. Every human being is dignified in the eyes of law and deserves equal treatment, poor or reach, black or brown or white.

The Almighty, the Creator commanded His best creation mankind to establish Justice in society.

Islamic teaches Justice

لَـقَدۡ اَرۡسَلۡنَا رُسُلَنَا بِالۡبَيِّنٰتِ وَاَنۡزَلۡنَا مَعَهُمُ الۡكِتٰبَ وَالۡمِيۡزَانَ لِيَقُوۡمَ النَّاسُ بِالۡقِسۡطِ‌ۚ ….ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ قَوِىٌّ عَزِيۡزٌ‏ ﴿۲۵﴾

Indeed, We have sent Our Messengers with clear proofs, and revealed with them the Scripture/book and the Balance (justice) that mankind may keep up justice — Verily, God is All-Strong, All-Mighty. (57.25) AlHadeed

God commands for justice as we listen every Friday Jumah‏. khutbah

اِنَّ اللّٰهَ يَاۡمُرُ بِالۡعَدۡلِ وَالۡاِحۡسَانِ وَاِيۡتَآىِٕ ذِى الۡقُرۡبٰى وَيَنۡهٰى عَنِ الۡفَحۡشَآءِ وَالۡمُنۡكَرِ وَالۡبَغۡىِ‌ۚ يَعِظُكُمۡ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تَذَكَّرُوۡنَ

‏ ﴿۹۰﴾ Verily, God enjoins Al-Adl ( justice) and Al-Ihsân [iKindness], and giving (help) to kith and kin and forbids evil deeds, and Al-Munkar ( prohibited unlawful acts ) and Al-Baghy (iall kinds of oppression), He admonishes you, that you may take heed. (16.90)

Do Justice even against our own relatives whom we love

يٰۤـاَيُّهَا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا كُوۡنُوۡا قَوَّامِيۡنَ بِالۡقِسۡطِ شُهَدَآءَ لِلّٰهِ وَلَوۡ عَلٰٓى اَنۡفُسِكُمۡ اَوِ الۡوَالِدَيۡنِ وَالۡاَقۡرَبِيۡنَ‌ ؕ اِنۡ يَّكُنۡ غَنِيًّا اَوۡ فَقِيۡرًا فَاللّٰهُ اَوۡلٰى بِهِمَا‌ فَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا الۡهَوٰٓى اَنۡ تَعۡدِلُوۡا ‌ۚ وَاِنۡ تَلۡوٗۤا اَوۡ تُعۡرِضُوۡا فَاِنَّ اللّٰهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُوۡنَ خَبِيۡرًا‏ ﴿۱۳ “O You who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.” [4:135]

Justice for Enemy, No hatred. Do justice even, when we are dealing with the enemy.

يٰۤـاَيُّهَا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا كُوۡنُوۡا قَوَّا امِيۡنَ لِلّٰهِ شُهَدَآءَ بِالۡقِسۡطِ‌ وَلَا يَجۡرِمَنَّكُمۡ شَنَاٰنُ قَوۡمٍ عَلٰٓى اَ لَّا تَعۡدِلُوۡا‌ ؕ اِعۡدِلُوۡا هُوَ اَقۡرَبُ لِلتَّقۡوٰى‌ وَاتَّقُوا اللّٰهَ‌ ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ خَبِيۡرٌۢ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۸﴾ Here again Qur’an commands: “O you who believe! Stand out firmly for God, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to Piety: and fear God. For God is well-acquainted with all that you do.” [5:8] .

Let us all read, ponder and contribute to establish justice in our home, family, relatives, community, place of worship, neighbourhood, works and society we live.
