Islamic Views on Human Rights: Viewpoints of Iranian Scholars+PDF

Today’s world, plagued by war and greed, and media are inundated by the issues pertaining to human rights. What is the position of the Islamic Sharia regarding the Human Rights, as they are understood internationally?

Does the Islamic law adhere to The Human Rights? Does it respect some of the decrees and reject others? Why? Does Islamic law reject The Human rights altogether?
The present book does a magnificent job at offering a comprehensive, lengthy and thorough investigation to answer all the above questions.

Assuredly, human rights are the most complicated human issue in the twentieth century and a great challenge for the beginning of the twenty first century. Human rights are the ideology of modern man and suggestive of his identity and status in the modern world. Today, many acts, conducts, decisions, and plans are weighed with the touchstone of human rights, and even the adversaries in the final analysis try to avoid laying bare their contrary views. At all events, human rights have turned into a dominant discourse within the universal system. And the terms arising from them such as self-determination, fundamental freedoms, humanitarian conducts even in the case of the guilty ones, women’s rights etc. have more or less been instrumental in different policies.
