Declaration of Islamic International Law

Declaration of Islamic International Law


The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has revoked all those customs and practices of the days of ignorance (Pre-Islamic days) which were based on aggression, barbarity, terrorism and all such inhuman practices and has declared them as untrustworthy.


He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) freed humanity from the unjust systems of the days of ignorance and granted humanity the Islamic system, whose very basis is justice and peace, whose very objective is providing justice to the wronged, to attend to the pleas of the weak and the downtrodden and give the rights due to the people.  In this eternal draft, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) declared and granted those basic rights to human beings, which let alone being given, had not even entered the thoughts of men.  The great sermon of the Last Hajj was the starting point for the Law of Human Rights.  He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) not only declared human rights, but also declared their implementation.  In Madina and the whole Muslim state, this law was implemented.


After the II World War, when the wise and the elite realized the state of humankind, then for the first time, the idea of deciding human rights and according them was raised. Then based on this Islamic system of human rights, the declaration of international human rights was made.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had declared human rights more than 1300 years before the II World War.


Even after the acceptance of the declaration of human rights, superpowers still had many weak nations under their thumb and use the same declaration to serve their own needs and make life difficult for those nations.  In this way, the law which, as claimed by the intellectuals, was to accord human rights to others has itself become an instrument supporting barbarity and terrorism.


If the universal rights given in the Sermon of the Last Hajj are given legal status in the world, implemented and its violations are prosecuted, then aggression, oppression, etc, will vanish from this world and there will be such peace that it will be felt in each and every aspect of human life.
