The Stone of Justice
A wonderful story from the past, plainly demonstrating the significance of social justice in Islam.
'Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful. And return [in repentance] to your Lord and submit to Him before the punishment comes upon you; then you will not be helped.' [Al-Qur'an 39:53-54]
