The Stone of Justice
A wonderful story from the past, plainly demonstrating the significance of social justice in Islam.
Allah's messenger (pbuh) said,'If the son of Adam had a valley full of gold, he would wish for another similar to it, for nothing can satisfy the eye of Adam's son except dust (death). And Allah forgives those who repent and beg his pardon' [Sahih Bukhari]
