The Stone of Justice
A wonderful story from the past, plainly demonstrating the significance of social justice in Islam.
The Final Messenger of God said, 'If the whole world were to gather together to benefit you they would only benefit you with that which Allah had already written for you and if the whole world were to gather to harm you they could only harm you with that which Allah had already written to harm you. The pen has been lifted and the ink has dried (meaning everything has been decreed or settled)'. [At-Tirmithi]
