The Stone of Justice
A wonderful story from the past, plainly demonstrating the significance of social justice in Islam.
Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said: 'Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak a good word or remain silent. And whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should show generosity to his neighbour. And whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should show hospitality to his guest.' (Sahih Al-Bukhari)
