The Stone of Justice
A wonderful story from the past, plainly demonstrating the significance of social justice in Islam.
The Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) said 'I have not left anything that will bring you closer to Allah and distance you from the Hellfire, except that I have commanded you with it. And I have not left anything that will bring you closer to the Hellfire and distance you from Allah except that I have forbade you from it.' (Sahih Bukhari)
