Discussing rights and liberties in Islam, this examination focuses on three connected and complementary areas—education, work, and welfare—and how each is treated in the Qur’an. The Prophet and Pious Caliphs are used as examples as the book argues that the educated are more likely to enter the workforce and contribute to the community. Touching upon various topics, including the institutionalization of learning, the role of governments, and the responsibility to care for individuals in need, this record offers an understanding of human rights from an Islamic perspective. Those interested in Islamic Studies, law, and philosophy will be particularly intrigued.
