About this product
- Description'The Dignity of Man: An Islamic Perspective' provides the most detailed study to date on the subject of the dignity of man from the perspective of Islam. M H Kamali sets out the proclamations on human dignity found in the Qur'an and then discusses topics pertaining to or resulting from human dignity: the physical and spiritual bility of man; God's love for humanity; the sanctity of life; and the necessity for freedom, equality and accountability. Finally, the author examines the measures that the Shariah has taken to protect human dignity and to promote it in social interaction. The discussion is here presented in the light of the debate on the universality of human rights as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This book goes a long way towards exploring an alternative to Western concepts of human rights. 'The Dignity of Man: An Islamic Perspective' is part of a series of studies on fundamental rights and liberties in Islam and should be read with its companion volumes of 'Freedom, Equality and Justice in Islam', and 'Freedom of Expression in Islam'.
