This paper explores the concepts of Islamic human rights and social justice in Urdu and English. It argues that Islamic law provides a comprehensive framework for the protection of human rights and the promotion of social justice. The paper discusses the historical development of Islamic human rights and social justice, and it examines the key concepts and principles of Islamic law in this area. The paper also considers the contemporary application of Islamic human rights and social justice principles in a variety of contexts, including family law, criminal law, and international law. In Urdu, scholars have been particularly concerned with the application of Islamic principles to the realities of South Asia. They have worked to develop a nuanced understanding of human rights and social justice that is both grounded in Islamic tradition and relevant to the contemporary challenges faced by Muslims in the region. In English, scholars have made important contributions to the global discourse on human rights and social justice. They have challenged dominant Western conceptions of human rights and offered alternative perspectives that are informed by Islamic thought. The study of Islamic human rights and social justice is an ongoing and evolving process. As Muslims continue to grapple with the challenges of living in a globalized world, the insights of scholars from both Urdu and English will continue to be invaluable. These are just a few of the many promising avenues for further research in the field of Islamic human rights and social justice. As scholars continue to explore these issues, we can expect to gain a deeper understanding of the role of Islam in promoting human dignity and social justice in the world.
