  • Lettera Dei Diritti Nell'Islam (Risalat al-Hoquq)
    by: Dell Imam Ali ibn al-Hosseyn Zeyn al-Abidin

    La Lettera dei Diritti è un trattato dell’Imam Zeyn al-°Abidin che parla dei diritti dell’individuo in una prospettiva islamica, che diverge dalla maggior parte dei punti di vista dell’Occidente moderno, in quanto l’Islam considera i diritti umani innanzitutto in termini di responsabilità, per cui la parola “diritti” si dovrebbe meglio tradurre come doveri, obblighi o responsabilità, poiché il trattato non riguarda direttamente i diritti dell’individuo, ma piuttosto i diritti degli altri che l’individuo deve osservare.

    by: Seyyed Hosseyn Nasr

    Nonostante la presenza della violenza in molte regioni del mondo a partire dall’Irlanda al Libano fino al bacino del Pacifico e coinvolgente molte religioni dal Cristianesimo all’Induismo, il mondo occidentale associa l’Islam, più di ogni altra religione, con la violenza. La conquista musulmana della Spagna, le Crociate – che non furono cominciate dai Musulmani – e la dominazione ottomana dell’Europa orientale hanno prodotto un ricordo dell’Islam legato alla forza e al potere.
