Human Rights

Human rights are moral principles or norms that describe certain standards of human behaviour and are regularly protected as natural and legal rights in municipal and international law. They are commonly understood as inalienable, fundamental rights "to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being" and which are "inherent in all human beings", regardless of their nation, location, language, religion, ethnic origin, or any other status.

  2. Human Rights are the rights granted by The Creator, Allah, The Glorious, to every human being with out discrimination. Human Rights aim to provide every human being with an equal share in responsible freedom ( with out harming himself of others) and dignity and basics requirements of life with respect.

We are sure that whatever is forbidden by Allah, is definitely damagingly harmful now and in the future. Wassalam.
