The right to freedom of belief

“Say, O ye that reject faith~ (Islam) worship not that which ye worship nor will ye worship nor will ye worship that which I worship, and I will not worship that which ye have been wont”.

Islam also stress on the right of honour and in Islamic context. The human right must be fulfill or managed because Allah says”. Islam is not only for Muslims its for all human beings. Islam also give the citizen right. Islamic Hadood limitze the right of people.

Islam gives the human rights both men and women, if the women have charity also have men because in Islam men and women have equal right to property. The good parameter also for men and women. This legalize their rights and no one can do anything out of the Hadood which can be registered or produced by God, and Hadith or Quran.
