Stand for Justice: The Holy Quran


Serve God, and join not
Any partners with Him;
And do good-
To parents, kinsfolk,
Orphans, those in need,
Neighbours who are of kin
Neighbours who are strangers,
The Companion by your side,
The way-farer (ye meet),
And what your right hands possess:
For God loveth not
The arrogant, the vainglorious;-

(Nor)those who are niggardly,
Enjoin niggardliness on others,
Hide the bounties
Which God hath bestowed
On them; We have prepared,
For those who resist Faith,
A Punishment that steeps
Them in contempt;-

(The Holy Quran, Chapter: 4, Verses: 36 and 37)

O ye who believe!
Stand out firmly
For justice, as witnesses
To God, even as against
Yourselves, or your parents,
Or your kin, and whether
It be (against) rich or poor:
For God can best protect both.
Follow not the lusts
(Of your hearts), lest ye
Swerve, and if ye
Distort (justice) or decline
To do justice, verily
God is well-acquainted
With all that ye do.

(The Holy Quran, Chapter: 4, Verse: 135)
