This book examines the social aspects of Islam, clearly outlining the aims and duties of every Muslim in respect of vital issues in Islamic life and conduct. Reference is made in each chapter to the relevant passages of the Qur'an and Hadith. The subjects dealt with include human rights, the sanctity of life, women's rights, the duties of the Muslim in the workplace, the family, sexual relationships, alcohol, drugs, crime and punishments, green issues and the true meaning of jihad. The aim of the book is to show how Muslims strive to bring God-consciousness into every area of their daily lives, from the important and profound to mundane and simple tasks; and how, in this devotion and urge to serve, striving for the pleasure of their Lord, they find fulfillment and happiness.
