A Brief Description of Islam as the Shi'ites Believe
27_ QURAN AND THE SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL NEEDS OF HUMAN
WE BELIEVE that whatever is needed in SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL dimensions of man is fundamentally found in the holy QURAN. All the governmental and political tenets, all the social principles, the bases of symbiosis, the fundamentals of war and peace, the elements of judgements and economics, and whatever is needed, can be traced in the BOOK and taken out for use, so as to alight the space of human life:__
"And We have sent down to you the BOOK, explaining all things, It is a GUIDE, a Mercy, and Glad tidings to Muslims."
THE HOLY QURAN _ S16: 89
This is why WE BELIEVE that Islam is not APART of politics and diplomacy. This belief makes the Muslims to rule over themselves, so as to revive the precious Islamic values in their societies, leading towards justice and equity. A Muslim Must be just and fair to his enemy as he does justice to friends:_
"O, Believers! Stand up firmly to hold JUSTICE, and be as a witness to ALLAH, even against yourselves or your parents or your kins, and whether it be against rich or poor for God is preferable to all that.
Follow not your lusts, lest you swerve. If you fail to do justice, verily Allah is aware of all that you do."
THE HOLY QURAN _ S4: 135
"O, BELIEVERS! Stand up firmly for the sake of Allah, and bear true witness, and let not the hatred for other men, turn you away from doing justice. Deal justly. Justice is nearer to PIETY. Have fear of Allah. He is aware of all that you do.
THE HOLY QURAN _ S5: 8
