Abstract: Islam is a perpetual endeavour towards an equitable order, premised on submission to One God of all-encompassing benevolence who has gifted the human person t power to perceive and reason so as to discern the Truth. The believers are said by the Holy Quran to be '...in a bond of God, and a bond of the people ... bidding honour and forbidding dishonour, vying one with the other in good works...' They are asked to be securers of justice, not to be swayed towards inequity by hatred for a people, or love for the family or slavish deference to power and wealth. Humankind, says the Quran, has been created from a single soul, whatever its outward differences, for the purpose of striving together for goodness.a.
