No one is perfect therefore if you are showing

This preview shows 2 out of 4 pages.

No one is perfect; therefore if you are showing another’s faults, then your faults will be pointed out as well . Another issue is that the hadith also states that although you should never point out another’s faults, it more specifically says that you should never point out another’s faults that are not known to engage in immoral activities . Therefore, if someone is considered a criminal, then you should point theirs out to the proper authorities . This could be problematic, just for the simple fact of “who are we to decide if someone is morally corrupt?” I guess you would be deciding if they are, under the conditions stated in the hadith or the Qur’an, but what happens when you are dealing with non-muslins and you’re deciding how to go about the situation . Do you bring your own beliefs in to play and determine who they are from your own moral beliefs?

Being accepting of another person’s apology, ties in to being forgiving and tolerant . With forgiveness and tolerance, you’re in turn encouraging brotherhood and community . I could also explain how virtue and morality tie into Islam and being a righteous Muslim, but they are pretty self-explanatory . I want to explain how these ideas tie into justice for the Muslim community . Justice in Islam is giving others equal treatment . Justice stands next to worship in one of the virtues that Allah holds highest . In Islam, justice transcends race, religion, ethnicity, gender; etc… regardless of who it is for or against, you should always treat everyone fairly . Although, it’s hard to hold to this way of living sometimes, I would definitely say that I’m seduced by this understanding of the human condition . It is apparent from reading Sandel’s book that we as humans have our own moral codes, in which we live by, but when it comes to a governing body of moral laws which we should abide by; we start to have conflicting ideologies . I would say that the reason there are so many different ways of thinking about justice is because of the fact that many people are raised with different religions or no religion at all . Morals for the most part come from the places you know and most people would say that the earliest thing they remember being instilled with is religion and the way of life that the religion taught . To say that you are going to make decisions void of what you were taught is kind of ludicrous to me . How do you make decisions based on what is best for a society when most ideals come from a religious background . Most societies are governed by a religion or have vestiges of a religion present in their ideologies . Even America was based out of a religious background because those who were oppressed by a religious society came over here to practice religion freely .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
