ALL Praise is due to God and may God exalt the mention of His Prophet and render him and his household, his Companions, and those who follow their way safe from every evil, and grant them security on the Day of Resurrection.
Every society must ensure for its citizens the rights that guarantee for them their basic needs and security, and enable them to feel a sense of belonging and attachment to the larger social group.
Individuals need to feel secure and have a sense of belonging in order to perform their tasks and duties in a satisfactory manner Presently, three distinct trends are discernible in our global society.
The first trend exaggerates the right of the individual over the society.
This trend gives the individual full freedom to do as he pleases with minimal restrictions.
Unfortunately this leads to a chaotic social situation because when unlimited freedom is granted to the individual, selfish desires predominate which bring harm to the community.
