Rights in Islam
Islam has prescribed that its followers give people their due rights. Parents, spouses, children,
neighbors; all are given specifc rights according to their specifc roles in this world. Accordingly,

society. Thisspreads love and unity and prevents the society from fragmenting.Allah says:“Worship
