Economic, Social and Cultural Human Rights:

Auther : Saleh Abdullah Al-Rajhi


The need to respect Human Rights has been more pressing than ever, particularly throughout the past decade, following the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the onset of the twenty first century. Concurrently, the Islamic Shariah has, unfortunately, been wrongly accused of violating and even abusing those rights. The West, by and large, trying to project itself as the patron and initiator of human rights, has forgotten that Islam safeguarded them long before the 1948 U.N. Declaration. The aim of this study is to examine, analyze and evaluate the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and compare it with human rights in Islamic Shariaah. It hopes to glean the contention between Islamic viewpoints and those of international organizations. It will further seek to determine whether Islamic Shariah contradicts the Universal Declaration or is compatible with it, and whether it has already (Shariah) got its own agenda for human rights. The study will hope to prove that Islam, more than 1400 years ago, was well ahead of the Declaration and sought to assure and ensure respect for human rights in a frame much wider than the Declaration purported to fulfill. To establish this comparison, the study will restrict itself to such articles in the Declaration that pertain to economic, social and cultural rights only.
