URDU-RIGHT OF OWNERSHIP FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF MAN AS ALLAH’S VICEGERENT (CALIPH)
اشیاء پر قبضہ کا حق خلافت انسانی کے تناظر میں
Allah Almighty not only created man but bestowed him with divine book of rights and responsibilities also; hence, have made him authoritative. However, unlike the rest of the creatures, mankind has been declared the noblest of all the races; and hence, are accountable in the hereafter for their deeds in mortal world. Islam clearly defines the rules and regulations that encompass every aspect of life. Allah has bestowed man with the right of ownership on things he created. Likewise the prevalent system of capitalist economics, Islam reveres the rights and status of an individual, even considers individual's ownership and authority seminal in all aspects of its jurisdiction. In the same coin, Islam expects individuals to respect the others' ownership on things Allah has granted. This is what makes man distinctive from the rest of the universe that he follows His word and is technically considered as His second.
