ISLAMIC SOCIAL SYSTEM


The social system in Islam is geared towards the preservation of the human race. It is uniquely built around the concepts of responsibility. Unlike the capitalistic concept of 50% shared activity, Islam defines the specific duties of each person and holds him or her equally important in the progress of society.

Social disease such as crime and violence, drugs and alcoholism, rape and sexual harassment, teenage pregnancy and homosexuality are the norms of the Western life. Islam provides a strong foundation for a high standard of morality and the values that support the society from friction and subversion.

To practically achieve this goal, Islam directs the people towards establishing marital relations and prevents sexual activities outside it, thus preserving family structure, the central building block of the Islamic community. By preserving the sanctity of the family, the Islamic system provides a strong foundation for a high standard of morality and values that support the society from friction and subversion.

Islam organizes the interaction of men and women in public and private life, establishes a dress code for both, encourages marriage at an early age and impose punishments for adultery, fornication and homosexuality. Furthermore, the social system stresses the importance of parentchild relation and regulates custody and monetary responsibility. It addresses the responsibility towards grand parents, uncles, aunts and cousins from both sides of the family. Islam stresses very strongly neighbours affairs and encourages providing for the needy.

The Western culture view women as a sex objects used for the temptation and pleasure or to sell products. The Capitalistic machine forced women to abandon their families to make end's meet.

Islam considers the woman a human being whose primary mission is to be a mother, an honorable goal; therefore, she is to be protected and honored. To achieve the social goal, many rules and regulations exist in the Islamic legal code. The Islamic life style normally prevents unnecessary mixture men and women that preserve the integrity of their relationship.

Islam addresses both men and women regarding creed, worship, social, economical and political; but due to the difference between them some rules are exclusively for women while others are for men. Islam obliges the man to provide for his family, while the woman is responsible for the care of her husband and children. These social regulations preserve humanity and works with the socio-political structure for the betterment of whole. In all activities, men and women live their private and public life within specific rules based on the orders of the Creator, Allah.
