Harvard University says Quran verse is one of the greatest expressions of justice

By: Omar Bihmidine


The U.S. Harvard University, one of the most prestigious institutions in the world, has placed a Quran verse at the entrance of its faculty of law.

Described by the institution as one of the greatest expressions of justice in history, Verse 135 of Surah Al Nisa (The Women Chapter) is dedicated to humanity as the best expression defending and articulating justice.

“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.” Surat An Nisa 4: 135

According to the Saudi Arabic language daily Ajel, a Saudi Student at Harvard published the picture of the verse on his Twitter page.

“I noticed that the verse was posted by the faculty of law, which described it as one of the greatest expressions for justice in history,” Abdullah Jumma said.

Justice quotations were selected among 150 contributions from law school faculty, staff and students. Yet, the three unanimously appreciated and displayed at the faculty entrance are quotes taken from St. Augustine, the Holy Quran and the Magna Carta.

According to the official website of the university, The Words of Justice exhibition is a clear sign of humanity’s craving for fairness on this earth.

At present, visitors to Harvard, researchers in particular, have the chance to identify themselves with the best articulations of justice since time immemorial.

Harvard University, the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States, was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1636.

Happywho - u are only ridiculing yourself by expressing your ignorance about Islam. Who cares!

The nobility of the Quran and its sublime message and divine touch is well recognized by the knowledgeable and the scholars. A nincompoop like you can say whatever u like.

Even an of now with all the negative portrayal by media and western vested interest – Islam is thriving in all the continents. And surprise of all - hundreds of western women - with upper class Christian family background, well educated and economically impendent – embracing Islam. We take pity on you and pray - may God forgive you and enable you to see the truth.

In the name of Allâh

the most Gracious, the most Merciful

Alif – Lâm – Râ. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur’ân, and none but Allâh (Alone) Knows their meaning]

These are Verses of the Book and a plain Qur’ân.

How much would those who disbelieved wish that they had been Muslims.

[those who have submitted themselves to Allâh’s Will in Islam]

Leave them to eat and enjoy, and let them be preoccupied with (false)hope. They will come to know!

And never we destroy a township but there was a known decree for it.

No nation can advance its term, nor delay it.

I believe the better way to put this is: Thou shalt no other gods before me.

Islam is a fraud and was founded on Ishmael who did not find favor in the eyes of the God of Abraham.  This truism all practicing Muslims know and hate.  They will bow down before the God of Abraham on the judgement day and their name will not be found in the Lamb's Book of Life.  At that time there will be much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth as the truth of lie they believed is revealed to them.

But Islam also teaches that it blessed by Allah to lie to the infidel and deceive him, so this must ONLY apply among muzlims.

Change the Architect and Builder or Change Nothing.

The Muslim cultural behavioral variance inclusive of so called moderates and extremists informed by the Quran codex genocide construct of Other will and does inform consistently constantly terror and major schism in time and space. Peace for Other is only ever a short respite.

You mean like the Quranic edict which dictates that you can lie in the furtherance of Islam???  You mean kind of like that law.  So based on the Quran it is okay to lie within the law.  Because that would seem to be most unjust to me.  So if this is unjust then Quaranic law must be unjust therefore this statement has absolutely no meaning except as a platitude to make some fool feel good about Islam

This is an outrage. I guess none of the Harvard faculty suffered the loss of friends or family murdered din the name of Islam on 9/11, or murdered in Boston by the Chechen Family Terrorists.

Lmao Seriously? There were people of the Islamic faith that died that day, you are an idiot.

FearOkEvilNotOk 5pts

@Ritasolemanrico  You have got to be kidding. Thousands more Muslims are being killed by fellow Muslims for exactly the same reason as Other, it simply is irrelevant.

The Islamic construct of Other enables each in turn to be the subject of atrocities as it is with all genocide cultural codex constructs.

For what is a 'True' believer? You have to be a 'True' believer  to survive but the definition of 'True' believer moves as the ethical mean of the culture moves dependent on the number of extremist cultural enforcers and institutions.

The fact Muslims or anyone else have been killed comes under the heading if it happens Gods willed it therefore...

The point is Islamic adherents not Mickey Mouse adherents are perpetrating terror consistently constantly  - it has to be derived from a cultural codex misinterpreted or otherwise. If your saying the codex is not Islamic WHERE IS IT?

If you cannot identify this distinct ideology unconnected in anyway to the Islamic codex you have a real problem regards culpability given your an Islamic adherent.

Masha2 Allah . Islam is going to enter each home all over the world as it was in the past to ensure that people are living with justice, peace and happiness.

The divine connection of the noble Quran is all too obvious. It is indeed the message from Allah – the Almighty creator of the universe or else - how one can explain the miracle of an unlettered man to convey such profoundly just and enlightening communication not to mention scientific facts stated in Quran - that are being confirmed now - thousands years after! I am sure any open minded person may realize the truth. Glory to Allah and all praises be to Him and blessings and peace be on the prophet.

How about all the absolute trash also contained in the koran. Like iron being sent to earth after creation, killing Jews and Christians, and raping children as Mohammed did? Mohammed thought the sky was solid and would fall onto the earth.   The demonic connection is obvious to any rational observer

Lmao rape? Sex with consent isn't allowed out of marriage what makes you think that rape is allowed? You can't even touch a woman who isn't your wife... Why do people like you say or type things they don't know? And kill Jews and Christians? No, you kill someone you get killed, that's the Islamic law, only time killing is allowed is in war. Don't make up things and don't take things out of context. You can hate a religion but don't make up things.

Boy, are you ignorant!  get an education - better yet, read the koran. You obviously have NO idea what it says. You do NOT need a war to kill Christians, Jews and other versions of Islam. Mohammed raped children and women captured in war, and his followers are to follow his example. Ask the Brits about all the muzlim men grooming British teens for extended gang rape.  And just last week a mizlim preacher was released from jail after torturing and raping his 6 year old daughter and finally killing her.  Get your proctologist to help removing your head.

@Ritasolemanrico  It is not hate at least not on my part simply counting the bodies and broken live particularly of women. If you have a construct of not only women are less but Other are evil the combination informs what regards women of Others culture - respect?

@happlada is right if you have already, reread the Quran under a tree from Others perspective then take out a copy of Mein Kampf and do the same if you can come back and tell me the construct of Other is not exactly exactly the same you have a much worse bias problem than even I thought would be possible.

Mohammed did kill the Jews he had a treaty with because for no other reason that Mohammed felt the Jews were Other they could not be trusted and he did take at least one very young girl for his own from the Jewish women left he had allowed to survive the rest Mohamed sold into slavery.

And it was not the first time Mohammed used this excuse even for what were supposed treaty days.

Mohammed is therefore a ....... and a ....... Muslims therefore have via this cultural codex exemplar justification and authorization to be a ..... and a .........

What an example for us all?

Now @Ritasolemanrico  Mohamed being the Muslim codex exemplar what do you think the above behavior informs regards Muslims actions not all but this is not the point is it @Ritasolemanrico - is just one victim woman or man worth such a cultural codex? 

Your child, or is it because as with Mohammed it is Others so it does not matter they are less and evil they deserve the 'grievous harm' and 'severest penalty' coming Others way?

@FearOkEvilNotOk @Ritasolemanrico

Maybe you should do a little research, you sound misinfromed. Go to your local Mosque (place of worship for muslims) and ask questions there, they'll give you answers. Otherwise, please stop spreading lies.

@omarbirjas @FearOkEvilNotOk @Ritasolemanrico I very much wish they were lies - it would mean no Muslim terror - but wishful thinking based upon invalid assumptions does not appear to be working for me.

For the next morning I open the newspaper and what to I see. I turn on the television and what do I hear? No Islamic derived terror today?

If this was true you may be right? Are you? Tell me what am I lying about simply saying it does not prove anything. There is no supporting evidence.

Sayyed Qub ra writes in his Tafseer - Fi dhilal el quran that " islam is a Deen- way of life- when there is no one to convey its message, Quran will impose itself upon people". This is exactly what happened here. People of fair conscience recognising the truth and divinity of quranic universal messages. Allaho Akbar
