US Supreme Court Calls Prophet Muhammad ﷺ as Greatest Law Giver of the World

The US Supreme court rightly said that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ the true and last messenger of Almighty God is one of the best lawgivers of all time.

On the contrary, the Highest court or (Supreme court) of U.S recognized Prophet Muhammad as the true Iconic figure in the field of Law and Justice, even the companions of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ are recognized as truly loyal and trustworthy people in the history of mankind.

This article intends to briefly look at the ideas of peace and justice in Islam and explore their deeper significance. It will discuss and highlight the different aspects of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ life and deeds in respect to the peace and law.

The messages of the Prophet which would be viewed and analyzed have multipurpose implications both for the Muslim world and the Western world. World peace needs a proper code of conduct and role model.

The teachings of the Prophet provide the desired code of conduct (i.e. the law) and the life of the Prophet is the reference point, the role model.

His speeches demonstrated that he sought to see all humankind from the lens of kindness, modesty, moderation, justice, liberty, gentility, generosity and love.

The basic teachings of the Quran and the Prophet (SAW) are not inconsistent with modern charters of United Nations. The paper also makes appropriate suggestions for the world social order. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ spent his entire life with Peace, Justice, Islam, Tolerance, Equality.

The U.S Highest law court paid respect and significance to the teachings and traditions of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in the field of law and Justice, all the people of Arabia knows very well that only Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was a just ruler and the justice provider in the entire peninsula.

Although this news is not new an old one, the US Supreme court honored beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, as one of the best lawgivers of the world in 1935.

The second frieze in the US court to the right features a copy of the Holy Quran, the Islamic Book of Muslims, It is intended to recognize Prophet Muhammad as one of the best lawgivers of all time, along with other Prophet in a list of 18 total personalities including Prophet Sulaiman, Moses and etc.

Here is what the Supreme Court’s website says about this frieze:

Muhammad (c. 570 – 632) The Prophet of Islam. He is depicted holding the Qur’an. The Qur’an provides the primary source of Islamic Law. Prophet Muhammad’s teachings explain and implement Qur’anic principles.

The figure above is a well-intentioned attempt by the sculptor, Adolph Weinman, to honor Muhammad, and it bears no resemblance to Muhammad. Muslims generally have a strong aversion to sculptured or pictured representations of their Prophet.

When mankind lacks guidance on how to live their lives, the entire structure of society is damaged. Allah ﷻ has sent down the Quran as guidance for all of mankind, with all the rules and regulations we need to stay on the right track. Islam is a very complete way of life. Every rule that is good for humanity has been ordained in the Shariah of Allah (swt).

Everything we need, in order to live successfully, can be found in the Quran. Amongst these very important divinely instructed laws is the law of establishing justice.

Islam the very name of which means “peace” submission to the will of Allah and ladder on which man can always keep rising  morally and  spiritually is at all related to tolerance.

The Qur’an attaches great value to peace. Peace at the expense of justice is not acceptable to the Qur’an. These two issues   peace and justice are not only correlated but complementary to each other.

Allah says in the Qur’an:

“Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and liberality to kith and kin, and He forbids all shameful deeds, and injustice  and rebellion: He instructs you that you may receive admonition.” (Al Quran; 15:90)

Establishing justice is the law of Allah ﷻ. It is part of the balance which Allah has created as justice lead to the peace in the society. The essence of justice is the recognition that all humans are equal and it means creating harmony.

Once we accept the principle of human equality then we need to reject all racism, nationalism, and ethnocentrism. This is something some people find difficult to accept; but that is the one remedy leading us towards justice and peace
