This book provides the most detailed study to date on the subject of the dignity of man from the perspective of Islam. The Author sets out the proclamations on human dignity found in the Qur'an and then discusses topics pertaining to or resulting from human dignity: the physical and spiritual nobility of man: God's love for humanity; the sanctity of life; and the necessity for freedom, equality and accountability. Finally the author examines the measures that the Sharian has taken to protect human dignity and to promote it in social interaction.
