‘O Dawud (David)! Verily! We have placed you a successor on the earth; so judge you between men in truth (and justice) and follow not your desire – for it will mislead you from the path of Allah. Verily, those who wander astray from the path of Allah shall have a severe torment, because they forgot the Day of Reckoning’ (Al-Sad 38: 26; p 611)
‘O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah as just witnesses; and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety; and fear Allah. Verily Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do’ (Al-Maidah 5:8. Pg 144).
