Many scholars, Muslim and Western, struggle to understand the concept of human rights in Islam and its status in contemporary Islamic societies. There is much debate because often the discussion of universal human rights does not address the subject of religion at all. Furthermore, the language of universal human rights, as presented in Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), is not explicit in Islams primary and secondary sources, including the Quran and Hadith. The Rights of God: Islam, Human Rights, and Comparative Ethics attempts to address this sensitive and largely unexplored relationship between Islam and human rights, by further focusing on, what the author calls, comparative religious ethics, which seeks to understand ethical values across religions and cultures. To demonstrate diversity of opinions on this issue, Irene Oh studies and compares the religious ethics of Abul Ala Maududi, Sayyid Qutb, and Abdolkarim Soroush. This text opens the door for further research to investigate into the issue, and uncovers that universal ideas of human rights have found their way into Islamic thought.
