Harvard University quoted the Quran, the last revelation as believed by the Muslims, and its divine words. The quotation is on display at the entrance of the library for the faculty.
Allah (SWT) chose the Holy Book as His last and final scripture. Undoubtedly, it came from the Creator of this Universe and guides us to walk the right path.
Justice and the law are of utmost importance in Islam and the Holy Quran – the book that is full of the required laws for human beings. Islam does not offer any space for injustice.
Harvard Law School, one of the most prominent law schools in the world, has displayed an ayah from Surah Nisa at the entrance of the Library for the faculty. It says that the Quran is among the greatest expression of justice in history. Harvard Law School is home to the biggest academic library in the world.
Ayah number 135 from Surah/Chapter Nisa (woman) directs human beings to act justly and follow laws. It is one of three significant quotations displayed on the wall facing the main entrance for the faculty. The other two belong to St Augustine and Magna Carta.
The quotations were suggested by the faculties themselves as well as the students of Harvard Law School and from more than 100 entries, this particular Qur’anic verse was chosen.
