Divine Justice is the special prerogative of theology, but Murtada Mutahhari is exceptional. In this book he chooses to approach the subject from an altogether different perspective. He uses philosophical methods to solve the problems and questions that surround the issue of Divine Justice - such questions as have beset humankind from time immemorial. The success of his efforts are seen in the fact that his book has become a classic of contemporary Islamic literature.
Divine Justice is the ideological and intellectual master piece of great contemporary scholar Martyr Murtaza Mutahhari. In this book, Mutahhari has explained in depth very delicate and sensitive topic of Divine Justice from various aspects. Today’s curious young and intellectual minds seek answers to many questions and dilemma as to what is the purpose of creation? Why has God created devil or Satan to lure human beings towards sin? Why God allows the wicked and cruel to become powerful and oppress weak and downtrodden? Why calamities and hardships befall innocent human beings? Why downfall of nations occurs? Why natural disasters happen that apparently harm those who have done no sin, crime or injustice? How the intercession of people from different religion will take place? Are all those who claim to be Muslims and do sinful actions going to be forgiven? What will be the divine judgment about those human beings who have done good actions but do not believe in God? Will they go to Hell? In Divine Justice, Martyr Mutahhari answers these important and perplexing questions.
