Justice of RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam
Hazrat Rabee� bin Hasheem RadiyAllahu Anhu narrates, �Even before RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam declared his Prophet-hood, the people of Makkah called him as �the just� and �the trustworthy�. They always made him the judge in their affairs and would always agree with him and acknowledge his judgements. [Shifa Sharif]
A woman from the Quraish tribe and belonging to the Bani Makhzum family committed theft. The penalty for theft in Islam is the amputation of the right arm (with certain conditions). This became a major cause for concern for the Quraish as this would bring humiliation and disrepute to their tribe. Thus they decided to approach the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam to persuade him to change his decision. They pressurised Hazrat Osama bin Zaid RadiyAllahu Anhuma, who was held in high esteem by the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam to act as a mediator. When Hazrat Osama presented his plea in the court RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, the Prophet�s blessed face turned red with anger and he furiously remarked, �O Osama! Are you trying to negotiate with me in the matter of punishment decreed by Allah Almighty?� [Bukhari Sharif, Vol 2 page 300]
This is just one of the golden incidents of justice which are reflected from the life of the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
