Protection, Honor, Media, Relations


No society allows an individual to dishonor a fellow human being, thus it is important in itself to think rightly about the "concept of honor" that what actually HONOR is. ‘Islam' has prearranged the particular guiding principles and valuable strategies about this genuine and earnest matter that ought to concern every individual prudently. The research focuses on the correct understanding of Islamic teachings in the process of preserving/protecting human personal honor and dignity. Islam teaches us that if people are being dishonored we should defend their honor. Human honor and dignity is reexamined in this research from two major perspectives. Human honor and dignity in media and in societal relations. Both aspects are elaborated extensively and the conclusions are drawn to show that honor and dignity is for all humans whether big or small, good or bad, rich or poor, literate or illiterate, our dear ones or strangers. Islam does not permit one’s honor to be abused. Everyone is equally honorable and above from all other creations on earth.
