Abstract

ABSTRACT: Right to Life is considered as one of the primordial Human Rights. The importance of right to life can be judged simply on this basis that there are diversified views ofthe leaders of the world regarding almost every issue about human Rights concern. However, they agree in principle that the individuals (lives) irrespective of their race, color, language and nationality, should be saved andprotected and they should be honored and respected. Even a cursory glance at the contents of the Islamic ideology indicates that the Qura'n and the Sunna'h have dealt in depth with nearly every aspect of human rights and in particular the right to life. The present study investigates different aspects and dimensions of ‘Right to life’ in the light of Islam, along with its comparison with law and western approaches to it.
