Abstract
Human Rights and Islam is a subject which has been of great interest in many circles. The debate on whether Islam and the UN definition on Human Rights are compatible has raised many voices and concerns, the debate has mainly focused on the unsuitability of Sharia and it’s undermining of minorities. The purpose of this essay is to look at the relationship between Islam and Human Rights, mainly through three alternative Islamic Human Rights declarations. This essay will also illustrate the religious debate of Human Rights in Islam, the creating, status and possible difficulties of the alternative declarations and present attitudes of various organizations, scholars and experts on the subject.
