There’s No Justice without Islamic Knowledge

Imām Ibn Taimiyyah, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

Justice must be preceded by [Islamic] knowledge since one who doesn’t have [Islamic] knowledge cannot get to know what justice is; Man is [ever] an ignorant wrongdoer except one whom Allāh guides to and accepts repentance from, [one who] then becomes knowledgeable [of Islam] and just.
