Judge with justice; the story of To’mah and a Jewish man

On one occasion, an Arab man called To’mah Bin Ubayriq stole a metal shield which was part of a suit of armour and hid it in the house of his Jewish friend. The Jewish person was accused of stealing the metal shield but he denied the charge and accused To’mah.

As the offender was not known yet, many Arab Muslims sympathized with To’mah and tried to influence Muhammad’s opinion to turn the case against the Jewish man but Islamic justice prevailed. To’mah was proved guilty and the Jewish man was proved to be innocent. In this context, a verse was revealed in the Quran asserting justice:

Human Rights Human Rights LAWJUSTICE (Sahih Al-Bukhari, 6/27, 5185. Muslim, 4/178, 1468) (Al-Hakim, 4/385, 8256. Tirmithi, 5/128, 3036

“Surely We have sent down to you the Book with truth so >span >shown you (taught you justice). So don’t be a pleader on behalf of those who betray their trust.”

The Quran, 4:105
