Yes, absolutely. The principal of individual rights was established in one of Islam’s earliest documents, the Medina Constitution, which was drafted by the Prophet Muhammad when he migrated with his followers to Medina. The agreement laid out certain rights and responsibilities between the Muslims and the major tribes in Medina, and guaranteed the security and religious freedom of the diverse religious and tribal groups who made up the new community. Many of the rights enumerated in modern day documents such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights or even the U.S. Constitution reflect core Islamic principles. For example, the Qur’anic verse “there is no compulsion in religion” (2:256) is the Islamic equivalent of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. An important focus of Islam is social justice. Many contemporary Muslim thinkers advance an understanding of social justice that includes individual rights and equality, including gender parity.
