Taking law in one’s on hands

Can Citizens Take Law Into Their Own Hands When the Authorities Don’t Do Their Job?

Can Citizens Take Law Into Their Own Hands When the Authorities Don’t Do Their Job?

This question has come up from a host of recent events, including the attention-grabbing attack on a brothel by female madrassa students in Islamabad.

Mufti Rafi Usmani talked about this in his Friday prayer sermon, lamenting that this is a manifestation of the tribulations (fitan) that we are accosted with in our times. We are seeing that common people are fed up of the inaction, irresponsibility, ineptitude, and corruption of government and law-enforcement agencies; and they are taking matters into their own hands.

This idea of taking the law into one’s own hands could lead to anarchy. Which is a state none would enjoy livng in. This is my two cents worth. Which is not connected to the above article written by one of the true men of Allah Shaykh Faraz Rabbani (May Allah preserve him and may we benefit from him)
