Social Justice...

Dear Friends
Commentators are correct when they argue that the raison d'être of Islam is social justice. Let's see what Rumi has to say on this:
What is justice? Giving water to trees.
What is injustice? To give water to thorns.
Justice consists in bestowing bounty in its proper place,
not on every root that will absorb water. -- Mathnawi [V, 1089-1090]
