Be just

Justice in Islam 
In Islam, we should always stand for justice as a matter of principle, whether for Muslims or non-Muslims, even if justice should side against us.Allah said:يَاأَيُّهَاالَّذِينَآمَنُواكُونُواقَوَّامِينَبِالْقِسْطِشُهَدَاءَلِلَّهِوَلَوْعَلَىٰأَنفُسِكُمْأَوِالْوَالِدَيْنِوَالْأَقْرَبِينَإِنيَكُنْغَنِيًّاأَوْفَقِيرًافَاللَّهُأَوْلَىٰبِهِمَافَلَاتَتَّبِعُواالْهَوَىٰأَنتَعْدِلُواوَإِنتَلْوُواأَوْتُعْرِضُوافَإِنَّاللَّهَكَانَبِمَاتَعْمَلُونَخَبِيرًاO you who believe, be persistently standing firm in justice as witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives.
