Islam on human rights:

Mawdudi is awesome mA.

This site includes many verses from the Qur'an regarding human rights and I've pasted some of the commentary I really like too:

Whosoever kills a human being without (any reason like) man slaughter, or corruption on earth, it is as though he had killed all mankind ... (5:32)

"And whoever saves a life it is as though he had saved the lives of all mankind" (5:32).

The Holy Quran has laid down: "Do not let your hatred of a people incite you to aggression" (5:2). "And do not let ill-will towards any folk incite you so that you swerve from dealing justly. Be just; that is nearest to heedfulness" (5:8). Stressing this point the Quran again says: "You who believe stand steadfast before God as witness for (truth and) fairplay" (4:135)

"And we set you up as nations and tribes so that you may be able to recognize each other" (49:13).

"When- ever you judge between people, you should judge with (a sense of) justice" (4:58).

Do not let your hatred of a people incite you to aggression" (5:2). "And do not let ill-will towards any folk incite you so that you swerve from dealing justly. Be just; that is nearest to heedfulness" (5:8). Stressing this point the Quran again says: "You who believe stand steadfast before God as witness for (truth and) fairplay" (4:135). This makes the point clear that Muslims have to be just not only with ordinary human beings but even with their enemies.
