Abstract

Effective system of accountability plays a vital role in ensuring the rule of law and eradication of corruption in every society. The non-compliance of accountability results in manifold issues which hinders the growth of society in all spheres. The instances of such issues are obvious in our society which can only be resolved with the help of an effective and comprehensive system of accountability. The accountability system set up by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) encompasses all social, economic, moral, religious and worldly matters. Through this system he rectified everything that could possibly lead to any mishap and disturbance in the society. It is the man himself who is responsible for making or marring a society. That is why Islamic law emphasized a lot on moral and social values, social harmony, and discouraged immoral and dishonourable acts. The present article discusses the role of Accountability in reformation of the society from Islamic perspective.
