Religious, legal, and moral norms, which are an integral part of culture, have always existed. Islam has approached the rights, ethical norms of all living beings from different angles and paid special attention to these issues. According to Islam, rights are given to a person from the moment of his creation, not later. Normative rights, which covering human life, are also united with moral norms. Because there are moral norms at the root of any rule, and if there are no such norms, there can be no legal norm. That is why, when Islam speaks of human rights, it emphasizes morality, especially the principles of justice, and creates a link between law and justice. From the Islamic point of view, law and morality, justice; one of the main features of morality, are the main factors in the formation of a person as a social figure. Because law, morality and justice cover the issues that are necessary in the life of every person, which today we call it as Human Rights. The article focuses on the legal and moral norms of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, their proportions, social impact, and prestige, as well as the principles of human rights law and justice, other issues related to law and morality, and the differences between them. Research and analysis of some legal and philosophical aspects have been carried out here, referring to the authentic and authoritative works of both Islamic lawyers (faqih) and philosophers, as well as Western lawyer-philosophers (legal philosophers).
