Forbidding what is evil (Arabic: النهي عن المنكر Nahy ani l-Munkar), is a part of Islam and means, for example, to oppose injustice. In a more political and social context, Muslims are divided: Some believe that one should not take a social stance unless the Caliph orders.
It is derived from the Quranic command what is good and forbid what is wrong.
