"Justice – I have to assume that you mean that individuals should treat their neighbors in a fair and just manner".

Yes this is one of the finest ways to do justice.

"Would not this ‘fair and just treatment' be epitomized in the Sharia laws that are supposed to be based on the quran, the sira, the sunna and the best intentions of your all merciful allah".

Already epitomized in Quran, no need to redo.

"I sorry, but what I have been able to surmise of the Sharia laws is that they are a horrendous burden on islamic society and are prejudiced against women and the practice of other religions in islamic countries – what is so ‘fair and just' about the Sharia laws?"

Dear Oliver, I know what are you saying and it is not the Sharia laws but the people who are not using it will its true spirit.

"Justice certainly will be meted out on the last day – as your merciful allah so frequently reminds you in your nobel quran".

Yes this is the message.

I prefer to bask in the forgiveness and loving kindness of the grace of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, there is no judgement 'in Christ' only the sweet anticipation of eternal life.

Does this means there will be no judgment day? Because what I believe that if you repent before death, then know Allah is all Forgiving and Mercy.
