Islamic Ethics

This series provides a Quran-inspired, traditionally-grounded, philosophically alert, and highly readable account of Islamic ethics or akhlaq. By systematically elaborating a paradigm of Prophetic Ethics, centered on the role model of the Prophet, upon him be peace, we examine various problems contemporary Muslims face at both the theoretical and meta-ethical level and break that down by exploring it’s connection to practical morals, manners, and virtues. Through our discussion of how Islamic ethics harmonized the requirements of law with the imperatives of love, the eternal truth of divine commands with the merciful sensitivity to human diversity and context, this series will empower the reader to think about, internalize, and reenact the teachings of that beautiful model, that "Mercy to all the worlds," in their own lives.
