Description

The moral authority of Islam derives from the Qur'an. M.A. Draz's book analyses the ethical theory that underpins Qur'anic legislation by providing a classification of the specific verses in which Islam's holy book discusses moral issues. This book will, therefore, be of interest to those working in medical ethics, family and moral counselling and other areas where practical ethical issues are raised. The principal purpose of this book is to demonstrate the ways in which the Qur'an provides, on both a theoretical and practical level, the moral code to which Muslims around the world adhere.
