Morality in the Quran: The Greater Good of Humanity


Sale price$26.90


Through a thematic interpretation of the Quran, the author proposes the following five critical elements to morality:

  • obligation
  • responsibility
  • sanction
  • intent and
  • effort

Each element plays an indispensable role in the conscience of a believer.

The author postulates that every human possesses a light that enables them to determine good and evil on a fundamental level propelling them towards duty, kindness and charity. It is then asserted that the believer possesses a double light – a deep knowledge that incorporates divine law into our very essence.
