CALL FOR CHAPTERS
Islam and Applied Ethics
Editors: Rafik Beekun, Tariq Ramadan and Yasir Qadhi
Much has been published about Islam and ethics. Often, however, such
books or articles have focused on the abstract and philosophical rather
than the applied. Concurrently, a deep divide has occurred between what
Islam asks of its adherents and what many of them abide by and apply in
terms of ethics. For example, Muslims represents 23% of the world
population (Pew Research Center, 2013), but only one Muslim-majority
country ranks among the top 25 most ethical countries in the world, and 5
out of the ten most corrupt countries in the world are in fact
Muslim-majority countries (Transparency International Corruption
Perceptions Index, 2015). As a result of the above gaps in the application
of Islamic ethics, several prominent Muslim thinkers (e.g. Taha Jabir Al
Alwani, Tariq Ramadan) have been advocating for a fresh reading of the
earliest and most important Islamic sources including both the Qur’an and
the Seerah of the Prophet (s). That re-reading should also contextualize
some of the verses in the Qur’an itself as well as the teachings and
sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, and should occur in parallel with a
“reading” of the world around us.
The aim of this book, then, is to synthesize and advance both theoretical
and empirical research about applied Islamic ethics within various
disciplines such as business (e.g. economics, finance, marketing,
accounting, and human resource development), the sciences (physical,
social, life, etc.), media, the law, politics, and environmental ecology.
In their emphasis on “wasatiyya” or balance, the key primary sources of
Islamic teachings, the Qur’an and the Sunnah weave core ethical principles
such as ‘adl (balance), qist (justice), amana (trust) and ihsan
(benevolence) within Islamic ethics. This book will therefore provide a
broad base for theory development while emphasizing practical approaches
towards key fields of knowledge within the context of Islamic ethics.
Ideally, chapters should focus on how Islamic ethics relates to key
contemporary issues facing Muslims in areas listed below. The following
list provides possible areas to be covered from an applied perspective.
This is a suggestive, not a final list. We welcome alternate suggestions
and chapter topics that fit within the primary theme of this book.
• Islamic ethics in the workplace
