Overview for Islam and Social Ethics
Islam and social Ethics’ by S.M.A. Rauf is a valuable addition to the Islamic literature on “ethics”. Islam seeks comprehensive reform in all aspects of human life, hence it addresses the individual, the society and the state; which constitute the three focal points of human existence. Obviously “the individual” is the most fundamental of them. A healthy society is built when individuals are able to cultivate a healthy personality within themselves.
A society comprising such morally upright individuals is therefore a healthy society and its social fabric embodies the human values, which have always been intuitively recognized by human beings as universal values.
The process of healthy reform is complete, when the state (in addition to the individual and the society) also bases its conduct on the sound moral principles. We hope that in the Muslim world, people will strive towards creating better societies and better states; thus implementing the Islamic programme for reform of human life, in its totality. The present book will certainly help in creating the atmosphere conductive for such a comprehensive effort.
