An Analytical Study on the Islamic Perspectives of Morality
Dr. Ali Hussain Arif
The morality is beyond the religions, and there are people and nations that do not believe in any religions but have moral and ethical values. Islam as a Divine religion gives a considerable importance to morality, and it inspires the followers to be morally and ethically sound persons in their individual and social life. There are more than hundred moral values that have been discussed in different books of traditions as far as in the holy Quran. The aims of the current article are to explore the core moral values and to describe the Islamic perspectives of morality. Islam views a child should be trained at the beginning of his or her life, so he may become a morally strong person as he or she grows up. Islam teaches peace, love, brotherhood, respect, tolerance, conviction, clemency, forgiveness, responsibility, honesty, truthfulness, humbleness, cooperation, religious harmony, cheerfulness, empathy, sympathy, generosity, charity, worship, obedience, unity, faith, prayers, good manners, cleanliness, patience, courage, struggle, sincerity, repentance,reconciliation, leniency, righteousness, hope, freedom, good character, conciseness, trustworthiness, loyalty, modesty, compassion, thankfulness, hospitality, infallibility, justice, self-sacrifice , service, equity, and kindness. Islam gives no importance to valueless education as it affects negatively on child’s development. Without morality education is like a body without soul.
