Ethical Theories in Islam
By S. M. Hasan
Islam is one of the three number religious systems on Earth. But this is not the only reason why we need to speak about Islam. Islam expresses the ethics of the attitude of man to God in laconic and methodologically true form. Moreover, the attitude to God, which was taught by Jesus Christ was realized in Islam and not in the mass Christianity. Islam plays a significant role in satisfying physical as well as spiritual needs and teaches a code of behaviour and conservation of social vallues and gives a meaning for existence.
It helps in toleration and developing adaptive capacities for stressful events of life and a sense of self-respect and teaches us about the virtues of family life and cohesive society with a sense of brotherhood.Muslims believe that Muhammad, like other prophets in Islam, was sent by God to remind human beings of their moral responsibility, and challenge those ideas in society which opposed submission to God.
