Theoretical Framework of the Meaning of Akhlāq in the Qur’ān and Sunnah الإطار النظري لمفهوم الأخلاق في القرآن والسنة النبوية
Abstract: These days it has become very common that people are being influenced by western concept of ethics. They presumably, believe that west is superior and more advanced in the matters of ethics, civilization and other scientific and technological areas. And others are in retardation, more so especially Muslims. So, we have decided to bring forth the fact that Islam is the main source of ethics. We have presented theoretical framework of ethics through contemplation on Quran and Sunnah. We demonstrated ethical teachings of Islam such as truth, justice, patience, good behavior with parents, mutual cooperation, and manhood, all aiming to achieve happiness and success in this world and hereafter. The ethically mannered way of life saves from all kinds of evils and mishaps. If there is a set of ethics in practice there will be peace, happiness and blessings at both level; individual and collective, and consequently mutual trust and respect will grow and cherish. On the contrary, if there is no ethics and morality there will spread all kinds of evils and causalities. There will be enmity and hatred with other. Thus, code of ethics are mandatory to regulate and control behaviors to avoid conflicts and misconducts.
