Abstract

Al-Qiyqmia is an Arabic term that means values. The term: Qiyam is
a plural of Qimah which means value. It addresses every aspect of a
Muslim’s life, from greetings to international relations. It is universal
in its scope and in its applicability. The distinction of human beings
over other creatures is that human behaviour is controlled or limited
by certain ethical values (qiyam) which purify their soul. These
qiyam are reliable benchmarks to measure the individual’s and
societies’ behaviour, especially those who are enjoying Islamic
ethics. Thus, the authorities running educational institutions and
training centers are bound to teach the Islamic Qiyam to motivate
tolerance, justice and equity among Muslims. The objective of this
paper is to explore the role of Islamic qiyam in protecting human
behaviour, its implications on the consolidation of unity among
Muslim societies with diverse cultures and the participation of
educational institutions in instilling these qiyam among individuals,
which eventually leads to the development of Muslim nations;
educationally, culturally, scientifically, economically and politically,
etc. The paper is based on a descriptive and analytical method, since
it describes the qiyam suggested by the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah
and to analyse the prevailing ethical problems among Muslims and
how it could be resolved. The paper is intended to identify the most
important values (qiyam) to be taught by various educational or
training institutions in Islamic countries to serve as a comprehensive
unifying framework for the Muslim ummah.
