Islam Ethics

Last week, we had a lecture on Islam Ethics which has been presented by Ms. Siti and Mr. Hamid. During the lecture, there were some historical overview, changes and the background (Aqidah, Shari’ah and Akhlaq).

What is Jahilliya?

Islam begin with the pre-Islamic culture which is known as ‘Jahilliya’ or ignorance of Islam. There are a lot of conflicts and unethical issues during this period especially between two ethnics which is Badawi and Hadari. During Jahilliya period, they did so many things which against Islam, such as gambling, alcoholic, riba’, unethical behaviour and kill their daughters as well. They did not have any particular practices, they generally beliefs in sun, trees, fire, animals and statues.

When Islam come, they slowly change from some very common practices like riba’ and gambling to more moral virtues and finally Islam introduce with the monotheistic faith and five main pillars of Islam, which are ‘Syahadah’, daily prayer, fasting, Zakat and perform Haj. This five pillars brings a lot of changes from ‘Jahilliya’ to Islam.

In Islam, all of the Muslims has been thought in doing a good deeds and being in a good manner since they were born. Akhlaq or known as Islam ethics is most important part which has been thought in our daily life. Akhlaq is all about morality and ethics. I believe in every religion the morality and good ethics are encourage to all of the practitioners. In Islam, akhlaq can be classify into two meanings which is ethics and science that deals with the standard of right and wrong of human and what human ought to do. Another meaning is good character and good human behaviour.

Ethics in Islam, has encourage their practitioners to be responsibilities, justice,kindness, self-discipline, generosity, culture of forgiving, safeguard ethics in (mixing between man and women), charity, pray on time.
