With its stimulating collection of traditions from the main figures of Islam, Great Traditions in Islamic Ethics takes the reader beyond the morality of Islam to the profound nature of Islamic Mystical inquiry. This excellent resource helps scholars, students and interests in Islamic Morality develop their knowledge and understanding needed to examine and scrutinize traditions in Islamic ethics. This book (hopefully the first volume of consecutive volumes) has an introduction and eight chapters. The first chapter contains selected verses from the Holy Quran which concern certain moral problems and ethical characteristics. The second chapter contains a collection of Prophetic traditions presenting moral behaviors and ethical guidelines. The next six chapters present selected sermons, sayings, wise maxims of the Imams, the successors of the Holy Prophet of Islam, concerning moral problems and ethical teachings.
