The Qur'an and the Just Society / Ramon Harvey

Availability: 1 in stock
Hardcover
£69.99

What is justice? How can it be realised within society? These are universal concerns and are central to the primary scripture of Islam, the Qur an. Utilising a pioneering theological and hermeneutic framework adapted from both classical Muslim literature and contemporary academic studies of the Qur an, Ramon Harvey explores the underlying principles of its system of social justice. Dividing his book into four parts, he covers Qur anic Ethics, Political Justice (politics, peace, war), Distributive Justice (fair trade, alms, marriage, inheritance) and Corrective Justice (public and private crimes). His reading of the Qur an reconstructs the text as normatively engaging these spheres of justice in their socio-historical context and lays the foundations for future contemporary articulations of Qur anic ethics.
