Law. Edict. Fatwa. Islam is often associated with a set of rigid rules which must be followed or else. Of course, every faith lays down a code of conduct and a way of living, but what are rules without principles? What are laws without ethics? What is the letter without the spirit?
Shaykh Walead Mosaad answers categorically: soulless. The legacy of the Prophet is ethics – his enduring legacy and a framework for positive living. Shaykh Walead’s call to unite with all people on the basis of shared ethics and common values is a compelling call to action and timely reminder of what faith is all about.
