Ethics of Advancement: Understanding Islamic Economics – Shaykh Faraz at UTM’s IAW

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani explains the ethics and values underlying Islamic economics–going beyond the “minimums” that are the concern of much of “Islamic finance” to the higher purpose and transformative good that underlies Qur’anic teachings and Prophetic guidance related to matters of money and financial activity.

Topics of discussion included the ethics of interaction, self-reform, and mindfulness of others.
