Islamic Ethics

At Horizon, ethics play a vital role in our faith-based educational model.  We believe Ethics is not only about individual characters and basic morality but it is also about extracting the key comprehensive meanings of the virtue (good, truth, right vs wrong, and responsibility).  It is also about how virtues help guide our youth to live a moral and ethical life.

We challenge our students to answer a few ethical questions, see a few here:

  1. How do you understand/interpret Islamic texts?

    • ⇒ Extract ethical values specific to the Islamic teaching based on with scholarly understanding from a fresh perspective

  2. How do you apply Islamic texts in varied contexts? How do you contextualize the work of Islamic scholars?

    • ⇒ Extract ethical values related to the common human being values and experiences

  3. How do you reconcile the intent of the ethical values and make ethical choices to resolve the conflicts?

    • ⇒ Build ethical action for the betterment of the self, society and the world

 

Horizon's ethical framework can be summarized in the following figure:
