This subject explores Islam in everyday human interactions. It introduces the two concepts; akhlaq (morality) and adab (manners) from an Islamic perspective and the importance of their application in developing human virtue and perfection. The subject commences with akhlaq and adab in the everyday life of a Muslim, followed by immediate family, and then other common relationships such as neighbours, work colleagues and friends. Ones relationship with the environment, animals and worship will also be covered. An important part of this subject is to study the traditional understanding of akhlaq and adab through the lens of the Quran, Hadith and the traditional scholars. The traditional understanding of each relationship type will then be analysed, considering the benefits and the challenges of their application in the contemporary context.
