Divine Law/Divine Command: The Ground of Ethics in the Western Tradition -- Muslim Perspectives

Studies in Christian Ethics 23 (1):35-41 (2010)
Abstract
The article examines the ideas of divine command and divine law in their Quranic and Muslim legal contexts. It suggests a strong connection between western and Muslim values based on linkages developed in medieval times through Latin appropriation of Arabic studies of Classical philosophy. It also traces the need to address common, contemporary concerns such as poverty, through a shared ethical stance
