 Arabic philosophical ethics: The first English translation and commentary of al- Ghazali’s ethical treatise

 

In the Department of Foreign Languages more specifically Arabic, Yasien Mohamed is doing internationally acknowledged research related to ethics and philosophy in Islam. He has received the Imam Bukhari and Imam Tirmizi Visiting Research Fellowship 2010-2011 from the Oxford Centre of Islamic Studies, affiliated to Oxford University. He is working on a project entiled “The Ethical Philosophy of Imam al-Ghazali: An Annotated Translation, with Critical Introduction, of al-Ghazali’s Mizan al-”Amal (The Scale of Action)”. The main question in this project is whether al-Ghazali’s ethics is an example of Islamic humanistic ethics, or whether it is simply another form of religious ethics. Ebrahim Dawood, a postgraduate student in the department, is working on another text related to al-Ghazzali’s ethics.
