“What Islam Looks Like in Public”: Islamic Ethics and Social Justice

Event Recording | Click here

Dr Cornel West famously said that “justice is what love looks like in public.” Inspired by this quote, this series will consider what Islam might look like in public. What are the implications of Islamic spiritual and ethical principles for contemporary struggles of gender, racial, economic, animal, ecological, and decolonial justice?

The series will begin with a keynote from eminent scholar Dr Khaled Abou el Fadl, one of the world’s leading authorities on Shari’ah, Islamic law and Islam, and a prominent scholar in the field of human rights. He is the Omar and Azmeralda Alfi Distinguished Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law. Dr. Abou El Fadl is most noted for his scholarly approach to Islam from a moral point of view. He writes extensively on universal themes of humanity, morality, human rights, justice, and mercy, and is well known for his writings on beauty as a core moral value of Islam.
