Open Lecture- Qurʾānic Narratives as Applied Ethics

Come along and experience the finale of the Open Lecture Series for the 2018/2019 academic year as Dr Tareq Moqbel from the University of Westminster gives a lecture on Qur’ānic Narratives as Applied Ethics.

About the lecture

This lecture explores how Qurʾānic narratives (qaṣaṣ) function as tools for exemplifying how moral principles are tested and operationalised in practical situations. It addresses Qurʾānic narratives as occasions for observing how the abstract moral principles are put into practice, with all the accompanying difficulties, struggles, and possible moral dilemmas. The aim of the lecture, therefore, is to bring to the fore those instances within Qurʾānic narratives that allow for such moral reflection, and to present those narratives as practical ethics.
