Event description

Description

What is justice? How can it be realised within society? These are universal concerns and are central to the primary scripture of Islam, the Qur’an. Utilising a pioneering theological and hermeneutic framework adapted from both classical Muslim literature and contemporary academic studies of the Qur’an, Ramon Harvey explores the underlying principals of its system of social justice.


Hosted by:

Professor M. A. S. Abdel Haleem (King Fahd Professor of Islamic Studies, SOAS)
