In man's civilized history, religion is a universal cultural phenomenon. While as a special ethical form religious ethics played a crucial role in the respect that molded traditional virtue and inward disposition of nations.
There is not ethic in modern sense about Islamic tradition. But as one of the world ethical monotheisms, Islamic cultural tradition and its social life are full of ethical thoughts and moral requirements.
Therefore,the fundamental question of religious ethics is to investigate the relationship between the ethical order of human existence and its foundation of belief. Specifically speaking,on the one hand it deals with the relationship between the moral order of individual person and the foundation of belief,and on the other hand,it deals with the relationship between social ethical order and the agreement of value.
