Dr Tariq Ramadan Addresses Islam’s Ethical and Legal Disparities

The growing gap between Islamic ethics and jurisprudence (Fiqh) needs to be erased if current ethical and cultural separations facing Muslim communities are to be bridged said Dr Tariq Ramadan, Executive Director of the Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE) recently.

Qatar’s French-speaking community heard from Dr Ramadan during CILE’s latest public lecture, delivered in French and entitled “Fiqh and Ethics, Which Objectives?” in Doha earlier this month.
Also a Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford University, Dr Ramadan’s lecture addressed disparities between ethics and jurisprudence through the use of contemporary examples, highlighting historical reasons that have led to the dichotomy.

He also called upon the audience to engage with CILE, member of Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies (QFIS), by co-shouldering the responsibility of conveying its message to the community through the attendance of its events.
The lecture was attended by a large number of Qatar’s French-speaking community and succeeded in igniting discussions about the ethical and jurisprudential issues facing contemporary Islam. It is the most recent public seminar in a series of talks organized by the CILE in different disciplines including economics, politics, arts, media, environment, bioethics, psychology, methodology, and gender studies.

Through such events the centre seeks to join leading Islamic experts and scholars to deepen the discussions on contemporary issues facing today’s Muslim community by putting forth ethical approaches and solutions.
