Forbidding Wrong in Islam: An Introduction Reviews

  • Zachary Moore

    A quick and readable work on one aspect of Islamic ethical theory. I didn't recognize until after purchasing the book that it was an scaled down version of a larger work and I get the feeling that the original work may have given more elaboration on various themes covered in the book as well as including a more helpful bibliography.
