– Should human dignity be a bedrock principle in Muslim jurisprudential (fiqhi) and ethical (akhlaqi) discourses?
– Are attempts to conceive of human dignity from the Qur’an & Sunnah anachronistic and/or a Eurocentric reflection of the philosophical justifications used in Western scholarship?
– What would a conception of Islamic human dignity look like and how could it be applied to current socio-political issues?
