Abstract

Appreciating this beauty and the quest for excellence is what ihsan (beneficence and goodness) is all about. But to place this discussion in its proper context, let’s deal with another fundamental, related aspect: justice (‘adl) or equity (qist), which can be regarded as a benchmark value and parameter for Muslims (what is demanded), while ihsan is the ideal, which is cherished.

Keywords: Justice, Ihsan, Beauty, Excellence
