عنوان مقاله [English]
There are two general viewpoints concerning the relation between religion and morality. Some consider morality as independent and separate from religion and some view it as originated from Divine command and dependent on it. The second viewpoint, which is interpreted as Divine command, has advocates among the Islamic and Western theologians. To prove their viewpoints, they have brought up various reasons. Advocates of the first viewpoint, who also believe in the inherent good and evil, have criticized these reasons. The non-evilness of duty beyond the power (taklīf-i mā lāyatāq) and God’s absolute ownership are among the most important reasons of the advocates of the second viewpoint, which is critically reviewed in this article.
