    Ch. Sahib, ethics and morals are all about what society think good and bad is. On the other hand, Quran gives u a complete code of conduct. The morals and ethics will change from time to time but not the rules given by Allah. For example, homosexuality was a taboo in 50's and wasn't considered a good thing to talk about but now the "norm" or ethics and morals tell you to respect what other think. I hope I was able to distinguish the two.

    Yes, these words are normally interchanged but have different meanings altogether. Important thing is I don't believe in morals and ethics as they are man made and changable with time as and when suited to the people. We need something more concrete than just morals and ethics to run the society.

    Ethics versus Morals

    SO!what distinguishes morals from ethics and the adjective moral from the adjective ethical.
    Ethics names the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation. Morals is reserved for moral practices or teachings, or as a term for modes of conduct. Moral principles often have religious justification, and the religious and the moral have often been conflated.

    Although moral and ethical are often used interchangeably to mean "conforming to a standard of what is right and good," the adjectives do have individual nuances. Moral implies conformity to established sanctioned codes or to accepted notions of right and wrong; that's the word we use when we talk about the "basic moral values of a community." Ethical, on the other hand, may suggest the involvement of more difficult or subtle questions of rightness, fairness, or equity. That's the term we use to talk about "commitment to the highest ethical principles."

    Whichever term you embrace, you might take to heart this observation attributed to both Adlai Stevenson and Alfred Adler: "It is easier to fight for one's principles than it is to live up to them."

    so ..am i right?
