Abstract Aaron Hughes’ critique of certain trends in Islamic Studies raises some important questions. The force of the critique rests on limiting the sample of material, however. I suggest we broaden the selection of scholarly work to include studies focused on questions of ethics, understood as the study of normative discourse. A number of articles published in the Journal of Religious Ethics provide an illustration of an alternative approach to the study of Islam, and suggest a more hopeful picture than the one provided by Hughes.
