The Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE) was created in 2012 as a center specializing in Islamic legislation and ethical thought with a focus on applied ethics. With a vision of reform and renewal guided by the fundamental principles of the Holy Qur’an, Sunna and the higher objectives of Islam, we aim to provide a methodological and theoretical framework that contributes to practical applications which transform reality to bring about a more just and ethical world.

By bringing scholars of text and scholars of context together to discuss on the critical issues of the day, we aim to serve diverse global audiences of experts, activists, practitioners, students, and ordinary people who share our concerns and interests.

CILE is based in the Faculty of Islamic Studies in Doha, Qatar.
