Answer Aif you want to learn about ethics and morality of Islam I don't recommend that you read cropped verses unless you already know the context.

Islam is a complete system of ethics...starting with as simple as a smile that counts as charity all the way up to defending the oppressed.

Backbiting is a terrible vice in Qur'an. Murdering the peaceful is strictly prohibited in Qur'an. Women are equal to men in humanity but they have different responsibilities.

The ethical system of Islam covers everything: war, family, marriage, treating others, investments,...

Answer BYou can't sum up a whole religion in a word. However, the followings are on the top of my head:
  • Muslims respect every living thing (including plants). you get rewarded for treating animals and other creatures in a humane way and you get punished in the afterlife for not.
  • In Islam, all races are equal and no sex is better than the other. They are equal with different responsibilities but neither are oppressed or abused.
  • Muslims are ordered to respect other people's faith and believes regardless of what they are (even Atheism)
  • killing is the worst crime (He who kills one person is like killing all people) that's my translation for the prophet's words in Arabic. It doesn't matter if the victim is a Muslim or not, its the worst crime EVER. Which is why those who claim to be Muslims and kill are NOT and they will be punished in the afterlife for their crimes. Even in self-defense, killing should be the last resort.
  • Respect your parents and love them even if they treat you wrong. Also respect whoever is older than you, and treat who ever is younger with mercy and kindness.
  • Help others when ever you can. They don't have to be Muslims to get the reward. Even being nice is enough to be rewarded.
  • giving to the poor is a must. 2.5% of your assets that you owned for a whole year is given to the poor annually. Its doesn't have to be a charity, a poor relative or friend is good enough. What ever you give away throughout the year is a bonus desirable reward.
  • sponsoring orphans has the greatest reward ever! the prophet said that the person who does this will be with him in heaven (and he is in the highest levels of heaven).
  • Honesty, we believe that Allah is seeing everything we do. So lying, stealing, etc.. is not only a sin, its shameful to do it when Allah is watching! just embarrassing! We also believe that there is two angles that write down every good and bad thing we do, this book would be read on judgment day in front of all humanity! its a big embarrassment to read the sins so we try not to do them!

That's all I could think of right now, and excuse my English for any grammar or spelling mistakes, its not my first language.

Answer C: In addition to the above, one may add the following:The Islam morals are not so much different than that of many religions except in minor details. All revelation of heaven-sent religions (mainly, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) and other religions have one common objective (irrespective to faith or society issues as marriage, inheritance, etc). This common objective is to have the morals with which all mankind can live in love, peace, and harmony.

Some of the Islam morals are:

  • No Sex without marriage Prostitution are prohibited
  • Killing intentionally and with no legal authority is forbidden
  • Robbery, cheating, breaking promise, laying, and dis-modesty are prohibited
  • Intoxicants (as Alcohols and drugs) and gambling are prohibited.
  • Islam has made it obligatory on Muslims to cover their private parts, which everyone naturally feels a sense of shame at exposing, especially on beaches
  • Islam prohibits women to wear clothes which fail to cover fully body, including head and hair except face and hands, in front of other men who are not their spouse or direct family. the cloth should not be transparent, revealing what is underneath. It is likewise prohibited to wear tightly fitting clothes which delineate the parts of the body. Face and hands are allowed to remain uncovered.
  • forbidden to eat the flesh of dead animals and blood and the flesh of swine.
  • The following also are prohibited:
    • Treating the parents, especially when getting old, without tender and without enough respect and care.
    • Mistreating wives and children
    • Cruelty in treating animals
    • Cutting trees without justification and spoiling water of rivers and springs
    • terrifying innocents and civilians
    • hate against other cultures and/or religion

The above are some of the morals that came to my mind. Refer to the relevant question below for more information.
