Where Does Morality Come From

“Thou shall not steal.”

Where does this moral come from? From religion or they are a priori human intuition?

Richard Dawkin is a critic of religion. He thinks that morality is a priori human judgment, therefore religion cannot be a basis of offering morality. Because in doing so religion will itself depend upon such prior intuition. If the argument is correct then any attempt to found morality on religion is a circular argument.

Islam is not a religion, it is a Deen. It reminds us that morals with all their mechanics, pros and con are directive and an aspiration.
