Ethics and morality are able to be applied to a very large amount of things, from social, to international, to more.

The reward and main goal of Islam is to reach paradise, and everlasting life in death
The penalty for not following Islam is death
To qualify for Islam you must say prayers proclaiming Allah as the only god, and Muhammad, Allah's prophet. You must also take a shower to cleanse yourself of your past life
There is lastly the five pillars of islam, Sawm, Zakat, Hajj, Salat, Shahadah. Which will be described more in Worship.
Political Impact
*Political Impact: Islam changed the religious beliefs of the Arabian Peninsula. It was predominantly polytheistic prior to Islam's. Islam united the tribes under one religious banner. When Mohammed died in 632 AD, there was a dispute among who should be chosen as the new caliph.
*These two divisions of Islam were called Shia and Sunni Muslims. Sunni Muslims believed that the next caliph and political leader did not need to be related to Mohammed. Shia Muslims believe that the caliph should be related to Mohammed by blood
*Today's political impacts: The religion of Islam has often been given negative attention due to recent religious fanatics and jihads who claim they are warriors of Allah. Islam is a religion of peace that as simply been misunderstood.
