In this semantic network, religious and belief concepts are the same as moral concepts and are located in the same network, and sometimes they have become synonymous with each other. Ethical concepts in this network are divided into two general classes based on the fundamental conflict between disbelief and faith, and according to them, all human beings in the verses of the Qur'an, based on the division into two groups of believers and unbelievers, do not have any common moral qualities.
