Islamic Ethics: a very select bibliography

Here is a very select list of titles, in English, on Islamic ethics.” Of course ethics in Islam cannot be discussed without — at the very least — a corresponding knowledge of Islamic theology and jurisprudence. Still, and for eminently reasonable if not rational philosophical and comparative reasons, we can make sense of “Islamic ethics” as such, much in the manner we speak of and write about other kinds of religious ethics (e.g., Christian, Buddhist...).
