Islam and Economics: A Primer on Markets, Morality, and Justice (Paperback)
This primer is an introductory text to rediscover the principles of commerce and economics revealed in the Qur'an, espoused by the Sunnah (practices of the Prophet Muhammad), and understood by the jurists. Islam offers three moral principles of economic organization: ownership, wealth creation, and wealth circulation. Based on these principles, Islam and Economics derives a framework of operational institutional tenents for the economic organization of a society. It addresses all important business, policy, and equity issues that any economic system should resolve and broadens the discussion on the modern discipline of "Islamic economics."
