Al-Khamsun (The Fifty)

The Muslim Economy


As part of the Al-Khamsun series, we will in this term start a new set of chapters on the Muslim economy. 

Chapter headings include:

  • Trade is natural and part of surviving and living.

  • A community can never lead nor prosper if they do not master trade.

  • It is not possible for government(s) to take care of all people and their needs. Therefore, there must exist an economic system which not only takes care of all people and their needs, but also takes care of the government itself.

  • The Islamic economic system seeks to achieve stability, growth and empowerment for all.

  • Waqfs not only assist people in emergency, but also assist the state and leaders (politicians), and can even assist the well off.

  • ‘Smart’ donations are encouraged as opposed to random or wasteful, unempowering donations

  • Zakat empowers the principle of equal opportunity of income and trade for all.
