This book is an English rendering of a popular Arabic book entitled Mushkala al-Faqr wa Kaifa â€˜Aljiha al-Islam by the renowned Muslim XE “Muslim” Â Scholar â€˜YusÅ«f al-QardÄwi. The author depicts the basic principles of the Islamic Economic System XE “Economic System” Â in the light of the Holy Qurâ€™an XE “Holy Qurâ€™an” Â and the Sunnah XE “Sunnah” .
He also offers a comparative study of the economic XE “economic” Â systems functioning under the three ideologies viz., Communism XE “Communism” , Capitalism XE “Capitalism” Â and Islam, contrasting them objectively and establishing the superiority of the latter with convincing arguments. Capitalistic and Communistic ideologies, have proven to be lacking in giving mankind the much needed peace and security. These ideologies are rather fatal to the peace and progress XE “progress” Â of humanity XE “humanity” .Â Â While the Economic System XE “Economic System” Â gifted by Islam, like its laws XE “laws” Â and orders are relevant to all other social XE “social” Â disciplines, can safely be called universal law. It works in any kind of society. It is a system of brotherhood and mutual love and affection. It never favours class-struggle and hatred. It provides real peace, safety and tranquility to mankind.
