ISLAMIC ECONOMICS AND ITS RELEVANCE TODAY
After 250 years of exposure to Western riba drenched Economics what is our version? What is the Islamic version of Economics if it were drawn from Quran and Sunnah and Islamic Jurisprudence’s Secondary Sources? What is the Economic system Muslim nations would be operating in, if we are guided by the Quran and Sunnah, and the Disciplines of Fiqh and Usul Fiqh?
As the victims of the European hijack of our civilization and destiny, we owe it to ourselves to know what it would have been, and more importantly what it now, must be.
Is our resources really scarce? Is man a business animal or khalifatul ardh? Is our ownership of wealth absolute, with no rightful claims on it by society? Is there life without interest? Is debt the only way? Why did Allah swt and His Rasul declared war on the practitioners of riba? Does not our costs and benefits analysis extends to the Hereafter? Are we just to all factors of production? Is capital a factor of production? Can we separate Economics from money? Is not the current money system the dust of riba?
Do we truly understand the extend of the fasad of our current economics and money system? Who speaks for the silent sufferers of the system? Who cries for the marhaen?
God is Owner ; Man is mere Trustee. Lets find AlFalah. Lets maximise Human Welfare. Is that not the duty of the Khalifatul Ardh?
