The author depicts the basic principles of the Islamic Economic System in the light of the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah. He also offers a comparative study of the economic systems functioning under the three ideologies viz., Communism, Capitalism 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 of humanity.
While the Economic System gifted by Islam, like its laws and orders are relevant to all other social 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 favors class-struggle and hatred. It provides real peace, safety and tranquility to mankind.
