Islam the true religion which covers every aspect of life including economics

Reader comment on item: Islamic Economics: What Does It Mean?

Submitted by Mansoor (Pakistan), Sep 27, 2007 at 03:07

It is very hard to swallow the tough but very corrective rules of Islam

When we see the prevailing economic system of the world which the modern world claims to be perfect. The lives of the people has become miserable due to interests, markups and hidden charges in conventional banking system. The cancer of credit cards and loans has put the disasterous effect on personal lives of the common people. When we see in USA and other western countries where people are totally grabbed by the amount of debts they carry for the whole of their life span.

Islam drags you out of materialistic life but when we see towards the west we see that your need of luxuries in life has increased to such extent that you even dont hesitate to mortgage our every heart beat.

I think the interest based banking must be abolished by the west.

Once we drag our minds from the materialistic life. Our way of life will improve and we will not run for luxuries and would wait untill Allah grant us what he wants to.

I think I made my point. There is a verse of Quran which I want to quote here.102. Rivalry in Worldly Increase

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

[102:1] You are distracted by mutual competition in amassing (worldly benefits), [102:2] until you reach the graves. [102:3] No! (This is not a correct attitude.) You will soon know (the reality). [102:4] Again, you will soon know. 102:5] No! Only if you knew (it) with a sure knowledge! [102:6] You will certainly see the Hell, [102:7] then you will see it with full certitude. [102:8] Then you will be asked about all the pleasures (you enjoyed in the world).

Lets correct ourselves and turn our face towards Islam the true religion
