in response to reader comment: Ostrich approach

Islam is a religion who deals with behaviour of indiviual, with indiviual, with society, with universe and with Islam itself. It require a strong believe on Allah (God), his Messangers and Instructions of Allah in shape of Quraan. Islam broadly deals with the econemy of the society and gives in Quraan a best and moral system of Zakat. The purpose to this System is to circulate the money between all the catagories of people living in an Ideal Islamic Society.

Islam has a very shining past in the era of early muslim Caliphs. These Caliphs were true muslims and strictly follow the rules and regulations defined by Allah through his messanger Mohammad (Peace be upon Him). Muslims were very regular in paying their Zakat and was very concious to help each other. They had conqured almost Half of the World by adopting Laws of Allah, instructions of Mohammad (Peace be upon Him) shape of Quraan. Those were Model enomies for rest of the world and still we Muslim , proud them. In that economy circle the rich people had to search for needy ones to pay the zakat as all were honest and well off to make their livings.

Unfortunately Muslims are far away from the object of a Muslim's life by not adopting Laws of Allah defined by Mohammad (Peace be upon Him) and instructions of Quraan. If we the Muslims may adopt these Laws and instructions espacially the effective Zakat System, we can prove as a model to the rest of the world.
