Desperate non-muslims

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

Submitted by Gajibur Rahman (United Kingdom), Oct 7, 2008 at 13:15

Some non-muslims seem to be desperate to prove that islamic economics doesn't exist, while other non muslims say it does exist but won't ever work. Both these groups seem to be motivated by their shared hatred for the islamic religion. Both these groups are clueless about Islamic economics, as demonstrated by their moronic statements, which they have left regarding this article (like one person who said Sudan and saudi arabia implement islamic economics, which technically isn't true).

If Timur Kuran really thinks the islamic religion does not give rulings on economic issues then he is making a fool of himself and living in his own dream world. Islamic economics is basically economics based on the rulings given by the islamic sharia, that's all. And anyone that knows the islamic sharia knows that it gives many rulings which are to do with economics. The term 'islamic economics' maybe new but the concept has always been there in the islamic religion. The non-muslims seem to be in denial that their capitalism has major problems and that Islamic economics might be a solution. They are in denial because they don't want to admit that islam has an economic system far more superior to the capitalist system thought up by their idiotic forefathers.Poor infidels, a little inferiority complex developing there.
