In order for us to be free from confusion and clear the vision, we should put the reader’s finger on the point of convergence and separation and ask about the concept of Islamic economics and its position among the many economic concepts.
The Islamic economic system in its principles - not in many of its societies - is a moderate middle system that is unfair individual, nor an extremist group that has not imprinted with the character of capitalist extravagance, nor with communist oppression combine the element of competition with the advantage of digging up the weak. Societies, if they adhere to its law, proceed in moderation and balance to achieving social justice and equality. According to which individuals and groups are equal in duties and rights, taking the interest of the individual taking it in the interest of the group. So that one side does not rise at the expense of the other or one right overrules the right, or one interest prevails over an interest.
Economics word a general word, its concepts are not specific, as manifested in the capitalist doctrine, which focuses on private ownership, production conditions and its factors, and that the freedom of a for one, taking care of his personal interest, thus preserving the element of competition, which is the main engine in the development of production… And the communist doctrine, which focuses on collective ownership, the system of distribution, and nations of private property, caring for the interest of the group, extirpating the needy class…While we see the Islamic economics proves private ownership within the limits legitimate legal, collective in the person of the state, or a tribal or local group …
And it means production and the conditions of acquisition, its concern for distribution, and the manner of consumption, combining between the element of competition that drives production, and the liberation of the needy class, which is guaranteed by the right to zakat and the like.
Hence, it becomes clear that economic concepts are not identifiable, except through each direction or doctrine separately. It was defined in Islamic economics – linguistically, originally and legally – by adopting the approach of moderation and moderation, as is taken from the words of the Prophet, as Imam Ahmad narrated in his Musnad: The Sharia is the person who is known for good management and balancing between resource and expenditure.
In his financial policy, he strives to mediate between excess and negligence… In spending he is neither extravagant nor stingy, and in production he proceeds at a balanced pace that guarantees success and protects against the consequences of improvisation, so you see all his actions It is imprinted with the kindness that Islam brought… and what is said about the individual is said in the family and the state…
