  • Maqasid Al-Shariah:Maqasid al-Shariah is to promote the welfare of the people by safeguarding their- Faith Prosperity (descendant) Life & intellect Wealth

    Maqasid (objectives of) al-Shariah There have been efforts by jurists to add to the list of these five requisites and also to change their sequence, but it seems that these attempts have, in general, not satisfied most jurists.

    Imam Abu iIhaq-Al-Shatibi (d. 790/1388), writing a little less than three centuries after Al-Ghazali, put his stamp of approval on his list as well as the sequence, thereby indicating that both of these are the most preferable in terms of their harmony with the essence of the Shariah.

  • The Strategy

    A socially agreed filter mechanism A strong motivating system to induce the individual to render his best in his own Interest as well as the interest of the society Restructuring of the whole economy with the objective of realizing the maqasid in spite of scarce resources. A positive and strong goal-oriented role for The government

  • The Islamic World View Inability of the capitalist & socialist countries as well as the developing economies to realize simultaneously the goals of both efficiency & equity Social Darwinism, survival of the fittest, class struggle, maximum want satisfaction, material condition of life proved unsuccessful.

  • Maqasid Al-ShariahHuman well-being to be realized by ensuring the enrichment of the following five ingredients for every individual.


  • Islamic Financial System Islamic financial system(ifs):A financial system that is based on Islamic principles and values, which eliminates riba and ensure a profit sharing mechanism in the financial system, may be called IFS. It may be characterized by the absence' of interest based financial institution & transactions, doubtful transactions or gharar, stocks of companies dealing in unlawful activities, unethical or immoral transactions such as market manipulation, insider trading short-selling etc.

    Differences between CFS & IFSThe conventional financial system is of two types.

    1) socialistic financial system and 2) capitalistic financial system - both systems have been proved inefficient to establish economic balance in the society.

  • Principles of an Islamic Financial SystemThe basic framework for an Islamic financial system is a set of rules and laws, collectively referred to as Shariah, governing economic, social, political and cultural aspects of Islamic societies. Shariah originates from the rules dictated by the Quran and its practices, and explanations rendered (more commonly known as Sunnah) by the Prophet Muhammad. Further elaboration of the rules is provided by scholars in Islamic jurisprudence within the framework of the Quran and Sunnah. The basic principles of an Islamic financial system can be summarized as follows:

    Prohibition of interest : Prohibition of Riba, a term literally meaning "an excess" and interpreted as "any unjustifiable increase of capital whether in loans or sales" is the central tenet of the system. More precisely, any positive, fixed, predetermined rate tied to the maturity and the amount of principal (i.e.) guaranteed regardless of the performance of the investment) is considered Riba and is prohibited. The general consensus among Islamic scholars is that Riba covers not only usury but also the charging of "interest" as widely practiced.

  • Islamic Financial SystemThis prohibition is based on arguments of social justice, equality, and property rights. Islam encourages the earning of profits but forbids the charging of interest because profits, determined ex post, symbolize successful entrepreneurship and creation of additional wealth whereas interest, determined ex ante, is a cost that is accrued irrespective off the outcome of business operations and may not create wealth if there are business losses. Social justice demands that borrowers and lenders share rewards s well as losses in an equitable fashion and that the process of wealth accumulation and distribution in the economy be fair and representative of true productivity.Risk sharing: Because interest is prohibited, suppliers of funds become investors instead of creditors. The provider of financial capital and the entrepreneur share business risks in return for shares of the profits.

  • Islamic Financial SystemMoney as "Potential" Capital: Money is treated as "Potential" capital -that is, it becomes actual capital only when it joins hands with other resources to undertake a productive activity. Islam recognizes the time value of money, but only when it acts as capital, not when it is "Potential" capital.Prohibition of speculative behavior: An Islamic financial system discourages hoarding and prohibits transactions featuring extreme uncertainties, gambling, and risks.Sanctity of contracts: Islam upholds contractual obligations and the disclosure of information as a sacred duty. This feature is intended to reduce the risk of asymmetric information and moral hazard.Shariah approved activities: Only those business activities that do not violate the rules of Shariah qualify for investment. For example, any investment in businesses dealing with alcohol, gambling, and casinos would be prohibited.
