  • Book


  • Authors: Mirakhor, Abbas; Hamid, Idris Samawi (2009)

  • This book is to provide an introduction to Islam's conception of development and to locate it within the general topography of the spectrum of dominant ideas in their historical perspective. The book attempts to present this topography in the first three chapters throgh a brief review of major conceptions of development within the context of "twists and turns" of their historical evolution. The last three chapters present a rudimentary sketch of the contours of Islam's conception of development. Islam is a rules-based system, therefore, its conception of how humans and their collectivities can achieve material and non-material progress is also grounded on scaffolding of rule-complianc...

  • Authors: Wilson, Rodney (2015)

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Wilson, Rodney (2014)

  • There has been more concern with meeting immediate needs in the Islamic World than with longer-term issues of sustainability, as much of the region remains poor. Debate and writing on environmental issues in this region has therefore largely lagged behind elsewhere. It is worth noting that the 1.2 billion Muslims account for only 10 per cent of carbon dioxide emissions, while the United States, with less than a quarter of that population, is responsible for 20 per cent.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mirakhor, Abbas (2009-09-01)

  • After a millennium of atrophy, Muslims have begun a critical reexamination of Islamic thought in all its dimensions in light of the present state of the world. Arguably the first discipline that began this process during the early decades of last century was political philosophy. Reexamination of economics started much later in the second half of the twentieth century and has continued uninterrupted to the present. There is an ongoing constructive debate among scholars on the fundamental question of whether there is a discipline that can be defined unambiguously as Islamic Economics and if so what are its distinguishing characteristics? This presentation is a modest contribution to th...

  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Alam, Nafis (2018)

  • This paper places the articles in this special issue in the contexts of Islamic economics and finance research. It highlights the foundations of Islamic economics, which are in practice manifested in Islamic finance. Then, the paper brings up three key issues in Islamic finance today: the Islamicity of Islamic banking, real contributions of Islamic finance, and Islamic finance in the present monetary framework. While there are some promising theoretical and empirical findings pointing to positive contributions of Islamic finance, there is still a need for Islamic finance to distinguish itself from the conventional finance and to further demonstrate its real effect

  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E. (2017)

  • Present day Islamic economics is about 60 years old and takes its foundation to be the Qur'an as well as the way (sunnat) of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Views of Muslim scholars vary considerably regarding Islamic economics, from considering it to be: a) branch of conventional mainstream economics; b) a discipline that is neither capitalist nor socialist; c) a discipline that is guided by Islamic law in all its aspects. There have not yet emerged concepts or principles that are widely accepted by Muslim scholars as the foundation of Islamic economics and finance. The main advance made so far has been in Islamic finance, a branch of Islamic economics, where a number of rules are commonly ...
