  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Abbas Mirakhor (2009)

  • 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...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mansor H. Ibrahim; Nafis Alam (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: Belal E. Baaquie (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 ...

  • Islam provides many institutions within the structure of Islamic economic system which if studied carefully can be put into practice in order to solve the current global economic and financial crisis. The current global economic and financial crises, together with the Arab Spring and the Arab Awakening in the 21st century, offers a good opportinity for Muslims to revive their current economic system according to the guidance from the Quran and the Sunnah: not only to solve the current crises but to revive the perfect system that Allah (swt) sent to serve all mankind in the best way as mentioned in the Quran (Surat al-Maidah 5:3). In view of that, Islam is not just a religion of worshi...

  • Academic Proceeding


  • Authors: Cizakca, Murat (2011)

  • In this article I will attempt to explain long term causes of decline of the Islamic world with specific reference to the Ottoman empire. The emphasis on the Ottoman empire is due to the enormous territories this empire controlled until the twentieth century as well as the survival of the rich Turkish archives. These archives contain some 400 million documents and are unique in the Islamic world. During the period 1453 to 1606, from the conquest of Constantinople to the treaty of Sitva-Torek (Zitvatorok), the Ottoman Empire emerged as a world power. As a world power it was capable of directly challenging Spain in the Western Mediterranean and supporting its enemies, the newly emerging...
