The recent statistical data of the World Bank shows that the majority of people who live in poverty are found in Muslim countries. Moreover, almost all Muslim countries have huge unsettled external debts which result from compound interest, besides the corruption which prevails in almost all Muslim countries. Some scholars relate this fact to the oppression, humiliation and bad policies that had been imposed in almost all Muslim countries during colonization and have continued up to the present time. Others related this to the incompetence and the corruption on the part of their governments which led to the last Arab spring and what followed. We cannot deny the abovementioned reasons as the catalyst for the spread of the above-mentioned problems in the Islamic world. However, we also believe that the main reason is imbued among Muslims themselves since they neglected almost all their Islamic social financial institutions, including the institution of Zakat which is meant to eliminate riba, eradicate poverty and purify Muslim society from all sorts of corruptions.
