Islam and development: the institutional framework
Views & Download
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-compliance which assures such progress.
