Dr. S. M. Yusuf
The book is mainly concerned with the concrete economic system of Islam. The religious faith is referred to only in so far as it motivates and characterises the system. In dealing with the concrete problems of economic life, controversies around the accepted principles of Islam such as the prohibition of riba are discarded. Attention is focussed on agricultural land tenure and the methods of industrialism, which violate the fundamental guarantees of Islam in regard to the free character of the gifts of Nature, the freedom of trade, the operation of the natural factors of supply and demand and the maintenance of the gold standard.
