Economics at your fingertips  

Handbook of Empirical Research on Islam and Economic Life

Edited by M. Kabir Hassan ()

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: In Islamic jurisprudence, a comprehensive ethic has been formulated governing how business and commerce should be run, how accountability to God and the community is to be achieved, and how banking and finance is to be arranged. This Handbook examines how well these values are translated into actual performance. It explores whether those holding true to the system are hindered and put at a disadvantage or whether the Islamic institutions have been able to demonstrate that faith-based activities can be rewarding, both economically and spiritually.
