Readings on Islamic Economics II

Economy; examines the behaviors of economic agents in the context of production, consumption and distribution activities and the resulting relationships. It is an undeniable fact that the processes of production, distribution, processing and consumption of the resources that Allah entrusts for the needs of mankind have been changed according to the structure of the society and the world view. In other words, every realm of imagination / worldview can have its own economic conception / paradigm and therefore its own economic system.
