Property Concept
The concept of Islamic economics is not the slightest among which we have (ie, assets and income) really yours unless you eat and use up, you are wearing and you uninstall, and you spend for the sake of charity, which in return reward you save for you (spoken by Muslim and Ahmad).
Islam considers the property as a gift from God. As-Sibâ'î argue that Islam does not justify the existence of poverty, with reference to the Prophet Muhammad, "Poverty is almost brought people to the denial of Islam (kufr)." The Prophet also used to pray:
"O Allah, protect and help me to avoid the incompetence and laziness, fear and greed; protect and help me to avoid poverty, infidelity and bad behavior." O God, my hope would you give me directions to your ways, giving a sense of love and fear Thee, make me satisfied with what thou hast given me, and give it to my sufficiency. "
As-Sibâ'î to comment on the last prayer of the Prophet is that he showed a positive attitude toward wealth and not just a negative attitude towards poverty.
Although greed is a waste of any crime as well. People in Al-Mu'min Qur'ân described as one among the people who when spend treasure, not exaggerated and not cause harm, but (to maintain) a fair balance between the attitudes (extreme) is. " The Prophet once said: "God is pleased with His servant who showed signs of the favors given to him in his life (in the sense of ownership and spending)." Nevertheless, in spending for charity, to improve the living conditions of communities and disseminate the teachings of Islam, the concept superfluous does not apply. There is no restriction in the amount of spending and any expenditure of this type for this purpose will get a reward (reward) from Allah.
The spirit of Islam in relation to assets and expenditures are summarized in two words of the Prophet Muhammad following:
Once when the Prophet Muhammad asked his Companions: "To whom ye among the heirs of property worth more than his own?" They said: "Every man considers his own property more valuable than yours heirs." Then the Prophet said: "Your wealth is what you use and heir property is that you do not use."
There was nothing between that we have (ie, assets and income) really yours unless you eat and use up, you are wearing and you uninstall, and you spend for the sake of charity, which in return reward you save for you. " (Spoken by Muslim and Ahmad).
Here the components in the presence of behavioral Mu'min. Studies on the economy suggests that the assumption of a merely materialistic motivation is clearly not realistic. However, these factors are non-materialistic to necessarily be excluded from the economic analysis with the intention of separating the symptoms ekonomiknya. However, although this can simplify the problem in order to achieve the study objectives, the factors of non-material should be integrated back in the analysis phase is higher.
By considering these factors, maximization of planning is no longer subject to dispute from the perspective of Islamic thought. Maximization plan could even be used as a scheme dirampakkan life as a whole, namely, "Whenever something is otherwise good people should do as much as he can." That's the best, but if not impossible, the next best alternative is expressed by the famous order of Islamic thought that people should sacrifice less good if this is the only way to get the greater good. Or put it in a negative way, (that) people are allowed to do anything wrong when it is the only way to avoid something worse.
