Alms (Zakat) is a remedy for economic recession
The economy is the power of nations and peoples, especially in this age when some of the nation has become hostage to the Section, but rather the dividing line between progress and underdevelopment. Thus, economic studies have taken center stage and have preoccupied finance, sociologists and the economy.
In the field of economic transactions, Islam is replete with the rules and disciplines governing both consumer, producer, market and economic activity. Thus, the Islamic economy was able to solve economic problems because of its characteristics and its non-realized qualities.
This has been witnessed by Western economists and intellectuals themselves, for example: Professor of French economics Jak Ostri, who confirms in his book ((Islam and Economic development)) that the methods of development Economic is not confined to the well-known capitalist and socialist economists, but there is a dominant third economy, the Islamic economy that will prevail in the future. Because in the words of Ostri a complete way of life, it achieves advantages and avoids all disadvantages. Islam is a system of high life and morality, and these two interdependent destinations are inseparable.
In his book (Thirty Years in Islam), Lion Roshi says that Islam has found the solution to the social and economic issues that occupy the world.
The first God said: (But the believers are brothers...)) The verse, these are the most beautiful principles of social cooperation.
The second is the chances of Alms(Zakat) in the money of all money, so that the State has the right to satisfy it if the rich do not voluntarily pay it.
Jak Ostri confirms this fact: Muslims do not accept a secular economy, a economy that derives its strength from the Qur'an is necessarily a moral economy. This ethic can give new meaning to the concept of value or fill the void that emerged as a result of the industrialization mechanism.
"I am surprised by the social and economic systems established by Islam, especially zakat, inheritance legislation, and the prohibition of Usury ( RIBA)," said Russian professor WSloz Ygeriski.
This is confirmed by the French thinker Roger Jaroudi: The Islamic Economy of the principles of Islam is the antithesis of the western model, in which production and consumption together are an end in itself, that is, increased production More and more, and increased consumption faster and faster, for anything, useful or unhelpful, without regard for the purposes of humanity. The Islamic economy is not subject to blind mechanisms, it is consistent and governed by humanitarian goals and the purposes of the divine is interconnected.
These are some of the testimonies of scholars, intellectuals, economists and Western scholars who testify to the economic and social justice of Islam.
Thus, Alms(Zakat) is part of the private financial system of individuals in regulating their trade and seizing their money Alms(Zakat) also contributes to solving the social, economic and financial problems of individuals and communities. Zakat is the most important means of social solidarity in life. Alms(Zakat) contributes to solving the problem of unemployment and the employment of a number of unemployed persons.
Alms(Zakat) occupies a prime place in the system of integrated Islamic economy, where it meets multiple functions in the treatment of economic recession, in the field of constructive philanthropy, and meets many other needs.
Therefore, some scholars and researchers have seen the need to add some contemporary applications in relation to Alms(Zakat) banks, in terms of paying zakaah to low income earners whose income is not enough, whether they are workers or Employees or users.
It is also possible to spend the deceased's religion on Alms(Zakat) as a friend of Those in debt, if his inheritance is not fulfilled, and his heirs have not paid for it, in that it is safe for the debt owners, support for social solidarity and urge the loan The good who reassures her to repay the debtor. One important way in this time is to deal with the problems of young people, especially singles, and it is desirable that Alms(Zakat) contribute to solving these problems and addressing the situation of these young people, through participation in marriage projects and abstinence Young people and girls who are unable to afford marriage.
It should be noted that there are very important issues related to Alms(Zakat), its banks and its funds need to be researched and schools by scientists, jurists, interested and researchers.
The situation of employees involved in the collection, disbursement and distribution of Alms(Zakat), how are they treated in the light of labor regulations and laws governing workers and employees?
It is also necessary to use social experts to identify the poor and needy and to study the conditions of Those in debt and the authors of their hearts and the children of the Road and aspects ((for the sake of God)).
In addition, zakat institutions need modern techniques to apply Alms(Zakat), and use computers and warehouses to save Alms(Zakat) funds.
Are there funds for zakat that are between taxation and exchange, can they be invested, or are the frozen secretariats placed?
What is the need for a competent legal committee as full-time permanent experts Alms(Zakat) Alms(Zakat) Alms(Zakat)to solve the problems and examine the difficulties arising in matters of Alms(Zakat)?
In order to achieve the legitimate aims of Alms(Zakat) and the divine purposes of its premise and the lofty goals of its legislation, Alms(Zakat) should be based on its functions in terms of tackling the problem of unemployment and the phenomenon of poverty, by securing Working for people, providing workers and young people with a decent living, preserving the human dignity of individuals, providing the family and children with the necessary sustenance and food, and contributing to Economic movement in production and tender, elimination of the Outlets of corruption and crime.
In conclusion, Islam in its aspects, instructions and provisions is not without economic reports, including:
1) Money is the money of God and the people are trustees.
2) The permissible methods of disposing of the money are Rightfully defined.
3) The collection of money will be lawful to the reasons..
4) The market in Islam has its etiquette and rulings.
5) The usury (Riba) is wrongdoing in Islam.
6) Alms (Zakat ( is a right for poor and needy people.
Thus, the Islamic economy is worship, obedience, commissioning and honesty, our modern world aspires to, as it is devoid of the defects of individual capitalism and tyrannical socialism.
