A research project devoted to understanding Islamic teachings related to economics and their economic implications.


At theoretical and philosophical level, the project endeavors to explore and explain the teachings of Islam and the Islamic worldview. It will strive to understand the expected and actual impact of Islamic teachings and worldview on the values, preferences and behavior of an individual and the effect of these on the socioeconomic relations.

At the applied level, the project aims to research on institutions which are consistent with Islamic principles and teachings in order to see their economic potential to fulfill the contemporary needs of modern societies and economies.

At the analytical level, the project strives to objectively and (to the extent possible) empirically appraise the institutions – both contemporary and theoretical – with regards to their economic effects in modern societies and economies.

  • The project will try to support and promote research and researchers in Islamic economics.
  • The project will strive to promote its research at various platforms including research conferences, seminars and public talks.

    It’s quite great if after research, the results and policy implications will be applied for groming an Islamic society.


  10. Yousuf Ibnul Hasan says:

    Indeed it is an interesting effort that will serve the purpose to create awareness for the base of banking, finance and investment in Islamic guidance. I am in this field since 1982 and entered into the profession after acquiring academic achievement. Being the student of Dr Ahmed Al Najjar, the founder of Islamic Banking system and one of the key figures of Islamic economic system, his first day speech to the class room was on Islamic economics and he stated that who ever understood the basics of Islamic economics, he can be expert in Islamic Banking. Unfortunately, we stress on Islamic Banking, Takaful or Finance but we do not realize the information, law, guidance, perimeters and rules are defined in Islamic Economics that indicates that socio-economics is the solution of all economic crises and perform the role of factors of production, which are Man Money and Commodity. These are the real tools for efficient commercial activities that lead to the nations in the development of their economics stability. I am keen to read and contribute to this forum in my humble manner and to seek the guidance of all those who participate in this noble cause. I appreciate the initiator of this page.

    Dear brother Salman, be asured that you are not alone in the effort to promote Islmic ideals. Therefore success prayers are needed TO & FROM. I have been following your articles for quite some time & have being motivated & inspired by your writhings. Thus, am currently focusing on the factors responsible for the slow pace of education & economic development among Muslim Ummah generally with particular refrence to Northern Nigeria and then attemting Islamic theories and concepts to profer solutions. If you have the time and interest, I would send you a draft copy for your critique.

    Assalam u Alaikum warahmatullahi wabaraktuh

    Dear Managers oF IEP

    I’m a researcher on bringing solutions for economies in the World. I’m a Muslim Researcher. I already have found the solution for the biggest part of the problem. One of the major Problem Muslims have is that they don’t have the resources for funds to provide 100% usury free finance. But, they depend on foreign investors or banks which causes them to go by the terms of the investors and forcing them to forge Islamic finance to make it to suite the conventional system loans.

    Best regards

    Rashid Kaddoura

      Obvious that our system has to be in line with Economic System of Islam.This falls short of that.Mufti(s) should be careful.They have already handed over Global Islamic Economy to West.Solution is Ijma’a.
