true wealth, at any given moment is given by Allah and that
I must selectively produce and selectively consume, to
achieve real progress and development.

true value of other's goods and services, not to cheat,
deceive or take possession of such values through theft or
any act of force.
- Not to withhold goods and
services from others, hoarding or monopolistic
- To set aside a clearly
defined portion of my excess goods and services produced
after satisfying my basic needs. Zakaat, to be spent over
the matters of the community welfare and share it with those
who are temporarily or permanently unproductive.
- To act in submission to the
Almighty, to make its free choice, and allow all others the
free choice within the heavenly imposed limits and

false needs or falsely satisfying unremitting needs of

failure of earthly endeavours remain the prerogative of the
Almighty Alone, as both wealth and property are His to give
