Islam and Economic Development
Dr. Chapra has taken up a question of vital importance for all human beings, but specially for the present-day Muslims. The question relates to the current models of economic development evolved in the West. It is evident that this is one of the burning questions of the day for the Muslims who are naturally desirous of overcoming their present under-development. Perhaps it is no exaggeration to say that Dr. Chapra’s book is the first serious and significant effort to develop the intellectual blueprints of an alternate, Islamic model of economic development.
