The Market and the Capital
o Right now the market is in the hands of the pseudo-religious. Just because there is no one to dictate prices and put them under pressure, is no reason for unfair dealing. The local governors must prevent overcharging!
o Islam does not favor unbidled, oppressive capitalism which deprives the masses; rather, Islam condemns such practices severely in the Qur'an and the Sunnah and regards it contrary to social justice. Nor is Islam in accord
with regimes like communism and Marxist-Leninism, which oppose private ownership and favor common ownership.
