Islamic Perspectives on Sustainable Financial Development

by Kabir Hassan & Mehmet Saraç

The real world free-market economies have long been driven by the linear economy paradigm in which the ecological environment is not recognized as a resource. The linear process, a natural consequence of capitalism, has caused the fast exhaustion of the resources for the sake of “development.” After serious environmental catastrophes and financial crises, the common sense of the world has admitted that there problems with conventional economics and has begun to search for more ‘sustainable’ economic and financial systems. The idea that firms should operate in a manner where they provide dignified living to people and consider the needs of next generations has become widespread especially in last three decades. Termed as the ‘stakeholder approach’, this understanding contributed to pave the way to the notion of ‘sustainability’, which calls for taking measures to solve the fundamental problems such as income and wealth inequality, poverty, corruption, climate change and disappearance of animal species. As a result of the global concern around the effect of human actions on our environment, the idea of sustainability received serious attention and was given a fillip by the publications by The United Nations, which outlined the famous Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Muslims of Central Asia: An Introduction

by Galina M. Yemelianova

Between the tenth and sixteenth centuries Central Asia was one of the most prestigious cultural areas of the entire Muslim world, playing a pivotal role in the Silk Road trade. Throughout that history, and up to the present, Tajiks, Uzbeks, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, Turkmen and other Muslim peoples of Central Asia have developed their own unique understanding and practice of Islam which has shaped their national identity and particular social and political evolution. These special characteristics of Central Asian Islam ensured its survival during seventy years of Soviet atheist rule, while in the post-Soviet period Islam has been integrated into nation-building projects in constitutionally secular Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan. This absorbing history is traced in this fascinating study which shows how, from the seventh century to the present day, the region’s people have negotiated their distinctively Central Asian Islamic identity in the face of enduring external Islamic and non-Islamic dominations, ethnic nationalisms and, more recently, global transnational Islamic influences.

Political Muslims: Understanding Youth Resistance in a Global Context

by Tahir Abbas & Sadek Hamid

In the last few decades, the media, academics, and the general public have put considerable focus on Muslim culture and politics around the world. Specifically, the rising population of young Muslims has generated concerns about religious radicalism, Islamism, and conflicts in multicultural societies. However, few studies have been devoted to how a new generation of Muslims is reshaping society in positive ways. In Political Muslims, Abbas and Hamid provide a new perspective on Muslim youth, presenting them as agents of creative social change and as active participants in cultural and community organizations where resistance leads to negotiated change. In a series of case studies that cross the globe, contributors capture the experiences of being young and Muslim in ten countries—the United States, Canada, Britain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, and Indonesia. They examine urban youth from various socioeconomic backgrounds, addressing issues that range from hybrid identities and student activism to the strategic use of music and social media. With diverse disciplinary and methodological approaches, Political Muslims gives readers a nuanced and authentic understanding of the everyday social, economic, and political realities of young people.

Methodology of Islamic Economics: Problems and Solutions

ed. by Necmettin Kızılkaya

In its pursuit to equip the reader with a basic knowledge of Islamic economics, this book divulges the micro-foundations of the discipline, and highlights the predominant schools of thought that exist in the field. It explains, in simple terms, what Islamic economics entails and how it can be studied as a science in relation to the Holy Quran, the Sunnah and the Islamic intellectual tradition based on these two sources.
The book familiarizes the reader with knowledge of the basic maxims of the discipline. It then establishes the arguments that are presented by the proponents of religion-based economics, specifically Islam, and apprises readers about the aforementioned schools as they exist. A number of chapters consider the dimension of the dilemmas the discipline is facing, and the chronological progress of the field is reviewed, hence providing a comprehensive overview of the topic. The book deals with the issues about the origins of Islamic economics, the basic methodological questions, the use of the opportunities offered by fiqh in the methodological discussions and the main problems arising from the encounter with other cultures and civilizations. It offers practical solutions, despite the differing schools of thought, not unlike the development of conventional Economics where radical differences between Keynesian, Classical and Monetarist approaches existed. It concludes by incorporating some of the finest works that explain to the reader how Islamic economics may progress as a discipline.
This guide will provide both students and researchers in Comparative Economic Studies, Islamic Economics and Islamic Finance with an essential overview of the field.

Integration of waqf and Islamic microfinance for poverty reduction: case studies of Malaysia, Indonesia and Bangladesh

ed. by Savaş Alpay and Mohamed Aslam Haneef

This report presents the output of two-year collaboration between the Centre for Islamic Economics, IIUM and the Statistical, Economic, Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries (SESRIC) on a research project that covered three OIC member countries namely, Malaysia, Indonesia and Bangladesh.

Bitmeyen İhanet: Emperyalizmin Gölgesinde Filistin Sorunu ve Uluslararası Hukuk

by Berdal ARAL

Kuşku yok ki, “Filistin Sorunu”, Ortadoğu’daki ve belki de tüm İslam dünyasındaki “sorunların anası”dır. Bu sorun çözülmediği müddetçe, Ortadoğu coğrafyasının huzura kavuşmasını beklemek hayâldir. Siyonist devlet ile başta ABD olmak üzere onun destekçisi olan emperyalist aktörlerin bugün Filistin sorununu çözümsüzlüğe terk etmiş olmaları, aynı zamanda Ortadoğu coğrafyasındaki ve daha genel olarak İslam dünyasındaki emperyalist kıskacın henüz yeterince gevşetilememiş olmasının da başta gelen delilidir.
Bu kitabın, Filistin Sorunu’na ilişkin literatüre şu dört açıdan katkıda bulunduğu ileri sürülebilir: birincisi, bu çalışmada Filistin Sorunu uluslararası hukuk açısından ele alınmaktadır; ikincisi, kitaptaki uluslararası hukuk tahlilleri disiplinler-arası bir yaklaşım içinde yapılmaktadır; üçüncüsü, Arap Ortadoğu’sunun 20. yüzyılda manda rejimleri altına konma süreci ve bunun yol açtığı siyasî travmalar, Filistin’deki Siyonist sömürgeciliğin ve İsrail yayılmacılığının hedefine ulaşmasına imkân veren daha genel bağlam olarak kitapta incelenmektedir; son olarak, bu kitapta, “sorunun bir parçası” olarak, Filistin trajedisine ilişkin küresel düzeydeki hâkim akademik söyleme de ışık tutulmaktadır.

Islamic Law of the Sea

by Hassan Khalilieh

The doctrine of modern law of the sea is commonly believed to have developed from Renaissance Europe. Often ignored though is the role of Islamic law of the sea and customary practices at that time. In this book, Hassan S. Khalilieh highlights Islamic legal doctrine regarding freedom of the seas and its implementation in practice. He proves that many of the fundamental principles of the pre-modern international law governing the legal status of the high seas and the territorial sea, though originating in the Mediterranean world, are not a necessarily European creation. Beginning with the commonality of the sea in the Qur'an and legal methods employed to insure the safety, security, and freedom of movement of Muslim and aliens by land and sea, Khalilieh then goes on to examine the concepts of the territorial sea and its security premises, as well as issues surrounding piracy and its legal implications as delineated in Islamic law.

Global Political Economy After the Crisis: Theoretical Perspectives and Country Experiences

by Sadık Ünay

The established structural parameters of the global political economy underwent a profound transformation following the global economic crisis which triggered a paradigmatic change in terms of both the theoretical underpinnings and practical formulations of mainstream approaches to macroeconomic management and development. Neither the industrialized nor the newly industrializing economies were immune from the tumultuous impact of the ever-deepening global crisis, as a result of which a series of non-conventional policy responses were developed and swiftly implemented by policy makers across a wide range of policy areas. Counter-cyclical fiscal policies and stimulus packages to spur dwindling growth, heterodox monetary and central banking policies to rescue financial institutions in distress, strategic trade policies to maintain international competitiveness and market share become increasingly widespread. Neo-Keynesian emergency measures almost became the global norm, rather than the exception, in most of the leading global economic powers; thereby substantially increasing the relative emphasis in the economic importance and role of the state in the post-crisis period. Against this critical global background. The collection contains articles that present general analyses pertaining to theoretical and practical issues pertinent to the post-crisis transformation of the global political economy; as well as interesting country case studies illuminating the positive and negative features of national experiments with crisis-management in emerging economies. The authors seek to reply to the critical question of how the global governance structures, theoretical perspectives used to legitimize them, national policy patterns, and public policy attitudes affecting crisis response strategies were influenced by the unprecedented impact of the global economic crisis. The collection includes innovative pieces of analysis that looks at the ascendancy of multipolarity in the global system and perceptive changes on the BRICS; the shifting natures of macroeconomic management, central banking and global governance architecture through the empowerment of global platforms such as the G20; the fate of the developmental state in East Asia after the global crisis; the crisis-exit performances of emerging economic powers such as China, India, Brazil and Turkey; post-crisis methods of economic adjustment across East Asia in Japan, China and Korea; the potential of new metropoles such as Shanghai to emerge as international financial centers; the dynamics influencing the level of gold reserves held by central banks; changes in Cuba along with the world economy; and energy security in the Persian Gulf. This book carries the promise of offering the readers a fresh and insightful analysis on both the theoretical and practical manifestations of the ongoing structural transformation in the global system from an inclusive international political economy (IPE) perspective that liberally draws from the disciplines of political science, economics, history, international relations and sociology. As such, it will attract the attention of scholars, academics and intellectuals contemplating the future trajectory of the global political economy after the crisis; as well as policy makers and practitioners focusing on the “global shift” towards emerging economies.

Challenges and Impacts of Religious Endowments on Global Economics and Finance

by Buerhan Saiti and Adel Sarea

Poverty is one of the top problems the Muslim community faces today. A scholastic approach towards a solution based on the values and cultural contexts of the Muslim community holds great importance and significance to the Islamic civilizations and modern economic and cultural applications in the world.

While highlighting topics such as Islamic finance, risk management, and economic development, this publication explores adopting Islamic approaches to contemporary socio-economic issues and the methods of content analysis and meta-analysis methods. This book is ideally designed for professionals, economist regulators, financial analysts, academics, researchers, and postgraduate students seeking current research on modernized Islamic economic models in order to tackle the problem of fiscal deficiency.

Defending the Transgressed by Censuring the Reckless Against the Killing of Civilians

by Muhammad Afifi Al-Akiti

This chapter presents the fatwa or 'response by a qualified Muslim Scholar' against the killing of civilians written by the Oxford-based Malaysian jurist of the Shafii School. Shaykh Muhammad Afifi al-Akiti's Defending the transgressed by censuring the reckless against the killing of Civilians offer some guidance on the issue of targeting civilians and civilian centres by suicide bombing. The chapter also provides an alphabetical glossary of Arabic terms. In a Muslim state, decisions on questions relating to ceasefire, peace settlement and the judgment of prisoners of war can be taken by the executive or political authority or by a subordinate authority appointed by the former authority. The result in Islamic jurisprudence is: if a Muslim carries out an attack voluntarily, he becomes a murderer and not a martyr or a hero and he will be punished for it in the Next World.

İslam İktisadı ve Piyasa

ed. by Lütfi Sunar

1980’lerden itibaren neoliberal politikaların yaygınlaşması ve finans kapitalizminin küresel ölçekte etkinleşmesi ile beraber bankalar aracılığıyla insanlar borç, kredi ve faiz sarmalına mahkûm edilmiş, öte yandan finans kurumları kârlarını fâhiş oranlarda arttırmıştır. Finans kurumlarının etki alanını bu derece genişlettiği bir dönemde, İslam iktisadı üzerine yapılan çalışmalar da yön değiştirmiştir. Son otuz yıldır yapılan çalışmalar neticesinde gelinen noktaya bakıldığında, alternatif sistem arayışlarının, mevcut sistem içerisinde var olma çabalarına doğru evirildiği görülmektedir. İktisadi bir sistem oluşturma arayışları, özellikle finansal boyutla sınırlandırılmış ve faizsiz bankacılık hizmetlerinin başlatılması ile Müslümanlara sistem içerisinde yer açılmıştır. İslam iktisadı çalışmalarını, finansal alanın kısıtlamasından kurtararak bütün yönleriyle ele almak ve İslam iktisadının alternatif bir sistem olarak iddiasını sürdürmesini sağlamak maksadıyla “II. İslam İktisadı Atölyesi: İslam İktisadı ve Piyasa” başlıklı uluslararası bir toplantı gerçekleştirilmiştir. Elinizdeki kitap, bu toplantıya dünyanın farklı coğrafyalarından katılan ilim insanlarının sunduğu tebliğlerin bir seçkisinden oluşmaktadır. Kitapta, İslam ve piyasa arasındaki ilişki odak noktası olarak belirlenmiş, adil, insani ve sürdürülebilir bir piyasa modelinin imkânı tarihsel bilgiler ve mevcut iktisadi koşullar ışığında tartışılmıştır.

Islamic Monetary Economics: Finance and Banking in Contemporary Muslim Economies

ed. by Taha Eğri and Zeyneb Hafsa Orhan

The existence of fiat currencies has long been cited as one of the major contributing factors to the challenges facing contemporary economies, and the current monetary system is not only a key source of exorable increases in interest rates but also a principal cause of inflation and decline in the value of money in many countries. The editors argue that an Islamic monetary system, with its specific money concepts, interest-free financial institutions, and monetary policy embedded in real growth, provides a solution to this conundrum. Contributions from many world-renowned experts consider a wide array of topics, ranging from the theoretical concepts of money and banking in conventional and Islamic economics to the historical journey of money from precious metals to plastic money and digital currency today. The book outlines the problems that sprout from interest-based banking and multiple debt structures. It then mirrors the Islamic concepts of money as well as idiosyncrasies of its monetary policy. Supported with meticulous research and empirical evidence, the book demonstrates the efficacy of Islamic monetary system in delivering real growth along with equitable distribution of wealth and prosperity in the economy. It additionally acquaints the readers with juristic debates about money and monetary policy. This is essential reading for both students and researchers in Islamic economics, banking, and finance, expertly promoting a fair and just economic system that emerges as a result of interest-free banking and monetary policy based on Islamic principles.

Defending Muḥammad in Modernity

by SherAli Tareen

In this groundbreaking study, SherAli Tareen presents the most comprehensive and theoretically engaged work to date on what is arguably the most long-running, complex, and contentious dispute in modern Islam: the Barelvī-Deobandī polemic. The Barelvī and Deobandī groups are two normative orientations/reform movements with beginnings in colonial South Asia. Almost two hundred years separate the beginnings of this polemic from the present. Its specter, however, continues to haunt the religious sensibilities of postcolonial South Asian Muslims in profound ways, both in the region and in diaspora communities around the world. Defending Muḥammad in Modernity challenges the commonplace tendency to view such moments of intra-Muslim contest through the prism of problematic yet powerful liberal secular binaries like legal/mystical, moderate/extremist, and reformist/traditionalist. Tareen argues that the Barelvī-Deobandī polemic was instead animated by what he calls “competing political theologies” that articulated—during a moment in Indian Muslim history marked by the loss and crisis of political sovereignty—contrasting visions of the normative relationship between divine sovereignty, prophetic charisma, and the practice of everyday life. Based on the close reading of previously unexplored print and manuscript sources in Arabic, Persian, and Urdu spanning the late eighteenth and the entirety of the nineteenth century, this book intervenes in and integrates the often-disparate fields of religious studies, Islamic studies, South Asian studies, critical secularism studies, and political theology.

Legal Maxims in Islamic Law - Concept, History and Application of Axioms of Juristic Accumulation

by Necmettin Kızılkaya

The historical development and functions of legal maxims have not been studied within their context in contemporary scholarship. Especially in studies which examine legal maxims as a genre, this is mostly done in a bibliographical and descriptive manner. This leaves the question of why this genre has emerged in Islamic law. This study examines the legal maxims in terms of conceptual and historical development and their application. It analyses the subject from a viewpoint of cause-and-effect rather than examining it in a descriptive manner. Both handwritten manuscripts and printed legal maxims titles have been used for writing this book and the subjects are mostly examined based on primary sources.
