The above fact establishes that the Islamic economic system is well balanced and moderate it is neither opperssive and capitalistic like those of the western nations nor it is like those atheistic communists, who have declared all (other peoples) wealth as lawful for themselves, dishonoured the (real) owners of the wealth, enslaved them and subjugated other nations and passed orders against them, and declared lawful (Halaal) what is pronounced by Almighty Allaah as unlawful (Haraam). As it is proper for you to adopt the lawful means of earning (as enjoined by Sharee’ah), surely you are better entitled to earning those things through lawful means (according to Sharee’ah) which have been legalised by Allaah. Islaam also invites you towards brotherly feelings based on faith, to do good to others and to respect Muslims, for the sake of Allaah; it calls upon you to shun illwill, malice, vanity, misappropriation and similar other vices. Thus Allaah wants to keep clean every Muslim from all such evil acts as has been said by Him:

“And the believers, men and women are protecting friends one of another.” (9 : 71)

And Allaah, the Supreme, has also said:

“The believers are naught else than brothers.” (49 : 10)

The Prophet of Allaah () said: "A Muslim is naught else than a brother to another Muslim; he neither derogates him, nor commits excess on him." Thus a Muslim is brother of another Muslim, whose honouring is incumbent upon him and whose disrespect is forbidden. It is necessary to do justice to him and give him his due rights by all means the Sharee’ah of Allaah has declared the things as essential; and the Prophet of Allaah () has said: "The Muslims as a whole are like a wall and every Muslim strengthens it." And the Messenger of Allaah () further said: "A Muslim is a mirror for another Muslim."

Therefore '0' brother you are a mirror for your brother, and you are the brick of the wall which was founded on the brotherhood of faith. So fear Allaah, lest you neglect the right of your brother; do realize his rights, treat him justly, faithfully and truly. It is necessary for you to accept Islaam completely; do not act upon one thing, and leave the other. Guard against only accepting the belief and neglecting the deeds and morals; nor you may only adopt deeds and morals neglecting the belief. In short, we must adopt Islaam in its entirety, that is in belief, action, worship. Jihaad in social matters, politics and economics, in other words a perfect Muslim, as has been enjoined by Almighty Allaah.

“ ‘0’ you who believe ! Enter perfectly into Islaam and follow not the footsteps of Satan. Verily! he is to you a plain enemy .” (2 : 208)

One group of the learned men of the past has explained the meaning of the verse as to completely enter the fold of Islaam -- the perfect citedal of protection. Islaam has been described as peace and protection because it is the way to peace and safety, both in this world and the Hereafter. So Islaam invites you to salvation - Calls upon you to shed blood for the sake of true Jihaad (striving for the cause of Allaah) for the enforcement of divine justice and retribution. Islaam is faith of safety and protection, that is why Allaah the Exalted says:

“Enter into Islaam Perfectly.” (2 : 208)

Which means to enter the fold of Islaam completely in all sections. You should be careful not to adopt some and leave the rest, but adopt Islaam in frill

“And follow not the footsteps of devil.” (2 : 208)
