Description from the publisher:

Maqasid Al-Shari'ah ("higher intents and purposes of Islamic Law") have been either directly stated in the Qur'an and the Sunnah or inferred from these by a number of scholars. Dr Chapra explores the Islamic vision of development in relation to Maqasid al Shari'ah maintaining that Islam has emphasised all the ingredients of human-wellbeing, including the human self, faith, intellect, posterity, as well as wealth, for society to flourish. For the Muslim world to focus on economic development only may in the short term results in relatively higher rates of growth but in the long run will lead to a rise in inequities, family disintegration, juvenile delinquency, crime and social unrest.
