@southpawCP It saddens me that we live in a society based off of individualistic minded elites who's only worry about keeping and sustaining their wealth through funding wars instead of trying to bring the world together by donating barely a quarter of the money it takes to fund a war to end world poverty
So true :( Subhanna'Allah, after taking an Islamic Economics course at IOU and researching more about it elsewhere, you see how Islamic Economics could really help so much in terms of poverty. It's a good economic system! If only people learned about it and implemented it. One example of the cause behind poverty is interest/riba/usury where the rich are taking from the poor. This is why taking interest is a MAJOR sin in Islam. May Allah (azza wa jal) protect us from this.
