Dear brother Jawaid,

The Quran has all the ingredients to make the economy recover and prosper.

The world has seen it. Please recall the Mission Statement of the exalted Prophet. It was achieved during his lifetime.

THE NOBLEST MISSION STATEMENT EVER: At the outset of the call to the prophetic office, the exalted Muhammad announced the highest and the noblest possible Mission Statement ever, "We will establish a State wherein a beautiful young woman laden with jewelry will be able to travel alone from Yemen to Busra (in Syria, about 2000 miles). Yet, she will have no fear but the fear of Allah."

This meant that in the Muslim Empire, the life, honor and property of all citizens would be safe. It promised peace and rule of law in the society beginning with discipline in the hearts. The exalted Prophet achieved this lofty mission in his lifetime! Sall-Allahu-'Alaiyhe-Wasallam.

During that blessed era, people used to travel distances to find someone ready to accept charity from them. The inevitable answer used to be, "Brother, would you kindly accept some charity (Sadqah) from me?"

During the first Caliph Abu Bakr's reign, Hazrat Umar was the Chief Justice of the Islamic Empire. Not a single violent crime was brought to his court throughout those 2 and a 1/2 years!
