- Dear Jawaid, I searched and found your great posts about Private Ownership in Quran.
Do you improve some parts of Quranic System of Sustenance of Alama Parwez or you accept all parts of the book? (I think he reject all types of private ownership)
- Means of Production belong to Islamic State/Government or not?
Some other questions were arisen in my mind after reading Quranic System of Sustenance of Alama Parwez but your scholarly posts answered them:
"We are also able to pass what we ‘own’ onto out children when we are gone, since land and homes are the same as the wealth we can accumulate in our lifetimes and this is not a sin. What they do with it after us is a test for their characters; as we are tested with what we do."
"Does land ownership violate “Allah owns everything” so this cannot happen, and is it stealing from Allah or our fellow man? No. I stake a claim on new land, build a home, clear it, plough it, grow crops and feed myself and others; the bounties are shared. If I am told that I do not have a legal right to use the land, if it can be taken off me at any time then why should I invest my time and effort in making it flourish? Every nation has laws that define what is mine and yours; land, homes, the clothes [or lack of] on by back, should be given a legal standing or else how are we going to organise society and keep it harmonious?"
