Notwithstanding your last comment, if we agree the Quran is Divine Revelation then we should accept that it has some of the cures for some of our ills. If we do not see it working in ‘modern times’ then we should look at why, either our understanding of the Quran is wrong, or we need to look at what is wrong with the modern system; glittering on the surface as it is perceived by some but rotten underneath, and change it for the better.
Trump has lowered taxes for the rich, this has produced some new jobs, but he is borrowing trillions from the chinese to pay for it. One day someone will have to pay the loan back and that will hurt far more than they will have benefited from the cuts.
I am not first century islam, but first Quran.
