Abstract

This paper seeks to report and analyse the economic thought of Ibn al-Qayyim, a great thinker of Islam. He discussed mainly the problems of price control, market mechanism, supervision of economic activities (al-hisbah), riches and poverty, interest and zakah, at different places in his numerous works. The main considerations before him were realisation of welfare, social interest, establishment of justice and elimination of exploitation and hardship from economic life.
