The establishment of an Islamic society can itself remove many social and economic evils. Although differences between the poor and the rich generate a 'balanced economic society', they do not affect the glory of man. The departure of the Islamic economic agents from non-Islamic economic agents is due to the motivation behind economic decisions.

The degree of Aman matters in worship and economic decisions and leads to wage differential in the labour market.
