Philosophy

Our business philosophy originates from the trade guidelines provided in Islamic theology such as :

  • Deal not unjustly, and you shall not be dealt with unjustly (Al Quran, 2:279)
  • God loves those who are fair and just(Al Quran, 49:9)
  • And give full measure when you measure, and weigh with a balance that is straight(Al Quran, 17:35)
  • But Allah has permitted trade and forbidden usury(Al Quran, 2:275)
  • O you who believe, fulfill your contracts(Al Quran, 5:1)
  • Allah shows mercy to a man who is kind when he sells, when he buys and when he makes a claim
    (Al-Bukhari)

We find many similarities between Islamic business values and contemporary philosophy of socially responsible businesses. For instance, workplace harassment, discrimination in hiring and promotion, employment benefits, layoffs, conflict of interest, quality control, misuse of business assets, environmental pollution, etc. are matters on which Islamic and western approaches are more or less similar. But Islam puts much more emphasis on their observance, emphasizing their practice to be a religious duty bound to be treated as sacred.
