All man-made systems – Capitalism, Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Zionism, etc. – are doomed to fail as they’re incapable of addressing human’s needs. This is due to the fact that human beings are limited and incapable of formulating solutions that will address all problems. Instead, the solutions that emanate from such system breed more problems. For example, the ‘freedom’ of capitalism has caused a significant amount of poverty. This necessitated the creation of welfare. However, with welfare came the issue of fraud, which necessitated stringent laws as to who gets money and who doesn’t. This in turn blocks needy families from actually satifying their basics needs. And the problem goes on and on.
Islamic laws are revealed by the Creator, Allah, and therefore, has solutions to all of humanity’s problems. That’s since, Allah created human being, the basic needs, the Earth, the universe, and all that’s in existence. Allah is absolutely capable of determining the proper solutions that will satisfy human needs. However, when discussing Islam as a solution for humanity’s problems, it’s crucial that such discussions are based on following the ‘truth’ and not seeking the ‘benefits’. The benefits of the Islamic system are mere by-products of obeying Allah. The real value of Islam is the ability to gain Allah’s pleasure. This must be the first and foremost idea of solving humanity’s problems.
