The Quran is the primary source for the teachings and beliefs of Islam. While the community may change the social and economic policies inspired by Islamic values ??in order to meet the changing socio-economic needs of society, the basic principles of Islamic economics and the social system, however, must be preserved. It is expected that freely elected representatives to work together with the society to develop policies in support of economic and social stability, economic prosperity, public education, health care, economic fairness, of a fair distribution of income and a network social security. All Muslims physically and mentally skilled are required to work for their living, and those who have a sufficient level of wealth have an obligation to pay taxes that contribute to the financing of state welfare programs and other social benefits. Our illustration of the Islamic economic system is supported by many modern scholars of Islam and Islamic economics, however, does not agree completely with those offered by religious leaders and equipment related to a state authority.
