Socialism is the term used in many countries. This word has come from the word society. Some Muslims think that the Socialism is fundamentally the same as Islam. They say it is just another name of social justice. They have this opinion on the basis of the fact that: it stands for the responsibility of the state to provide the basic needs of citizens and so, they say, it can not be opposed to Islam.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS For me it was a great pleasure having opted for the topic: Socialism and Islam. I am very grateful to Sir Professor M.Nawab Khan for allowing me to choose this topic. I am also grateful to the sir for helping and guiding me regarding this topic. [...]

[...] UNITY OF GOD Islam believes in Unity of God to express itself in the unity of man while the slogan of Socialism is to banish God from the Heavens and the capitalists from the earth. xii HEAD OF ISLAMIC STATE The head of Islamic state is the vicegerent of God to enforce His laws and enjoys no prerogatives of a despotic monarch nor is he a dictator .Socialism is all powerful totalitarian state and the dictatorship of the proletariat. IMPLICATIONS OF ISLAMIC SOCIALISM PROPHIT (PBUH)'S ADDRESS people! [...]
