SHARIAH PROVIDING SUSTAINABLE JUSTICE TO ALL. 

OTHER SYSTEM or LAW IS INJUSTICE


SUMMARY OF KEY NOTE ADDRESS at The 1st International Conference on Shariah and Social Studies [BICoShs] organised by State Islamic University Imam Bongol , Padang Indonesia



Shariah is defined as commandement of God [Allah] with its primary sources from Al Quran and Sunnah [practises of Prophet Muhammad - peace be upon him] and the secondary source known as  Fatwa [decision of Islamic council of learned Islamic scholars]. in  all aspects of life, which include 3 main aspects namely [1] Aqidah [ Faith in Allah]. [2] Aklak [ Behaviours or characters as being practised by Prophet Muhammad  -peace be upon him], and [3] Laws and Regulations relating to Ibadat [Worshiping to Allah], Munakahat [ Family or Marriages]. Muamalat [ Commerce ] and Jinayat [ Criminal], with the ultimate objectives of achieving [Maqasid Al Shariah] : [i] Protection of Religion [ii] Protection of Human Life [iii] Protection of Human Intellect [iv] Protection of Human Offspring , and [v] Protection of Wealth & Resources.

When we are talking about Justice, Shariah is a prerequisite in all human activities in order to attain justice.  We need to redefine Justice. Justice as defined by western world as 'the proper administration of law: the fair and equitable treatment of all individuals under the law'.

.I would like to redefine JUSTICE as follow:

 " The proper administration of the law in accordance to Shariah: the fair and equitable treatment of all individuals under this Shariah Law [based on Quran, Sunnah and Council of Scholars] with the objectives of achieving Maqasid Al Shariah  which include Protections of [1] Islam [2] Human Life [3] Human Intellect [4] Human Offspring, and [5]Wealth & Resources"

In other word we may conclude that any kind of system which is not in conformation with Shariah is INJUSTICE.

Shariah is from God [Allah ] and it is meant for all mankind and thus it will provide Sustainable Justice to all. Any social and economic developments will result in injustice to mankind, if they are not in accordance with Shariah.

ISLAMIC ECONOMIC IS THE BEST SOLUTION THAN GREEN ECONOMIC. ISLAMIC ENTREPRENEURS HAVING HEAVY RESPONSIBILITIES TO SAVE THE WORLD FROM GRAVE CATASTROPHE. 


SUMMARY OF THE KAYNOTE ADDRESS:  Keynote address at the International Conference on Green Entrepreneurship & Innovation for Sustainable Development  ICGEISD 2017 At University Muhammadyiah Gresik Indonesia on 28th August 2017.


Green Economy is addressing the environmental issue, but Islamic economic addressing both environmental and human issues. Thus Islamic Economy is the best option..

Islamic Entrepreneurs play important role to protect the world from grave catastrophes, to fulfill the objectives [Maqasid al Shariah] of Islam namely. [1] Protection of Religion, [2] Protection of Human Life, [3] Protection of Human Intellect, [4] Protection of Human Offspring, and lastly [5] Protection of Wealth and resources 

The Muslim Nations should be united both economically and politically by establishing Muslim Economic Community towards creating Muslim Union, similar to that of EEC and EU. The Muslim Malay Nations such as Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia should lead the formation of MEU. The Malay nations consisting of over 400 millions population and over 90% are Muslims have georraphical, culutural and religious advantanges.

Islamic Universities should give special emphasis in developing future Islamic Leaders and Islamic Entrepreneurs, to equip them with knowledge and skills in the field of Islamic Management and the whole spectrum of Islamic Economics.

 ABSTRACT

 Islamic tourism can be seen from a different perspective as compared to the conventional tourism such as economic, cultural and religious perspectives. Travelling and exploring for the purpose of seeking knowledge, enriching one’s experience and improve one’s character has been encouraged by Islam. The development of Islamic tourism give rise to the various business components within the tourism industry which include tour operators, hotels, airlines and restaurants to restructure their products and services towards halal or shariah compliance or Muslim friendly to meet the demand of the growing market segment. According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), international tourism continued its momentum with a 5% growth, or an additional 52 million international tourists, recorded a world total of 1.087 billion arrivals in 2013. The management of tourism businesses should look beyond profit and should adopt good governance from the Islamic perspectives to meet the demand of the Muslim travelers. This paper attempts to examine the management strategy of current tourism business such as hotels and tour operators in the light of their moving towards Maqasid al-Syariah or, in other words, ‘the spirit of the Islamic Syariat’. Muslim scholars are of the opinion that the ultimate objectives [maqasid al-Syariah] which are a necessity [al-daruriyyah] for mankind to be able to live peacefully in this world, according to al-Quran and al-Sunnah, include five main areas – [1] protection of life, [2] protection of al-Din [Islam], [3] protection of human generation, [4] protection of intellect, and, lastly, [5] protection of wealth or resources. From a review of the related literature, little is mentioned or discussed about tourism businesses working towards achieving these ultimate objectives or Maqasid al-Syariah.

THE BEST MANAGEMENT MODEL FOR MANAGING WAQF INSTITUTION FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

By SHAYA'A OTHMAN

Comparing several Waqf Institutions in Turkey and Malaysia,  waqf institutions in Turkey are well structured and such institutions having a long history of success since the great era of Ottoman Empire. The spectrum of Waqf activities during Ottoman Empire included all activities of life as shown in the following diagram.



Since the period of Ottoman Empire and till today, Turkish society believed in the concepts of putting good work and making favors for others as well. They are competing with one another in charity. This practises have been instrumental in the development of waqf culture and thus creating many Waqf Institutions.





Until today Waqf Institutions in Turkey focus  mainly in development of Educations such as establishing Universities and schools.




It is observed that the success of Waqf Institutions in Turkey is based on 5 Critical Success Factors namely [1] Productive [2] Accumulative [3] Sustainable [4] Financially Self-sufficient , and [5] Administratively Self-sufficient

ISLAMIC FINANCE AND OPPORTUNITIES PROJECTED TILL 2020



ENGLISH: Interest or 'riba' is the biggest sin in Islam. As mentioned in the Holy Quran, Chapter 2, Verse 279, it is the only sinful act that Allah declares war. Today Islamic Finance is only 1% of World Total Financial Asset Management. It means that 99% of Financial Asset is locked in Interest or 'riba'. In other word significant number of mankind including Muslims indulging in sinful act of 'riba'. It is a big responsibility for every Muslim to propagate Islamic Finance in any form to the Muslims and mankind at large.


MALAY : Riba adalah merupakan satu dosa yang amat besar. Sepertimana yang dinyatakan di dalam Al Quran Surah 2 Ayat 279, bahawad riba merupakan dosa yang Allah istihar perang pada mereka yang mengamalkannya. Hari ini Pengurusan Aset Kewangan Islam merupakan 1% sahaja dari jumlah Pengurusan Aset Kewangan Dunia. Ini bermakna sebilangan besar manusia termasuk Umat Islam mengamalkan riba bergelumang dengan dosa besar ini. Adalah menjadi satu kewajiban besar kepada setiap individu Muslim memberi dan membantu dalam apa bentuk pun untuk memberi kesedaran dan melaksanakan Kewangan Islam kepada Umat Islam dan manusia keseluruhannya.
