There are some interesting aspects of Muslim economics including a prohibition against charging interest on bonds. In most societies, one can purchase a bond and receive a certain amount of interest since others are using your money. Members of the Islamic Research Academy of al-Azhar college and its affiliated institutes argue that a good Muslim can not issue bonds and offer interest for the use of another’s money. According to a spokesperson, “it is not compliant with Sharia rules and threatens the state sovereignty.”
I await some comment by Republican conservatives about the Socialist or Communist Muslim religious folk who want to allow money to get in the way of capitalists making money. This aspect of Sharia law is wonderful. Unfortunately, in modern economies, money rules, not religion.
