This book briefly surveys the evolution of the Western concept of development, recognizing the wider dimensions of human and economic development and the role of institutions and rules, which has moved toward the vision and the path of development envisaged in Islam, emphasizing human solidarity, belonging, wellbeing, sharing, concern for others, basic human entitlements, and modest living. The goal is to explain the basis and network of rules for achieving human and economic development as mandated by the Quran and operationalized by the Prophet in Islam. A reading of this book should confirm that in today's Muslim societies the core elements of the institutional structure that would designate a system as Islamic are, by and large, notable for their absence.
