The cover story of Australia’sInstitute of Public Affairs magazine, IPA Review,is:
“Islam’s free market heritage”
written by Chris Berg and Andrew Kemp.
One of the groups that’s praised in that article is the Islamic Free Market Institute Foundation.
Among other things, this group claims that:
… the life of Prophet Muhammad provides a perfect example.
… The law of God, as enunciated in the Qur’an and exemplified in the life of the Prophet is supreme in all cases.
I wonder if Chris and Andrew have studied the Hadith in order to be clear about what this means exactly. I really think they should.
Islam is not a new religion, but a re-presentation of the same message and guidance that Allah revealed to all of His prophets.
What this means is that Jesus and Moses (and others) were all Muslims. It also means that Islam is the rightful owner/origin/source of both Christianity and Judaism.
The Islamic “Free Market”Institute Foundation also quotes this item by George Bernard Shaw:
I believe that if a man like him [Muhammad] were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed peace and happiness.
Oh, I get it! A free market dictator! Brilliant.
