Abstract:     
Islam is not only a way of worship; but also, an entire legal, economic, social, political, and commercial system. Hence, it affects every day behavior of its followers including business transactions. Also, Islamic law, almost, dominates most of the Muslim countries’ internal legal systems. Considering how Islamic business ethics affect corporate social responsibility can be useful to multinational corporations making their investment decisions in Muslim countries. This article discusses the general framework governing business ethics in Islamic law, giving perspective to labor standards.
