Abstract:     
This valuable and absorbing book brings out facts not generally discussed in the field of economics. It presents complex ideas of Islamic Economics from the Quranic and Hadith perspective in a literary and lucid style. Sometimes novice Urdu reader is digressed, but the author’s scholarly artistic style keeps the reader engaged to the end. Gilani begins with factors of production, capital and Quran, labor and Quran, and world as a system of earning bread and butter, equal rights of men and women in the field of economics and then logically links these with prerequisites by mentioning just two words “guardian scholar” (Hafeez o Aleem). In fact, Prophet Hadhrat Yousaf introduced himself to the Egyptian King saying “I am Hafeez o Aleem, so appoint me as a custodian of your lands.” These two words are hardly found in the vocabulary of economic scholars.
