The religion of Islam is a complete code of life in which rules and regulations have been laid down on all aspects of human life. Just as Islam has explained all the political, social, educational, and even individual and collective matters of human society, it has also given guidance about the economy from a particular aspect. On the one side, Islam has laid down the complete rules and regulations of the economy and has also set the limits of acquisition of wealth and has also explained the difference between Lawful (halal) and unlawful (haram) earnings and has emphasized that in any case there is no place for haram in Islam. Whether it is in the form of usury, embezzlement of one's wealth or in any case through monopoly, the purpose is to make halal earnings lawful. All are forbidden in the same way and are punished in the form of usury, haram eating, embezzlement, and any kind of financial corruption.

On the other hand, Islam has commanded the wealthy to spend on the way of Almighty Allah and forbids the accumulation of wealth, but Islam allows to keep private property against socialism which doesn’t allow private property or capitalism, it is only the accumulation of wealth. In this article, we will try to explain some of the economic principles of Islam and the Qur'anic concept of almsgiving in the light of Islamic texts. We will present it together so that it can become a holistic outline of an Islamic economic point of view and refer to Islamic literature for its detailed interpretation and details.

Key words: lawful, unlawful, Quranic concept, rules and regulations, Islamic economy, Islamic literature.
