The Book of The Proprieties of Earning and Living (Kitab Adab al-Kasb wa-al-Ma’ash) - Hardcover

Author: Al-Imam Abu Hamid Muhammad ibn Muhammad ibn Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Tusi al-Shafi’i al-Ghazali / Adi Setia (Translator)
Year: 2013
Pages: 187
Weight: 375g

This book is the first complete translation into English of Imām al-Ghazālī’s important Kitāb Ādāb al-Kasb wa al-Ma‘āsh, which constitutes Book Three of the Quarter on the Norms of Daily Life from his celebrated magnum opus Iḥyā’ ‘Ulūm al-Dīn (The revivification of the Sciences of Religion). It is a significant work in what we may call the kasb ethico-juristic genre in classical Islamīc economic thought, providing valuable insights into the socio-axiological vision underpinning commercial transactions and economic activities in Islām. The translator has also introduced and lightly annotated the text, and pointed out the deep relevance of this work for our current rethinking and redefining of the science of economics in terms of its ends (viz., provisioning for livelihood = infāq) rather than its means (viz., allocation of resources), and thereby reviving a true economy of sustainable livelihoods (ma‘āyish) for the common good (al-maṣlahaḥ al-‘āmmah). An appendix at the end of the translation briefly elucidates in a reflective manner this revival of a common-good or gift economics, leading to a succinct redefinition of economics as “the science of earning and provisioning” (‘ilm al-iktisāb wa al-infāq)
