I found this interesting. This was a poll done by aljazeera.net The question is ” What is the best economical system?” and you can see that around 88% preferred the islamic economical system while 6% preferred the communism and 5% the capitalism.
I found this interesting that even though we are on a low level economically, people still believe in Islamic economical system. And i hope non-Arabs will see this, because i think they will be surprised that even they r superior economically, people don’t like their system that much.

i do not want to sound like a jerk, but this information is biased because the sample is not random, people who visit the jazeera website are not gonna vote for other systems.
I second Malik for what he says, that is to start with!
2nd, actually non of these are really experts in economy! So who cares about what they think!
3rd, Islam does not have a constant economical system (that is an advantage for sure) but it had set the frame that the economy can operate within! So a person who knows these rules very well (i.e. Prof Sharee3a) can come up with plenty of economical systems that are based on Islamic rules (which are very few rules, and again these is a very good thing that few things are ruled and the others are free for the people to decide on it).
4th, Islam should be applied as a whole system, if u were not a Muslim, u are not likely going to give poor people zakah (they might give taxes because they will see projects being done with these money, but to take money from him to give it to needy people is very hard and unacceptable for him)
5th, many banks in Europe are starting to adopt the so called Islamic banking for two reasons:
1- They are more profitable and advantageous for the bank with very little risks. these banks are usually harder for the customers to reach their demands (harder in procedures and requirements)
2- True Muslims will take these hardships just to avoid the Haram interests.
So they really keep bothering me whem they say ISLAMIC BANKING IS THE BEST (for banks yea for sure)
well, about the sample is not random, it is random among arabs and that’s what i wanted to show. It is true not all the world visit aljazeera, but Arabs do and not just the true muslim ones, so the poll shows opinion or arabs.
even though they r not expert i still care about their opinion, because i am not rying to prove that it is the best economical system. I am just trying to show that even when the western economical system is superior, there are alot of people who prefer the islamic on it. think about it from a western point of view. Malik u can try that, ask people around you whether they think that arabs will like the western economical system more or not. I didn’t actually try it, but i imagine people here will be amazed from uch a poll, then they will say “they are stupid”. that’s the reaction i expect from people seeing the poll
once while driving back from dear Saltus with my dad , we were listening to a radio show on BBC arabia about the same subject ; which economic system is better ? . and they had 2 callers to join and snap on eachother : one from Kuwait but clearly either palestinian or jordanian who supported Liberal system , and another from saudia arabia supporting ofcourse the islamic system.
now this should have been a really cool argument to listen to if it werent for the morbidly ignorant saudi guy who kept on and on that islamic systems are the best and its the solution to everything WITHOUT saying anything else, and it took him 2 minutes to come up with a Semi fully sentence for that matter , while the other guy was clearly more educated and his arguments were powerful and convincing.
what im trying to say that most of the people that voted islamic systems dont have a clue why its the better system and just voted that on pure brainwashing if u will- yes i said it!- and would most likely stutter if u ask them why.
yea exactly Xzeer! if they really believe in the islamic system then why they do not form a party that support it?!
Do u remember that a man who believes in a any faith just because his father and ancestors believed in it is a stupid guy?!
Anyways, these guys like our Saudi brother that Xzeer wrote about are giving Islam a bad name!
