With the western capitalist system on its knees partly as a result of the "greed is good" culture Muhammad Ali Hashim the CEO of Malaysia's Johor Corporation has made a timely plea for Muslim Firms to begin a "Business Jihad" based on the Islamic Principle of Corporate Waqf.
While I agree with the business jihad concept I'm cautious about the need for Muslim firms needing to be fully established into the current economic mainstream as distinct from establishing a credible Islamic economic system based on the Sharia like Islamic finance.
LM completely agrees that Muslim firms - many of whom are small family units need to diversify and expand like Japan however, I would like the current fragile and divisive western corporate system to move towards the Muslim futurist rather than Muslims over leveraging themselves on a false system based on credit, debt and inequality.
London Muslim with a left of center political agenda but dont let that put you off.
I write about issues the mainstream Murdoch agenda ignores and more than happy to also take on the tiny minority of vociferous fruitcakes in my own community.
In addition I'm a long suffering supporter of QPR. So, a Muslim with a sense of humour
