Preface
In the Name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful
People have increasingly been, for quite some time, demanding to getthe series of “The Islamic School” out, and the dear readers have been in-sisting that I must issue a new series for them.I have been reluctant to respond to such requests due to my desire tofocus my efforts on finishing the second volume of 
Iqtisaduna
(“Our[Islamic] Economics”). The publication of this latter book has been thereason behind the increasing demand that I should issue a brief series ex-plaining and simplifying the book’s researches so that they may becomeaccessible and comprehensible by a larger number of readers.On this basis, I have written this series, taking special pains to make itsimple, avoiding the level of precision and depth which I retained whileresearching “Our Economics.” On numerous occasions, I have preferredto explain an idea rather than describing its precise form, since the latteris already available in our detailed books.While introducing this series to its readers, I shall first try to summar-ize its ideas for them and provide them with a table of contents whichought to help them comprehend it and follow its chapters.This series includes raising one question and the attempt to answer it.The question is: “Does an economic doctrine exist in Islam?”In this series, we shall gradually answer this question in the affirmat-ive. After we raise the question, we will be busy explaining it andeverything relevant to it. After that, we shall study the answer in thelight of our comprehension of Islam, supporting it with proofs and dis-cussing any objections to it.
