Maq¥|id al-SharÏ¢ah
(higher intents and purposes of Islamic Law) have beeneither directly stated in the Qur’an and the Sunnah or inferred from thesebyanumberofscholars.Alloftheseaddresstheraisond’êtreoftheShari¢ahwhich, as recognized by almost all the jurists, is to serve the interests of allhuman beings and to save them from harm. In this paper Dr. Chapraexplores the Islamic vision of development in relation to
maq¥|id al-sharÏ¢ah
maintaining that Islam has emphasized
all 
the ingredients of human well-being, including the human self, faith, intellect, posterity, as well as wealth,for society to flourish. For the Muslim world, stresses Dr. Chapra, to focuson economic development only may in the short term result in relativelyhigher rates of growth but in the long run will lead to a rise in inequities,family disintegration, juvenile delinquency, crime, and social unrest.
