For any activity and for all purpose, Islamic Economic demands three main principles to be followed by an individual in his day-to-day affairs and problems. IJMA (Gathering), QYAS (Discussion) AMAL (Act).

Islam specifically considers distribution as economic problem.  It differ to application of capitalists & communists system for production.  Islam differentiates between basic needs and luxuries  It not accept the concept of effective scarcity of resources.

Principle of Economic Freedom within a Defined Limit

Islamic law is the source that that prohibits all such social and economic activities that differ to the teaching of Islam and the principles and values that are approved by Islam. Such social and economical activities fall under the categories of Riba, like holdings, monopoly, gambling and speculation

The state must protect and safeguard the public interest through the control on individual freedom in the illegal and non-permitted actions they involve due to which the economic activity of the community and society suffer.

Men have no right to possess unlimited wealth and desire to obtain wealth by any means and way he may choose of his like.  Right is given to every member of the society by appointing each one is a guardian of the public trust and the ownership is limited for the public welfare and in the betterment of mankind.

The Principle of Social Justice
Social justice has two prime principles

Principle of give-and-take responsibility  Principle of social balance Prohibits growth in differences to an extent that few live in extra luxury and rest are deprived of basic necessities of life and forced to live a life of misery, hunger, without shelter, illness and as neglected class of the society.

Tawhid (monotheism)

The accomplishment of man depends on the belief and obeying the teaching of Islam and bringing healthy and peaceful community by synchronizing between morality and the material characteristic of life.

Economical and social problems, which can be solved only through Ijithad, particularly issues in regard to which, no clear injunction is available in the Quran, or Sunnah.
