Right Livelihood & The Common Good (Kasb Tayyib wa-Maslaha ‘Ammah ): Three Classics From The Islamic Tradition - Special Edition Hardcover with Box Case
Translator with Introduction and Notes: Adi Setia & Nicholas Mahdi Lock (Translator)
This special volume is a re-issued edition of three previously published works in a single volume on the same theme of the proper manner of earning a livelihood as understood throughout the fifteen centuries of the Islamic Tradition. This book comprises three English translations classical Islamic Texts on the topic, namely: (i) Imam al-Shaybani's Kitab al-Kasb (Book of Earning a Livelihood), (ii) Imam al-Ghazali's Kitab Adab al-Kasb wal-Ma'ash (Book of Proprieties of Earning and Living), and (iii) Imam al-Lubudi's Kitab Fadl al-Iktisab (The Virtue of Working for a Living).
Perhaps this special volume will provide an authentic and authoritative Islamic input toward enriching debate on the notion of Right Livelihood in relation to the Common Good, for both Muslims and non-Muslims alike, and lead thereby to a global, civilizational Common Word for the Common Good in the domain of local, regional and international economic exchange.
