Islam urges people to allegorically and realistically construct the global world, seek to create means of provisions and earn living by legitimately working in different fields of professions, such as trade, agriculture and industry. The Prophet said, "None would taste much more palatable food than that which one has earned by working with one's own hands. Therefore, the Prophet of Allah, David used to eat from the earnings of his manual labor." Behaving as such would yield one profitable consequences provided he or she is committed to honesty, sincerity in transactions, fulfillment of wages with no delay in time, giving full measurements and refraining from deception, monopoly and usury.
A lecture in English indicates that the Islamic shariah is the code of law for the Islamic way of life which Allah, the Almighty, revealed and commanded mankind to follow. The Quran is the main basis of shariah. It states the principles while the Prophet's tradition provides details of their application. For example, the Quran says, "... establish prayer and pay zakah ..." but it does not describe how to do these things, unlike the Prophet's tradition which gives us the details.
