Abstract:
This thesis concerns the economic policies of the Prophet - with special reference to the alleviation of poverty. In Chapter 1, there is an examination of the principal terms in the Qur'=an: faq=ir, misk=in, da'if, mustad'if and ibn al-sabil. Chapter 2 investigates the problem of poverty in Mecca before the emigration. In Chapter 3 the Prophet's economic policies and their relation to the alleviation of poverty are examined. In the course of this Chapter the economic consequences of the raids made by the Prophet are discussed. Particular attention is given to khums, fay' and the prohibition of rib=a. There are special Chapters on zak=ah and jizyah and how these two forms of taxations came to be introduced. In an appendix there are several maps of Arabia and Medina to illustrate the Prophet's actions.
