Abstract

After tracing the foundational basis of taxation from the Qur'an and early Islamic tradition, this paper studies the development and integration of tax policies within the moral framework of Islamic Law. It focuses on the role of jurists and scholars who sought to integrate and reconcile the Islamic values of taxation with changing economic and historical conditions and also touches upon attempts by modern Muslims to relate traditional values of taxation to contemporary economic life.
