Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: “Indeed the merchants will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment with the wicked, except the one who has taqwa of Allah, who behaves charitably, and is truthful.” (Hasan, Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3/12/1210)
Typically, the business administration programs are designed to provide students with comprehensive knowledge about the basic functional areas of business and their interconnection, while also allowing for specialization in a particular area. However, this subject is often taught completely from a secular perspective. Consequently, students remain unaware of the rich legacy of the Islamic principles in the fields of accounting, management, finance, entrepreneurship and leadership.
