Abstract

This article discusses poverty and its solution in Islamic teachings. Today, poverty is not only a problem to any one region or country, but it is an important and fundamental problem of the whole world. According to the report of the journal Global Issues, about more than three billion people lives on less than two and a half US dollars per day. The combined GDP of forty-one indebted countries with 560 million people in the world is less than the combined wealth of the seven richest people in the world. Out of two billion children in the world, one billion children are living in poverty. Children have no place to live. 27 crores people do not have access to medical facilities. Currently, there is enough food to meet the needs of nearly seven billion people on the planet, yet one in seven people go to bed hungry at night. Poverty is an undesirable thing in Sharia. This paper attempts to study the framework of Islamic solution to this fundamental problem.
