Islamic jurisprudence contains rules and regulations which indicate the human bliss plan for a blissful life not only in the hereafter and the life after death but also as a bliss provider in this world. Since the issue related to production, distribution and consumption, if not considered as the first priority, is at least among the most important issues which should not be overlooked and neglected in a comprehensive plan, it has naturally received great attention in the comprehensive plan of Islam for the human life. The approach of religion towards this issue is different from the approach of the humankind. The human has addressed this issue based on a materialistic viewpoint and a one-dimensional look at human whose animal dimension only is viewed, but the viewpoint of Islam is a view which is based on both the materialistic and spiritual dimensions, and as a result the viewpoint of Islam is different from the view taken through the lens of the western culture, and this difference is effective in all parts.
