Maqasid Al-Shariah (higher intents and purposes of Islamic Law) have been either directly stated in the Quran and the Sunnah or inferred from these by a number of scholars. Dr Chapra explores the Islamic vision of development in relation to Maqasid Al-Shariah maintaining that Islam has emphasised all the ingredients of human-wellbeing . For the Muslim world to focus on economic development only may in the short term results in relatively higher rates of growth but in the long run will lead to a rise in inequities, family disintegration, juvenile delinquency, crime and social unrest.
