n African Journal of Business and Economic Research - What constitutes 'business ethics' in Islam?

The paper is a modest attempt at examining Islamic ethics in business with a view to identifying the possibilities and constraints in applying such ethical provisions in a contemporary economic setting. Content analysis has been utilized in the course of the research, and the work reveals that Islamic ethics, though widely acclaimed to be divinely ordained, seem unable to thrive in the face of the prevailing global economic system. The dearth of relevant literature and public disenchantment with the subject among others constitute the limitations of the research work.

The paper is of importance to scholars, policymakers, economic analysts, and the general public as it will serve as a tool for further intellectual/social inquiry.
