In Islam, the work ethic is defined by the Qur’an itself, which stresses the need for work and action by human beings. It is because of this emphasis on work that Islam is considered “the ideology of practice and the practice of ideology” and “a religion of action” (Mirakhor 1988). The Qur’an exalts work and raises it to the level of worship, and considers it as an inseparable dimension of faith itself. Conversely, it considers idleness—or the squandering of time in pursuit of unproductive and non-beneficial work—as the manifestation of lack of faith and of unbelief.

The emphasis on risk sharing is evident from one of the most important verses in the Qur’an with respect to economic relations (2:275). The verse states that: “. . they say that indeed an exchange transaction (bay’) is like a riba (interest-based) transaction.
