The Holy Prophet SA spread the message of Islam by teaching monotheism, ethics, and religious law. Since ethics is a means for achieving monotheism, Prophet Muhammad SA placed significant emphasis on morality and character building.

In part two, the author discusses ethical management of the economy in the Islamic state. Prophet Muhammad SA sought various ways of solving the economic difficulties of the Muslims by maintaining fair distribution of property and wealth through sources of income for Muslims such as zakat (legal charity), spoils of war, khums (the Islamic tax), and tribute.

Unwan Basri’s ardent love for Imam Ja’far al- Sadiq as well as his eagerness to gain from intellectual gatherings and courses motivated him to benefit from the Imam’s knowledge. In a one-on-one meeting with Basri, Imam Ja’far Sadiq spoke to him about the reality of true servitude along with its practical instructions.

This article presents this hadith and elucidates the relation between understanding and fearing God, the relation between understanding and (sulook) wayfaring towards God, the sources of insight (ma’rifa), and the reality of servitude.
