    Islam provides a basis and guideline for living one's life. Within this, there is a very detailed concept of ethical and social behavior which allows us to deduce that the concept of social responsibility automatically has a role in Islam. This is a critical point that must be firstly understood, as the role of moral ethics has been underpinned in Islam for over 1400 years, whilst the concept of CSR remains relatively new for businesses today. The scope of this audiobook is to briefly outline some of the major aspects of Islam which give consideration for businesses.

    The scarcity of studies on waqf may arise from the lack of data and the lack of transparency in the economic and political structure of the many Islamic countries. A waqf can be used not only to provide immediate necessities to the poor, but also to create or strengthen business support institutions that can lower the cost of doing business for the poor. A waqf can also be used to support and build infrastructure institutions that can improve corporate governance and reduce the cost of doing business.
