The traditional models of entrepreneurship did not succeed in providing solutions to many business mal-practices and unethical social problems causing sufferings to mankind. In order to get rid of these situations, Islamic model of entrepreneurship has been developed. This model creates entrepreneurial skills among the prospective young people by means of motivation, entrepreneurship training and practical orientation. According to this model, efforts are made to impart Islamic knowledge and ideas to help create welfare-oriented, honest, efficient and morally sound entrepreneurs for the nation.
It is hoped that peoples’ basic need fulfillment and cherished dream to live in a peaceful and prosperous society will be properly ensured through Islamic approach to entrepreneurship. With this objective in view, Bangladesh Institute of Islamic Thought decided to publish a book on ‘Management: Islamic Perspective’ which is basically a compilation of articles.
There are eleven articles in this compilation which was read in a national seminar titled ‘Islamic Management’ organized by IIUC & WAMY and which was first in nature in this country.
We think such kind of publication was a long- felt necessity of the academic curricula of different universities. We hope that this book will serve the necessity of teachers, students and researchers of the Universities as well as Institutions at home and abroad.
