Strategies for Dealing with Economic Sanctions From the Perspective of the Qur'an

  • Dr. Masoudi. Asghar, Abdul Haq Habibi Salehi


Economy is the foundation of the human and Islamic society, and any threat to the economy of the people or society will create disorder and result in the collapse of the social system, because the destruction of the economy is the means of destruction the political system and thus the destruction of nations and countries politically and internationally.

Sanctions are an effective tool for dominating countries and an effective weapon in the area of civilian combat. Economic siege and economic sanctions are the most obvious types of sanctions in human history and have always been one of the strategies by powerful countries. Arrogant and colonialist powers use this powerful policy tool to bring one or more countries to their knees.

In this descriptive and analytical study, we present eleven practical cases as scientific and practical solutions to combat economic sanctions from the perspective of the Holy Quran by analyzing the strategies of sanctions against Islamic nations and countries. As the book of human guidance, the Holy Quran mentions that the most important solution is to stand up and be fully prepared and pay attention to the inner strength against it. According to the Qur'an, if nations and countries have true faith and pay attention to economic infrastructure according to the Holy Qur'an, they will never be subject to sanctions and economic siege.
