In The first section of this volume, we read about the characteristics of Islamic law and their points of disagreement with Capitalism and Marxism in the areas of: Hunting. Restoring barren land, arrogating work tools, hiring laborers, faming and forestry on seized land or with arrogated seeds, poultry farming with arrogated eggs, the Islamic verdict on the laborers who mistakenly thinks he has a right to land seeds, eggs and also fields, shepherding, bailment of capital, money landing for unlawful profit, wages, partnership, etc..

We must take note that in all these fields we usually accompany the eminent author in searching and exploring some of the common and general laws which can be conformed into wider fields, It's this point that turns the discussion into a one hundred percent expert discussion and not a practical debate on jurisprudence for the public our author deals with and explains extensively about this point at the beginning of the book.

After concluding this expert and specific debate, the esteemed author begins a new discussion titled: (The Relationship of Religion and production.). Here we read about the characteristics and Islamic law differences in the areas of: Production Increase: Production aim: The Connection between production, distribution and delivery: The relationship of production and distribution and finally who is production for.

The last debate in the book, titled (Government Responsibility Towards Islamic Economics) explains exclusively the Islamic methods of guarantying the minimum amount of a person's livelihood and the method of increasing that minimum to a social balance and equality. Finally. He explains the government limits and power to remedy the economical problems.

At the end of the book there are also sixteen appendixes which have extended and sometimes detailed debates and usually here we read the expert and jurisprudence discussions on a higher level from the book. For example: a discussion on ownership decrees about land conquered by Islam. A debate on whether the laws on (Foreign) land also concerns barren land and the effect of stacking stones around and marking barren land etc.
