Islamic management is the interpretation of management practices as explicated in Islamic practices. The recent growth and interest in Islamic finance has led to researchers contemplating whether Islam offers an explanation with reference to various other areas in management studies. This book offers the Islamic perspectives on business ethics, marketing, leadership, and human resource management and explains to readers the tangible need of reading Islamic management. In order to deliberate on any of the aforementioned topics the holy book, holy prophet, and other reliable scriptures are taken into account. This gives the reader a clear picture of how a given thought is originating and at the same time makes the book an authentic read. For teachers, the book offers an easy explanatory text with models, exercises and examples, discussion questions, and study questions. For researchers references for extra readings are included. A geocentric manager can benefit from the text alike whilst reading with the aim of understanding management practices from an Islamic perspective.
