Poor ? What does that mean ? In my proposal that I linked the socio-economic system will ensure all citizens have equal and comfortable access to all basic and non-basic needs / resources in a simple manner. That should be all there is to it. Please re-read that proposal.




Hinduism, at least the non-original one, has even a god for wealth / money ( Kuber ) and a goddess for the same reason ( Lakshmi ). Hinduism is the most Capitalist culture in the world. Consequently, India has been so for the last 3000 years and this has led to such atrocities as suicide of 350,000+ Indian farmers just between 1995 and 2015. And people dying or suffering of hunger, curable ill health, indebtedness etc. Below are my threads about this topic :

Let us not jump to include Islam into such a traditional vile concept like Capitalism which causes injustice and artificial deprivation. Please re-read that section I quoted about that Islamic scholar from a 100 years ago. It is from an article by Pakistani journalist Nadeem Paracha about Socialist and Communis activism among Muslims since the early 1900s.



Indeed.



Well, it can be a further discussion in this thread that land should not be privately owned.



It may be decentralized but how is it different from the Capitalist Dollar, Euro, Riyal and Rupee ? Does it work out of the bounds of Capitalism in the world ? Please read my proposal on how a just and progressive economic system should be.
Islam has already given us the best model. period

No period. Yes, Islam has a very progressive socio-economic system and I have even this thread on the Islamic marriage law that is about the socio-economic rights and facilities given to Muslim women that don't exist in other religions traditionally and were absorbed into modern Western law just about 170 and more years ago ( read that thread and the consequent discussion there ) and that thread's OP is an article written by an Indian Christian woman who married an Indian Muslim under Islamic law because that gave her better socio-economic security in case of divorce. And I have made posts on Islamic inheritance law. But we have to evolve. In 20 years there will be settlements on Mars and there will need to be a socio-economic system there. What should that be ? Modern Communism is the natural successor of Islam and Islam is in a line of previous progressive ideas. Below is Google result for "Communism" :
Communism is a philosophical, social, political and economic ideology and movement whose ultimate goal is the establishment of a communist society, namely a socioeconomic order structured upon the ideas of common ownership of the means of production and the absence of social classes, money and the state. Wikipedia
What can be the objection of any sensible person to such humane and wonderful set of thoughts, especially a Muslim because Communism just extends Islam ?

You conveniently ignored the other part of my post.
You are indeed poor if you don't get the right amount of reward for your hardwork, talent or ability. Every society has its own standards of poverty.
And why someone who works less or is less talented should get the equal opportunity? Like any other ideology communism was no perfect ,it has some serious drawbacks which led to it's failure or it's no where to be seen today. Secondly it's not for every society and culture. It gained popularity in societies where attitudes of people were different and the opression of working class was extreme . No way in India, pakistan or Bangladesh communism will ever get popular.

Well true to some extent but the Islamic capitalism is very different than the evil western capitalism we see today. Only a justified percentage of profit is Islamic capitalism unlike the profit west charge today . Look at their healthcare industry,arms industry and university fee for foreign students. Not at all justified .
It is unfair to classify all of West as evil when it comes to economics, not all Western countries operate like the US. For example look at Sweden, Norway, Finland, Netherlands and Austria. All of these nations are capitalist nations but unlike the US they offer free healthcare and education, they provide world class public transport to their citizens unlike the US. They provide social housing to thier citizens and the list goes on.

True that.
The most appropriate word should be "US capitalism" which sees profit in everything ,in every misery and in every exploitation.
