Abstract

The sharia (Islamic) activity has seen a rapid development, not only
in its impact on growth in the international community, but also in the history
and development of Islamic Law, which is part of The Living Law. Therefore,
prompt actions are needed to oversee the growth using the concept, theory,
laws and regulations, which are part of the Islamic Economic Law and being
part of the National Legal System. One of the legal system principles is the
concept of justice that constitutes the supreme goal of the Law, and the Quran
promotes fairness and forbids partiality in any transactions.
This paper emphasizes the importance of justice which is the goal of law and
in the qur’an, justice matters are mentioned in various dimensions. Meanwhile,
the concept of justice in the economy is defined as social justice or al mashlahah.
Defining Al Mashlahah as social justice in economic dimensions justifies that
God’s purposes to reveal various rules including rules implementing economic
activities is to achieve justice for all parties. Islam puts Mashlahah as the central
idea of maqashid ash shari’a as the justice philosophy in the Islamic perspective
is a universal and comprehensive justice. If the ultimate goal in establishing
various economic policies is to maintain consciousness of justice then the
decision makers should always institute justice for all as the basic policy in
implementing al maslahah in economic activities especially in Indonesia.
