The usuli objective studies paid a pioneer attention to the issue of wealth. They considered it among the great necessary principles, which were addressed by all divine religions. Other studies addressed the problem of poverty in the world and particularly in the Islamic world. This paper attempts to solve this problem through showing the objective dimension of the wealth principle and its role in the Islamic legislation. Wealth is looked upon as a means of life, not as an end. Furthermore, the issues of possession and dealing with wealth in the Islamic financial system, the Legislator’s objectives of wealth and the ways to actualize them, and some guidelines on reducing the poverty among Muslims are discussed. The study clarified that distinguishing means from ends and objective is an important matter for Muslims in order to deal with each of them in a right and acceptable manner. When wealth is utilized for purposes other than what it created for, the legislation interferes to rectify the situation. In the Islamic perspective, wealth belongs to Allah. Man is made as an heir. Thus, wealth is a trust given to its owners, and should not be misused or squandered. It should rather be returned to those to whom it is due. For this reason, possession is given double attributes. The state has instructed to reform the infrastructural deficit in its economic system. Moreover, it recommended Islamization of banks so they could play an active role in mobilizing a balanced and advanced economic activity. It is among the priorities of the state is to develop the individual and spontaneous welfare activities into a systematic and institutionalized action. It should also protect the intellectual freedom of the scientific authority and intelligentsia among the ummah so they could participate in upgrading Muslim’s life in all aspects.
