Under the capitalist system, citizens face a great burden of taxation. Income tax eats into the peoples salaries, general sales tax makes buying essential food and medicine a burden whilst taxation on fuel and energy chokes industrial and agricultural production. Instead of providing agricultural facilities to the farmers, the government of Pakistan has implemented tax on pesticides and fertilizers, which has made it difficult for the common farmer to look to agriculture as a means of income. Islam is free of cruel taxes like GST, income tax and toll tax. RasulAllah ﷺ said, لَا يَدْخُلُ الْجَنَّةَ صَاحِبُ مَكْسٍ “The collector of taxes will not enter heaven” (Ahmad).
