In Islam, the Public Benefits Fully from Energy Resources
Citizens face ever increasing utility bills, such as gas and electricity. And the rising costs have also crippled Pakistans industry and agriculture. Islam assigns energy resources as public property. Neither the state nor individuals can usurp its benefit for themselves. Instead Islam ensures that the entire public benefits from the wealth. RasulAllah ﷺ said, الْمُسْلِمُونَ شُرَكَاءُ فِي ثَلَاثٍ الْمَاءِ وَالْكَلَإِ وَالنَّارِ “The Muslims are partners in three things, waters, feeding pastures and fire” (Ahmad). So, the Khilafah will ensure that the public benefit from energy resources, providing cheap energy to fuel agriculture and industry and affordable domestic rates.
