Abstract

Sustainable development is a common concept of the 21st century. However, the expected changes towards sustainable development are slow. We believe every change starts with changes in understanding of the subject matter. If sustainable development is the aim, it should start with changes in understanding. This paper aims to explain the necessary paradigm shift for sustainable development by the contribution of Islamic economics. While doing this, the reasons of paradigm shift, the content of such a paradigm shift, and the possible contributions of Islamic economics will be analyzed.
