When some people bribe to easily gain what they want, the others who avoid giving bribes for any reason will face many difficulties to obtain what they are entitled to. Also, the bribe receivers will not fulfil what they are required to do by law unless they are bribed. So, if bribery spreads among people, especially government officials, in a society, it will definitely lead to an increase of corruption within the community [ii]. Profiteering and defrauding One of the great sins in Islam is cheating in selling things, which could be of two kinds; selling something at a higher price than its real value, especially when there is a shortage of that product in the market, and also selling short measures to consumers [iii]. The loss of public trust and financial corruption are among the most devastating results of this
Money is a basic need in our lives to purchase our everyday necessitates. Having a lot of money could be used to purchase fancy and expensive goods, but the satisfaction would only be limited. Furthermore, money cannot buy you the emotions you get from love and affection. Money is desired by everyone, but it can’t buy you everything, for example: general knowledge or a deceased loved one and the memories made with them. Happiness is not determined by what your bank account could afford, it is simply appreciating the small things life brings you.
The most common choice was to up-sell customers by adding additional items to the transaction, or attempt to cross sell them into a different choice all together. While the promotion was given the designation of “at participating locations” being a non-participatory franchise in company promotions can also result in potentially devastating consequences within public opinion and loss of consumer confidence in the brand. It should be noted, that most of the non-participatory locations of these promotions are locations within larger areas of commerce (i.e. Airports, Shopping Malls, Sports Events etc.). This left some franchises in the position of having to just accept the loss and try to continue maintain revenues through other streams within the
It has weakened the values and ethics of the society which had a strong hold so far. Religion lost its ground, with the consideration of God as the ‘noblest superstition’, everything became permissible reflecting the notion of Dostoevsky who said: ‘If God is dead, everything is permissible’. In the present day world, business, technology and industry became the dominant institutions substituting the institutions of family, religion and tradition. The main concern is earning profits and attaining pleasure, even States and governments started to function mostly on the economic interests of individuals and concerned state. The evaluation of an individual in society is based on his wealth and position rather than behaviour and character.
With the decreasing influence of Christianity in Western world and the proliferation of other religions such as Islam and Hinduism in the West, opposition to the traditional Christian view and those who hold to it will continue to grow. In contemporary society, religious pluralism presents a range of complex challenges to religious groups and communities. In a plural situation, they are faced with the need to compete for social and communal support, such as members, financial contributions, legitimacy, and political influence. Religious groups have to decide on the ways in which they want to approach and relate to members of other groups—whether they opt for dialogue, mission, confrontation or indifference. They have to find ways of addressing internal pluralism, democratic pressures, and individualism.
Paul is addressing those looking for wealth and riches and gain by any means and some of those were false teachers not teaching with the right motives. We do have to understand that to be rich then is what we would call middle class today. When you desire riches it will cloud your judgment and draw you to a point of no return. Verse 10 Paul here again uses a proverb that the readers would have been very familiar with about loving money causing all kinds of evil. Stay devoted to Christ and you will remain free from the stress of trying to gain more and more.
In a quote stated in the book,”The more stitches, the less riches..." (52).People identify themselves by what they own, rather than by something less superficial. What you own ends up owning you in a sense. Consumerism is due to the perpetuated idea that you cannot be happy unless you surround yourself with things.They are taught to never question and constantly consume.Many people in society today depend highly on money as a driving force. They would much rather spend a Sunday in the mall, than a Sunday in church. Consumerism has got the best of people today in that many place purchasing goods above religion, family, and education.
These characters have selfish purposes for going on the pilgrimage, and they do not follow the duties of their religious positions. Because they are wealthy and, in most cases, learned, these four pilgrims believe that they can take advantage of laymen. They use their language skills to manipulate others and to usurp monetary possessions. They show no reverence for their religious orders, and they mislead their brethren for the sake of ill-gotten gain. Thus, Chaucer utilizes the Prioress, the Monk, the Friar, and the Pardoner to show how the wealthy and learned clergy is corrupted by the avarice of its members.
The Western view of Islam with opposition of rising globalisation is that Islam is a religion of oppression, as many believes it pushes away the values that come from globalisation, especially in the aspect of culture globalisation, such as feminist and liberal values. Islam
