“Whereas in the Qur’an is often mentioned La’allakum tuflihun in many letters, which means luck which contains in it long-term luck in the form of the hereafter, and short-term luck in the form of a material world,” said Thuba Jazil in the introduction of Islamic Economic Studies on Construction Falah In Islamic Economy received Republika.co.id, Monday (6/11).

Followed by the concept above that is the concept of al-barakah. Barakah or often called a blessing merupakah expansion of benefits. “When the benefits can be felt by the individual, the blessings are extended with benefits that have implications for others. Effects that appear must be reflected by the spread of benefits to others, “he said.

Then followed by the concept of al-maslahah, a wider scope again. Maslahah interpreted the more general benefit that ensures the survival of society. “Broader meaning, maslahah is a form of state both material and non-material that can improve the position of human beings as the most noble creature,” he explained.

The highest concept is falah, which includes in the three elements of survival, freedom of desire, and strength and self-esteem. “These three elements are included in aspects of microeconomics and macroeconomics,” said Thuba Jazil bin Damanhuri.
