Tens of thousands of people gathered in Istanbul’s Taksim Square yesterday to mark International Workers’ Day in a meeting organized by leftists unions and groups. Attendance were greater than expected, and worker and civil servant unions held three separate rallies in three provinces following a failure to agree on a joint declaration.

One interesting group that participated was the “Muslim Anti-Capitalists,” who came together at the historic Fatih Mosque to pray for workers killed in work-related accidents, before heading to Taksim Square. “Muslims gathered in front of this mosque 40 years ago to attack leftists who were stoning U.S. naval vessels anchored in the Bosphorus,” İhsan Eliaçık, a religious author known for his critiques of capitalism, said in a speech. “Today we are here to renounce their inheritance.”

Women wearing headscarves and hijab led the group on its way to the square. Meryem Ödül, one of the marchers, said she was there to support “my worker sisters and brothers who are forced to work under poor conditions.”

“As a Muslim socialist woman, I see barriers between the segments of Turkey’s society. I think our movement is an example to show that one can be both [Muslim and socialist]. Exclusion and separation is capitalists’ business,” Ödül said.

Another marcher, Adnan Kara, who was carrying a banner which read “Freedom to Slaves” written in Armenian, Turkish, Arabic and Kurdish, said the group has been meeting for the last three years to read the Quran together, and their movement evolved out of that. “We are not close to the Gülen movement, or the government or any leftist organizations… We only have faith in God, labor and freedom,” Kara told the Daily News. The group met up with the People’s Voice Party (HSP) and they became united along the way. “We are correcting a historical mistake today; this means normalization in our eyes,” HSP deputy leader Mehmet Bekaroğlu said.

The Confederation of Public Sector Trade Unions (KESK) and the Confederation of Revolutionary Workers’ Unions (DİSK) were the hosting organizations in Taksim Square, where the huge crowd could not fit. Environmentalists, feminists and gay right activists groups also were present.


Note :
Islam socialism, Socialism already exists in Islam , Islamic life style which is based upon community values that is close to an anti-capitalist life-style.

I would rather use the world welfare state. Islam is not against private ownership which in my opinion is the basis of socialism. From Islamic point of view it´s ok to get rich if it is your destiny.

 

Two characteristics in Islam are against capitalism:

 

1. Zakat (alms) which give the poorest members of the society a chance to consume.

2. Prohibition of riba (interest) which makes it impossible for people to take advantage of each other´s needy state.

There is an interesting verse [ayet] in Quran that is against gaining wealth without sharing it with others and not using their wealth justly. The term  "Kenz" which means "to hoard" is mentioned in that particular verse.

"O you who have believed, indeed many of the scholars and the monks devour the wealth of people unjustly and avert [them] from the way of Allah . And those who hoard gold and silver and spend it not in the way of Allah - give them tidings of a painful punishment.

The Day when it will be heated in the fire of Hell and seared therewith will be their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs, [it will be said], "This is what you hoarded for yourselves, so taste what you used to hoard."

Surat At-Tawbah 34-35

You are right. That´s an important point also.

 

The ordered minimum zakat is some 2,5 per cent of a person´s savings. But according to tradition Prophet Muhammad was always in a hurry to give away everything his household didn´t absolutely need. He hardly owned anything.

 

What goes to your own stomach is gone. What is used for charity is saved for the hereafter.

You summed it up with your words of wisdom Abla.

Zakat has two literal meanings 1. Purification

                                          2. Growth

--------------------------------------------

 The more you give your earthly possessions away the more you get purified and grown spiritually. Therefore tecnically there is no limit in giving.

One has two buckets ,one for this life, one for other life. By emptying your bucket wisely[by helping people in need] you are filling your bucket for other life.

But in practice , it is not an easy to empty the bucket [wealth].
