basically pious spending in the way of Allah. It has significant importance in Islamic economic
principles, with reference to redistribution of wealth and elimination of poverty. At different places

to fulfill the needs of individuals and society as well. In order to ensure the better distribution of

and also the guidelines provided by holy prophet P.B.U.H., therefore, the basic objective of this
paper is to analyze the role of these spending particularly infaq as a tool of equitable income
distribution in an Islamic society.
