Security in various dimensions (cultural, social, military, economic) is the most important human need that is of particular concern to the Islamic holy religion. Economic security is one of the important dimensions of security that is closely linked to the fate of society. Because the development of a society needs its economic progress. The Islamic religion has always introduced various rules for the economic system in order to achieve a desirable and healthy economy. Amir al-Mu'minin Ali (pbuh), the first Imam of the Shiites, has in his scientific and practical course precious tips of a healthy economy that, after the Holy Quran, is the most important source of economic security.
