bn Qayyim in his writings also have talked about several matters in respect of the Islamic economic philosophy of the Islamic concept of man (homo Islamicus) and human non-economic (non homo economicus), the concept of justice and ethical values ​​in the economy, economic activity, cooperation and division of labor, ownership of wealth by individuals, and the role of government in the economy.
In this regard, Ibn Qayyim outlines the basic Islamic belief that every human being is responsible for guiding yourself into a good servant of God and God Almighty is the source of guidance and petunjuk.Dalam economic studies, people described as being the nature, behavior, and self-serving actions themselves, greedy, covetous, and make profits as the basis for all types of economic activity.
So, every person responsible for his actions and God Almighty to guide and guided towards the right path.In addition, Ibn Qayyim stressed that this life is a trial from Allah SWT Test applied to humans can be either in the form of awards or wealth given a hard life. Award to a person's wealth does not mean God love him.
Similarly, the test of poverty does not mean God hate the person.Wealth owned by the people does not mean life is full with kesenangan.Ibn Qayyim also touches on the question of justice is the core of all aspects of life. According to Ibn Qayyim, justice is the key goals and objectives of Shariah.
This is so because the Shariah was a justice, blessing, and wisdom. Things will convert justice in conflict with the blessing and the curse of good and evil, and the wisdom to something that is not conducive to the Shariah.

In this regard, Ibn Qayyim explains the values ​​of ethics should be practiced by Muslims in their economic activities. Among the good ethical values ​​is obedience to God, devotion to religion, the nature of good, honest, and true. When these values ​​practiced in daily life, especially in the economic activity, will take away the bad values ​​such as lying, cheating, and corruption.

He further explained that due to the nature of the mendacious will result in success is not achieved in kehidupan.Apabila a situation, economic life will be impaired as well as other aspects of life.

In other words, lies have a big impact in the lives of those big Islam.Memandangkan consequences of disobedience and social evils, Ibn Qayyim wrote that the effects of sin will lead to no good and condemned.

These sins crippled body and soul destroying human life in this world and after mati.Sifat negative properties such as lying, cheating, and exploitation and dishonesty lead to unpleasant situations in life.

There will be chaos, anxiety, instability, and frustration among the community. When all this happens, the economy will menguncup.Sebaliknya ethical values ​​which prevail in the community will enrich the atmosphere of confidence and security in the society.
At the same time, the community will cooperate in the production process and economic stability. In other words the production of goods and services will increase, and the community will be in clover.

In addition, Ibn Qayyim, organize intervention in the ownership of individual wealth if the individual using the wealth in the way that is contrary to public interest. In this regard, Ibn Qayyim has cited a piece of hadith of the Prophet's of a slave (property) which is jointly owned by several partners (you) to be released by one of his master, while the other gentlemen do not agree with the release.

In this case the Prophet s.a.w. determine a fair price and the partners are called on to receive their share. After that, the slaves were freed.

This hadith in Ibn Qayyim basis in determining the rules that a property that can not be divided and owned can be sold if one of the owners intend to menjualnya.Jelas, some aspects of the Islamic economic philosophy is described by Ibn Qayyim said is one of the principles and Islamic economic core philosophical difference with the conventional economy.
