Islamic awakening needed a new economic doctrine, efficient and morally superior to the secular economic doctrines dominating the modem world. A few Muslim economists championed the reintroduction of Islamic economic doctrine. They held conferences, seminars and workshops. They published papers and books that attracted the attention of economists, students and learned circles in the Muslim world as well as in Western countries.
