However, after decades in darkness the Muslims have become increasingly agitated by the depravity that pervades them. What started with dissent has now developed into a prodigious revolution across the Muslim world, characterised primarily by an overwhelming Islamic sentiment. At present, the caliphate is no longer perceived as a distant past but a near future, whose return has been made clear by Allah (ﷻ) in His promise to us:
“Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion, the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace: They will worship Me (alone) and not associate aught with Me.’ If any do reject faith after this, they are rebellious and wicked.” [TMQ 24:55]
Islam’s imminent arrival has necessitated a vital discourse, in which its ability to purge the Muslim world of its economic woes must be explicated. This book seeks to do just that by expanding upon the Islamic economic system (IES), through contemporary economic theory; introducing the subject of economics and the political economy, whilst highlighting key issues ingrained within the capitalist laissez-faire system.
Above all, it attempts to present Islam as a panacea to the maladies of capitalism by way of comparative economic analysis with the sole intent to extirpate (through revival) the ideological impotence that has plagued and obstructed our minds.
In doing so, it will enable the reader to discern which ideology is more capable and efficient in solving key economic problems faced in our current reality.

In Dragon Ball Culture Volume 3: Battle, you’ll discover the origin of Goku’s training mentality. You’ll see how Akira Toriyama combines thousands of years of martial arts history and modern cinema together to create the Tenkaichi Budōkai. And you’ll hear how Dragon Ball almost gets cancelled, but then changes its format to become the world’s most recognized anime and manga series.

Volume 3 explores Chapters 24 to 53 of the Dragon Ball manga. Let the battle begin!
Akira Toriyama starts us off by introducing three new characters into the story. These are Tenshinhan, Chaozu, and their evil master, Tsuru-sennin. This book reveals each of their cultural backgrounds. That’s right, if you’ve ever said to yourself, “Why does Tenshinhan have a third eye?” and, “What the heck is Chaozu?!” then this is the book you’ve been waiting for.
Toriyama then takes the Dragon Ball story to new depths by adding demons and gods into the mix. He increases the intensity of the series and makes it so Goku has no choice but to train harder in order to enact his revenge. And the way Goku does it is straight out of secret Daoist meditation practices of ancient China. Inside these pages you’ll discover the true origin of the demon king, find out how Goku learns to sense the energy of his opponents, and understand the full power of the world famous senzu.
