Historical accounts in the Quran express that throughout history, economic power by itself without any ethical and moral values' help has never been enough for societies to endure their authorities and existences. Consequently, civilisations standing on their wealth alone were not able to continue their existence for a long period of time. Of course economic power is one of the foundational principles of a society to stand. The problem here is to leave economic prosperity alone to hold social development without any support and help. Economic power gives a big confidence and pride to its master who submits himself completely to its guidance. If a society considers wealth as the most important thing, it becomes insensitive to the corrosions of values in itself and starts believing that all the warnings of prophets are non-sense. Such an attitude quickens the process of collapsing, and losing power. History witnessed many societies collapsed due to this understandings, and willed such records to be read. The Qur'an supports to build a communal consciousness and raises economic power with moral and spiritual support.
