In addition to these two major systems, also known as the Islamic economic system, which refers to the economic practice of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Islamic economic system is an alternative to the fundamental problems of the two major systems that already exist. However, when referring to the conditions of the birth of Islam in the midst of Arab society steeped in culture trade, alleged the influence of the capitalist culture of the economic system of Islam, so Islam is perceived closer to capitalism than socialism. Through the study of literary conclusion that Islam and capitalists are the two things affect each other. Sociologically, Islam is present in a capitalist society that both have an attachment. Capitalism, especially trade capitalism existed before Islam came. Before the birth of Islam, Mecca has become the center of international trade and finance.
