Abstract

Aspects of consumption are becoming increasingly important as the current approach fails to solve manycollective socio-economic phenomena that lead to poverty, hunger and unemployment. There is no doubtthat the current approach is either in the form of concepts, principles, theories or models that have beenused to analyse and understand the discipline of consumption in theory and practice. However, the currentapproach which is based on ‘tasawwur’ and Western epistemology are not suitable to be applied to theculture of the East, especially the Muslim community because of the differences in background beliefs,culture and environment. This reality highlighted the importance of Islamic approach. However, theexisting of Islamic approach is smaller compared to its conventional counterparts. It justifies building anew approach that reflects on ‘tasawwur’, epistemology and the ontology of Islam. Keywords: Hierarchical Consumption, Muslim Consumer, Socioeconomic, Islamic Approach
