Abstract:Most cultures within Pakistan are founded upon hospitality and sharing material blessings, including money. Family unit cohesion, together with cultural and religious traditions, manifest in high levels of philanthropy.
As a country founded in the name of religion, Islamic practices permeate behaviour and legislation in Pakistan. Islam encourages ethical business, reinforces transparent written contracts, decent working conditions and fair exchanges both for natural resources and human effort. As guardians of this earth, Muslims have, in the Sharia (Islamic law), holistic codes of social behaviour. This includes guidelines on business ethics and managing public resources, including the environment.
