There is no wrong and right, for they have no true moral compass nor any ‘aql to distinguish between them, there is just material wealth and might. For them, success is measured by how much money one can accumulate and how much stuff one can acquire - there is nothing else to aim for. And that is why so many of them claim that they never have enough, and lie, cheat and steal to get more and more.
Thus, growth is the overriding necessity that underpins the atheist capitalist worldview, and hence its reliance on riba or increase in the transaction. The creation of ‘monetary wealth’ - in actuality, simply extra numbers on a computer screen - out of nothing.
Shaykh Abdal Qadir says concerning this, in his essay on the collapse of the Monetarist Society:
“The foundation of modernist atheism lies not in a metaphysical construct which declares that man does not ‘need’ the idea of Divinity – it lies in the embracing of usury as no longer forbidden, but necessary. In a limited and finite world the modern men declared that increase in the exchange was not only permitted but theoretically without limits.
Atheism has to precede usury. The Divine Creator affirms His reality by the confirmation that since nothing is associated with Him, everything in existence, that is creation, is other-than-Him, thus is in-time, has form and limits. It is because of the limit nature of the universe, that an exchange system that admits of the theory that increase can function when what is at hand is limited, must be forbidden.”
Usury and the law of man have brought this world to the brink - its seas are dying, its forests are disappearing and even its skies are eroding - all to feed their greed, and need for instant gratification. They think that this trade of theirs brings them joy and happiness, but the truth is that it does not even benefit them in this world, for Allah says,
