The study conducts an extensive review of the literature on corporate social responsibility, published works on the Qur'an and other Islamic teachings and suggests a means to enrich scholarship in Islamic marketing. The study finds a significant overlap between the principles of CSR and the teachings of Islam and suggests a means through which Islamic marketing could leverage this commonality. Even though this is a purely theoretical paper, it nonetheless makes a valid contribution. The study seeks to contribute to the theoretical foundation of Islamic marketing.
