Galadari, A. (2011) "Inner Meanings of Property Development: Qur'anic, Biblical, and Spiritual," International Proceedings of Economics Development and Research, 10:151-155.
Humanity has been developing the earth with real estate projects since the dawn of their existence. This paper unlocks linguistic secrets from the Semitic languages, such as Arabic, Hebrew, and Aramaic, in understanding real estate development, and if in fact, real estate is truly fake estate. It opens philosophical questions from the usage of Semitic words in property development portraying the difference between real estate economic development and spiritual development from within the contexts of the Qur’an and Bible. The paper identifies that property investment in the physical world is not real, and that the real investment is in spiritual development projects within each soul and society. It shows how developments in the physical realm are barren, while developments in the spiritual realm are fertile. The purpose for humanity is not only to develop planet earth, but also the earth of their body by making it the Temple of G-d.
