Money has a crucial role in human economic and social life. Based on Islam, money is not only a medium of exchange or a unit of account but also has high ethical and moral values. Money is considered as a deposit from Allah SWT and humans have the responsibility to use money wisely and responsibly. The purpose of this research is to reveal the Islamic view of money in an economic and social approach. The methodology used is qualitative with a type of literature approach. The results of this study reveal that Islam emphasizes that the use of money as a means of transaction in the financial system must be based on sharia principles which consist of three levels, namely dharruriyat, hajiyat, and tahsiniat. Of these three levels, it can include the principles of justice, equality, and balance in economic activity. In addition, money also has an important role in human social life. In Islam, money can be used to help others through zakat, infaq, and alms. This shows that money is not only used for personal gain but also for social and humanitarian interests. In order to optimize the role of money in economic and social life, Islam emphasizes the importance of ethics and morals in the use of money. Humans are responsible for using money wisely, and responsibly, and paying attention to social and human interests. In this way, money can become a tool that brings blessings to people and society.
