They want to have their saved money safe and with the same or at least a little bit lower purchasing power than the current time. Inflation is the problem that most of people are worried about and are reluctant about the future problems caused to them. Paper money in today’s world is the one of the most important issues that causes inflation because, mostly governments print fiat or paper money based on their perception of market need without having real assets to back up them. Since, there is no real asset-backup for the fiat money printed, it would be over printed and inflation occurs which would diminish the purchasing power of people in the society.
1.1 Background of the study
There are insufficient studies done on the relationship of implementation of Islamic currency Dinar and Dirham which are backed by real assets and the prevention of inflation. The fluctuation of prices and the ever-rising inflation would be controlled and prevented by implementing the Islamic currency model which introduces Dinar and Dirham that are backed by Gold and silver.

Such commodities have been many throughout history such as copper, gold, wine, silver and shells” (P.1).
