I came across this presentation on Chinese work ethics and Islamic business principles on a blog by almost an accident. The author is actually non-Muslim Indonesian resident. The main thrust of the argument is that the Chinese business and work ethics which is based on Confucian principles and Islamic business principles which are based on the Quran and the Sunnah converge on a large number of things and thus there is no conflict between the two. The presentation and the link is here.
As a side note: There is a whole body of literature on the convergence between Islamic values and Confucian values in the Chinese literature but that is a topic for another day. Confucius’ Analetics was also translated in Arabic by a Chinese Muslim scholar in the 1960s.
