Abstract: In recent years, the researchers and academicians have moved toward the research area of Corporate Social responsibility (CSR). CSR is contextual in nature and still, there is no such definition available in the literature which can be considered the perfect one. Many scholars tried to clarify this concept and also different authors has developed CSR measurement scales and indexes for different sectors. But the dilemma remains the same in both the cases. Islam also highlights the CSR concept in a better way. Various scholars also struggled to present the CSR concept of Islam.
