Third, the most preponderant opinion is that it is permissible to impose it within provisions. The study concludes with a set of recommendations, the most important of which is that the researcher recommends the need to observe the provisions of Islamic jurisprudence when approving tax legislations in Islamic countries, the researcher also recommends the concerned tax authorities in the Islamic world to increase the pace of cooperation with various bodies and organizations in order to approve tax rules based on the provisions of Sharia, and take into account the interests of the people.
