The holy Quran as the eternal miracle of the prophet of Islam (PBUH) requires an accurate understanding, in order to receive human life approaches which are not possible except through interdisciplinary studies. On the one hand humanistic sciences such as economy have not gained full credit and success in solving recent problems and answering the set questions. Suggested conventional economy policies in reducing poverty advises the correction of social institutions and does not pay much attention to “family” as a subject, when Islam looks at “family” as the basis leading to society concerning its social, cultural and economic aspects and suggests clear instructions and policies. In the same way, interdisciplinary studies enable us answer these sorts of questions. The following article has analyzed the role of moderate consumption on poverty alleviation in families by looking at Islamic teachings. If family’s economical patterns are formed based on Islamic teachings, these ideologies and beliefs of moderate consumption and poverty alleviation will be effective. Income, moderation, contentment and personal status are the required axes in drawing an Islamic life style based on justice and poverty alleviation in society. In practical approaches of this research we may point at the relevance of marriage and poverty alleviation, effect of priority in the couples’ consumption and also economical teachings of parents to their children in the formation of moderate consumption patterns in Islamic family.
