Abstract

Post-fordist production is a part of postmodern life as well as referring to a new work style and business life of today. For this reason, there is a "reciprocity relationship" between post-fordism and postmodernism. As it is all across the world, religious (Muslim) businessmen are affected globally by the new flexible business approach. Becoming a power, demonstration and social competition of business and career, just as in the other fields of social life, places the Muslims in a position which contradicts with most of the values and discourses they supported in the past.
