Did Islamic society invent Capitalism many centuries before Karl Marx said it was invented? Was Karl Marx ignorant of History by just seeing a European-only classical view of social evolution? Or was he so ignorant that he knew nothing about the Abbassid/Hummayad strife that preceeded the French Revolution by many centuries, and just like the French Revolution became so corrupt to whipe-out the Great Social Principles that it expounded?

Yes..both adversary (Capitalism and Socialism) came out from Averoes' (if I'm not mistaken) writings;
"Collect as many property as possible,and share it to all"
If you cut this sentence into two,you would get;
"Collect as many property as possible.."-premise no. 1
"..and share it to all"-premise no. 2
Note that if you take the first premise you'll be a Capitalist and if you take the latter,you'll be a Socialist.
But if you combined them,you'll be an Islamist
