Description : Consumer preference has been a missing component in the development of Islamic home financing products. The views of consumers on the existing and new Islamic home financing products are generally overlooked by Islamic banks, although they are one of the most important stakeholders of Islamic banks. This issue has been evidently observed when Islamic home financing products are often criticized by the customers. Exploring factors which can improve consumer preference will offer a new understanding on customers' preference for Islamic home financing. Drawing upon the theory of planned behaviour (TPB), the innovation diffusion theory (IDT) and the theory of interpersonal behaviour (TIB), this study proposes a model to examine consumer preference for Islamic home financing as opposed to other types of financing. The role of attitude and religious satisfaction as a mediator and a moderator, respectively are also examined. The model is tested using survey data from 760 respondents who are the employees of public universities in Malaysia. Universities are selected because they have a good mix of respondents both covering professional and non-professional groups, reflecting the actual mix of bank customers of Islamic banks. The data are later analyzed using Partial Least Squares (PLS) since this method is appropriate when the model developed is complex and it is also used for the purpose of theory development. This study finds that product range, financial benefit, service quality, Islamic bankers' knowledge and the perceived risk of Islamic home financing are instrumental in determining consumer preference of Islamic home financing. Moreover, maqasid consumer index is a powerful predictor of consumer preference of Islamic home financing. It is also reported that Islamic bankers' knowledge, perceived risk of Islamic home financing and Islamicity of debt policy are instrumental in determining consumers' attitude. On the same note, consumer religiosity is found to be a key predictor of attitude. Attitude and religious satisfaction are evidently proven as significant mediator and moderator, respectively. In addition, information search is instrumental in influencing the consumer affective factor towards the Islamic home financing preference. The current study findings offer valuable insights for managers of Islamic banks to plan Islamic home financing offerings effectively. Findings of this study offer guidelines and benchmark which can help bank managers to formulate new approaches to further improve consumer preference of Islamic home financing products. The model of the current study addresses the interrelationship between the variables, thereby providing a better understanding of consumer preference. It provides fresh perspectives on the effects of critical success factors and consumer factors on consumer preference. Similarly, new perspectives are also found as these factors are also the determinants of consumers' attitude, and thus add to the negligible literature on how different factors influence consumers' attitude. It also offers new perspectives on the role of religious satisfaction as a moderator and the role of attitude as a mediator, often neglected in prior Islamic home financing literature.

Description : Due to the fierce competitive environment in the banking industry, several service providers implement marketing tactics to compete in order to achieve customer loyalty. Particularly, Islamic banks around the world are struggled to compete against conventional in terms of marketing activities development and gaining customer loyalty. Relationship marketing tactics such as price, service quality, communication, customization and reputation considered as the tools that marketers can use to enhance trust and commitment and subsequently customer loyalty. This study investigates the impact of relationship marketing tactics, trust and commitment on customer loyalty in Algerian Islamic banks. Data were collected through self-administered questionnaires delivered to 308 customers of two leading Islamic banks in Algeria. Data were analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling through Smart PLS. The results found that only communication and customization are related to trust, and reputation positively related to commitment. Communication and service quality significantly predicted customer loyalty. In addition, the results provided a substantial support that trust and commitment acts partially as the mediators on the relationship between relationship marketing tactics and customer loyalty. Findings also have contributed to new knowledge of evaluating a model of relationship marketing tactics with the role of trust and commitment on loyalty. Finally, it would be useful to examine more variables; future research can include different tactics such as reciprocity, tangible rewards, direct contact, value proposition, and customer satisfaction as well.

Description : The Handbook of Islamic Banking comprises 25 studies by leading international experts on Islamic banking and finance specially commissioned to analyse the various debates and the current state of play in the field. From its origins thirty years ago, Islamic banking has expanded rapidly to become a distinctive and fast growing segment of the international banking and capital markets. Despite this expansion, Islamic banking still remains poorly understood in many parts of the Muslim world and continues to be a mystery in much of the West. This comprehensive Handbook provides a succinct analysis of the workings of Islamic banking and finance, accessible to a wide range of readers. At the same time, it seeks to bring the current research agenda and the main issues on Islamic banking before a wider audience. Islamic banking offers, as an alternative to conventional interest-based financing methods, a wide variety of financial instruments and investment vehicles based on profit-and-loss sharing arrangements. These are all explored in detail along with other subjects such as governance and risk management, securities and investment, structured financing, accounting and regulation, economic development and globalization. M. Kabir Hassan, Mervyn Lewis and the other contributors have created an authoritative and original reference work, which will contribute to a wider understanding of Islamic banking as well as provoking further discussion and research. It will be invaluable to all scholars, researchers and policymakers with an interest in this subject.

Description : This book explores how, through spirituality and the development of character, Islamic financial institutions and Muslim communities can integrate their businesses with contemporary social responsibility initiatives to produce positive social and environmental impact. From the looming environmental crisis to the divide between mainstream and extremist interpretations of Islam, the book addresses significant questions facing Muslim communities – and humanity – and demonstrates why Islam should sit ‘at the table’ with other faiths and ethical traditions discussing humanity’s great obstacles. Unlike existing literature, this work explores the intersections between classical Islamic ethics and spirituality, contemporary Islamic finance and economic markets, and select sustainability and impact initiatives (such as the Equator Principles and UN Principles of Responsible Investment) designed to make the worlds of business and finance responsible for the environments in which they operate and the communities that support them. Drawing on his years of experience in Islamic banking, Moghul addresses these applications in light of real-world practices and dilemmas, demonstrating how Islamic organizations and Muslim communities should embrace the broad range of stakeholders countenanced by the Shari’ah in conversations that affect them. By situating his exploration of Islamic finance in the light of the much larger critical issues of balance, justice, and moderation in Islamic praxis, Moghul creates an interdisciplinary book that will appeal to academics and researchers in economics, finance, business, government and policy, and law.

Description : “This book contains two major subjects: Firstly; some academic papers about Islamic Banking. The main characteristic of Islamic banking in com­parison to traditional banking is that it is more concerned with the profitability and length of the proposed investment rather than collateral. Projects with high profitability and low collateral that might otherwise be rejected can be funded through Islamic banking. This leads to a banking behavior that is similar to development banks and microfinance institutions that have been very successful in many Third World countries. Academic research shows that Islamic banking is not a negligible or merely temporary phenomenon. (Contributors: Dr. M. Umer Chapra, Dr. Ahmet Akgündüz, Arjen van Klink, Drs. Bastiaan A. Verhoef and Ismail Özsoy). Secondly; some research articles about religion and development. Islam summarizes the root cause of the great social upheavals that have been suffered, particularly in this century, in two phrases. One is: “So long as I’m full, what is it to me if others die of hunger?” And the other is: “You struggle and labor so that I can live in ease and comfort.” Islam demonstrates that if hunger and poverty are to be eradicated, it will be through applying the Qur’anic injunction of almsgiving, social assistance and mutual help (vujub-u zakat): Being steadfast in performing prayers, giving zakat and the prohibition against earning without working, e.g., usury and interest (hurmet-i Ribâ: God has permitted trade and forbidden usury).” (Contributors: Dr. Ahmet Akgündüz, Dr. Arif Ersoy, Dr. Haşmet Başar and Dr. Bunyamin Duran).

Description : Development of emerging countries is often enabled through non-conventional finance. Indeed, the prohibition of interest and some other impediments require understanding conventional finance and Islamic finance, which both seek to be ethical and socially responsible. Thus, comparing and understanding the features of Islamic banking and conventional banking, in a globalized economy, is fundamental. This book explains the features of both conventional and Islamic banking within the current international context. It also provides a comparative view of banking governance, performance and risk-taking of both finance systems. It will be of particular use to practitioners and researchers, as well as to organizations and companies who are interested in conventional and Islamic banking.

Description : This book aims to explore and analyse Islamic Moral Economy (IME) as an alternative economic and social system to capitalism and socialism. It proposes a new model of Islamic development, integrating global development within an Islamic framework of spiritual development. It is argued that the failure of Muslim countries to provide basic necessities and an environment free of oppression and injustice can be overcome with this authentic Islamic development framework. In addition, this book can be an important study to identify the theological, political, social and economic boundaries for changing the society to produce IME oriented developmentalism.

Description : The development of Islamic banking and finance (IBF) previously centred around three regions of the world: the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and South Asia. However, in recent years, this has expanded, as interest in IBF has gained momentum in Australia, the USA, and Europe, especially in the UK. Several Western market players have established their own Islamic window or subsidiaries to cater to the need of growing Muslim populations in these regions. This book examines the recent developments in IBF, particularly in the context of Islamic social finance instruments, such as Islamic microfinance, halal education, takaful, mutual funds, and waqf. It covers the religiosity, spirituality, and tawhid index, which promotes social well-being and empowerment. The book is interdisciplinary, and theories, practice, and key issues are presented simultaneously, introducing new ideas and techniques to the IBF community. Moreover, the book examines topics such as innovation in Islamic social finance instruments, advanced techniques of risk mitigation in Islamic capital markets, marketing and the halal industry, and shari’ah-compliant instruments, which are critical to Islamic finance. The book is an essential reference text for academics and research students at the master’s and doctorate levels in IBF.

Description : Interest in Financial Services Marketing has grown hugely over the last few decades, particularly since the financial crisis, which scarred the industry and its relationship with customers. It reflects the importance of the financial services industry to the economies of every nation and the realisation that the consumption and marketing of financial services differs from that of tangible goods and indeed many other intangible services. This book is therefore a timely and much needed comprehensive compendium that reflects the development and maturation of the research domain, and pulls together, in a single volume, the current state of thinking and debate. The events associated with the financial crisis have highlighted that there is a need for banks and other financial institutions to understand how to rebuild trust and confidence, improve relationships and derive value from the marketing process. Edited by an international team of experts, this book will provide the latest thinking on how to manage such challenges and will be vital reading for students and lecturers in financial services marketing, policy makers and practitioners.
