Description : During the last ten years the Islamic banking sector has grown rapidly, at an international level, as well as in individual jurisdictions including the UK. Islamic finance differs quite substantially from conventional banking, using very different mechanisms, and operating according to a different theory as it is based on Islamic law. Yet at the same time it is always subject to the law of the particular financial market in which it operates. This book takes a much-needed and comprehensive look at the legal and regulatory aspects which affect Islamic finance law, and examines the current UK and international banking regulatory frameworks which impact on this sector. The book examines the historical genesis of Islamic banking, looking at how it has developed in Muslim countries before going on to consider the development of Islamic banking in the UK and the legal position of Islamic banks within English law. The book explores company, contract, and some elements of tax law and traces the impact it has had on the development of Islamic banking in the UK, before going on to argue that the current legal and regulatory framework which affects the Islamic banking sector has on certain occasions had an unintended adverse impact on Islamic banking in the UK. The book also provides an overview of the Malaysian experience in relation to some of the main legal and regulatory challenges in the context of Islamic banking and finance.

Description : Islamic banking is the result of the untiring search for interest-free alternatives to conventional banking and it has been successfully introduced in the Middle East. However, in Southeast Asia, where there are large Muslim communities, Islamic banks are to be found only in Malaysia and the Philippines. Nevertheless, there is considerable interest in the possibility of establishing banking institutions and practices consonant with Islam in other countries in the region. In this book, scholars evaluate the role and performance of Islamic banking in Southeast Asia and examine the problems and prospects of establishing Islamic banks in countries where such banking does not exist.

Description : As an introduction to the complex issue of harmonization of legal and regulatory structure of the European financial system and Islamic finance, this is a useful and welcome volume. The ideas, insights and practical issues addressed in the informed papers that compose the book should be valuable for academics and students of finance, and to those who provide legal and financial services. The book will be helpful also to European regulators who have yet to appreciate the importance of Islamic finance and its potential contribution to financial globalization as well as to European economic growth. Abbas Mirakhor, Former Executive Director, International Monetary Fund, US This timely book examines the authorization of Shari ah-compliant intermediaries as either credit institutions or as investment companies in the European Union. The contributing authors explore the key topics of this area through differing yet parallel perspectives for example, comparing economic and legal standpoints, looking at both European and national levels and considering both academic and technical approaches. The book discusses the common origin of Islamic and Western traditions in commercial and banking transactions, reviewing a period in which the Italian merchants and their organizations drove the rebirth of post-medieval society in trade and law. The editors investigate whether the Islamic banking and financial model complies with the European framework, spelling out the different experiences in single Member States (Germany, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom). Notwithstanding the obstacles to being authorized as domestic credit institutions, they conclude that the access of Islamic intermediaries is suitable and may have positive effects on European integration, as well as increasing the competition among the stand-still operators and evoking the ethical dimension of banking and finance. The book also highlights how Islamic banking would make the industry more inclusive. This multidisciplinary book will appeal greatly to economics and legal scholars with an interest in European and international banking and financial law, as well as postgraduate students in international law and banking law. Practitioners and regulators will also find this book an invaluable resource.

Description : Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 98%, course: Islamic Finance and Banking, language: English, abstract: Islamic financial industry has shown a positive growth that attracts many investors and clients worldwide. Malaysia, one of the pioneer members of this emerging industry, is also experiencing notable development in operating more than seventeen Islamic banking institutions. However, non-Muslim clients experience difficulties when it comes to understanding the overall system, principles, features and sophisticated Arabic terms that Islamic banks use. The purpose of this research is to examine the level of awareness, understanding, and perceptions of non-Muslims in selected northern universities of Malaysia towards Islamic banking products and services. In addition, this study also aims to investigate if there are any demographic factors that influence the awareness, understanding, and perceptions of Islamic Banking products and services among non-Muslim students in selected universities. The result shows that the vast majority of respondents are generally aware of Islamic banking products and services. Nevertheless, the result also indicates that non-Muslim students do not have enough knowledge and understanding of Arabic terms that Islamic Banks use in their products and services. The study found that there is a significant relationship between understanding and awareness. Furthermore, the results showed that there is no significant relationship between perception and awareness. Moreover, the study found that demographic factors such as age, religion, and level of education show significant differences among respondents, while gender shows no significant difference among the respondents. This study contributes to the available literature on the Islamic banking Industry in general while imparting managerial aspects through its recommendations. It suggests that Islamic banking managers should take all necessary

Description : This is how Islamic Banking really works Volume 3 of the Islamic Banking in Practice series covers the three main areas of Retail Banking, Risk Management and Structured Investments. Key products in all of these areas are discussed and explained in detail, covering the different types of contracts and structures used in the Islamic Banking and Finance sector. The journey in transforming classical contracts (such as Murabaha, Mudarabah, Wakala, Ijara and so on) into finished products that are executed, is a compelling one. This includes the transformation of inherent risks to suit the parties involved. This process of transformation highlights the perpetual conflict that exists within the industry – how to utilise classic contractual forms to deliver (overwhelmingly) products that are priced at interest.

Description : Indonesia is the most populous Muslim country in the world. Taking into account also its endowment and potential economic resources, the Islamic banking industry in Indonesia was expected to take on an important role in facilitating more financial resources and to contribute to the internationalization of the Islamic mode of financing particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. However, the reality is far from the expectation. This book aims to clarify the causes and fundamental constraints leading to the extraordinarily low level of Indonesia’s Islamic financial deepening. The authors draw on the traditions of Institutional Economics which are concerned with the rules or mechanisms of creating the 'incentive' and 'threat' for economic players because the rules (institutions) would matter as the determinant for economic development and economic efficiency. This book offers a fairly new analytical lens by hypothesizing that Islamic banks must earn additional profit– the authors coined as ‘Islamic bank rent’ - to maintain their franchise value as prudent Shari’ah-compliant lenders when compared to conventional banks. The authors argued that insufficient provision of the Islamic bank rent opportunity may have caused the Indonesia’s Islamic banks the opportunity to learn and improve their skill and capacity for the credit risk management. The book also offers evidence in support of implementing economic and affirmative policy necessary for incubating and developing the Islamic banking industry in Indonesia and making Indonesia an international Islamic financial hub in the Asia-Pacific region. This book will be a useful resource for policy makers and researchers interested in Islamic banking in Indonesia.

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 : This book is about the principles of Islamic banking. It explains the prohibition of Riba, and how the prohibition of usury was common to all monotheist religions. The use of Islamic laws in banking can bring together investors and managers; and also to explain mudarabah which is an arrangement where an investor entrusts his capital or merchandise to an agent. The book explains the belief of economic progress; that development does not imply Westernization. The encouragement of private sector activity is not, however, accompanied by any deliberate policy of fostering competition. The authority in an Islamic state is an interest that extends not only to criminal law, but also to the commercial law which affects both local and foreign companies. Although the law is usually applied consistently within individual countries, there is less consistency among Islamic states. The Koran and the sunnah, of course, provide the basis of the law in all Islamic states, but interpretation varies considerably. It finally explains the greatest challenge to the world of Islamic commerce in the 20thcentury is, to transform the classical mudarabah into an equally smooth functioning and efficient modern Islamic bank with the potential of almost unlimited growth.

Description : This book is a work of historical analysis focusing on the development of Islamic financial institutions from 1992 to 2011 in Indonesia as they relate to Islamic banking using a political-economic approach. Indonesia plays an influential role in various international political and Islamic organizations because it has the largest Muslim population in the world. Although Indonesia was late in establishing its banking initiatives, it did so 1992 in response to the growth of the Islamic financial institutions. From 1992 to 2011 many laws and regulations were established to support the growth of Islamic banking in Indonesia, but by national financial market indicators, Islamic banking in Indonesia fell behind many expectations. This analysis suggests that the shortcomings may be due in part to the waning power of key elements of the political superstructure to push policies that supported Islamic banking and Islamic economic systems, and establish synergies with institutions of Islamic economic education and stakeholders to accelerate the growth of Islamic banks in terms of service, national market share, and public trust.

Description : Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Orientalism / Sinology - Islamic Studies, grade: 1,3, Ben Gurion University (Middle East Institute), course: Middle East Economics, 81 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The Islamic banking system is a relatively young institution that gains influence not only in the Islamic world but also in non-Muslim countries with big Muslim communities. The first Islamic bank, Dubai Islamic Bank, was erected in 1975; today about 265 Islamic finance institutions operate in more than 70 countries, and their assets have increased more than 40-fold since 1982 to exceed $230 billion. More and more western banks erect Islamic branches; the first was Citibank in 1996. This paper discusses the influence of an Islamic banking system on the start-up of young, innovative businesses. A negative influence would hinder these businesses to develop – if not counterbalanced by other measures like state involvement. In non-Muslim countries it would constrain religious Muslims from participating in the contemporary economical changes, determined by an opening-up of markets and privatization, which requires the start-up of new businesses. The Islamic banking system operates according to Islamic law; hence several Islamic restrictions, the most important is the prohibition of riba (=interest), limit its freedom to develop suitable financing instruments for the support of young, innovative businesses. These restrictions enlarge the risk of the bank especially when financing these businesses, so the bank either avoids these businesses or tries to bend the Islamic law and operates – de facto – like a conventional bank. In this case, however, the bank is facing problems with the Religious Supervisory Board, an integral part of every Islamic bank, which will stop the bank from deriving from the Islamic law (sharī ́a). After discussing these determinants, I will discuss the existing interest-free financing instruments of Islamic Banking suitable for the start-up of young, innovative enterprises. On the example of the PLS-concepts musharaka and mudaraba, I will analyse the factors that make these financing concepts not attractive for banks, especially when financing young, innovative business. On the example of the Mark-up activities murabaha (Trade Financing) and ijara/ijara al-waktina (Leasing) I will analyse, why these concepts are only suitable for financing very special cases of young businesses and are not a suitable alternative to Western banking concepts for the majority of young entrepreneurs. Finally I will show ideas how to improve the system without violating Islamic law, but also discuss the limits of the Islamic banking system.

Description : Islamic banking has seen rapid growth during the last two decades. This is a result of the liberalization of financial regulation, the globalization of financial markets, technological changes, product innovation, the birth of several new Islamic States, and a growing Islamic presence in the West, among other factors. New innovations have allowed economists and religious scholars to bring new products to almost all areas of banking and insurance, products which would previously have been extremely controversial. This book provides a better understanding of the Muslim community around the world of Islamic economics and its importance, especially in these days of financial crisis. The book will also serve as a reference manual for teaching the theory and practice of Islamic banking and Islamic financial innovations around the world. Islamic finance courses at universities are highly important since Islamic financial innovations remain very limited, and additional efforts have to be made in this area.

Description : A practical guide for robust sharī'ah governance of the Islamic banking industry Debate in the market on the extent of sharī'ah compliance of Islamic banks, their products, and activities has piqued stakeholders' interest. In Foundations of Sharī'ah Governance of Islamic Banks, Karim Ginena and Azhar Hamid explore the depths of sharī'ah governance to unravel its mysterious dimensions, and equip academics and practitioners with a solid understanding of the subject, which has become a serious challenge and thus deserves dedicated attention. The authors make a strong case for the need to contain the sharī'ah risk that Islamic banks experience, and present a compelling argument for how this should be done. Ginena and Hamid propose a robust sharī'ah governance model that comprehensively tackles thisrisk, and helps improve the extent of sharī'ah compliance of market players. The authors detail the internal, external, and institutional arrangements needed to promote responsible sharī'ah governance, and critically analyze current laws, regulations, and industry practices on the topic. The chapters of the book do the following: Examine the roots, characteristics and objectives of sharī'ah and its relation to financial dealings; Probe the role of regulators in sharī'ah governance, explore the different approaches adopted by banking supervisors, and provide examples of relevant legal and regulatory measures; Explain to bank directors and management the fiduciary duty they assume with respect to sharī'ah compliance, and detail how they could discharge this responsibility in line with best practices; Elaborate on the purpose of the Sharī'ah Supervisory Board (SSB), its responsibilities, competence criteria, internal regulations, and key governance guidelines; additionally, they explore different SSB models; Describe the internal sharī'ah control system including its six components, and examine the internal sharī'ah audit function as well as different stages of conducting a sharī'ah audit; Clarify the role of a sharī'ah auditor, with guidance on reporting lines, scope of duties, authority, and practical ways on fulfilling tasks, such as a sample sharī'ah risk assessment grid and audit checklists; Discuss the newly emerging external sharī'ah advisory firms that are expected to play a key role in the coming years and the services they provide. Through an effective treatment of each of these elements, and the way that they interact with one another, the book offers a fresh take on how robust sharī'ah governance of Islamic banks can be successfully accomplished. It is a comprehensive resource for academics, regulators, directors, lawyers, auditors, consultants, employees, and customers of Islamic banks interested in learning more about these challenges. This essential reading persuasively extends the discourse on the subject and addresses critical sharī'ah issues that have policy implications for decision makers in jurisdictions aiming to attract the fast-growing Islamic finance industry or increase their market share.

Description : Some Muslims believe insurance is unnecessary, as society should help its victims. Muslims can no longer ignore the fact that they live, trade and communicate with open global systems, and they can no longer ignore the need for banking and insurance. Aly Khorshid demonstrates how initial clerical apprehensions were overcome to create pioneering Muslim-friendly banking systems, and applies the lessons learnt to a workable insurance framework by which Muslims can compete with non-Muslims in business and have cover in daily life. The book uses relevant Quranic and Sunnah extracts, and the arguments of pro- and anti-insurance jurists to arrive at its conclusion that Muslims can enjoy the peace of mind and equity of an Islamic insurance scheme.
