Description : The past several years have seen an extraordinary growth in the practice of Islamic banking and finance which has now been renowned as a practical alternative and positively it will be the only financial system needed to get out from the financial crisis, with the expectation that it will play an increasingly more important role in the years to come; as such, the appeal of this type of finance stems mainly from its underlying fundamental concept of justice as well as from the sharing of risk and prohibition of interest. The Islamic financial system is rooted in the rules and norms of Islam and the prohibition of interest is the primary sources of Shariah, i.e. the Holy Qur'an and Sunnah, strongly condemn Riba in Islam and the aspiration of Muslims to see this prohibition practically implemented in their economic reality have led to the establishment of a number of Islamic financial institutions throughout the world. These financial institutions include Islamic commercial and investment banks, mutual insurance companies, and leasing companies. Handbook on Intermediate Islamic Finance attempts to look into the reasons why Islamic finance has not spread at a larger scale. The Islamic banks are facing also the return risk rate due to the use of interest rate to define the rate of return on investment accounts and financing rate. This is coming from the fact that the Islamic banks cannot lead the market for the moment mainly because of its small size compared with the conventional system. Therefore the Islamic banks are obligated to follow the market interest rate changes. This book aims to fill the gap of the current literature by showing the need to conduct further research on the derivation of Shariah risk and its potential in determining capital requirements in Islamic financial institutions.With analytical and forward-looking approach, this book will fascinate students, researchers and academics with a special interest in comparative banking, middle-eastern studies and international finance, and will also appeal to practitioners of banking and finance.

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 handbook offers a unique and original collection of analytical studies in Islamic economics and finance, and constitutes a humble addition to the literature on new economic thinking and global finance. The growing risks stemming from higher debt, slower growth, and limited room for policy maneuver raise concerns about the ability and propensity of modern economies to find effective solutions to chronic problems. It is important to understand the structural roots of inherent imbalance, persistence-in-error patterns, policy and governance failures, as well as moral and ethical failures. Admittedly, finance and economics have their own failures, with abstract theory bearing little relation with the real economy, uncertainties and vicissitudes of economic life. Economic research has certainly become more empirical despite, or perhaps because of, the lack of guidance from theory. The analytics of Islamic economics and finance may not differ from standard frameworks, methods, and techniques used in conventional economics, but may offer new perspectives on the making of financial crises, nature of credit cycles, roots of financial system instability, and determinants of income disparities. The focus is placed on the logical coherence of Islamic economics and finance, properties of Islamic capital markets, workings of Islamic banking, pricing of Islamic financial instruments, and limits of debt financing, fiscal stimulus and conventional monetary policies, inter alia. Readers with investment, regulatory, and academic interests will find the body of analytical evidence to span many areas of economic inquiry, refuting thereby the false argument that given its religious tenets, Islamic economics is intrinsically narrative, descriptive and not amenable to testable implications. Thus, the handbook may contribute toward a redefinition of a dismal science in search for an elusive balance between rationality, ethics and morality, and toward a remodeling of economies based on risk sharing and prosperity for all humanity

Description : This book provides an original account detailing the origins and components of a faith-based accounting system that was founded around 629 CE. By examining the historical development that the accounting systems underwent within the context of faith-based rules and values, the book explains what is meant by the term “faith-based accounting”, together with a discussion of its characteristics in relation to various product structures and the underlying Islamic finance principles. It provides important theoretical and practical contributions by explaining accounting as a value-based science rather than a value-free object or abstract. This book explores the way in which religious rules act as a directive for accounting and auditing practices in IFIs. Through which the concept of money and digital currency within the theory of money and how it is enacted in a faith-based context, amid differences of opinions among its actors, is examined. This is an important foundation to explain Islamic accounting and includes how this outcome would shape the faith-based view regarding the new phenomenon of digital currency (DC). Also featured is the concept of paper money within the theory of money and how it is enacted in a faith-based legal framework by identifying two core concepts of today’s Fiat money as being a single genus or multi-genera money. This book is not merely an academic work, nor is it a pure practitioner guide; rather, it is a robust work that combines both. It marries rigorous academic research and theories with practical industry experiences. The book provides a clear and concise guide to accounting in Islamic economics and finance and how Islamic financial institutions could meet the applicable faith-based rules in their accounting practices.

Description : In Islamic jurisprudence, a comprehensive ethic has been formulated governing how business and commerce should be run, how accountability to God and the community is to be achieved, and how banking and finance is to be arranged. This Handbook examines how well these values are translated into actual performance. It explores whether those holding true to the system are hindered and put at a disadvantage or whether the Islamic institutions have been able to demonstrate that faith-based activities can be rewarding, both economically and spiritually.

Description : The principal objective of this Handbook is to provide a deeper understanding of the ethical underpinning of Islamic economics and finance. Since the financial crisis of 2007/2008, discussions on ethics and finance have attracted attention in academic research as well as in public policy debates. This topic is being examined from different dimensions - finance for good society, responsible finance, ethical finance, and financial repression. Leading business schools such as Harvard have realized the importance of including dedicated courses on ethics in their business curriculum. As Islamic finance experiences a high growth rate, advocates of Islamic finance are making a case for Islamic finance as an ethical finance alternative. The main objective of the Handbook is to provide the theoretical foundation and perspective of the ethics embedded in Islamic economics and finance to demonstrate how this ethical framework would achieve economic and social justice leading to a just society. Most of the economic and finance issues are actually ethical issues such as dealing with moral hazard, self-interest, and social good. However, economics and finance as disciplines have been developed as 'value-neutral' social sciences. The Handbook will discuss the philosophical foundation of the ethics of business transactions and of Islamic economics and finance and how ethics shape the decision-making in such system.
