      • Islam allows only one kind of loan that is Qardhul Hassan.
    • Equity participation
      • Islam encourages muslims invest their money and become partners in order to share profits and risk in the business instead of becoming creditors.
      • In Islam, financing is based on the belief that the financier and borrower should equally share the risks of the business venture.

Prohibition of gharar

    • Ghararmeans to undertake a venture blindly without sufficient knowledge or to undertake excessively transactions
    • An Islamic financial system discourages hoarding and

prohibits transactions featuring extreme gharar.

  • Contractual relationship
    • Depends upon the nature of transaction.
    • It could be a seller and buyer relationship (Murabaha), a lessor- lessee relationship (Ijara), and a partnership (Musyaraka)
  • Money as Potential Capital
  • It is way of defining the value of a thing.

  • The difference is Shariah compliant
  • انما البيع مثل الربا – احل الله البيع و حرم الربا
advantages of islamic banking
Advantages of Islamic Banking
  • Justice and Fairness

~ The main feature of the Islamic model is that it is based on a profit-sharing principle, whereby the risk is shared by the bank and the customer.

~ This system of financial intermediation will contribute to a more equitable distribution of income and wealth.

  • Liquidity

~ Follow the profit and loss-sharing principle to mobilize resources and are less likely to face any sudden run on deposits.

~ As such, they have a minimum need for maintaining high liquidity.


Better Customer Relations

~ Financing and deposits are extended under the profit and loss sharing arrangement. The banks are likely to know their fund users better in order to ensure that the funds are used for productive purpose and vice-versa for investors.

~ It will develops better relations between the financial intermediary and the fund providers or consumers.

~ Also promote productive economic activities and socio-economic justice.

  • No Fixed Obligations

~ Islamic banks do not have fixed obligations such as interest payments on deposits. Therefore, they are able to allocate resources to profitable and economically desirable activities.

~ Also holds good for Islamic financing, as the payment obligations of the entrepreneur is associated with the revenue.


Ethical and Moral Dimensions

~ Strong ethical and moral dimensions of doing business and selecting business activities to be financed, play an important role in promoting socially desirable investments and better individual or corporate behavior.

  • Banking for All

~ Although based on Syariah principles to meet the financial needs of Muslims, it is not restricted to Muslim only and is available to non-Muslims as well.
