Zakat is the third pillar of Islam and it is an obligatory
payment that a free and rational Muslim who owns a certain amount of wealth has to observe. Its importance in Islam is manifested by the numerous pairings of its obligation to that of prayer (salah) in the Quran. Among the fundamentals of Islam, it has the most direct economic implications on Muslims for it involves the distribution of wealth from the affluent in society to those in need.

Other philosophical foundations (ontology, epistemology, axiology, methodology) are complementary to the idea in this project. What aspects would help it attain the best results? How to make it multi-confessional, and appealing to humanity as a whole? It is not the aim to appeal just to Muslims as per the term Islamic like the Islamic Finance and Banking industry does not appeal to Muslims. Hence, what may make the industry more efficient and how could other conventional, mainstream or other alternative industries help this project or benefit from it in a way to make economic thought, writing and practice more genuine and beneficial to all humanity?

I have used panel data and employed system GMM. I regressed Bank type on ROE and got significant positive results. I take a binary number of 1 if the bank is a traditional commercial bank, 0 an Islamic commercial bank. How would I interpret the result? Thanks in advance.
To the best of my knowledge, I think all banks operates by considering interest rates as returns/cost. But according to Islamic Sharia, interest is illegal.
How does it perform??
- Is there a difference between the value chain in Islamic banking and conventional banking ?
- How can Islamic banks achieve competitive advantage?
While doing research on the value chain and competitive advantage in Islamic banks, I found no study on this aspect. Maybe because there is no difference between Islamic banking and conventional banking in terms of value chain? shouldn't we start with that?
What are five main issues should be taken into consideration to boost the development of Islamic Banking and Finance today?
Regulatory, product development, shariah compliance, human resource, etc...
I read a paper that claim shariah compliance of Islamic banks could influence the market share of the bank but I couldn't find yet another paper that prove that.
Many clients of Islamic banks state that , the expenses of loan from Islamic banks exceed limits of interest rate of any loan in a conventional bank.
Some people believe that the Islamic banks' contracts practice injustice by doing the following:
- weaken trust, solidarity and compassion among people
- Increase fraud and jealousy.
- Increases distrust in markets.
- Increase the methods of fraud and deception.
Where can I download Annual Reports for Qatar International Islamic Bank for 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 year? Thank you.

The world witnessed a marginalisation of normative perspectives in disciplines and an emphasis of positive perspective as the norm upon which disciplines should be developed. This caused much destruction in material and non-material sense. What does the future hide from us?

Hello Dear Members,

My study is relating to Islamic Banking Consumer knowledge and i want to develop a model with the help of CFA (by using AMOS). Actual problem is: According to prior studies, Subjective knowledge and Familiarity is developed on 5 points Likert Scale but Objective Knowledge is on Dichotomous Scale (yes, No, I dont know). I am confused like when i will be developing the model it will create problem and may not be loaded on desired variable because all constructs are not on same scale.
Should i convert objective knowledge (Dichotomous Scale) to Likert Scale?? if yes then how? Or i should continue with the Dichotomous Scale?
The Islamic accounting standards reflect the fact of leasing in financial leasing operations, the product appear as assets in FS of Islamic Bank. The bank bears full ownership risks during the lease period
In traditional banks, accounting reflects the fact of the transaction as a debt rather than a lease, the asset appears in the client's assets rather than the bank. The rent is considered a debt on the customer since the first day of the contract.
This is my opinion, what do you think?
Probably, the reseacher need how many articles to read and to use in average as reference in his/her new article regardless of specialization?
I'm wishing to conduct my PhD thesis in the area of Islamic Finance. Initially, I've planned to conduct a research on the "Performance of Islamic Banks" with a comparison of two countries. I'm seeking advice from global community on my chosen area. Please advice me;

- What are the possible new dimension can be consider for this well practiced research?
- What would be some different ideas, if you have?
Please share any relevant literature available.
I am looking for articles related to sources and uses of charity / charitable fund managed by Islamic banking / financial institutions.
Note: It is not about Zakat.
Our understanding is that if employees themselves are not convinced of the organizational objectives, systems and practices it will reflect on their work behavior. Any thought on this is welcome.
I rarely find any of institutional theory applied into Islamic economics and consumer behavior research in takaful or insurance perspective. is there any journals / articles that explain more details (framework /diagram etc..)...
Thank You very much
Dear all, I am looking for Islamic Banks financial data. Can anyone suggest a database for that as Bankscope is no longer available. I have tried Orbis Bank but many data are not available.
Could Islamic Banking have prevented the financial crisis if only it had been further established in the western world?
May it help prevent future crisis due to its Shari'a based approach?
Entrepreneurs prefer Islamic Financing when the firm is doing poor business and prefer Traditional Debt financing if the firm is doing good - so that they need not part with their huge share of profits. Your opinion please.
Where I can find a global database for Islamic banks with information about profitability, liquidity, capital adequacy, asset quality ... of Islamic banks worldwide? On the Internet, I found that such database is Islamic Banks Information System which was launched by IRTI, but I have not been able to find it.
Despite the increased in the assets size and rapid expansion all over the world especially emerging economies coutries, pofit and loss sharing or partnership based financing is not popular against its fee based counterpart, the question remains unanswered whether today's islamic banks are really Islamic or just partly Islamic? Especially when risks exposed are almost transferred and absorbed by Islamic banks client. e.g. Murabahah mark up based financing. (The most popular mode of finance accounted more than 80% of its total finance)
i'm looking for proxy for displaced commercial risk that only islamic banks have, it's confused to determine what variables which appropriate...
Revenue recognition (@ income recognition) of financial products of Malaysian Islamic banks is based on the 'Effective Profit Rate Method' (especially for products with fixed rate such as Al Ijarah Thumma Al Bay @ lease). This method is an adoption of the well known 'Effective Interest Rate Method', where the word 'interest' is replaced with 'profit'. Do you think the method is a fair technique to the customer of IFIs? If the customer would like to make a prepayment (full settlement before the end of contract period), would the method resulted in a 'kind' of punishment to the customer for early settlement?
Islamic banks are in the comfortable zone generating income from Murabahah financing on the ground of "Darurah" or necessities. There are marginal efforts to completely becoming independent of this non-profit and loss mode of financing.
Like i have taken deposits and financing relation, i am not finding the literature review for Islamic banks, that is my re-searchable topic. but finding it on conventional banks but both banks has the same windows but different intentions. please guide
Credit rating agencies use conventionel methodologies while using sukuk. So, do we need an accurate and international Islamic credit rating agency
Islamic banks price its financing using interest rate as benchmark as a result higher total repayments have been a heavy burden to Islamic banking borrowers as such the question remain unanswered and also being ignored by practitioners and scholars alike.
Under GSTA 2014 Schedule 2 “Matters to be treated as neither a supply of goods nor a supply of services” ... paragraph 5 is headed “Supply of goods or services under Islamic financial arrangement.”
As i understand from this legal provision, Murabaha LC would be considered as neither a supply of goods nor a supply of services for tax purposes!
Is that right?
Theoretically one can argue that there can not be any financial institution like banks in Islamic economics paradigm as the real sense of existing banking practice contradict with the fundamental Islamic finance principles. The debate on whether Islamic banks ever be Islamic has been going on since the inception of the first Islamic bank in Egypt, Mit Ghamr. So, what's the current position among academics and practitioners after 5 decades of tremendous development in Islamic Finance.
The Shariah-compliant credit cards are becoming increasingly common in many countries.
"According to Brian Riley, a research director at TowerGroup, a financial services research firm based in Needham, Mass., Muslims constitute almost 24 percent of the world's population, and he estimates that total assets in Shariah-compliant banks will hit $1 trillion by 2011" (Read more: http://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/shariah-compliant-credit-cards-1273.php#ixzz43hAlz28i)
many Islamic banks are now involved in these Islamic credit cards in GCC Region, UK, USA, and more importantly in Malaysia (see Noor, A.M. and Azli, R.M., 2009. A review of SharENah compliant instruments for Islamic credit cards as adopted by Malaysian Financial Institutions. International Journal of Monetary Economics and Finance, 2(3-4), pp.221-238). instead of charging an interest "Riba", the customer is charged a subscription fee periodically
These efforts are apparently an attempt to utilize the huge Islamic compliant-assets worldwide. however, many people are still skeptics about the substance of these credit cards and the extent of its significance.
to what extent do you think that these Islamic instruments can contribute in the inclusion of Muslims in the financial system? and is it really Shariah-compliant?
Operational risk is defined as the risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people, and systems or from external events. This definition includes legal risk, but excludes strategic and reputational risk (BCBS).
Why banks usually exclude strategic & reputational risks from their definition of operational risk, although reputational risk could come from the failure of processes or people?
This question relating to the globe issue of being huge number of people are financial excluded. According to the launch of the Global Findex data set, based on nationally representative surveys of more than 150,000 adults in 148 economies, we have a fresh and robust answer to that question—approximately 2.5 billion adults lack a formal bank account. Most of these people are concentrated in developing economie.
In the year 2012, the data showed that East Asia has only 55% financial inclusion, Europe 45%, Latin America 39%, south Asia 33%, Sub-Sahara Africa 24%, Middle East and north Africa 18% are financial inclusion. what do you think about Sub-Sahara Africa, Middle-East and North Africa? where the Muslims and Christianity are leaving together, the religion factors aren't amongst the factors affecting financial inclusion?
There is no good research about the actual demand for Islamic financial services among Muslims in the West. Why are so many scholars spending so much energy exploring the finer details of Islamic banking when they really have no clue about how many potential customers there are?
hello i am looking for data that measures Islamic Banks developments through secondary data for my thesis, I've been searching the annual reports but need advice what determinants are the most appropriate? and if there are articles to refer?
