  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Aishath Muneeza; Zakariya Mustapha (2022)

  • Islamic financial benchmarking is an area that requires research and needs practical solutions to advance the Islamic finance industry to a greater level. From the inception of contemporary Islamic finance, criticisms have been made about the fact that in Islamic finance, financing rates are benchmarked against conventional interest rates. To respond to these criticisms, Sharī ͑ah scholars have given justifications from Sharī ͑ah perspectives and in this regard some scholars ask: “Does consumption of beef suddenly become forbidden if its price were based on the price of pork?” (Alshubaily, 2018).

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Aishath Muneeza; Zakariya Mustapha (2021)

  • Islam is a comprehensive religion and a complete way of life that provides guidance not only in matters of ritual and worship but also mundane activities. Ethical principles, generally termed akhlaq, are embedded in Islam as important component of its guidance system for all dealings. Wealth in Islam is considered a trial, or a possession meant to try one's obedience to Allah (SWT). While one enjoys wealth, it is as well regarded as an endowed favour from Allah that embodies entitlements of poor and needy members of society. Appropriate disbursement of the entitlement due to the poor is an obligation that brings to light the issue of wealth as a trial, particularly on those who might ...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: M. Kabir Hassan; Aishath Muneeza; Adel M. Sarea (2021)

  • COVID-19 is considered by some as a 'black swan event', which is a pandemic that is unpredictable, unprepared for, and totally spontaneous (Gubler, 2020). This pandemic is different from four other recent pandemics the world has witnessed within the last 25 years (Gubler, 2020) as its impact has created not only a health crisis, but has led to an economic as well as human crisis brought due to a halt in all major economic activities in the world. The impact of COVID-19 on the sudden increase of poverty is uncontainable. By 12 March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic, as, since December 2019, the disease had been spreading worldwide, putting the worl...

  • COVID-19 is a black swan event that has turned back the global poverty clock. Millions have lost their jobs overnight and have no way to find employment due to the lockdown measures taken to adequately deal with the pandemic and save the humankind from being extinct. The first case of COVID-19 in India was reported on 30 January 2020 and on 24 March 2020, the Prime Minister of the country announced that the country is going for full lockdown. This caused disruption in all major economic activities and led to increase in unemployment causing extreme poverty as no immediate financial helping hand was offered to them. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), it is expecte...

  • Newsletter & Bulletin


  • Authors: Aishath Muneeza (2021)

  • The Internet of things (IoT) is described as the network of physical objects - 'things' or objects - that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the Internet. Today using IoT it is possible to measure the stress level and the poverty level of a household. As such, there is no reason why zakat distribution to the poor can be enhanced via linking it with IoT. The advantage of this could be that the poor who register with zakat administration authorities will have to register a single time and via the data receive from the household, the zakat administrator can determine whether the...

  • This study explores the practical application of the Shariah screening process and how it could be enhanced by converging the same with the ethical screening of stocks.

The data from this study reveal several practical applications, the ultimate goal of which is to help the policymakers and stakeholders understand t...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Aishath Muneeza; Zakariya Mustapha (2021)

  • The modern Islamic finance as an offshoot of financial engineering is the product of permissible innovation as a manifestation of the dynamism of Islam which allows for permanence and continued relevance of Islam in any age to come. Using technology or any permissible means to bring about financial solutions in society that ease human life is an integral part of the overall objectives of Shariah. Speaking in economic terms, Sharia strives at individual prosperity as much as of the society on the ideal that prosperity of individuals that make up a society underlies the prosperity of the society. In this modern age and time, financial inclusion constitutes a fundamental component of mos...

  • Zakat is the third pillar of Islam. Zakat received from eligible persons is paid to the legal recipients of it, as mentioned in the Qu'ran (9:60). The legal recipients of zakat are of eight categories and there is no priority given to a specific gender. As long as the person falls within any category of the 'legal recipient' irrespective of gender, the person is eligible to receive zakat. Against this backdrop, this article focuses on how zakat could be used to empower women who are eligible to receive it.
