  • Islamic_wealth_management_issues_waqf_management_Malaysia_Shamsher.pdf.jpg
  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Ariff, Mohamed (2020)

  • This chapter briefly examines ideas from Islamic wealth management and waqf concepts to see if there are ways in which human welfare can be better managed on a community-action level without the visible hands of the government. To do this, authors first examine the concept of Islamic wealth management, and then provide some discussion on how waqf assets already in place in all Islamic countries could be mobilised to meet the needs of communities for sustainable economic development as well as fairer ways of looking after the needs of the have-nots of societies.

  • Authors: Anwer, Zaheer; Naeem Azmi, Choudhari Wajahat; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Paltrinieri, Andrea (2020)

  • The aim of this article is to investigate the motivation of CEOs to invest in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities. To carry out this analysis, we assess a sample of US conventional and Shariah Compliant (SC) firms, from Dow Jones Indices. As SC firms undergo business and financial screening, they are expected to follow different managerial styles and capital structures as compared to conventional firms. This comparison is important in view of the growing size of the Islamic Financial Services Industry that has surpassed total asset values of USD 2.00 Trillion. Existing literature argues that, for conventional firms, CEOs spend on CSR either to promote their private benefi...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Muhamad Sori, Zulkarnain; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2019)

  • This chapter provides new findings to accounting and finance literature, where, it compares the conceptual framework of both of the MASB- and the AAOIFI- in the context of financial reporting of Islamic financial institutions (IFls). The conceptual framework or some authors referred as "accounting constitution" set the tone for a consistent accounting standards and become a reference point for developing future standards for financial accounting and reporting (Barker et al., 2014; Abela et al., 2014; Holzmann & Munter, 2014 (Sutton et al., 2015; Gebhardt et aI., 2014; Norby, 1977; Gore & Zimmerman, 2007). In this context, more than 120 countries (including major players in Islamic fin...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Anwer, Zaheer; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Mohd Rasid, Mohamed Eskandar Shah; Hassan, M. Kabir; Paltrinieri (2019)

  • Capital structure serves as an important device for mitigation of agency conflicts and, although firms combine debt and cash dividends to address the agency conflicts, debt is preferred as a bonding device by many managers due to its lower cost as compared to equity (John, Knyazeva & Knyazeva, 2015). However, shariah-compliant firms (SCF) cannot use this device due to prohibition of interest-bearing loans in Islam. In this scenario, the dividend payout policy becomes a highly important tool of corporate governance for shariah-compliant investors. Moreover, the managers of these firms cannot maintain stable dividends by issuing bonds and, therefore, the dividend policy of such firms wo...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Anwer, Zaheer; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Mohd Rasid, Mohamed Eskandar Shah (2019)

  • Investment is an activity that involves the commitment of resources for a certain holding period in anticipation of creating more resource (wealth). This chapter focuses on the risk-adjusted performance of two-specific classes of assets, namely, the socially responsible investment (SRI) class and the shariah-compliant classes of assets. The aim is to ascertain whether investors have to bear an extra cost for choosing these classes of assets in their portfolio. In managing the Islamic finance space, religiosity and/or ethical practices prompt investors to discard so-called 'sin-stocks' and limit their investment horizons to permissible faith-based investment alternatives ...

  • Authors: Naeem Azmi, Choudhari Wajahat; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Mohd Rasid, Mohamed Eskandar Shah (2019)

  • This paper examines the financial performance of ethical funds in different regions and concludes that there is a cost attached to ethical investing. An analysis of 964 mutual funds comprising of Socially responsible funds (SRFs) and the Shariah-compliant equity funds (SCFs) suggests that: a) except for global funds, both types of funds underperform in the market, b) both types of funds are preferred for investment in growth and momentum stocks, c) SRFs are preferred for small capitalized stocks whereas SCFs do not follow any specific style or investment strategy, d) unlike SRFs, SCFs do not provide a safe haven for investors during crises. These findings are probably due to the lack ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Naeem Azmi, Choudhari Wajahat; Anwer, Zaher; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Mohd Rasid, Mohamed Eskandar Shah (2019)

  • According to the substitution hypothesis and recent evidence, firms that are better governed carry less debt and experience fewer agency problems. This may also imply that firms with lower debt are better governed and experience lower agency costs. We test this hypothesis by comparing the agency costs of Shariah compliant (SC, and therefore low debt) and Shariah noncompliant (SNC) firms, using a proprietary dataset comprising constituents of the Dow Jones Islamic index for the period 2006-2015. The findings support the hypothesis but are contingent on the firm's idiosyncratic risk; SC firms with low idiosyncratic risk have higher agency costs.

  • Authors: Muhamad Sori, Zulkarnain; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; AlHomsi, Mahmoud (2019)

  • Documented evidence on conventional bond markets shows negative market reaction to bond credit rating downgrade and no reaction to credit rating upgrade. Despite the fact that sukuk issuances make up more than 58.8% of the value of outstanding bonds in the country and Malaysia issues at least half of the world's sukuk and is widely recognized as a leader in the sukuk space, there is no documented evidence on the stock market reaction to sukuk credit rating changes. This study analyzed the wealth effect of sukuk credit rating changes in Malaysia using 16 sukuk upgrades and 20 sukuk downgrades for the period 2000-2014. The evidence shows negative market reaction to downgrades and positi...

  • This thesis examines the Major Sukuk Defaults that have been experienced to date in the Islamic Capital Market. The total major cases that have been witnessed, according to Syed Ali (2016), are 10 major cases. A further dig by this study found that they are actually 11 major cases in total. Due to constraints and data availability, only 6 major cases were sampled. While previous studies have discussed Sukuk defaults from many perspectives, few attention have, so far, been given to issues in Sukuk default from a Shari'ah perspective. This study investigates some of the issues with the 6 major cases sampled from a Shari'ah perspective. Hence, the contribution of this research is germane...
