  • Zakat_calculation_software_for_corporate_entities_Noor Suhaida.png.jpg
  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Mezbah Uddin Ahmed; Noor Suhaida Kasri (2021)

  • Ensuring socio-economic justice, eradication of poverty and equitable distribution of wealth are among the primary objectives of Islam. Even so, a significant number of Muslims around the world are deprived of their basic needs. The scenario only worsens in times of financial and political turbulence. There is a desperate need to find sources of funding to rescue people from their miseries and offer sustainable solutions. Zakat has great potential to meet the funding needs. This chapter argues that zakat contributions will be amplified if corporate entities pay zakat as legal persons or on behalf of their Muslim shareholders. This chapter proposes development of a zakat calculation so...

  • Shari'ah_analysis_of_zakat_on_sukuk_Mahadi_Mezbah_Moutaz.jpg.jpg
  • Research Monograph


  • Authors: Mahadi Ahmad; Mezbah Uddin Ahmed; Moutaz Abojeib (2021)

  • Sukuk in its contemporary form as a financial instrument has gained prominence only over the last one to two decades. Like a share, a sukuk is defined as an instrument representing undivided ownership over the underlying assets. Naturally, the question arises whether sukuk are subject to the same zakat rulings as shares. Accordingly, this research has identified the similarities between shares and Sukuk. The zakat rulings applicable to shares are also identified, and the research has made an attempt to apply those rulings in the context of sukuk. However, the research has identified the peculiarities of sukuk as it is currently practiced in the global market and provided fresh insight...

  • Istijrar_an_alternative_solution_to_murabahah-based_import_financing_facilities_Marjan_Mezbah.jpg.jpg
  • Research Monograph


  • Authors: Marjan Muhammad; Mezbah Uddin Ahmed; Muhamad Nasir Haron; Aniza Rahaya Zulkifli (2020)

  • Islamic banks provide similar trade finance facilities to those of conventional banks. They intermediate between buyers (i.e., importers) and sellers (i.e., exporters), act as a custodian of documents, and provide means to reduce payment risks via different payment terms (e.g., open account, documentary collection and letter of credit (LC)). They also provide financing - as need be - to help with working capital tied to the trade transactions. This research focuses only on financing by Islamic banks to importers that involve LCs. Different underlying Shari'ah contracts are used for import financing facilities under LC, the most common being the murabahah contract. At the time of sal...

  • Protection_of_investment_account_holders_in_Islamic_banks_in_Malaysia_Noor_Mezbah.pdf.jpg
  • Newsletter & Bulletin


  • Authors: Noor Suhaida Kasri; Mezbah Uddin Ahmed (2017)

  • The Islamic banking industry in Malaysia is governed by the Islamic Financial Services Act 2013 (IFSA). This legislation marks another step in the evolution of the Islamic banking industry in Malaysia. Among its unique components, it re-classifies deposittaking products into two, namely Islamic deposits and investment accounts. The distinction has brought about a significant impact on the role that Islamic banks have traditionally been playing. The move from purely a credit intermediary to a mixed credit-and-investment intermediary is expected to promote real economic growth and development. In IFSA, investment account is defined as an account under which money is paid and accepted fo...
