  • Waqf_development_in_Malaysia_Akram_Fares.pdf.jpg
  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Mohamad Akram Laldin; Sharifah Zubaidah Syed Abdul-Kader; Fares Djafri (2022)

  • The practice of waqf has existed in Malaysia since the coming of Islam to the Malay Archipelago in the 9th century (CE) (Arnold, 1913). The early awqaf properties were in the form of prayer rooms (surau), mosques, cemeteries and subsequently, madrasahs (Dahlan & Kamarudin, 2006). Mahamood divides the history of waqf in Malaysia into three phases, namely, pre-colonial Malaya, colonial Malaya and postindependence Malaya (Mahamood, 2006) but notes that there has not been much research done on the pre-colonial period in order to confirm the first awqaf properties in Malaya. Based on the premise that the earliest awqaf created were in the form of mosques, the earliest official mosque is sa...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Mohamad Akram Laldin; Fares Djafri (2021)

  • The concept of sustainable development has been articulated for the first time in the Brundtland Report, also called "Our Common Future" published in 1987 by the World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED) and supported by the United Nations (UN). According to Brundtland Report, Sustainable Development is defined as "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." In 2015 the United Nations has introduced the new global development agenda for 2015 through 2030 and adopted a set of seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the action of the member states. According to UNDP, the SDGs as ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Fares Djafri; Mohamad Akram Laldin; Abdelkader Laallam (2021)

  • Islamic finance is considered one of the fastest-growing segments of the global financial industry. Over the last four decades, Islamic finance has expanded globally to western and other non-Muslim countries. This paper aims to explore the potential for China to tap into the Islamic finance market and the challenges that may face the implementation of Islamic finance there. This study adopts a qualitative method of inquiry and utilizes the inductive method and content analysis to build comprehensive knowledge that would assist in exploring the significance and potential benefits that China may gain from the adoption of Islamic finance. The study reveals that China has a huge opportuni...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohamad Akram Laldin; Fares Djafri (2019)

  • Islamic finance has grown considerably over the last four decades and has a global reach. It is considered one of the fastest-growing segments of the global financial industry. One of the biggest challenges for Islamic finance in the next decade is in financial technology (known as Fintech). In the digital world, traditional financial practice will be left behind. This paper examines the phenomenon of financial innovation and technology in Islamic finance and its Shariah parameters. The research adopts a qualitative approach employing the inductive method to trace primary and secondary data on the topic and the descriptive method to describe the emergence of fintech in the Islamic fin...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Farrukh Habib; Mohamad Akram Laldin; Ahcene Lahsasna (2015)

  • Secondary markets are vital for the development of Islamic capital markets (ICMs) (Aziz, 2007). They facilitate the reselling of securities among investors, thus adding liquidity to these instruments (Mishkin, 2004: 26-27). Besides this basic role, secondary markets assist in reducing average cost of capital; bringing about a rational representation of the pricing of securities in primary as well as secondary markets; facilitating the exchange of investment risks; evaluating the performance of private and public sector, and mitigating information asymmetry (Ahmed, 1995; Al-Eshkar, 1995; El-Gari, 1993; Mishkin, 2004). However, secondary market trading of Islamic securities involves va...

  • Developing_Islamic_finance_in_the_framework_of_maqasid_al-Shariah_Akram.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohamad Akram Laldin; Hafas Furqani (2013)

  • The paper aims to investigate the dimensions of maqasid al-Shari'ah in Islamic finance by exploring the ends (maqasid) and the means (wasa'il). Those would clarify the nature and goals of Islamic finance as well as its directional development. Using literature in English and Arabic sources in the area of maqasid al-Shari'ah, as well as from the reading of the primary sources (the Qur'anic texts/nusus), the paper attempts to delineate the dimensions that would constitute the ends (maqasid) and the means (wasa'il) in Islamic finance. The paper explicates three specific ends (maqasid) in Islamic finance, namely wealth circulation, fair and transparent financial practices and justice at t...

  • The_foundations_of_Islamic_finance_and_the_maqasid_al-Shariah_requirements_Akram.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohamad Akram Laldin; Hafas Furqani (2013)

  • The emergence of Islamic finance as a system of thought and practice is timely in the midst of world crisis and the uncertain proposals for solving it. It is hoped that Islamic finance offers a coherent perspective for understanding real economic problems as well as a genuine alternative to the very foundations of how economics and finance should be managed to actualize human prosperity. In addressing those expectations and challenges, sufficient attention to the foundations should be given to develop solid conceptual scheme of a new finance in Islamic perspective and to resolve the tensions in the current development. This paper attempts to discuss the foundations of Islamic finance...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohamad Akram Laldin (2012)

  • Sukuk are active Islamic finance instruments offered in various jurisdictions and have experienced various events in the recent years. Several sukuk defaults in 2009 highlighted a number of Shari'ah and legal issues that are necessary to be discussed. As a part of the prerequisites to fulfil Shari'ah requirements, compliance to the relevant laws is also a necessity. Among the issues that will be touched upon is ownership of the asset of the sukuk which will include discussion about 'al Qabd' (taking possession). Next, rights of the sukuk holders will be discussed to see whether their interests are well protected and in this context the concept of asset backed will be differentiated fr...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohamad Akram Laldin; Hafas Furqani (2012)

  • Islamic finance attempts to rearrange the modern financial practices to be in line with Shari'ah principles and requirements. The industry has grown considerably over the last three decades and has a global reach. We contend that this trend is being driven not only by operational compliance with the requirements of Islamic law but also because of the objectives and values it promotes. Islamic banking and finance (IBF) was intended to bring an Islamic vision of the economy to the financial sphere in an effort to realize human wellbeing (maslahah) and a just and fair order of society. Financial practices are to be arranged to meet those objectives. Adherence to maqasid al-Shari'ah as th...
