  • Islam proposes that the banking systems that operate on the basis of an ex ante fixed rate of interest be replaced by a profit-sharing system in which the rate of return to the financial resources is not known and is not fixed prior to the undertaking of the transaction. While in Islam interest is forbidden, trade and profits are permissible and in fact encouraged. The papers in this volume all address one or more of the basic questions at the theoretical level. They represents a start in the attempt to introduce rigor into the analysis of Islamic banking and finance, thereby clarifying the nature of the basic relationships underslying the system.

  • Rosly, Saiful Azhar (1989)

  • This paper introduces some theoretical aspects of Islamic banking asset management strategies for reducing economic instability. Since public welfare deteriorates during periods of inflation and unemployment, the procyclical behavior of modern interest-based commercial banks is known to aggravate these fluctuations and ipso facto produce an even more severe impact on welfare. The paper will show that equity-based Islamic banks contain some structural features that reduce these procyclical tendencies and therefore shield public welfare from further deterioration.

  • Baaquie, Belal E. (1992)

  • The U(1) Kac-Moody character functions are derived from a path integral expression. It is shown that point-split regularization of the Virasoro generator also exactly regularizes the path integral. An exact derivation of the Weyl-Kac denominator is then given for an arbitrary Lie group using the semiclassical approximation and the results of the U(1) calculation.

  • Pembangunan merupakan proses meningkatkan taraf hidup manusia dari peringkat yang rendah kepada peringkat yang tinggi. Taraf hidup yang dimaksudkan merangkumi aspek jasmani (termasuk material) dan rohani. Aspek jasmani termasuklah kesihatan, kekuatan dan kecergasan fizkal serta kecerdasan pemikiran. Ia juga meliputi segala sesuatu yang diperlukan untuk menghasilkan kesihatan, kekuatan dan kecergasan fizikal serta kecerdasan pemikiran tadi. Bagi mencapai taraf pembangunan jasmani yang lebih tinggi sudah tentu memerlukan kemajuan material yang biasanya diukur oleh alat-alat pengukur sosio-ekonomi, seperti pendapatan, peringkat pendidikan, pengambilan kalori, jenis rumah, kenderaan, dan sebagainya. Malahan,konsep jasmani ypng lebih luas ini bukan setakat merangkumi aspek ekonomi dan sosial...

  • Umat Islam dikatakan sebagai umat yang "seimbang" atau "ummatan & wasatan" iaitu umat yang tidak berlebih-lebihan dalam semua sifat dengan maksud tidak terlalu amat kekurangan dalam sesuatu atau terlalu amat berlebihan dalam sesuatu. Ini adalah kerana Islam itu sendiri merupakan agama yang berdasarkan kepada kebijaksanaan yang amali dan ianya adalah agama amali. Masyarakat Islam harus menjadi contoh bagi umat manusia dalam menegakkan kebenaran dan keadilan supaya layak menjadi saksi kepada umat manusia, sebagaimana Rasulullah (saw) akan menjadi saksi ke atasnya. Atas dasar ini, umat Islam sebenarnya bertanggungjawab untuk hidup dalam keadaan yang seimbang dan juga bertanggungjawab untuk memimpin masyarakat manusia berdasarkan kebenaran dan keadilan dan bukan hany...

  • We study the low energy behavior of the four-dimensional nonlinear sigma model with anomaly using the 2+ expansion and renormalization group methods. It is shown that the theory has a non-trivial ir stable fixed point, in addition to the usual trivial fixed point. If pions happen to exist in the non-trivial phase, their propagator would scale at low energies with anomalous exponents.

  • Work' from the traditional Islamic point of view is not distinguished from the word 'action' in its most general sense and is treated by the Divine Law (al-Shari'ah) under the same category. There are two Arabic terms for work namely 'amal and sun'a. The first term means 'action' in general as constrasted with 'knowledge' while the second means 'making' or 'producing' something in the artistic and artisanal sense. By extension the term sina'ah or sana'ah from the root word sun'a is also used to mean 'industry' in the modern sense. Human beings perform two distinct types of functions in relation to the world about them. They either act upon or within that world of make things by moulding and remoulding material a...

  • One of the principles which determines the Islamic world view is justice. The other two being Unity (Tawhid) and Vicegerency (Khilafah). Unity signifies the unique relationships between man and his Creator, Allah; between man and his fellow beings and between man and his environment. Vicegerency determines the definitive role man has to play on this earth. This includes his optimal use of the endowed resources, which he holds in trust, for the benefit of himself as well as for his dependents. Since Islam encompasses all aspects of human life, justice is naturally applied to economics as much as to social, politics, as well as to other aspects of life.

  • In a recent Seminar on Business Ethics: Ledaership and Corporate Responsibility which was jointly organised by the Havard Club of Malaysia and Permodalan Nasional Berhad, the right Honourable Prime Minister, Dato Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, once again reiterated the importance of high ethical standards to check crimes. Many corporate and professional association leaders expressed their support for such a timely call by the Prime Minister. Some claimed that their organisations have already instituted codes of ethics for their members. Concern for moral decadence and lack of ethical standards among certain sections of our society has been repeatedly expressed by a few of our leaders, notably the Prime Minister. He has already listed it as one of the required ingredients towards achieving a...

  • If the Government is not sensitive to the increasing occurrence of social ills in our midst, if the educational institutions do not want to take any more steps to improve the behaviour of students, if parents still insists on protecting the rights of their children when teachers catch them doing some mischief, if social organisations do not feel obliged to contribute towards curbing these ills, if business and corporate organisations do not consider it part of their social responsibility to the community they are making their profits from to extend a helping hand in this matter, if individuals in society keep on pointing their fingers to someone else instead of making the necessary initiatives towards solving part of the problem; in other words if everyone in society is completely indif...
