  • Industry Article


  • Authors: Rosly, Saiful Azhar (2018)

  • Ever since the establishment of Islamic banks in the 1970s, the difficulty in executing actual buy and sell transactions as the Quran commanded in the verse "Allah has permitted al-bay but prohibits riba" (Al-Baqarah 275) has spurred the industry into using questionable products that resemble interest-bearing loans as evident now in tawaruq munazzam and earlier in bay al-enah. Much of this unfortunate development in Islamic banking has to do with its deposit-taking function. Doing so requires the bank to follow stringent Basel Accord capital requirement against any risky positions it took in the business such as equity, leasing and trading positions. The trading business, namely buy a...

  • Authors: N., Shalini; Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Kaur, Harpaljit (2012)

  • This study is set out to investigate the linkages between Economic Growth and Human Capital by Gender and Level of Education. The panel data was averaged at 7 points based on a sample of 62 countries spanning over the years 1970 to 1999. The Dynamic Panel System Generalized Method of Moments (SGMM) was employed on an Autoregressive Distributed Lag Model (ARDL) to analyze the effect of gender on the economic growth, which is the best method given the short time period and large cross sectional characteristic. Control variables such as gross capital formation, export volume, population and year effects were also decoded in order to obtain a more accurate and robust result trend. The dat...

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda; Alhabshi, Syed Othman (2016)

  • The failure of interest based programmes, such as micro-finance and anti-poverty programmes, in assisting the destitute, eradicating poverty and reducing income inequality encouraged the authors to study in depth the alternative financial institutions to interest/riba that can solve such problems rather than harming individuals, communities, societies and countries. This raises the question of whether the different Islamic financial institutions can eradicate poverty, reduce inequalities and provide microfinance with zero-interest. The answer to this will be presented throughout this paper.

  • Working capital is important for any firm and its administration is acknowledged as an essential of corporate administration. The main objective of working capital management is to choose the appropriate levels of the working capital components in order to ensure that the firm is able to meet its operating expenses and mitigate risks of default on payment of short-term obligations. In addition, working capital management is important for a firm’s survival because of its effects on a firm’s profitability and risk, and consequently its value (Gimeno, Folta et al. 1997) (Gunay and Kesimli 2011) and (Deloof 2003). Failure to manage working capital in prudent manner may lead to liquidity ...

  • Studies of Islamic banks' profitability are an important tool towards improving performance, evaluating bank operations and determining management plan to help in increasing the chance for the banks to survive in competitive markets. The robust growth in financing and investment activities across most jurisdictions in various real sectors has helped Islamic banks to record generous asset growth rates in their balance sheets. However, the returns become subdued during the financial crisis of years of 2008-2009, reaching lows of ROA 0.74% and ROE 6.16% in 2009 (IFSB, 2014). Over the last twenty years, market conditions in banking sector have undergone extensive changes on both demand an...

This study investigates the index effect at constituent stocks level and index funds level using Shari'ah blue-chip indices and their corresponding i-ETFs.

  • Islamic banking industry has unprecedentedly witnessed a rapid growth since its inception four decades back in the late 1970s. However, the prospect of this flourishing industry is fast becoming gloomy in recent years. The growth of Islamic banking almost matches the conventional banking, and their products are hardly distinguishable. Although the market growth slows down in the aftermath of the global financial crises in 2008, the Islamic banking market has witnessed increasing competition. Islamic banks become more competitive and they managed to increase their market share meanwhile, conventional banks have successfully responded to the challenge by launching Islamic windows and su...

  • The issues of earning management has received attention from practitioners and academicians since the last couple of decades in banking sector. It is evident that bank managers practice the discretion in estimating loan/finance loss provisions for various motives such as reducing earnings variability (Agarwal, Chomsisengphet, Liu & Rhee, 2007; Kanagaretnam, 2004). Majority of the studies have been focusing on conventional banks, and only a few studies have focussed on Islamic banks, for instance, Zoubi and Al-Khazali (2007) and Othman and Mersni (2014).
