  • Book


  • Authors: Lahsasna, Ahcene (2010)

  • This book provides an economic analysis of the earliest Islamic society, focusing on the policies of the Messenger of Islam (Sawa) and his successors during the first four formative decades of Islam. The author uses historical economic data, facts, and evidences that are reported from the period, both prior to and after establishment of the Islamic State, to explore the economic relations, policies, and models that were in practice and applied at that time.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Masih, Rumi; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (1996)

  • The main purpose of this paper is to discern the dynamic causal chain (in the Granger (temporal) sense rather than in the structural sense) among real output, money, interest rate, inflation and the exchange rate in the context of a small Asian developing economy, such as Indonesia. The methodology employed uses various unit root tests and Johansen's cointegration test followed by vector error-correction modelling, variance decompositions, and impulse response functions in order to capture both the within-sample and out-of-sample Granger causal chain among macroeconomic activity. Given the inward-oriented growth strategy of this small developing economy, where the real output was vuln...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Jones, Brad; Chien-Ting, Lin; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2004)

  • This study investigates the intraday and daily pricing behavior of UK interest rate and equity index futures contracts. The paper initially examines the response of Short Sterling, Long Gilt, and FTSE100 to the release of scheduled macroeconomic announcements before employing dynamic time series techniques in order to reveal the nature of causal transmission patterns between these variables. In brief, short-term interest rates were found to be highly sensitive to indicators of prevailing economic conditions. However, the release of data important in the formation of inflationary expectations had a relatively subdued impact on long-term rates. Announcement effects appear somewhat ambig...

  • Macroeconomic_policy_trilemma_in_open_economies_mansur.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2005)

  • Right now Malaysia has the major economic fundamentals more or less right (excepting the budget deficit). The inflation rate is low (1.2%), unemployment rate is relatively low (3.5%), current account balance is significantly positive (13.7%), foreign reserves are growing and comfortable and the savings rate is high. Given Malaysia's current economic and political strength and the experiences of many other open economies, it appears to me that as long as the macroeconomic discipline as well as the ongoing financial and corporate sector restructuring developments are maintained, Malaysia can enhance its FDI inflows, growth rate of output and employment significantly by continuing with t...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Aysan, Ahmet F.; Disli, Mustafa; Ng, Adam Boon Ka; Ozturk, Huseyin (2017)

  • Events such as the 'credit crunch', 'bank run', 'financial contagion', 'flight to quality' and 'systemic risks' have widely transpired in recent times. One important dimension permeating these events is the dynamic link between macroeconomic shocks and banks' behaviour. Economic crises experienced by five East Asian countries in the late 1990s were accompanied by financial sector problems. The Great Recession of the late 2000s also corresponded to heightened solvency risks affecting over-leveraged banks and financial institutions in many developed countries. In a world of imperfect information, adverse macroeconomic shocks could weaken firms' balance sheets, diminish bank capital and ...

  • Microfinance involves the provision of financial services for those too poor to have access to banks. Although microfinance schemes have been operational since the 1960s, they mostly involve conventional finance whereas many low-income Muslims would prefer to have shari'a-compliant finance. The aim of this chapter is to explore how microfinace could be provided on a shari'a-compliant basis and what instruments and structures could be used. The literature in this area has been very limited, but there have been a number of recent notable contributiions indicating the increasing interest in the topic.

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2016)

  • Wakaf, or a religious endowment for a charitable cause, is a lesser-known component of Islamic wealth management. It can be viewed as a way of doing good, giving back to society, or earning pahala (divine reward). These endowments have usually involved immovable assets such as buildings and land, but they can also be in the form of movable assets such as furniture and jewellery - as long as they are not forbidden in Islam. Setting up a cash wakaf, or trust fund, is another way to make an endowment. Cash wakaf, which is based on the concept of mudarabah, has been around since the 8th century. But the Islamic authorities have recently established a legal framework for such endowments in...

  • The last decade has witnessed significant growth of fund management companies in the Southeast Asian region, and Malaysia has shown immense potential in this area. The expansion of the middle income class, outstanding talent and abundant natural resources have contributed to this growth. Despite significant developments in the recent past, the mutual fund industry in Malaysia is relatively small compared with other market in Malaysia, particularly in the area of Islamic fund administration, requires a comprehensive financial ecosystem that is globally competitive.

  • The sum of global Islamic assets under management (AUM) is relatively small compared with the overall market. In the third quarter of 2015, Islamic AUM represented approximately 1% of the global market or US$60.2 billion; nevertheless, Malaysia contributes the largest portion with a total value of US$27.2 billion, according to data from the International Shariah Research Academy for Islamic Finance and Zawya. Chart 2 illustrates the position of Malaysia as a market leader for Islamic fund management. Growth in this industry, even if it’s small, would be a significant boost to the Malaysian economy and crucial when we need to diversify our economy in order to reduce the over-reliance o...

  • The on-off-on again-off again Malaysia-US Free Trade Agreement (MUSFTA) is a proposed treaty between Malaysia and the United States of America. Initial negotiations, in fact started way back in 2005 and as all other Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), the treaty aims to liberalise each other markets to parties of the agreement and directly encourage trade between the two countries. Malaysia has a commendable and enviable economic growth and development. Our macroeconomic policies have always been designed to create a more liberalized and fair international trade environment.

  • The Maldives is a 100% Muslim nation where Islamic finance is emerging as a proxy to the existing conventional system which has been in the country from an immemorial time. The first form of Islamic finance that was adopted in the country was Takaful. In 2003, the first Takaful company was established in the country under a conventional insurance license. In 2011 only, Islamic banking and Islamic capital market services were introduced to the country. Since then Islamic finance in the country has been spreading like wild-fire. The government has also realized the importance of Islamic finance in resolving economic and financial problems. As such Islamic finance has been considered as ...

  • Wealth and property are the pride and splendor of humans, in so, those who are willing to donate could be considered as those seeking Allah's (s.w.t) blessing and mercy. Therefore, the practice of establishing and donating to waqf is an important medium to draw oneself closer to Allah (s.w.t). By willingly giving away things that are most loved, one is deemed to get Allah's (s.w.t) blessings. Apart from being a source of development for the economy of Muslims, this practice is strongly encouraged in Islamic doctrine given the benefits it guarantees in the hereafter and this world ...

  • Waqf is described as an act of dedicating a corpus of property or financial assets in perpetuity for the cause of Allah SWT. The ownership of the property or assets is transferred to Allah SWT, but the benefits are dedicated to the poor, sick, marginalized segments of society, or any other virtuous causes.

  • On 8 March 2008 (GE 2008) Malaysians unexpectedly delivered a stunning blow to Malaysia's long-standing ruling coalition, Barisan Nasional (BN), at the twelfth general election. Although it won the election, BN lost its psychologically important two-thirds majority in parliament which allows it to change the Federal Constitution at will. The blow was all the more devastating as the Anwar Ibrahim-led informal coalition of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR/People's Iustice Party), Democratic Action Party (DAP) and Parti Se-Islam Malaysia (PAS/Pan Islamic Party of Malaysia) managed to form state governments in almost all states in the developed western parts of Peninsular Malaysia with citizens...
