  • Over the past decades much effort and research has gone into establishing a viable set of Islamic financial institutions. An area of utmost importance, which still has gaping holes, is the development of instruments for government financing on a global level. Most developing countries including the bulk of Muslim nations, are heaviliy indebted with high reliance on multilateral financing primarily based on high interest rates. This vicious cycle of interest rates and debt have stunted the growth of these nations and worsened the conditions of the masses. This research brings to the forefront the concept of an equity in nature GDP linked paper, which allows for enhanced risk sharing ba...

  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E.; Roehner, Bertrand M.; Qing-hai, Wang (2017)

  • The expression "wage transition" refers to the fact that over the past three decades in almost all developed economies wage increases have leveled off. There has been a widening divergence and decoupling between wages on the one hand and GDP per capita on the other hand. Yet, in China wages and GDP per capita climbed in sync (at least up to now). In the first part of the paper we present comparative statistical evidence which measures the extent of the wage transition effect. In a second part we consider the reasons of this phenomenon, in particular we explain how the transfers of labor from low productivity sectors (such as agriculture) to high productivity sectors (such as manufactu...

Data were collected through various methods, i.e. interviews, document reviews and direct observations. Findings – The findings show that ABC shows more efficient management and greater transparency and accountability than XYZ due to the presence of Islamically committed professionals in the former, despite the better accounting informat...

  • Islam strongly endorses socio-economic and welfare-friendly practices, supporting and promoting philanthropic and charitable deeds. The concept of waqf in Shari'a is regarded as an empirical embodiment of this very preposition. Waqf derives its origin from approximately fourteen centuries back, and is known to have been first practised by the Prophet himself for public utility or social causes.

  • Philanthropic foundations are known in the Islamic world as waqf or habs. Whereas the latter term is used in North Africa and has also entered into the French language, the former is known, with slight variations, in the rest of the Islamic world and has entered into English. The word waqf (pl. awqaf) is derived from the Arabic root verb waqafa, which means to cause a thing to stop and stand still.

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2018)

  • The waqf-share scheme is a 21st century Islamic social finance tool that has been used successfully in Muslim and Muslim-minority countries (Cizakca, 2000). It is a fundraising scheme organized by a charitable institution that issues "waqf-shares" for sale to different contributors for various projects. Since a waqf-share is a movable waqf, it has to follow the strict conditions of waqf in terms of its irrevocability, its inalienability, and its perpetuity. This means that contributors cannot sell or transfer their waqf shares; they can only receive and hold a waqf-share certificate as evidence of theircontributions to the project if the created waqf is public waqf.

  • This paper highlights the practice of waqf-shares in five Muslim and Muslim minority countries for the last two decades. With the urge needs for capital to re-develop the old waqf properties in the different countries it is much recommended to introduce the concept of waqf-share as fund raising to improve and to upgrade the current situation of these properties so that they can deliver the suspected services needed in the different societies. Besides, proposing this type of waqf-share will motivate founders from all categories of people to contribute directly in re-developing the old waqf properties with the least amount of money they can afford to give and seeking the compound rew...

  • Serving humanity must be an objective of all human beings. There are many ways in which humanity can be served. One of the most convenient ways to do this is via donation. The most critical challenge facing the donors is uncertainty in knowing whether the donation is spent on the intended purpose. The lack of transparency by trustees managing donation funds have created lack of trust among the donors when it comes to donating for humanity. The Islamic concept of Waqf in which donations are made for noble causes faces the same issue as well. This is the main reason why Waqf is declining in today's era, where finding donors is a challenge. According to reports, Singapore-based fintech f...

  • This paper is aimed to examine the impact of bail-out policy carried out following the financial crisis which hit the Malaysian economy some years ago. Using panel estimation methods, this study tries to analyze the relationship between firms‟ investments and their cash flows before and after the crisis period. Theoretically, the relationship becomes tight due to the crisis. This tight relationship indicates the existence of severe financial constraints faced by existing firms. Such relationship is on the contrast to the loose relationship prior the crisis when the financial market was liberalized through various deregulations including the interest rates deregulation. However, to com...

  • The 1997-1998 Asian financial crisis affected the balance sheets of many Malaysian firms, which increased the financial constraints on such firms. To counter the impacts, the Malaysian government carried out various directed policy measures known collectively as the bail-out policy. The present paper examines the success of the policy to reduce the financial constraints. The present paper uses panel estimation methods to analyze the relationship between firms’ investments and their cash flows. The sample of study is split into two subsamples, consisting of the periods before and after the financial crisis, respectively. The success of the policy is measured based upon the easing of fi...

  • Islamic banking is unique and different from its conventional counterpart. This essentially means that we cannot carry out an apple to apple comparison between the two systems. Islamic banking is a system rooted in Islamic ideology. Overseeing of the whole system, thus naturally rests in the hands of those scholars who were educated in Islamic Shariah. This is the reason why several of the countries have established domestic Shariah advisory bodies, to monitor the administration of Islamic banking and the structuring of its products.

  • Fund managers and investors began many years ago to take into account the Islamic component of the GCC stock markets in order to benefit from the diversification opportunities offered by the Islamic stock markets for their investments in equity markets. This can improve the return and reduce the risk associated with their investments. However, these investors are also concerned about linkage aspects of those markets in relation with the international ones regarding integration and shock transmission, in particular, during the financial crisis.

  • A series of financial crises in recent times resulted in an increase in contagion and correlations between assets making investments in conventional securities a little more unsafe. Therefore, global investors started looking for alternative assets to diversify their portfolios. One of the alternative assets that has been growing very fast over the recent period is the Islamic financial sectors which has been growing at an average rate of 15 percent to 20 percent per annum over the past decade. The risk-return profile of Islamic products, such as Islamic stocks, is expected to be different from that of conventional stocks. Available in physical copy only (Call Number: BP 173.75 H23...

Wealth is owned in different proportions by individuals, entities and the state. Wealth can be defined broadly as an item that has some economic substance, a value such that the wealth can be used for several intended purposes, in modern economics, for consumption as theoretically glorified by the Utility Maximization Theorem (Arrow-Debreu).

  • This chapter is written with a view to explain how stock prices react to the issuance of a new kind of debt instrument (the sukuk debt certificates) in two stock markets in the period 2001-15. The existing classical corporate finance theory considers share prices' response to capital issuances to be crucial to any understanding on how to maximize the firm value and thus the shareholder wealth. How this is achieved has been debated extensively and deliberated elaborately by academics over six decades. It stands to reason, though, that maximizing firm value requires effective investment decisions which in turn necessitates access to a valuable source of capital.
