  • Authors: Saleem, Muhammad Yusuf (2016)

  • The paper is a critical examination of the recent judicial and regulatory developments in Malaysia which saw the transition of absolution (ibra') from a discretionary power of the creditor to a mandatory rebate governed by the Central Bank's regulations. It compares and contrasts the Malaysian Regulations on ibra' with the resolutions issued by the Council of the Islamic Fiqh Academy and offers a critical evaluation of juristic opinions on ibra' and da' wata'jjal. The jurisprudential methods of analogy (qiyas) and juristic preference (istihsan) are employed to examine the application of ibra' to long-term home financing contracts. The paper argues that claiming full credit price upon ...

  • Authors: Saleem, Muhammad Yusuf; Abozaid, Abdulazeem (2013)

  • In Islam, a loan (qard) is considered a gratuitous contract, and providing a loan to a person in need is a recommended (mandub) act for which a lender is rewarded. The gratuitous nature of the loan contract is emphasised in various hadiths which also prohibit the lender from deriving any stipulated benefit from the loan he has provided. Loans that generate conditional benefit to the lender are considered usurious. The practice of usury (riba) is inextricably tied to the loan and debt where a lender charges the borrower an additional amount. The main focus of this research paper is to provide a critical discussion on the ruling that prohibits the lender from deriving conditional benefi...

  • Authors: Yousafzai, Essa Omar (2018)

  • This paper aims to investigate whether Shari'ah stock index, exchange rates and macroeconomic forces in Japan have any long run relationship or not. If the relationship exists, does the Shari'ah stock index lead or lag? The paper is likely to be the first study that investigates the causal relationship of aforementioned variables and the Shari'ah Index in Japan. Current literature on the topic in different countries gives either contradictory or inclusive results. This study will try to fill two gaps, one relating to Japan, and another relating to Islamic Indices. It employed quarterly data from 2007 to 2017. Auto-Regressive Distributed lag (ARDL) time series technique is applied to c...

  • Authors: Hasan, Zubair (2008)

  • Recently commodity murabaha has run into disrepute due to court decisions going against the use of this instrument in Islamic banks. This brief note argues that at fault has been the structure of contracts and the excessive use of the instrument. In principle, commodity murabaha is doubtless rooted deep in the Islamic Shari'ah.

  • Authors: Muneeza, Aishath; Jin, Zichu; Abdul Razak, Iman Najwa (2018)

  • Islamic banks are still relying on debt-like modes of financing since most equity based finances need long term commitment. The basic principle of Islamic banking is the sharing of profit and loss and the prohibition of riba (interest).Additionally, PLS arrangements have been specifically acknowledged as ideal modes of financing in Islamic finance. But to date, the actual practice of Islamic banking has been far removed from these models. Nearly all Islamic banks, investment companies, and investment funds offer trade and project finance based on mark-up, commissioned manufacturing, or on leasing bases. There is not much difference in substance between IFIs and conventional financial ...

  • This article aims at examining the concept of Hawalah and its contemporary applications in banking sector. For this purpose, the authors examine the conceptual and literal meaning of Hawalah and scrutinise its applications in two Malaysian banks. While Bank A is a dual bank which offers both conventional and Islamic banking, Bank B is a full-fledged Islamic bank. Results indicated that there is a general lack of awareness about the concept of Hawalah used by both banks. Although there is strong awareness of Islamic Shariah's strong prohibition on taking interest, the staff members are uninformed about the underlying concepts of Hawalah. In addition, the authors found that the hawalah-...
