  • Automatically, risk shifting is absent in an ideal Islamic financial system (The Kuala Lumpur Declaration, 2012). Creating an opportunity for shared prosperity is a litmus test of the authenticity of Islamic banking. The present formation of Islamic finance has grown out of conventional finance and it uses its instruments.

  • 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.

  • Authors: 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.

  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2014)

  • Islamic banking is visibly on the rise across the globe, supported by a growing clientele, both Muslim and non-Muslim, although it has yet to demonstrate that it is a viable alternative to conventional banking. Islamic banking is still under the shadow of conventional banking, not only with products that are strikingly similar to those offered by conventional banks, but also with conventional banks having a strong presence as stakeholders in the Islamic banking industry. Islamic banking is still in the early phase of a presumably long evolutionary process, apparently stuck in the initial phase of product differentiation. Islamic banks are competing with conventional banks rather than ...

  • Important changes have taken place in the Sudanese banking industry since 1989. The transformation of the banking industry to conform to the Islamic principles has put the spotlight on the performance of the Islamic banks in Sudan. This study investigates the X-efficiency (technical and allocative) of these banks. The study used the basic Stochastic Frontier Approach (SFA). This is accomplished by decomposing the error term into two components, namely random noise (vi) and possible inefficiency (ui). The empirical results tend to suggest that banks in the sample had low levels of X-efficiency. This implied that the Sudanese Islamic banks were not optimizing their inputs usage. However...
