  • islamic_financial_institutions_remedy_current_economic_financial_crises_mohsin_2012.pdf.jpg
  • Industry Article


  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2012-05-01)

  • Islam provides many institutions within the structure of Islamic economic system which if studied carefully can be put into practice in order to solve the current global economic and financial crisis. The current global economic and financial crises, together with the Arab Spring and the Arab Awakening in the 21st century, offers a good opportinity for Muslims to revive their current economic system according to the guidance from the Quran and the Sunnah: not only to solve the current crises but to revive the perfect system that Allah (swt) sent to serve all mankind in the best way as mentioned in the Quran (Surat al-Maidah 5:3). In view of that, Islam is not just a religion of worshi...

  • Academic Proceeding


  • Authors: Cizakca, Murat (2011)

  • In this article I will attempt to explain long term causes of decline of the Islamic world with specific reference to the Ottoman empire. The emphasis on the Ottoman empire is due to the enormous territories this empire controlled until the twentieth century as well as the survival of the rich Turkish archives. These archives contain some 400 million documents and are unique in the Islamic world. During the period 1453 to 1606, from the conquest of Constantinople to the treaty of Sitva-Torek (Zitvatorok), the Ottoman Empire emerged as a world power. As a world power it was capable of directly challenging Spain in the Western Mediterranean and supporting its enemies, the newly emerging...

  • Authors: Lahsasna, Ahcene (2010)

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: 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...

  • Authors: Alhabshi, Syed Othman (2011-02-21)

  • Ekonomi merupakan asas hidup yang amat penting dan bermakna. Masalah ekonomi boleh menjelma dalam berbagai cara. Ketidak seimbangan ekonomi menonjolkan perasaan negatif antara mereka yang berada dan yang tidak berada. Paras harga yang tinggi juga boleh menjadi masalah besar. Inflasi boleh menghakis pendapatan terutama mereka yang berpendapatan rendah. Pengangguran juga akan membawa akibat yang buruk kepada negara. Yang paling penting ialah kadar kemiskinan yang semakin meninggi boleh menjajaskan kesetabilan sosial dan politik negara.

  • In the last decade, Malaysia has witnessed a growing number of corporate takeover exercises. The growth in the asset management industry meant that the role of institutional investors have become more important in these corporate takeovers. Neither the synergistic gains hypothesis nor the information effect hypothesis were able to fully explain the market responses to takeover announcements and the gains derived from corporate acquisitions on whether the offer is successful ...

  • methods_methodologies_fiqh_islamic_economics_yusufsaleem.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Saleem, Muhammad Yusuf (2010)

  • This paper intends to examine the methods of reasoning that are employed in Fiqh and critically discuss their adoption in Islamic economics. The paper argues that the methods used in Fiqh are mainly designed to find out whether or not a certain act is permissible or prohibited. Islamic economics, on the other hand, is a social science. Like any other social science its proper unit of analysis is the society itself. Methodologies of Fiqh and Islamic economics also differ as the former focuses on prescriptions. It prescribes what an individual should do or avoid. In contrast, Islamic economics is more concerned with describing economic phenomena. While Fiqh, especially worship (Ibadat) ...
