  • Authors: Iqbal, Zamir; Mirakhor, Abbas (2013)

  • Islamic finance has been practiced in some form since the inception of Islam, its practice in modern financial markets became recognized only in the 1980s, and began to represent a meaningful share of global financial activity only around the beginning of this century.
