  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Tajul Arifin, Asma'; Arshad, Nur Aishah; Muneeza, Aishath (2018)

  • The emergence of innovative digital financial technologies, namely blockchain and crowdfunding, indicates new ways to reach the poor and economically vulnerable groups. This paper contributes to the emerging literature on financial technology by presenting the case of crowdfunding in financial inclusion. The rationale behind this inquiry is to demonstrate the relevance of crowdfunding to financial inclusion, and how might blockchain technology fuel the development of crowdfunding. This paper also constitutes one of the first attempts to analyse crowdfunding in Malaysia and Shariah-compliant crowdfunding. In this paper, a desk research is conducted where journal articles, books, magazi...

  • Authors: Roslan, Muhammad Faruq; Bamahriz, Omar; Muneeza, Aishath; JinZi, Chu; Mustapha, Zakariya; Ahmad, Mohamad Zabidi (2020)

  • The objective of the paper is to discuss the application of tawarruq in Islamic banking generally.

The outcome of the research helps to understand the modus operandi of tawarruq transactions practically with a view towards understanding its future prospects in the era of fintech. It is envisaged that this research will assist the growing understanding of the existing application of ta...

  • Applications in Shariah financial planning.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Lahsasna, Ahcene (2016)

  • The internationalization of Islamic finance in Europe and other parts of the world spurns us to believe that our Shariah Registered Financial Planner (Shariah RFP) programme is relevant to meet market demands. In Malaysia, Islamic finance is growing exponentially. This new Shariah RFP text module features fully updated information to reflect the current changes in the market sphere. First written by industry leading practitioners in 2008, the work has been further enhanced to correctly reflect the exponential changes Islamic finance has undergone over the recent years as the industry has seen the introduction of many new Islamic financial products in the market place.

  • arab_spring_murat.pdf.jpg
  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Cizakca, Murat (2014)

  • Although "Arab Spring" is the name given to the latest events in the Middle East, I am of the opinion that the Arab world has just entered into a winter. Dictators are falling like leaves but it will take a while for the spring to blossom. Moreover, unlike in nature, the transition is not an automatic process. Spring will come only if certain pre-conditions are fulfilled.

  • basel_accords_islamic_finance_special_reference_malaysia_zubair.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Hasan, Zubair (2014)

  • The worldwide colossal failures of financial institutions in the wake of the 2007-2010 financial turmoil the yesteryear advocates of liberalization and privatization converted almost overnight into vocal supporters of raising the safety walls around the interests of various stakeholders, especially the depositors. Admittedly, it was the heightened lure of leverage gains that led the financial institutions to expand credit beyond what the volume and quality of their capital assets warranted without crossing the limits of safety. The devastation led to a focus-shift so to say at the national and international level in finance specifically to capital adequacy that financial institutions ...

  • belt_and_road_initiative_and_Islamic_financing_jinzi_aishath.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: JinZi, Chu; Muneeza, Aishath (2019)

  • China's One Belt and One Road (OBOR) is a global trade network across Asia, Africa, Europe and Oceania. Also known as Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), OBOR is an attempt to redraw ancient Silk Road to foster global trade and economic development. Nearly 30 Muslims-majority countries are part of China's vision of BRI. The purpose of this paper is twofold: first, to investigate how public private partnership (PPP) has been applied in BRI projects; and second, to explore how Islamic finance can fit within a PPP context. This paper proposes a framework for using Islamic finance in infrastructure PPP projects. This paper also analyses two PPP projects where Islamic finance was deployed as p...

  • Newsletter & Bulletin


  • Authors: Salim, Kinan; Alchaar, Mhd Osama; Noushad, Neha Sarah (2019)

  • As the Fintech evolution transforms the banking sectors worldwide, the players in the market are hard-pressed to experiment the tremendous opportunities that the application of the likes of Blockchain, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence et cetera would have on the financial world. As the volume of the data continue to expand, the possibilities that this raw data materializes in the form of opportunities lean towards limitless. Organizations such as financial institutions must be vigilant of the prospects that such data can reveal and the extend of leverage that they can exercise to build insights for their consumers, products, and services. Big data analytics have alone become the d...

  • blockchain_its_Shariah_compliant_structure_aishath et al.pdf.jpg
  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Muneeza, Aishath; Mustapha, Zakariya (2019)

  • Islamic finance has gained momentum in the world today. Irrespective of faith conviction, it has been accepted as a mode of financing in the world. The development of Islamic finance was gradual in the past. At the initial stage of its development, Islamic finance was concerned more with Shariah compliance of transactions and contracts used in it. Subsequently, focus was realigned on Shariah harmonisation with respect to juristic views and Shariah governance. Islamic finance encompasses some fundamental religious prohibitions and the promotion of certain virtues enshrined in Islam, to be observed in all ramifications of business dealings, including services provision. Therefore, Islam...
