  • Shelter is one of the basic needs for human beings. Its availability for the people is an Islamic imperative. In view of the appalling living conditions of a substantial proportion of the population in most countries around the world, especially Muslim, Islamic banks have entered the field with various schemes for home financing. In this infant industry, this effort is understandably guided by the profit motive, but a social dimension has to surface in the course of time.Unfortunately, the models banks currently use for home financing remain under the juridical gaze, more so as the practice is not always found to be transparent. This paper looks at Islamic home financing models in a b...

  • Since the 2007/2008 financial crisis, research has revealed that all financial crises, such as banking or exchange rate crisis, have been, in essence, debt crises (see for example Reinhart & Rogoff, 2009, 2011). Further, econometric investigations have demonstrated that the chain of causation starts from fractional reserve-based credit expansion to debt increase to leverage expansion leading to crisis (see for example Turner, Haldane, Woolley, & et al., 2010). Moreover, post-crisis diagnostics have led to conclusion that conventional monetary policy has been unable to induce growth resumption ...

  • Monetary policy is an important available tool for governments to pursuit macroeconomic objectives. However, the recent financial crisis has revealed the weaknesses of the conventional monetary policy framework. Monetary policy has been found to be a prominent cause of financial instability. Inability of expansionary monetary policy to induce new lending in many economies is considered as evidence of the impairment of conventional monetary policy transmission mechanism. Additionally, the post-crisis diagnostics have revealed that monetary policy failed to address asset market imbalances. A large number of these studies have focused on the reforms of the conventional system. Some...

  • There are numbers of things one should consider to better understand project financing from an Islamic perspective. Most are interested in examining the nature and structure of Islamic instruments used to mobilise the capital needed by a project company. Structuring an Islamic bond (sukuk) is becoming more challenging among investment bankers. Most popular are the Al-bai bithaman ajil bonds (BAIDS) and murabaha notes issuance facility (MuNif)

  • The rapid growth of global Islamic wealth and asset management has contributed to the establishment of a niche market based on the Islamic finance paradigm of interest-free, transparent, profit and loss sharing and mutually beneficial contracts. However, Islamic wealth and finance has been criticized for converging into conventional practices rather than its core principles of socio-economic empowerment and justice. The capitalist attributes of profit maximization without the ethical and moral boundaries has pervaded this industry that was supposed to espouse the ethical and socio-economic tenets as its value prepositions for its future growth and survival. There is an emerging trend ...

  • The consistent growth of the global Islamic banking and finance has provided a niche market with solutions and financial inclusion through a well-defined Islamic ethos. Unfortunately, Islamic finance has been criticised for having diverted from its core principles of socio-economic empowerment and upliftment. As in mainstream interest-based finance, Islamic financing and advances rely on the customers' credit-worthiness and the ability to repay, inevitably supporting those with good credit standing to improve their financial status. But, how has Islamic finance improved the lot of the downtrodden? What about the ethical, socio-economic tenets that Islamic finance has so vociferously e...

  • The growth potential of Islamic finance in China is huge given the country’s 1.3 billion population, but developments of Islamic finance institutions in the country is still stunted due to lack of access to Shari’ah-compliant liquidity. Perceived by many in China as being for Muslims only, Islamic finance has struggled to take off. Islamic finance must be open to and adopted by non-Muslims as well, so that it can gain a larger foothold in the country.
