  • As it is well known, interest prohibition constitutes one of the most important traits of Islamic economy and finance. The immediate consequence of the prohibition is the problem of combining the factors of production. Put differently, if Q=f (K, L, N, E, ....) is a simple production function, where Q is production, K is capital, L is labour, N is natural resources and E is entrepreneurship.

  • This month I would like to build on the discussions we have been having over the last few months and reflect on the work we have to do in order to further promote the values of Islamic Finance. In the past month I have had the opportunity to address audiences at conferences, run workshops and discussion groups, contribute at panel discussions as well as some face to face discussions in Zurich, Geneva, Kuala Lumpur and London. Much of what I have been speaking about is based on Relevance, Trust and Impact #RTI, which I discussed at some length last month. In addition to that I have been painting a picture of the alignment between the 17 UN SDG's and the objectives of the Maqasid al Sha...

  • The Maldives is a small island nation with a 100% Muslim population. The country witnessed the first form of Islamic finance with the incorporation of Amana Takaful Maldives in 2003 and the first fully-fledged Islamic bank was established in 2011. As the Maldives marked the 15th anniversary of Islamic finance in the country, it gave the opportunity for the citizens of the country to appreciate the industry and widen its scope to tap into the halal industry via Islamic tourism and halal certification.

  • It is true that significant progress in poverty alleviation and social empowerment has been made over the last 30 years. For OIC member states, the percentage of the population living below the poverty line has decreased by almost half, from 41.1% in 1990 to 22.4% in 2011. However, as populations increase, the number of people suffering from hunger, malnutrition and disease remains considerable. The OIC 2025 Programme of Action stresses, in Article 1.6, that Member States must transform their approach through "effective utilization of Islamic social finance (Zakat, Waqf) at national and intra-OIC level" in order to address poverty. It is quickly forgotten that the celebrated 17 social...

  • This paper aims to exhibit how Regtech can be utilized in developing supportive, yet prudent, policies to the Islamic banking and finance sector which are aligned with the objectives of the Shari'ah. Regtech has showcased to be a powerful enabler for both regulators and market participants to collect, analyze and improve compliance to be achieved in real-time at low costs. Apart from that, the ability for Regtech and facilitating technologies to collect hard and soft data (e.g., financial information and behavioural data) provides an avenue for regulators to incorporate the ethos of Islamic finance into its policy development processes. To achieve the said objectives, this paper would...

  • The Malaysian finance industry is governed by Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and Securities Commission Malaysia (SC).
