  • Simply stated, epistemology deals with the question of what we know about a phenomenon and how do we know it. The practitioners use the term Islamic finance industry (IFI) to refer to their activities in designing and trading “Shari’ah-compliant” ways and means of financing. Taxonomically, industries in an economy belong to a sector and sectors belong to subsystems which in turn belong to a larger system.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Sukmana, Raditya (2011)

  • The article evaluates dynamic interactions between Islamic financing and macroeconomic and financial variables for Malaysia using the Toda-Yamamoto (1995) causality test and innovation accounting approach. The results suggest strong causal influences of interest rate on Islamic financing but insignificant causal relations from real stock prices or real production to Islamic financing. Thus, while the results suggest that Islamic financing in Malaysia is resilient to boom/bust cycles of the stock market or fluctuations in real activity, Islamic banks under a dual-banking environment are not spared from fluctuations in interest rate or monetary conditions of the country.
