  • An effective system of rules, practices and processes by which Islamic Financial Institutions (IFIs) are directed and controlled to ensure their business operations are Shariah-compliant has important implications on their reputation and their future growth. The Shariah Committee is a mandated requirement by the central bank on every Islamic Financial Institution (IFI) to ensure the expected level of Shariah-compliance in their business operations.

While there exists a burgeoning literature that examines the relationship between corporate social performance (CSP) and credit risk, there are several prevailing issues. Firstly, previous studies of CSP have relied on measure...

  • Politics inevitably influences economic activity and financial markets. Although it is premature to give a full assessment of the impact of Arab Uprisings on the financial sector and in particular the Islamic financial segment, it is possible to draw some preliminary conclusions. First, as far as the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) are concerned, it is largely business as usual, and even in Bahrain, the economy subject to the most potential damage, the concern is long term, as for the present the island remains the leading centre for Islamic finance in the Gulf and continues to host the largest number of Islamic financial institutions.
