  • Masalah paling penting: sistem kewangan berdasarkan riba telah menguasai dunia selama lebih lima abad semenjak bermulanya ekonomi perdagangan dan perbankan pada abad ke-16. Hakikatnya ialah ribatelah menjadi tajuk perdebatan selama lebih 3,000 tahun Aristotle, ahli falsafah dan pemikir berbangsa Greek, dalam bukunya "Politics" telah membantah amalan riba sekeras-kerasnya. Aristotle menulis, "Of the two sorts of money-making; one is a part of household management, the other is retail trade: the former necessary and honourable, the latter a kind of exchange which is justly censured; for it is unnatural, and a mode by which men gain from one another."

  • Book


  • Authors: Wilson, Rodney (2012)

  • This book presents a detailed examination of the use of common and civil law to license and govern Islamic financial institutions. Making international comparisons, it discusses specific laws from Iran, where all banking is Shari'ah compliant, to Malaysia and the Gulf, where Islamic financial institutions compete with conventional banks. As most Islamic banks operate under national banking laws, consideration is given as to how - and indeed whether - these need to be amended. Available in physical copy and ebook (Call Number: KBP 940.2 W753)

  • Authors: Smolo, Edib; Mirakhor, Abbas (2014)

  • This paper primarily aims to review and analyze a new model for Islamic finance based on Laurence J. Kotlikoff's idea of limited purpose banking (LPB). In addition, this paper aims to highlight, explain and discuss various aspects of LPB and how it suits the original aspirations of pioneer writers in Islamic finance.

  • Academic Proceeding


  • Authors: Vicary Abdullah, Daud (2010)

  • This paper discusses a global overview of liquidity management in institutions offering Islamic financial services. It also investigates the challenges and issues which impact on an effective liquidity management process. The main challenge and issue with liquidity management is to make it a globally accepted process by having global standardisation. This would promote transparency as well as familiarity within the Islamic finance industry. Our findings show that there are still many gaps to be filled, especially in the area of Shari'ah-compliant liquidity management schemes, cross-border liquidity market and infrastructures, availability of adequate short-term financial instrument...

  • The sum of global Islamic assets under management (AUM) is relatively small compared with the overall market. In the third quarter of 2015, Islamic AUM represented approximately 1% of the global market or US$60.2 billion; nevertheless, Malaysia contributes the largest portion with a total value of US$27.2 billion, according to data from the International Shariah Research Academy for Islamic Finance and Zawya. Chart 2 illustrates the position of Malaysia as a market leader for Islamic fund management. Growth in this industry, even if it’s small, would be a significant boost to the Malaysian economy and crucial when we need to diversify our economy in order to reduce the over-reliance o...

  • The Maldives is a 100% Muslim country. Islamic finance in the Maldives was introduced 15 years ago. The journey of developing Islamic finance in the Maldives has not been so long, but today the number of players in the market is 12. For a small country like the Maldives, having 12 Islamic finance providers is adequate. In 2003, when Amana Takaful Maldives started its operation in the Maldives, it opened an agency office called Amana Takaful Sri Lanka. Until the 4th March 2010, the company operated through a local agent with a temporary license. Upon receiving a license from the Maldives Monetary Authority (MMA) which is the regulator, the company ceased its operations through the agen...
