  • In an Islamic economy, the financial sector functions to support the real sector. There are no interest rate based debt instruments.

As in traditional general equilibrium theory, there is a price system comprised of a real rate of return to capital and a price level of commodities that simultaneously clears asset and commodity markets. An Islamic financial system is shown to be stable, namely the economy evolves from short-term equilibrium to a stable long-term equilibrium.

  • Shari'ah provides the basic tenets of the Islamic finance industry and advocates banks to share their profits and losses with investors. But what it means for a firm to be "Shari'ah-compliant" and what form of connections it can have, even in theory, to either the firm's value or profitability is still an untapped question. This study tries to answer this question. This study aims to find the impact of Shari'ah compliance on firm performance. The results obtained would be useful in helping investors, regulators, companies, government, academicians and practitioners in their decision-making process as to ensure better economic and business gains, both locally and globally.
