  • The question we hope to answer is what are the preconditions needed to embrace Islamic Finance? The term Islamic Finance must be underlined by Shariah, otherwise there is no Islamic Finance. It encompasses banking, insurance (takaful) wealth planning, capital and money markets. In fact, it includes also the personal, public and corporate finance. In fact, it also includes international finance. Shariah is essentially the Islamic law that covers all aspects of life for Muslims. Its main objective is to provide what is good and beneficial to society and prevents what is harmful and bad for society.

  • Women empowerment is often associated with feminism. The moment a woman voices out issues on gender equality, there is a general perception that she is talking about compromising of quality and competency and arguing for undue career development and its progression in favour of women.
