  • This book presents successful case studies in Muslim and Muslim minority countries that have revolutionized the redevelopment of idle waqf properties into productive land trusts. The revival of this institution over the last two decades shows the growing optimism in galvanizing the socioeconomic role of waqf by adopting its flexible shariah measures. Innovative ways of financing redevelopment allow Muslims to extend these roles to include new beneficiaries. New uses for these properties include providing services to the community, opening jobs for the majority of people, funding small entrepreneurs, educating the masses, providing health care, and sheltering the poor and needy.

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2013)

  • Recently the revival of the institution of waqf took a movable form especially in terms of the creation of cash waqf which found its ways as one of the financial institutions financing different goods and services in the different countries. In an attempt to enrich the literature on this area, this study is an extension to the authors' work, focusing mainly on the different goods and services provided by different cash waqf schemes in Muslim and Muslim minority countries without depending on the government to provide their needs. The paper aims to discuss these issues. This study uses data collected from primary sources including text from the Hadith, while data collected from seconda...

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2020)

  • Current statistical data shows that almost all Muslim countries are facing economic and social problems such as the spread of poverty, mounting outstanding external debt due to compound interest and widespread unethical behaviour. Some contemporary scholars relate these problems to the oppression and the crippling policies of former colonial administrations, while others point to the governmental incompetence and corruption that triggered the last Arab spring. However, this paper contends that although the above mentioned issues may have served as catalysts that led to the worsening of socio-economic situation in many countries, the main reason for the overwhelming problems plaguing M...

  • The internationalization of Islamic finance in Europe and other parts of the world spurns us to believe that our Shariah Registered Financial Planner (Shariah RFP) programme is relevant to meet market demands. In Malaysia, Islamic finance is growing exponentially. This new Shariah RFP text module features fully updated information to reflect the current changes in the market sphere. First written by industry leading practitioners in 2008, the work has been further enhanced to correctly reflect the exponential changes Islamic finance has undergone over the recent years as the industry has seen the introduction of many new Islamic financial products in the market place. Available in ...

  • The institution of waqf, or an Islamic foundation, has played a significant role throughout Islamic history, from the time of the Prophet (pbuh) to the present time. Although this institution existed before the coming of Islam, Islam was the first religion to develop its legal system and to regulate it. It became the main device created by Muslims to facilitate most social services such as education, health care, national security, transportation facilities, basic infrastructure, etc., without any cost to the government. Recently, the creation of new waqf has concentrated mainly on movable waqf, i.e., cash waqf.

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda; Alhabshi, Syed Othman (2016)

  • The failure of interest based programmes, such as micro-finance and anti-poverty programmes, in assisting the destitute, eradicating poverty and reducing income inequality encouraged the authors to study in depth the alternative financial institutions to interest/riba that can solve such problems rather than harming individuals, communities, societies and countries. This raises the question of whether the different Islamic financial institutions can eradicate poverty, reduce inequalities and provide microfinance with zero-interest. The answer to this will be presented throughout this paper.

  • According to the World Bank Statistics (2012) more than 80% of the world's population live in countries where income inequality is very wide. The latest Oxfam report shows that the richest 1% of the world population holds over 50% of the world's wealth. This means that 62 richest people own an estimated wealth of US$1.76 trillion which is equivalent to the wealth of 3.5 billion people who make the poorest half of the world population (2015). The failure of the capitalist system in reducing this income inequality encourages economists to provide justification for this huge gap between the rich and the poor. Some economists believe that the main causes of this income inequalities is due...

  • Looking at current global reports, it seems that half of the world's population is suffering economically and socially. According to the most recent estimates, in 2013, 10.7 per cent of the world's population (767 million people) lived on less than US$1.90 a day (World Bank|Poverty Overview 2018). Moreover, millions of people lack adequate shelter and access to portable water, health services and education and suffer from extreme hunger (Shah 2013). Muslim countries are not exceptional, even though many anti-poverty programmes have been implemented, yet the Islamic Development Bank reported that 351.2 million people are living on less than $1.25 a day (SESRIC - Statistical, Economic a...
