  • Newsletter & Bulletin


  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2017)

  • 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...

  • Authors: Sadr, Seyed Kazem; Alhabshi, Syed Othman; Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda; Shaikh Abdul Razak, Shaikh Hamzah (2020)

  • This paper argues that the goal of poverty alleviation and a decent standard of living is not attainable in Muslim communities unless the economic and social services of the Islamic philanthropic institutes are integrated and a full-fledged collaboration would be resumed among the managing boards.

The second part will review the potential and actual contributions of the said Islamic benevolent giving for poverty eradication and well-being of low and vulnerable income families. The third and concluding part will...

  • Cash waqf is a type of waqf categorized as movable waqf. Like other waqf, cash waqf aims to promote service to mankind by establishing waqf using money. Historically, cash waqf was widely used by the Ottoman Empire since the end of 16th century. At that time, cash waqf was used to finance entrepreneurs for their business, and then the return was used for public service such as hospitalization, education, water channelling, bridges, roads, etc. Cash waqf played an important role in the economy of the empire.

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda; Saiti, Buerhan (2011)

  • From a mere glance at Muslim countries today, we realize that they are classified as third world countries even though they are adopting a secular system. The recent statistical data of 2009 shows that the majority of people who live below poverty are found in Muslim countries such as; Afghanistan 53%, Eritrea 50%, Yemen 45%, Bangladesh 45%, Sudan 40%, Pakistan 24%, Algeria 23%, Egypt 20%, Turkey 20%, and Indonesia 18%. Some scholars related this fact to the oppression, humiliation and the bad policies which had been imposed to almost all Muslim countries during colonization and which continued up to the present time. Others related this to the incompetence and the corruption on the p...

  • The gender gap in Islamic wealth management is an area often not discussed as some perceive Islam as a religion that bans women from acquiring and managing wealth separately from the men in their life. Therefore, this paper aims to explore the economic status of women from an Islamic perspective by examining the relevant literature. Drawing from the Malaysian context, this paper illustrates the gender gap in financial inclusion and also looks at market opportunities to empower women financially. This is a conceptual paper grounded in religious texts, academic publications and statistics published by authoritative bodies. The paper clarifies the general concept of Islamic wealth manage...
