  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Cizakca, Murat (2011)

  • Timur Kuran is an avid reader of Islamic economic and legal history and an immensely well informed scholar. This latest work not only combines his earlier arguments but also provides some new perspectives. The gist of Kuran's arguments is the following (p. 281) - 1.

This law allowed passive investors to shield their personal assets while … however, active partners carried full liability; 3. The death of a partner terminated the partnership automatically; 4. Due to the Islamic inheritance law and polygamy the numbers of heirs could be large; 5. The partnership termination rule, like the la...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2009)

  • The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is an arrangement under the Kyoto Protocol (an international and legally binding agreement to reduce greenhouse gases, emissions worldwide) allowing industrialised countries with a greenhouse gas reduction commitment (called Annex 1 countries) to invest in projects that reduce emissions in developing countries as an alternative to more expensive emission reductions in their own countries. The most important factor of a carbon project is that it establishes that it would not have occurred without the additional incentive provided by emission reductions credits.

  • To codify or not to codify, is, in matters of the law, the paramount jurisprudential question. More so when the laws in question relate to and are to govern a relatively budding industry, such as that of the Islamic banking and finance (IBF) industry. This paper examines the respective legal and regulatory landscape of four countries, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Sudan and Malaysia vis-a-vis IBF, particularly whether the presence or absence of codified Shariah law for IBF matters play any role in the development of their respective IBF industries and whether Malaysia can draw any lessons from the experiences in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Sudan to ascertain the need/viability/manner in whic...

  • Authors: Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Habibullah, Muzafar Shah; Yap, Shy Yen; Padli, Jaharudin (2009)

  • A normative definition views crime as deviant behavior that violates prevailing norms-cultural standards prescribing how humans ought to behave normally. This approach considers the complex realities surrounding the concept of crime and seeks to understand how changing social, political, psychological, and economic conditions may affect the current definitions of crime and the form of the legal, law enforcement, and penal responses made by society. In the United States since 1930, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has tabulated Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) annually from crime data submitted by law enforcement agencies across the United States. Officials compile this data at the...
