Islamic banks have enjoyed considerable success during the last three decades in establishing retail branch networks to serve their national markets. They have been able to attract deposits from the pious, who feel uncomfortable in dealing with conventional riba based banks. Prior to the emergence of Islamic banks, many Muslims had little choice other than to open current accounts with conventional banks, but most avoided savings account on which interest accrued.
