  • With the development of Islamic banking and finance in most Muslim countries, money market became necessary for financial institution to solve the liquidity problems. However, there is much criticism of Islamic banks and financial products for their pegging to the interest rate. Islamic money market is based on the same PLS principle with other Islamic financial products, if such products are pegged to their rate of interest, then they are not PLS. More correctly, they are based on well-and sometimes not so well-hidden conventional or interest-based contracts ...

The study aims to explore SRI sukuk models that could be implemented to develop waqf properties and assets under the SRI sukuk framework in Malaysia ...

  • Islam advocates the protection of all types of rights. However all the types of rights were not directly regulated by Shari'ah but the principles of Shari'ah can be construed to provide support for such protection. To the best of our knowledge, there is no paper which efficiently talks about the tradable and non-tradable rights that provides a framework which can be used to evaluate any new type of right from its tradability point of view. This paper attempts to examine the tradability of rights from Islamic Law perspective by using library research method (Qualitative Assessment). Kindly email to kmc@inceif.org to access the item.

  • 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...

It is essential to determine the best possible option that could be suitable for it to adopt as the reputational risk is very high (and moreover, unfortunately it has already faced the compelled termination of several Islamic finance projects in its history).

  • There is no 'best fit' business model in takaful. All existing models applied in the present day takaful are akin to fitting square pegs into round holes. Where there are needs to fit in certain aspects of the business models, the practice is to cut off corners around the square pegs to enable the fit, primarily on the basis of maslahah to ensure conformity with the commercial aspirations and objective of the business models. This paper primarily explores the feasibility of ju'alah as the underlying contract in takaful. The ju'alah business model is developed, formulated and validated as to whether it can be an alternative business model in the context of Islamic commercial insurance-...

  • FDI is the central topic of contemporary economics. Its role in propping up the economy has long been demonstrated, and the FDI inflow is thus competed fiercely by OIC member countries for the sake of economic development. To succeed in bringing in FDI, however, requires governments to identify and analyze the determinant factors of FDI. For this purpose, we use multilinear regression to process the data of FDI and its possible determinants variables within the OIC members from 1992 to 2010 ...
