  • Book


  • Authors: Ariff, Mohamed; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2017)

  • The book begins by defining wealth from both a secular perspective and an Islamic perspective. It describes how wealth needs to be earned in lawful ways, preserved and used to benefit the needs of the community, with a small part of the wealth given away to charity, and the remainder managed in accordance with laws and common practices, as established by a majority consensus of scholars of the religion in historical times. Each section of the book has relevant chapters that discuss the theory, as well as the application and the challenges in Islamic wealth management in real and financial markets.

  • Book


  • Authors: Iqbal, Zamir; Mirakhor, Abbas (2011)

  • This book explains the fundamental principles and functions of an economic, banking and financial system based on principles derived from the basic sources of Islam. Rules constituting the institutional scaffolding of such a system—property rights principles, sanctity of contracts and the requirement of faithfulness to terms and conditions of contracts, trust and trustworthiness, risk sharing, and prohibition of interest-rate based debt contracts among others—are discussed with relation to the economic behavior of individuals, society and state.

  • Islamic finance the new normal_book cover.jpg.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Kamarudin, Sazalina (2017)

  • This publication highlights the vast untapped potentials of Islamic finance if unleashed could help meet the massive demand for long-term financing for infrastructure development, promote financial inclusion and spur economic development. Most importantly, the publication underscores the challenges facing Islamic finance in the midst of the era of the new normal - the uncertainties in global economic outlook, accelerated technological changes stimulating expansion of new financial instruments and products, and rising regulatory demands.

  • Exploring the invisible universe.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E.; Willeboordse, Frederick H. (2015)

  • Exploring the Invisible Universe covers the gamut of topics in advanced modern physics and provides extensive and well substantiated answers to these questions and many more. Discussed in a non-technical, yet also non-trivial manner, are topics dominated by invisible things - such as Black Holes and Superstrings as well as Fields, Gravitation, the Standard Model, Cosmology, Relativity, the Origin of Elements, Stars and Planetary Evolution, and more. Just giving the answer, as so many books do, is really not telling anything at all. To truly answer the "why" questions of nature, one needs to follow the chain of reasoning that scientists have used to come to the conclusions they have.

  • Path integrals and Hamiltonians.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E. (2014)

  • Providing a pedagogical introduction to the essential principles of path integrals and Hamiltonians, this book describes cutting-edge quantum mathematical techniques applicable to a vast range of fields, from quantum mechanics, solid state physics, statistical mechanics, quantum field theory, and superstring theory to financial modeling, polymers, biology, chemistry, and quantum finance. Eschewing use of the Schrodinger equation, the powerful and flexible combination of Hamiltonian operators and path integrals is used to study a range of different quantum and classical random systems, succinctly demonstrating the interplay between a system's path integral, state space, and Hamiltonian...

  • theoretical_foundations_of_quantum_mechanics.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E. (2013)

  • This book addresses fundamental issues that are not discussed in most books on quantum mechanics. This book focuses on analyzing the underlying principles of quantum mechanics and explaining the conceptual and theoretical underpinning of quantum mechanics. In particular, the concepts of quantum indeterminacy, quantum measurement and quantum superposition are analyzed to clarify the concepts that are implicit in the formulation of quantum mechanics. The Schrodinger equation is never solved in the book. Rather, the discussion on the fundamentals of quantum mechanics is treated in a rigorous manner based on the mathematics of quantum mechanics. The new concept of the interplay of empiric...

  • interest_rates_and_coupon_bonds_quantum_finance_belal.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E. (2010)

  • The economic crisis of 2008 has shown that the capital markets need new theoretical and mathematical concepts to describe and price financial instruments. Focusing almost exclusively on interest rates and coupon bonds, this book does not employ stochastic calculus - the bedrock of the present day mathematical finance - for any of the derivations. Instead, it analyzes interest rates and coupon bonds using quantum finance. The Heath-Jarrow-Morton and the Libor Market Model are generalized by realizing the forward and Libor interest rates as an imperfectly correlated quantum field. Theoretical models have been calibrated and tested using bond and interest rates market data. Building on t...

  • the malaysian economy_pacific connections.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (1991)

  • This book examines the importance of the Pacific region to the Malaysian economy. Particular emphasis is placed on the contributions of the Pacific to Malaysia's trade expansion and industrial development through foreign investment. The book also traces the trends in the Pacific, discusses the possible impact of such trends on the Malaysian economy in the years ahead, and draws policy implications for the 1990s and beyond.

  • exploring_integrated_science.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E.; Willeboordse, Frederick H. (2010)

  • Why is rubber elastic? Why are leaves green? Why can a gecko climb a wall? Answering these and a myriad of other puzzles of nature, Exploring Integrated Science shows how the simplest questions that arise from our daily experiences can lead us through a chain of reasoning that explains some of the most fascinating principles of science. Written in a non-technical entertaining style to engage those without a science background while maintaining the academic rigor required by more advanced readers, the book follows a unique format that enhances the learning process. Each chapter begins with a pertinent question that forms the basis for explaining a scientific principle. Step by step, th...

  • quantum_finance_path_integral_belal.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E. (2004)

  • This book applies the mathematics and concepts of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory to the modelling of interest rates and the theory of options. Particular emphasis is placed on path integrals and Hamiltonians. Financial mathematics is dominated by stochastic calculus. The present book offers a formulation that is completely independent of that approach. As such many results emerge from the ideas developed by the author. This work will be of interest to physicists and mathematicians working in the field of finance, to quantitative analysts in banks and finance firms and to practitioners in the field of fixed income securities and foreign exchange.

  • Corporate_governance_of_Islamic_banking_aishath.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Muneeza, Aishath (2013)

  • There is no ready made definition for corporate governance. Some view corporate governance as an indescribable term like love and happiness, the nature of it is easy to understand, but difficult to describe in words. Islamically aligned corporate governance principles that apply to Islamic banking are dubbed as Shari'ah corporate governance. Corporate governance is essential to achieve optimal performance of any company. Without good corporate governance principles, a company could be described as a boat withour a rudder, which has no mission and vision to achieve.

  • Islamic finance in Malaysia.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2017)
