Course Overview

Islamic banking is based on the principles of Islamic/Sharia law, guided by Islamic economics. Islamic law prohibits interest, and hence it is a non-interest banking system.

Some of the modes of this banking system include profit sharing and loss bearing (Mudarabah), safekeeping (Wadiah), joint ventures (Musharaka), cost plus (Murabahah), leasing (Ijara), etc.

It also prohibits investment in businesses that provide products and/or services against Islamic principles. Historically, these prohibitions have been applied in Islamic countries to control and prevent un-Islamic practices.
