IMF survey, 2010 has stated that Islamic banks have on an average shown stronger resilience to the recent global financial crisis and meltdown. Economists are of the view that due to the robust growth of Islamic banks during the crisis periods, they are highly likely to take a lead to grow the market share in the future.

For the purposes of this module the term Islamic Finance is juxtaposed against what might be described as secular banking but which is here termed 'conventional banking' on the basis that Islamic Finance has emerged as a system relatively more recently.
