mobilizing savings from saving surplus units in the
economy and in allocating these funds among
saving deficit units.

instruments would improve efficiency in
mobilization of funds.
For Improving Allocational
Efficiency it Needs
Less transaction cost

Simplified transaction system

Islamic Fianacial System
Financial institutions and instruments which are functioning on
the basis of directions and rules in shariah (a set of rules that
governs every aspect of Islamic life) are known as Islamic
financial system.

In conventional finance there is a tug of war between ethics


and efficiency.

In Islamic finance ethics dominate all the concerns.

The Shari'ah specifies, inter alia, rules that relate to the


allocation of resources, property rights, production and
consumption, and the distribution of income and wealth
Shariah Prohibits
Riba: which is taking or giving of interest

Masir : which is involvement in speculative and gambling transactions

Gharar : which is uncertainity about the terms of contract or the subject matter, eg.
Prohibits selling something which one does not own.

Investment in business dealing in alcohol, drugs, gambling, armaments, etc. which


are considered unlawful or undesirable.
Why Interest/ Riba Prohibited

Prohibition of interest is not limited to Islam it
is prohibited in Judaism and Christianity


Key objective is to ensure SOCIAL JUSTICE


Money is only a medium of exchange, no value in
itself.


Therefore should not be allowed to give rise to more
money, via fixed interest payments, simply by being
put in a bank or lent to someone else


Results in concentration of wealth
l Interest can leads to injustice and exploitation in
society.

income

given its emphasis on non-exploitation and social welfare.
It may be observed that Islamic finance is far more
interesting and complex than conventional finance as far
as financing techniques are concerned.
it is in the area of assets rather than in liabilities that the
practices of Islamic banks are more diverse and complex
than those of conventional banks.

it is generally believed that Murabahah is the most widely


used technique and that the majority of the financing
provided by Islamic banks goes to short-term trade and
the financing of real estate.
