Description - Islamic Banking by Fuad A. Al-Omar
This is an investigation into the challenges faced by financial institutions operating in an Islamic environment, and how they can be met in practice. Its starting point is Islam's very specific approach to commercial transactions, the law of contract, interest charges and the nature of property. The authors investigate the way Islamic banks work within different economic, financial, social, legal and religious environments. They take the reader through the basic principles involved, the issues that arise and the difficulties that are often encountered. They explain how complex Islamic concepts impact upon the use of financial instuments, commercial priorities and services. Relationships with central banks, comparative analysis of financial statements and the role of Islamic banking in a development context are also covered.
