  • Goodness is the only INVESTMENT which never fails

  • History of Islamic Banking

  • Islamic Banking is a system of banking that operates in accordance with the

    rules of Shariah (Islamic Law), known as Fiqh al-Muaamalaat (Islamic

    Commercial Law). Islamic Banking is based on Islamic Commercial Law, which

    was founded over 1400 years ago. Therefore Islamic Banking was existent at

    that time.

    Modern Islamic Banking grew due to the desire of Muslims to fashion all

    aspects of their life in accordance with principles of their faith.

    History of Islamic Banking

  • History of Islamic Banking

    The first modern experiment with Islamic Banking was undertaken in Mit Ghamr, Egypt by Dr Ahmad Elnaggar. The pioneering effort, led by Ahmad Elnaggar, took the form of a savings bank based on profit-sharing in 1963.

    In 1971, the Mit Ghamr Savings project became part of Nasser Social Bank.

    In 1975, the Islamic Development Bank was initiated with the mission of providing funding to projects in the OIC member countries. The first modern commercial Islamic Bank, Dubai Islamic Bank, opened its doors in 1975. In the early years, the products offered were basic and replicated conventional banking functions in a Shariah compliant manner.

    Within a ten year period 1975-1985, 27 more Islamic Banks were established. Also by 1985, many conventional banks offered Islamic Banking products or opened Islamic window banks.

    By the year 2000 there were more than 200 Islamic

    Muaamalaat (Islamic commercial jurisprudence). However, the Shariah Supervisory

    Board may include a member other than those specialized in Fiqh al-Muaamalaat, but

    who should be an expert in the field of Islamic Financial Institutions and with knowledge

    of Fiqh al-Muaamalaat. The Shariah Supervisory Board is entrusted with the duty of

    directing, reviewing and supervising the activities of the Islamic Financial Institution in

    order to ensure that they are in compliance with Islamic Shariah rules and principles. The

    fatwas and rulings of the Shariah Supervisory Board shall be binding on the

    Islamic Financial Institution.

  • Appointment of a Shariah Supervisory

    Board and fixing its Remuneration

    Every Islamic Financial Institution shall have a Shariah Supervisory Board to be appointed by the shareholders in their annual general meeting upon the recommendation of the Board of Directors taking into consideration the local legislation and regulations. Shareholders may authorise the Board of Directors to fix the remuneration of the Shariah Supervisory Board. The Shariah Supervisory Board and the Islamic Financial Institution should agree on the terms of engagement. The agreed terms would need to be recorded in the appointment letter. The Shariah Supervisory Board should ensure that the Islamic Financial Institution documents and confirms the Shariah Supervisory Boards acceptance of appointment. The letter of appointment of Shariah Supervisory Board should generally include reference to the compliance of the Islamic Financial Institution with Shariah rules and principles. The Shariah Supervisory Board shall appoint from among its members or any other person a supervisor(s) to help in performing its duties.

  • The Shariah Supervisory Board shall consist of at least three members. The

    The dismissal of a member of the Shariah Supervisory Board shall require a

    recommendation by the Board of Directors and be subject to the approval of

    the shareholders in the general meeting.
