Islamic Banking

Islamic Banking is an alternative to conventional banking that is available to anyone who seeks a different approach to financial services, not only for members of the Muslim community who wish to operate financially in line with Shari’ah Law but also designed for non-Muslims.

Like conventional banks, an Islamic bank is an intermediary and trustee of other people’s money with the difference that it shares profit and loss with its depositors. This difference introduces an element of mutuality in Islamic banking, making its depositors as customers with some ownership rights.
