Islamic Finance

Having the rare privilege of being taught Islamic Finance by the Great Mufti Taqi Usmani, I simply could not let that knowledge to go to waste.

As such, on my return from a training course with the great Shaykh, I started writing Research papers on topical subjects such as Islam’s ban on interest, charitable giving in Islam and the dilemma over conventional Insurance. Many of the papers have been condensed into easy read guides for the Muslim Community.

During Ramadan 2005, I started writing a textbook on Islamic Finance which was then continued by a professional writer and is today published by 1st Ethical Charitable Trust of which I am a founding Trustee. The Textbook numbers over 700 pages and is entitled ‘Islamic Finance – what it is and what it could be’. It is the core reading text for numerous Islamic Finance courses including university modules on the subject.
