Revitalising Islamic and Social Finance: Rising to Current Humanitarian and Development Challenges
 
01:28:13
This lecture will argue for a paradigm shift in thinking about the Islamic financial system and for the inclusion of social impact metrics in the benchmark objectives for Islamic financial institutions. In addition, it will explore the potential for Islamic development finance and possible delivery strategies, looking at options to leverage Islamic social finance - such as almsgiving (zakah) and endowments (waqf) - to provide humanitarian assistance, foster greater financial inclusion, and achieve sustainability. The lecture will also discuss the possible contributions of Islamic land systems to address humanitarian challenges, especially in post-conflict situations.

Iran Today - Situation of Islamic banking in Iran
 
25:39
Despite the close scrutiny by Iran's Central Bank, recently there's been a cloud of doubt hovering over the true application of Islamic principles and precepts in Iran's banking sector. Around 14 hundred years ago, Islam found its way into the land of Persians and it now constitutes some 98% of the Iranian population’s faith. Interestingly enough, Islam taught people how to have rules and regulations for each and every minor aspect of social life, all that which is now referred to as the Islamic Jurisprudence or Sharia law. In 1983, Iranian Parliament following extensive researches by Islamic Jurists ratified and issued an executive order of usury-free Islamic banking practice based on which usury is strictly forbidden. A few Shia Jurisprudential leaders have uttered criticism against high interest rates and the penalties some banks demand for payment delays and have called it as being equally so, “un-allowed” or Not Halaal, religiously speaking. Usury or usurious practice, in Islamic teachings, is as if one is declaring war against the Almighty God. After many years of having passed various laws in terms of Islamic banking, a lot of people still believe, the Iranian banking sector is yet to become fully Islamic. The fact that the country’s economy is greatly dependent on banks, to supply its financial resources, is one reason why, the majority of banks have been led to a path, which many Islamic scholars believe isn’t completely compatible with the Sharia. In Islamic banking, and as a means to remove this allegation and as a result its adverse implications of a usurious nature, one is encouraged to adopt Islamic frameworks of agreement and contractual formats known as “Oghood”. These contracts are essentially a manner of collaboration with the banks, so that in return for a given action, an agreed interest is accrued on both parties’ accounts. Based on the Iranian Islamic Banking Act, banks are allowed to offer some 12 types of Islamic contracts, to their clients. Normally, interest rates make up the biggest share of banks' income source. In western banks, that income is provided from the rate of interests they charge on the loans they offer to their clients which is usury and is banned in Islamic Sharia. However, in Islamic banks, the income is provided by the profit of contracts like the profits withdrawn in partnerships or leasing contracts, benefits drawn from renting contracts with conditions for ownership and forward contracts. Zero-interest loans-giving is an Islamic tradition, meant to combat usury. In this Godly practice, which has roots in the Quran, the Muslims are encouraged to lend each other money without expecting any interest. Such funds were set up here in Iran, since before the Islamic Revolution (38 years ago) and were busy loaning people in need small albeit useful sums of money.

Issues in Islamic Finance: Starting Up an Islamic Financial Institution in China
 
05:21
The growth potential of Islamic finance in China is huge given the country’s 1.3 billion population, but developments of Islamic finance institutions in the country is still stunted due to lack of access to Shari’ah-compliant liquidity. Perceived by many in China as being for Muslims only, Islamic finance has struggled to take off. Islamic finance must be open to and adopted by non-Muslims as well, so that it can gain a larger foothold in the country.

Introduction to Islamic Banking

Do you want to know how Islamic banking works? Learn about Islamic banking and it’s concepts by enrolling in comprehensive online Islamic banking course at https://goo.gl/1zBEap . Get experience of highly flexible online courses at Brentwood Open Learning College at your own schedules with no fixed study timings. http://www.bolc.co.uk Today Islamic banking has expanded to become a distinctive and fast growing sector of the international banking and capital markets. The key feature, or principle, that distinguishes Islamic banks from any other kind of bank is the rejection of interest-based financial transactions. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, many Western, Middle Eastern and Asian financial institutions recognise Islamic banking as an important new opportunity for growth and have adopted Islamic practices to serve this expanding market. Rejection of interest by Islam poses the question of what replaces the interest rate mechanism in an Islamic framework. Here PLS comes in, substituting profit-and-loss-sharing for interest as a method of resource allocation. Although a large number of different contracts feature in Islamic financing, certain types of transaction are central: • Trustee finance (mudaraba) • Equity participation (musharaka) • Mark-up methods Four key roles are performed in a financial system. It provides financial intermediation services, channelling funds from ultimate savers to ultimate borrowers. The system provides a wide range of other financial services not immediately related to financial intermediation. It creates a broad array of assets and liabilities, each of which have different characteristics. Central role of any financial system is the creation of incentives for an efficient allocation of resources within an economy. Apart from share capital, Islamic banks attract funds by issuing or selling the following instruments: • investment or PLS (profit-and-loss sharing) accounts • savings accounts • transaction accounts, or current accounts • quardhasan accounts • Borrowings Brentwood open learning college is one of the UK’s open learning colleges focused on delivering interactive and appealing distance learning courses.

That ecosystem of banks and financial markets (including Central Banks) has deepened in size, sophistication and complexity over the years. However, in recent times they have also been the subject of abuse, failures and economic distress in several countries resulting in a ‘contagion’ that has concurrently impacted several countries around the World! More recently, and perhaps more importantly, thanks to the liberalization of most economies, the world has witnessed an exponential increase in the free flow of capital across countries. Banking institutions and financial markets, being the predominant conduit for such free flow of capital across countries, have therefore become even more ‘globally interconnected’. Such a globally interconnected financial system, combined with regulatory systems that are country-specific and hence varying considerably in rigor and implementation, has further compounded the risks and the consequent contagion, as witnessed in the global financial meltdown that was triggered in 2008. This course titled “Introduction to Banking and Financial Markets” will be delivered in two parts. The first part will help you demystify the role of banking and financial markets in any country, the products and services they offer and the underlying market mechanisms. The second part of the course will examine the risks embedded in banking and financial markets, how these risks have been heightened because of a globally interconnected world and the regulatory and governance mechanisms to minimize adverse outcomes in such a complex system. WHAT YOU'LL LEARN Part I of this course will help you understand: - The theory and concepts underlying banking and financial markets and the ‘symbiotic’ relationship between the two - The products and instruments that are offered by banks and financial Markets to meet the financial needs of individuals, businesses and governments - How and why are they different from corporations that sell goods and services - The underlying market mechanisms and how financial instruments are traded (i.e., bought and sold) in the financial markets.

37e Midi de la microfinance - Islamic microfinance: A solution to expand financial inclusion?
 
01:12:10
Islamic microfinance: A solution to expand financial inclusion? The global Muslim population counts about 2 billion people but over 70% of them, living in Muslim majority countries as Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Bangladesh or Sudan, do not use formal financial services. Despite the expansion of institutions providing credit and loan services in developing countries, still only 0.5% of global microfinance institutions offer the services and products responding to Islamic financing principles (CGAP survey, 2008). In the context of an evident huge demand for the expansion of these financial products and services, the development of Islamic microfinance is still in its infancy. As this tool has the potential to serve currently unbanked, how can the Islamic microfinance sector reach the scale required? Sharia-compliant financing is unique and essentially different from conventional microfinance. The sector seeks to provide an economic empowerment tool for poor or disadvantaged people based on Islamic financing methods that avoid interest due to the ethical value proposition of Islamic economics. The growth of the microfinance sector is also conditioned by the meteoric rise of Islamic banking, with regulatory and legal frameworks in many countries even outside the Muslim world encouraging the diversification of financial products. Indeed, capital markets, banking and the insurance sector has taken great interest in Islamic finance and has begun playing a catalytic role in providing innovative solutions. This in turn has led a number of the stakeholders, including policy makers and investors to look more in more depth at the potential of Islamic microfinance for social and financial returns. The experts invited to the 37th Midi de la microfinance, Mohammed Kroessin, Head of Global Islamic Microfinance Unit, Islamic Relief Worldwide UK, and Fadoua Boudiba, Senior Investment Manager for MENA and Africa, Triodos, Netherlands will discuss about the development and the contribution of the Islamic microfinance to the financial inclusion. The speakers will discuss the main principles of the Islamic microfinance, as well as challenges it copes with today and the opportunities of its expansion. They’ll also explain how the sector deals with social performance standards, woman empowerment and economic development. David Demulier, Senior project manager at a French public financial institution and a passionate about the Islamic and the Middle-East culture, will moderate the discussion. Same event, coorganized with BRS, will take place also in Brussels at the Microfinance Lunchbreak on December 13, 2016 at the auditorium of KBC.
