Shariah philosophy

Islamic Finance differs from conventional finance in the following ways:

  • Ban on interest (Riba)
  • Ban on uncertainty (Gharar)
  • Ban on speculation and gambling (Maisir)
  • Risks and profits are shared among all parties
  • Ethical investments that enhance society
  • Underlying assets must be tangible and identifiable
