  • An economic theory of Islamic finance

    • Pages: 117 - 132
      Abstract: ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance, Volume 9, Issue 2, Page 117-132, December 2017.
      Purpose This paper aims to provide an economic rationale for Islamic finance. Design/methodology/approach Its methodology is simple. It starts with listing the contributions to economic analysis relevant to the required rationale in the theories of banking, finance, price, money and macroeconomics, to identify the main rationale for Islamic finance. A concise description of the author’s model for an Islamic economic system, within which Islamic finance can be operational, is provided. Findings The paper finds distinct advantages of Islamic finance, when properly applied within the author’s model. Islamic finance can therefore be a candidate as a reform agenda for conventional finance. It opens the door for significant monetary reform in currently prevalent economic systems. Research limitations/implications The first limitation of the paper is that the distinct benefits of Islamic finance are all of macroeconomic types which are external to Islamic banking and finance institutions. They are therefore not expected to motivate such institutions to apply Islamic finance to the letter, without regulators interference to ensure strict application. The second limitation is the necessity to set up enabling institutional and regulatory arrangements for Islamic finance. Originality/value The results are unique as they challenge the received doctrine and provide non-religious rationale for Islamic finance.

  • CSR practices of Palestinian Islamic banks: contribution to socio-economic
           development

    • Pages: 133 - 147
      Abstract: ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance, Volume 9, Issue 2, Page 133-147, December 2017.
      Purpose Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is an important corporate activity that affirms the importance of giving back to the community. This research aims to examine the CSR practices of Palestinian Islamic banks and their contribution to socio-economic development. There is an ongoing debate regarding Islamic financial institutions’ profit motive versus their motivation to achieve human welfare. The Palestinian Islamic banks are not disconnected from this debate, and this paper aims to discuss this issue. Design/methodology/approach For the purpose of assessing the CSR practices of Palestinian Islamic banks, a secondary analysis of the banks’ annual reports was carried out. In addition, 11 structured interviews were conducted with Islamic banks’ practitioners at the decision-making level and with some of the banks’ Sharīʿah board members to gather their views on CSR. These have been analyzed in light of the actual CSR practices disclosed in each bank’s annual reports. Findings The main research findings suggest that the CSR practice is highly valued by the Palestinian Islamic banks, but it is small and has marginal effects on the community’s socio-economic development. Another important observation from report analysis is that Islamic banks have great potential for expansion, given that the demand for Islamic financial transactions is double of what Islamic banks currently offer. If Islamic banks live up to that opportunity, they could deliver more in CSR practices, which is their ultimate goal according to the majority of the interviewees. Originality/value Existing literature has presented findings on the CSR of Palestinian corporations in general, but there is no available literature on the CSR practices of Palestinian Islamic banks. This research attempts to fill in the gap by presenting preliminary findings on Palestinian Islamic banks’ CSR practices.

  • The concept and application of ḍamān al-milkiyyah (ownership
           risk)

    • Pages: 148 - 163
      Abstract: ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance, Volume 9, Issue 2, Page 148-163, December 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to elucidate the concept of ḍamān al-milkiyyah (ownership risk) and to assess its application in contemporary Islamic financial products and services. Design/methodology/approach The methodology adopted is that of descriptive research. Findings From an Islamic law of contract perspective, the concept of ḍamān al-milkiyyah is central to legitimate profit-making transactions and hence must be adhered to in practical applications of Islamic finance. Research limitations/implications This study should help motivate further investigation into the position of ḍamān al-milkiyyah among different parties in existing Islamic financial products and services. Practical implications Policymakers and regulators should ensure that Islamic financial products and services are structured in a way that does not allow parties to profit without adequately bearing the liability for potential loss. Social implications The condition of ḍamān al-milkiyyah as a source of legitimate profit reflects the idea that the role of finance in Islam is to promote and ensure social benefits.

  • Corporate demand for general takāful in Malaysia

    • Pages: 164 - 184
      Abstract: ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance, Volume 9, Issue 2, Page 164-184, December 2017.
      Purpose This study on corporate demand for general takāful (Islamic insurance) aims to identify potential growth areas and areas for improvement in takāful business practices in Malaysia. Design/methodology/approach A survey on corporates’ protection needs, takāful/insurance coverage obtained and awareness on takāful/insurance was conducted for this paper. Findings The findings from the survey are as follows: There is potential for takāful operators to further penetrate the corporate sector, as the majority of respondents indicated willingness to spend on takāful/insurance. Emphasis on takāful value propositions apart from its Sharīʿah compliance status is needed to attract corporates, as respondents were found to be indifferent on Sharīʿah compliance status of their protection. Strong market presence, expanded product offerings and efficient services were key determinants to attract takāful subscription. Respondents’ heavy reliance on intermediaries warrants strong collaboration with intermediaries to widen market outreach. The small and medium enterprises segment appeared promising, as it is found to be underserved despite having higher propensity to obtain takāful/insurance coverage compared to the overall respondents. Research limitations/implications This study is limited to Malaysia’s experience. The findings are indicative (though they may not be conclusive) of the target segment as well as the takāful industry as a whole. Originality/value The insights on respondents’ considerations when obtaining takāful/insurance coverage and the correlation of these factors with respondents’ characteristics can assist takāful/insurance providers in structuring products and business strategies to better serve this market segment. The paper may also aid discussions among researchers and regulators on areas for further development of the industry.

  • Preference shares: analysis of Sharīʿah issues

    • Pages: 185 - 189
      Abstract: ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance, Volume 9, Issue 2, Page 185-189, December 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to analyze the different features of preference shares from accounting and Sharīʿah perspectives. It also aims to study Sharīʿah issues arising from preference shares and to subsequently propose solutions for identified issues that will help in structuring Islamic preference shares. Design/methodology/approach The paper uses a qualitative method by analyzing relevant documents and literature to understand the subject matter and Sharīʿah-related issues. Findings The paper finds that several features of conventional preference shares, such as capital guarantee, loss sharing disproportionate to capital contribution, fixed profit, profit guarantee and waiver of rights before realization of profit, make them a Sharīʿah non-compliant instrument. Research limitations/implications The paper is conceptual in nature; however, it provides directions for future empirical research. Originality/value The paper provides a practicable solution to structure Sharīʿah-compliant preference shares.

  • Financial reporting of intangible assets in Islamic finance

    • Pages: 190 - 195
      Abstract: ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance, Volume 9, Issue 2, Page 190-195, December 2017.
      Purpose This paper aims to address the financial reporting dimensions of intangible assets with specific reference to International Accounting Standards (IAS) 38 as well as relevant International Financial Reporting Standards (IAS 38 exclusion) that are embedded within intangible assets. These have implications for Islamic financial assets with identifiable and measurable intangible components. Design/methodology/approach The study uses the qualitative research method by way of interviews followed by focus group discussions with professional accountants/accounting academics and Sharīʿah scholars/advisors from academia, the industry and regulatory bodies. Analysis of relevant literature is made to understand the subject matter and Sharīʿah-related issues. Findings The study observes that the accounting dimensions of tangible assets are generally consistent with Sharīʿah requirements. However, significant variation arises when the dimensions of intangible assets are represented in financial assets. Research limitations/implications The paper presents an exploratory in-depth analysis within the context of intangible assets as specified in IAS 38. Originality/value The paper elucidates the comparative accounting dimensions and Sharīʿah requirements in reporting financial assets.

  • Sharīʿah non-compliant assets as rahn (pledge) in Islamic banking
           products: a fiqhī perspective

    • Pages: 196 - 199
      Abstract: ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance, Volume 9, Issue 2, Page 196-199, December 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this study is to present a framework regarding the use of Sharīʿah non-compliant assets as rahn (pledge) and to provide the Sharīʿah analysis on the application of numerous collateral instruments, including financial assets such as shares, unit trusts, current accounts and investment accounts which are Sharīʿah non-compliant. Design/methodology/approach The study adopts a library-based approach to examine the concept and requirements of rahn, deliberate the classification of Sharīʿah non-compliant assets and delineate the Sharīʿah views on the use of Sharīʿah non-compliant assets as pledges. It also examines the various forms of pledge available and offered in the market using document analysis as well as through discussion with industry practitioners. Findings In general, the study concludes that Sharīʿah non-compliant assets, either due to their essence or due to the means of acquisition where there is no ownership from Sharīʿah perspective, cannot be used as rahn. This study also provides the Sharīʿah analysis on the use of modern instruments such as shares, unit trusts, current accounts, investment accounts and insurance policy as pledges. Originality/value The paper provides a reference source for regulators in formulating an appropriate policy and framework on Sharīʿah-compliant collateral; Sharīʿah committees of Islamic financial institutions in arriving at Sharīʿah decisions on collateral; and industry practitioners in establishing internal policies and procedures on collateral.

  • Contra trading in Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad: a Sharīʿah
           and legal appraisal

    • Pages: 200 - 204
      Abstract: ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance, Volume 9, Issue 2, Page 200-204, December 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to analyze the practice of contra trading in Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad. Through a critical examination of the practice, it aims to discuss the issues from the angles of Sharīʿah and Malaysian common law. Design/methodology/approach The paper uses a qualitative research methodology. The information on the practice of contra trading is obtained through the Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad’s website and literature as well as series of meetings and discussions held with Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad. In comprehending and dissecting the Sharīʿah and legal issues, classical along with contemporary Sharīʿah literature including local and international Sharīʿah advisory bodies’ resolutions and standards have been referred to. The Sharīʿah analysis of these issues is further supported by reference to the statute and by-laws of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad as well as other related legal literature. Findings This paper finds that contra trading involves a real sale and purchase of shares; the shares are not taken into the possession of the contra trader, neither physically nor constructively; the liability of shares is not transferred to the contra trader; though the practice of profiting in contra trading may contradict the prohibition on profiting without bearing liability, the permissibility of contra trading could still be argued from the contextual approach of public interest (maṣlaḥah) and needs (hājah); and contra trading is not gambling. Research limitations/implications This paper is limited in its analysis to only Sharīʿah and legal perspectives. It does not cover a thorough empirical and quantitative investigation that would measure the extent of the public needs for contra trading and the real benefits that contra trading brings about to the society in the long run. Such studies will further demonstrate whether contra trading deserves a relaxation from the strict Sharīʿah ruling thus affirming the issue of permissibility of contra trading. Moving forward, this paper recommends ways to address the predicaments faced in the contra trading practices as well important research areas that could be taken up in future. Originality/value This paper provides an in-depth investigation of the practice of contra trading at the Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad from the angles of Sharīʿah and common law.

  • The goods and services tax (GST) on takāful products: a critical
           Sharīʿah appraisal

    • Pages: 205 - 209
      Abstract: ISRA International Journal of Islamic Finance, Volume 9, Issue 2, Page 205-209, December 2017.
      Purpose This paper aims to ascertain the Sharīʿah (Islamic law) stance on the imposition of goods and services tax (GST) on tabarruʿ-based takāful (donation-based Islamic insurance) products in Malaysia. The paper aims to do so by analysing the philosophy, purposes and structure of GST on takāful products and comparing the imposition of GST on tabarruʿ-based takāful with its imposition on conventional insurance while probing into the Sharīʿah texts and opinions of classical and contemporary scholars about taxation in Islam. Design/methodology/approach The paper uses a qualitative research methodology. In addition to the literature and text on websites, the information on how GST is applied in practice is also obtained through interviews, discussions and documents from takāful operators. To determine the Sharīʿah position on GST, reference has been made to classical and contemporary Sharīʿah literature, including local and international Sharīʿah advisory bodies’ resolutions and standards. Findings This study finds that a strict interpretation of Sharīʿah does not allow for the imposition of GST; however, there is still room for the government to justify it using a broader interpretation of maṣlaḥah (public interest). Takāful has become a need for the society and is subscribed to by all income groups, and not only by the rich. Hence, the government should consider exempting takāful products from GST. The basis of tabarruʿ in takāful does not provide conclusive Sharīʿah evidence for takāful to be exempted from GST. Originality/value This research paves the way for the industry to propose further measures on GST for takāful products such as the exemption of GST on the tabarruʿ amount or imposition of a zero rate of GST on the relevant takāful fees and charges that are currently burdensome to consumers.
