Providing clarity and an in-depth understanding of the differences between Islamic banking and conventional banking systems, this timely book examines Islamic economic capital from a variety of perspectives. It offers insight into the wider geographical context of Islamic banking beyond the Middle East and Southeast Asia, exploring other emerging economies.

Abdul Ghafar Ismail and Muhamed Zulkhibri look at how the industry has rapidly evolved by developing different types of Islamic financial products, catering for a wide range of economic sub-sectors including international trade, housing, infrastructure and energy, and agriculture. Offering key insights into the disparity between equity-based Islamic banking and debt-based conventional financing, the books provokes discussion on the avoidance of gharar and the need to cohere with Shari’ah principles.

A critical read for finance and Islamic studies scholars, the blend of theoretical and practical aspects of Islamic economic capital discussed will enhance readers’ understanding of the topic. This will also be a beneficial read for banking and finance practitioners, especially those working in countries with a dual banking system.
