Murabaha Logo

The Murabaha principal is used by most Islamic Banks and Financial Institutions worldwide as a convenient mode of finance for most types of asset-based financing: vehicle/machinery financing, trade finance, import and export etc.

In a Murabaha transaction, the seller and the buyer reach an agreement to trade a specific commodity with a certain profit added to the cost. It is compulsory on the seller to disclose the actual cost of the commodity and his/her profit mark-up, which can be a specific amount or a percentage of the cost. Both parties should reach an agreement on this matter beforehand.

Deferred settlement, either as a lump-sum full payment or in monthly instalments, is also allowed in Murabaha financing.

Mudharabah Logo

Mudharabah is a common equity-based Islamic mode of investment where profits are shared among investors on a pre-determined ratio. The parties involved are referred to as the Rabbul Mal (The Financial Provider) and the Mudharib (Fund Manager).

In a Mudharabah partnership, the Mudharib (Al Salamah) manages and prudently invests the Mudharabah Fund which consist investments collected from a pool of Arbaabul Mal (investors). The Rabbul Mal is rewarded for his/her risk and the Mudharib for their entrepreneurship.

In a rare and unlikely event of a loss, unless it is resulted from the negligence of the Mudharib, the entire loss will be absorbed by the Mudharabah Fund prior to the distribution of any profits.

The Sharia Supervisory Council will strictly monitor the investments from the Mudharabah Fund to ensure total sharia compliance.
