This booklet tells you about the basic concepts and principles of Islamic banking. What is Islamic banking? Islamic banking is banking based on Islamic law (Shariah). It follows the Shariah, called fiqh muamalat (Islamic rules on transactions). The rules and practices of fiqh muamalat came from the Quran and the Sunnah, and other secondary sources of Islamic law such as opinions collectively agreed among Shariah scholars (ijma’), analogy (qiyas) and personal reasoning (ijtihad). Islamic banking in Malaysia • The first Islamic bank was established in Malaysia in 1983. • In 1993, commercial banks, merchant banks and finance companies begun to offer Islamic banking products and services under the Islamic Banking Scheme (IBS banks). • The IBS banks have to separate the funds and activities of the Islamic banking transactions from the non- Islamic banking business (conventional banking). • You can identify an Islamic bank or an IBS bank from the logo below: 1 bankinginfo info perbankan

Observing Shariah principles All Islamic banks and IBS banks have set up Shariah Committees to guide them on Shariah matters and to make sure that they function in a manner that is in line with the Shariah. In addition, the advice of the Shariah Advisory Council which is the highest Shariah body set up at Bank Negara Malaysia, can be sought to ensure uniformity in views and practices. The members of the Shariah Committees and the Shariah Advisory Council are academicians and Shariah experts in Islamic banking and finance. Shariah concepts in Islamic banking The common Shariah concepts are as follows: Wadiah (Safekeeping) Wadiah means custody or safekeeping. In a Wadiah arrangement, you will deposit cash or other assets in a bank for safekeeping. The bank guarantees the safety of the items kept by it. info perbankan bankinginfo 2

Here is how it works: You Mudharabah (Profit sharing) Mudharabah is a profit sharing arrangement between two parties, that is, an investor and the entrepreneur. The investor will supply the entrepreneur with funds for his business venture and gets a return on the funds he puts into the business based on a profit sharing ratio that has been agreed earlier. The principle of Mudharabah can be applied to Islamic banking operations in 2 ways: between a bank (as the entrepreneur) and the capital provider, and between a bank (as capital provider) and the entrepreneur. Losses suffered shall be borne by the capital provider. 1) You supply funds to the bank after agreeing on the terms of the Mudharabah arrangement. 2) Bank invests funds in assets or in projects. 3) Business may make profit or incur loss. 4) Profit is shared between you and your bank based on a pre- agreed ratio. 5) Any loss will be borne by you. This will reduce the value of the assets/ investments and hence, the amount of funds you have supplied to the bank. 5 1 B A N K 2 bankinginfo Investment / Asset 4 info perbankan 4 3 + Profit / Loss -

Murabahah (Cost plus) As in BBA, a Murabahah transaction involves the sale of goods at a price which includes a profit margin agreed by both parties. However, in Murabahah, the seller must let the buyer know the actual cost for the asset and the profit margin at the time of the sale agreement. Musyarakah (Joint venture) In the context of business and trade, Musyarakah refers to a partnership or a joint business venture to make profit. Profits made will be shared by the partners based on an agreed ratio which may not be in the same proportion as the amount of investment made by the partners. However, losses incurred will be shared based on the ratio of funds invested by each partner. Ijarah Thumma Bai’ (Hire purchase) Ijarah Thumma Bai’ is normally used in financing consumer goods especially motor vehicles. There are two separate contracts involved: Ijarah contract (leasing/renting) and Bai’ contract (purchase). The contracts are made one after the other as shown in the diagram on page 7. info perbankan bankinginfo 6

Wakalah (Agency) This is a contract whereby a person (principal) asks another party to act on his behalf (as his agent) for a specific task. The person who takes on the task is an agent who will be paid a fee for his services. Example A customer asks a bank to pay someone under certain terms. The bank is therefore the agent for carrying out the financial transaction and the bank will be paid a fee for its services. Qard (Interest-free loan) Under this arrangement, a loan is given for a fixed period on a goodwill basis and the borrower is only required to repay the amount borrowed. However, the borrower may, if he so wishes, pay an extra amount (without promising it) as a way to thank the lender. Example A lender who lent RM5,000 to a borrower on Qard will expect the borrower to return exactly RM5,000 to him at a later date. bankinginfo 8 info perbankan
