Islamic Investments and Methods of Financing


The Objective Of Islamic  Banking
The objective of Islamic banking is to pool the Muslims' savings and direct them to investments, through Islamic-ally approved methods, with a view to making a contribution to the comprehensive development plans within their communities. The Islamic Shariah was a miracle in its provisions relating to work, profit, expenditure, savings, investment, and development. These provisions in their totality demonstrate that working for a living is an act of worship and that expenditure is permitted on lawful (Halal) activities, but not on prohibited (Haram) ones. Expenditure on the Halal is tied to moderation, avoiding extravagance or lavishness, and this undoubtedly results in savings from the remaining part of the income after expenditure.

Although Islam prohibits the hoarding of money and preventing its circulation, as its utilization produces more commodities and services, an individual or group should invest any savings in such a way as to exclude anything Haram. Those who are responsible for the Muslims should prepare development plans and make the potential available for the fulfillment of such plans by directing the available resources, and most importantly the human resources, to spearhead the execution of such plans with experience and sincerity.

The Islamic Shariah is a complete system covering all aspects of human life, governing actions by way of permission or prohibition. It is capable of ensuring people's welfare, meeting their needs, and administering
justice amongst them; whereas other systems that are contrary to it neglect people's welfare, bring harm, cause corruption, and destabilize the scales of justice. Therefore the Muslim nation, and their jurisprudents and experts should regulate life, particularly the economic aspects, in accordance with the approach established by Allah, and derive rulings that keep pace with new developments according to this approach.

The subjects of the investment of savings and the forms of financial investment projects are the raison d'etre of Islamic banks and the scope of their business. I shall address this topic in this presentation by briefly reviewing Islamic investments, their properties, and types, and then I shall discuss the forms available to Islamic banks at the present time.
