How Islamic Banks Are Different From Conventional Ones

“When I established Dar Al Sharia in 2004, Islamic retail banking was confined to merely a couple of products and it was difficult to wean individuals away from conventional banks. Alhamdolillah, Islamic banks’ shelf is now complete with an array of retail products - thanks to Sharia scholars, lawyers and bankers for working with us to offer Sharia compliant and better alternates to customers. I look forward to sharing my thoughts at the Annual Open Fatwa Session at the 8th WIRBC”.
