Appendix III: Glossary on Islamic

Al Ghunm bil Ghurm: This provides the rationale and the principle of profit-
sharing in Shirkah arrangements. Earning profit is legitimized only by engaging
in an economic venture, risk sharing and thereby contributing to the economy.

Al-Aariyah (Gratuitous loan of non-fungible objects): Al-Aariyah means the loan

of a particular piece of property, the substance of which is not consumed by its
use, without anything being taken in exchange. In other words, it is the gift of
usufruct of a property or commodity that is not consumed on use. It is different
from Qard, which is the loan of fungible objects which are consumed on use and
in which the similar and not the same commodity has to be returned. It is also
a virtuous act like Qard. The borrowed commodity is treated as liability of the
borrower who is bound to return it to its owner.

Al-Kafalah (Suretyship): Literally, Kafalah means responsibility, amenability or

suretyship. Legally, in Kafalah a third party becomes surety for the payment of
debt. It is a pledge given to a creditor that the debtor will pay the debt, fine,
etc. Suretyship in Islamic law is the creation of an additional liability with regard
to the claim, not to the debt or the assumption only of a liability and not of
the debt.

Al-Qur’an (also written as the Qur’an only): The Holy Book of Muslims, con-
sisting of the revelations made by God to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon
him). The Qur’an lays down the fundamentals of the Islamic faith, including
beliefs and all aspects of the Islamic way of life.

Al-Rahn: Pledge, collateral; legally, Rahn means to pledge or lodge a real or corpo-
real property of material value, in accordance with the law, as security, for a debt
or pecuniary obligation so as to make it possible for the creditor to recover the
debt or some portion of the goods or property. In the pre-Islamic contracts, Rahn
implied a type of earnest money which was lodged as a guarantee and material
evidence or proof of a contract, especially when there was no scribe available to
put it into writing. The institution of earnest money was not accepted in Islamic
law and the common Islamic doctrine recognized Rahn only as a security for the
payment of a debt.

Al-Sarf : Basically, in pre-Islamic times it was exchange of gold for gold, silver for
silver and gold for silver or vice versa. In Islamic law such exchange is regarded as
‘sale of price for price’ (Bai al Thaman bil Thaman), and each price is consideration
of the other. It also means sale of monetary value for monetary value – currency
Amanah: It refers to deposits in trust. A person can hold a property in trust
for another, sometimes by express contract and sometimes by implication of a

Appendix III: Glossary on Islamic Finance 181

contract. Amanah entails absence of liability for loss except in breach of duty.
Current Accounts are regarded as Amanah (trust). If the bank gets authority to
use Current Accounts funds in his business, Amanah transforms into a loan.
As every loan has to be repaid, banks are liable to repay full amount of the Current

Arbun: Down payment; a non-refundable deposit paid by a buyer retaining a

right to confirm or cancel the sale.

Awqaf : Plural of waqf. Waqf means appropriation or tying up a property in

perpetuity for specific purposes. No property rights can be exercised over the
corpus. Only the usufruct is applied towards the objectives (usually charitable) of
the waqf.

Ayah: A verse of al-Qur’an.

Bai bil Wafa: Sale with a right in the seller, having the effect of a condition, to
repurchase (redeem) the property by refunding the purchase price. According to
majority of Fuqaha it is not permissible.

Bai Muajjal: Literally, it means a credit sale. Technically, a financing technique

adopted by Islamic banks that takes the form of Murabaha Muajjal. It is a con-
tract in which the seller earns a profit margin on his purchase price and allows
the buyer to pay the price of the commodity at a future date in a lump sum
or in installments. He has to expressly mention cost of the commodity and the
margin of profit is mutually agreed. The price fixed for the commodity in such
a transaction can be the same as the spot price or higher or lower than the spot

Bai Salam: Salam means a contract in which advance payment is made for goods
to be delivered later on. The seller undertakes to supply some specific goods to
the buyer at a future date in exchange of an advance price fully paid at the time of
contract. According to normal rules of the Shariah, no sale can be effected unless
the goods are in existence at the time of the bargain, but Salam sale forms an
exception given by the Holy Prophet (SAW) himself to the general rule provided
the goods are defined and the date of delivery is fixed. It is necessary that the
quality of the commodity intended to be purchased is fully specified leaving no
ambiguity leading to dispute. The objects of this sale are goods and cannot be
gold, silver or currencies because these are regarded as monetary values exchange
of which is covered under rules of Bai al Sarf, i.e. mutual exchange is hand to
hand without delay. Barring this, Bai Salam covers almost everything which is
capable of being definitely described as to quantity, quality and workmanship.

Bay al-salam: A sale in which payment is made in advance by the buyer and the
delivery of the goods is deferred by the seller.

Bay: Stands for sale. It is often used as a prefix in referring to different sales-based
modes of Islamic finance, like murabahah, ijarah, istisna, and salam.
Daman: (1) Contract of guarantee, security or collateral; (2) Responsibility
of entrepreneur/manager of a business; one of two basic relationships toward
property, entailing bearing the risk of its loss; compare Amanah.
182 Appendix III: Glossary on Islamic Finance

Dayn (or Debt): A Dayn comes into existence as a result of any other contract
or credit transaction. It is incurred either by way of rent or sale or purchase or
in any other way which leaves it as a debt to another. Duyun (debts) ought to be
returned without any profit since they are advanced to help the needy and meet
their demands and, therefore, the lender should not impose on the borrower
more than what he had given on credit.

Falah: Falah means to thrive, to become happy or to have luck and success.
Technically it implies success both in this world and in the Akhirah (Hereafter).
The Falah presumes belief in one God, the apostlehood of Prophet Muhammad
(Peace be upon him), Akhirah and conformity to the Shariah in behaviour.

Fatawa: Plural of fatwa. Religious verdicts by fuqaha.

Fiqh: Refers to the whole corpus of Islamic jurisprudence. In contrast with con-
ventional law, fiqh covers all aspects of life, religious, political, social, commercial
or economic. The whole corpus of fiqh is based primarily on interpretations of the
Qur’an and the Sunnah and secondarily on ijma (consensus) and ijtihad (individ-
ual judgment). While the Qur’an and the Sunnah are immutable, fiqhi verdicts
may change due to changing circumstances.

Fuqaha: Plural of faqîh meaning jurist, who gives opinion on various juristic
issues in the light of the Qur’an and the Sunnah.

Gharar: It means any element of absolute or excessive uncertainty in any busi-

ness or a contract about the subject of contract or its price, or mere speculative
risk. It leads to undue loss to a party and unjustified enrichment of other, which
is prohibited.

Ghish: Literally means deception, fraud. Technically, means trying to deceive

someone by concealing vital information in a deal.

Hadith: Sayings, deeds and reactions of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon

him) narrated by his companions.

Halal: Anything permitted by the Shariah.

Haram: Anything prohibited by the Shariah.

Hawalah: Literally, it means transfer; legally, it is an agreement by which a debtor

is freed from a debt by another becoming responsible for it, or the transfer of a
claim of a debt by shifting the responsibility from one person to another – con-

Islamic banks. It is a contract under which the Islamic bank finances equipment,
building or other facilities for the client against an agreed rental together with
a unilateral undertaking by the bank or the client that at the end of the lease
period, the ownership in the asset would be transferred to the lessee. The under-
taking or the promise does not become an integral part of the lease contract to
make it conditional. The rental as well as the purchase price is fixed in such a
manner that the bank gets back its principal sum along with some profit, which
is usually determined in advance.

Ijma: Consensus of all or majority of the leading qualified jurists on a certain

Shariah matter in a certain age.

revelation is not explicit or certain, on the basis of Nass or evidence found in
the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah. Express injunctions have no room for Ijtihad.
Implied injunctions can be interpreted in different ways by way of inference from
the accepted principles of the Shariah.

Illah: It is the attribute of an event that entails a particular Divine ruling in

all cases possessing that attribute. Illah is the basis for applying analogy for
determining permissibility or otherwise of any act or transaction.

then resell an object between them, once for cash and once for a higher price on
credit, with the net result of a loan with interest.

a given period. A similar contract is ‘Ujrah’ in which any work is done against
stipulated wage or fee.

Kali bil-Kali: The term Kali refers to something delayed; appears in a maxim
forbidding the sale of al-Kali bil-Kali i.e. the exchange of a delayed counter value
for another delayed counter value.

Kharaj bi-al-Daman: Gain accompanies liability for loss; a Hadith forming a

legal maxim and a basic principle – see also Al- Ghunm bil Ghurm.

Khilafat al-Rashidah: The period of the first four caliphs after the Prophet
(peace be upon him), ranging from the year 11AH (632 AC) to the year 41AH
(661 AC).

Khiyar al-Majlis: Option of the contracting session; the power to annul a

Khiyar al-Shart: A right, stipulated by one or both of the parties to a contract, to

cancel the contract for any reason for a fixed period of time.

Khiyar al-shart: Option to rescind a sales contract. One of the parties to a sales

Maisir: An ancient Arabian game of chance played with arrows without heads
and feathering, for stakes of slaughtered and quartered camels. It came to be
identified with all types of hazard and gambling.

Mal-e-Mutaqawam: Things the use of which is lawful under the Shariah; or

wealth that has a commercial value. Legal tenders of modern age that carry
monetary value are included in Mal-e-Mutaqawam. It is possible that certain
wealth has no commercial value for Muslims (non-Mutaqawam) but is valuable
for non-Muslims. Examples are wine and pork.

Mithli (Fungible goods): Goods that can be returned in kind, i.e. gold for gold,
silver for silver, wheat for wheat, etc.

Mubah: Object that is lawful (i.e. something which is permissible to use or

trade in).

Mudarabah: A form of partnership where one party provides the funds while
the other provides expertise and management. The latter is referred to as the
Mudarib. Any profits accrued are shared between the two parties on a pre-agreed
basis, while loss is borne by the provider(s) of the capital.

Murabaha: Literally it means a sale on mutually agreed profit. Technically, it is

a contract of sale in which the seller declares his cost and the profit. This has
been adopted by Islamic banks as a mode of financing. As a financing technique,
it can involve a request by the client to the bank to purchase a certain item for
him. The bank does that for a definite profit over the cost which is stipulated in
Appendix III: Glossary on Islamic Finance 185

Musaqah: A contract in which the owner of a garden agrees to share its produce
with someone in an agreed proportion in return for latter’s services in irrigating
and looking after the garden.

Musawamah: Musawamah is a general kind of sale in which price of the com-

modity to be traded is bargained between seller and the purchaser without any
reference to the price paid or cost incurred by the former.

Musharakah: Musharakah means a relationship established under a contract by

the mutual consent of the parties for sharing of profits and losses in the joint
business. It is an agreement under which the Islamic bank provides funds which
are mixed with the funds of the business enterprise and others. All providers of
capital are entitled to participate in management, but not necessarily required to
do so. The profit is distributed among the partners in pre-agreed ratios, while
the loss is borne by every partner strictly in proportion to respective capital

Qabul: Acceptance, in a contract; see also Ijab.

Qard (Loan of fungible objects): The literal meaning of Qard is ‘to cut’. It is
so called because the property is really cut off when it is given to the borrower.
Legally, Qard means to give anything having value in the ownership of the other
by way of virtue so that the latter could avail of the same for his benefit with
the condition that same or similar amount of that thing would be paid back on
demand or at the settled time. It is that loan which a person gives to another as a
help, charity or advance for a certain time. The repayment of loan is obligatory.
The Holy Prophet is reported to have said “ . . . . Every loan must be paid . . . . . . ”.
But if a debtor is in difficulty, the creditor is expected to extend time or even
to voluntarily remit the whole or a part of the principal. Qard is, in fact, a par-
ticular kind of Salaf. Loans under Islamic law can be classified into Salaf and
Qard, the former being loan for fixed time and the latter payable on demand (see

Qard al-hasan: A loan extended without interest or any other compensation

from the borrower. The lender expects a reward only from God.

Qimar: Qimar means gambling. Technically, it is an arrangement in which pos-

session of a property is contingent upon the happening of an uncertain event.
By implication it applies to a situation in which there is a loss for one party and
a gain for the other without specifying which party will lose and which will gain.

Qiyas: Literally it means measure, example, comparison or analogy. Technically,

it means a derivation of the law on the analogy of an existing law if the basis
(illah) of the two is the same. It is one of the sources of Islamic law.

Rabb al-mal: Capital owner (financier) in a mudarabah contract.

Riba Al-Fadl: Riba Al-Fadl (excess) is the quality premium in exchange of low
quality with better quality goods e.g. dates for dates, wheat for wheat, etc. –
an excess in the exchange of Ribawi goods within a single genus. The Con-
cept of Riba Al-Fadl refers to sale transactions while Riba Al-Nasiah refers to loan
186 Appendix III: Glossary on Islamic Finance

Riba Al-Nasiah: Riba Al-Nasiah or riba of delay is due to exchange not being
immediate with or without excess in one of the counter values. It is an increment
on principal of a loan or debt payable. It refers to the practice of lending money
for any length of time on the understanding that the borrower would return
to the lender at the end of the period the amount originally lent together with
an increase on it, in consideration of the lender having granted him time to
pay. Interest, in all modern banking transactions, falls under purview of Riba Al-
Nasiah. As money in present banking system is exchanged for money with excess
and delay, it falls, under the definition of riba. A general accord reached among
scholar about its prohibition.
Riba: An excess or increase. Technically, it means an increase over principal in a
loan transaction or in exchange for a commodity accrued to the owner (lender)
without giving an equivalent counter-value or recompense (iwad) in return to
the other party; every increase which is without an iwad or equal counter-value.
Ribawi: Goods subject to Fiqh rules on Riba in sales, variously defined by the
schools of Islamic Law: items sold by weight and by measure, foods, etc.
Salaf (or Loan/Debt): The word Salaf literally means a loan which draws forth
no profit for the creditor. In wider sense, it includes loans for specified periods,
i.e. short, intermediate and long-term loans. Salaf is another name of Salam as
well, wherein price of the commodity is paid in advance while the commodity or
the counter value is supplied in future; thus the contract creates a liability for the
seller. Amount given as Salaf cannot be called back, unlike Qard, before it is due.
Shariah: The term Shariah refers to divine guidance as given by the Holy Qur’an
and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and embodies all aspects of
the Islamic faith, including beliefs and practice.
Shirkah: A contract between two or more persons who launch a business or
financial enterprise to make profits. In the conventional books of Fiqh, the part-
nership business has been discussed under the option of Shirkah that, broadly,
may include both Musharakah and Mudarabah.
Sunnah: Custom, habit or way of life. Technically, it refers to the utterances of
the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) other than the Holy Quran known as Hadith,
or his personal acts, or sayings of others, tacitly approved by the Prophet.
Tabarru: It is a donation/gift the purpose of which is not commercial but is seek-
ing the pleasure of Allah. Any benefit that is given by a person to other without
getting anything in exchange is called Tabarru. Gracious repayment of debt, abso-
lutely at lender’s own discretion and without any prior condition or inducement
for reward, is also covered under Tabarru. Repaying a loan in excess of principal
and without a pre-condition is commendable and compatible with the Sunnah of
the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). But, it is matter of individual discretion
and cannot be adopted as a system because this would mean that loan would
necessarily yield a profit. If such reward takes the form of a system, it would be
considered Riba.
Tabzir: Spending wastefully on objects which have been explicitly prohibited by
the Shariah irrespective of the quantum of expenditure. See also Israf.
Appendix III: Glossary on Islamic Finance 187

Takaful: An alternative for the contemporary insurance contract. A group of per-

sons agree to share certain risk (e.g. damage by fire) by collecting a specified
sum from each. In case of loss to anyone of the group, the loss is met from the
collected funds.

Tawakkul: Trust in God for results after one has undertaken all necessary effort.
It is one of the important values for Muslims. After making all necessary efforts,
a Muslim believes that the results are in the hand of God.

Ujrah: See Jua’alah.

Wadiah: A contract whereby a person leaves valuables with someone for safe-
keeping. The keeper can charge a fee, even though in Islamic culture it is
encouraged to provide this service free of charge or to recover only the costs
of safekeeping without any profit.

Wakalah: A contract of agency in which one person appoints someone else to

perform a certain task on his behalf, usually against a certain fee.

Waqf : Appropriation or tying up a property in perpetuity for specific purposes.

No property rights can be exercised over the corpus. Only the usufruct is applied
towards the objectives (usually charitable) of the waqf.

Zakah: The amount payable by a Muslim on his net worth as a part of his
religious obligations, mainly for the benefit of the poor and the needy.

1 Islamic Finance: An Introduction

1. An event in which there is a possibility of total loss to one party. Maysir has
elements of gharar, but not every gharar is maysir.
2. Gharar is the sale of probable items whose existence or characteristics are not
certain, due to the risky nature which makes the trade similar to gambling.
The sale of fish in the sea and the birds in the sky are examples of this.
3. This hadith is reported by all the six famous books of hadith (see Ibn ul-
humam, Fath-ul-humam, Fath-ul-Qadir v. 6, p. 25).
4. In the case of a Sovereign Sukuk, the underlying assets (such as toll roads and
utilities) will need to be permitted assets from a Shariah perspective.

1. (Qur’an 5:3). ‘5’ indicates the chapter number and ‘3’ indicates the verse
2. Qur’an is the highest and most authentic authority in Islam. It consists the
sacred writings of Islam revealed by Allah (God) to the prophet Muhammad
(PBUH) during his life at Mecca and Medina. Quotations from the Quran are
normally followed by a reference to the number of the chapter (sura) and the
number of the quoted verse (aya). All Quranic texts in this thesis are printed
in italics.
3. It is a collection of the Prophet’s sayings and deeds, including his opin-
ions about matters, as well as the practices of his companions. The sunnah
occupies a place second to the Qur’an.
4. A committee of religious advisers whose opinion is sought on the acceptabil-
ity of new instruments, and which conduct a religious audit of the bank’s
activities as well as other features reflecting their religious status. These are

13. Jabir ibn Abdallah, giving a report on the Prophet’s Farewell Pilgrimage, said:
The Prophet, peace and blessings of God be on him, addressed the people
and said: All of the riba of Jahilliyyah is annulled. The first riba that I annul
is our riba, that accruing to Abbas ibn Abd al-Muttalib (the Prophet’s uncle);
it is being cancelled completely. (Muslim, Kitab al-Hajj, Bab Hajjat al-Nabi,
may peace be on him; also in Musnad Ahmad).
14. Al-Qur’an (106:2).
15. Abd al-Rahman al-Jaziri’s book ‘Al-Fiqh Ala al-Madhahib al-Arba‘ah’ is a com-
pendium on the juristic opinions of the four predominant schools of Muslim
jurisprudence. It is held in high esteem and considered to be an authority on
the subject.
16. From Abu Hurayrah: The Prophet, peace be on him, said: “Riba has seventy
segments, the least serious being equivalent to a man committing adultery
with his own mother” (Ibn Majah).
17. Cited by Ibn Kathir in commentary on verse 2:275.
18. From Umar ibn al-Khattab: The last verse to be revealed was on riba and the
Prophet, peace be on him, was taken without elaborating it to us; so give up
not only riba but also ribah [whatever raises doubts in the mind about its
rightfulness] (Ibn Majah, op. cit.).
19. There are two Hadiths related to this:

(1) From Anas ibn Malik: The Prophet, peace be on him, said: “Deceiving
a mustarsal [an unknowing entrant into the market] is riba (Suyuti, al-
Jami al-Saghir, under the word ghabn; Kanz al Ummal, Kitab al-Buyu,
al-Bab al-thani, al-fasl al-thani, on the authority of Sunan al-Bayhaqi).
(2) From Abdallah ibn Abi Awfa: The Prophet, peace be on him, said:
“A najish (one who serves as an agent to bid up the price in an auction)
is a cursed taker of riba (Cited by Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani in his commen-
tary on al-Bukhari called Fath al-Bari, Kitab al-Buyu, Bab al-najash; also
in Suyuti, al-Jami al-Saghir, under the word alnajish and Kanz al-Ummal,
op. cit., both on the authority of Tabarani’s al-Kabir).

20. From Abu Umamah: The Prophet, peace be on him, said: “Whoever makes
a recommendation for his brother and accepts a gift offered by him has
190 Notes

entered riba through one of its large gates” (Bulugh al-Maram, Kitab al-Buyu,
Bab al-riba, reported on the authority of Ahmad and Abu Dawud).
21. This is explained in three hadiths:

(1) From Abu Sa‘id and Abu Hurayrah: A man employed by the Prophet,
peace be on him, in Khaybar brought for him janibs [dates of very fine
quality]. Upon the Prophet’s asking him whether all the dates of Khaybar
were such, the man replied that this was not the case and added that
they exchanged a sa’ [a measure] of this kind for two or three [of the
other kind]”. The Prophet, peace be on him, replied, “Do not do so.
Sell [the lower quality dates] for dirhams and then use the dirhams to
buy janibs.” [When dates are exchanged against dates] they should be
equal in weight”. (Bukhari, Kitab al-Buyu, Bab idha arada bay tamarin bi
tamarin khayrin minhu; also Muslim and Nasa’i).
(2) From Abu Sa’id: Bilal brought to the Prophet, peace be on him,
some barni [good quality] dates whereupon the Prophet asked him
where these were from. Bilal replied, “I had some inferior dates which
I exchanged for these – two sa’s for a sa’.” The Prophet said, “Oh no, this
is exactly riba. Do not do so, but when you wish to buy, sell the inferior
dates against something [cash] and then buy the better dates with the
price you receive”. (Muslim, Kitab al-Musaqat, Bab al-ta‘am mithlan bi
mithlin; also Musnad Ahmad).
(3) From Fadalah bin Ubayd al-Ansari: On the day of Khaybar he bought a
necklace of gold and pearls for twelve dinars. On separating the two, he
found that the gold itself was equal to more than twelve dinars. So he
mentioned this to the Prophet, peace be on him, who replied, “It [jew-
ellery] must not be sold until the contents have been valued separately”.
(Muslim, Kitab al-Musaqat, Bab bay al-qiladah fiha kharaz wa dhahab;
also in Tirmidhi and Nasa’i).

22. This is explained in two Hadiths:

(1) From Abu Sa‘id al-Khudri: The Prophet, peace be on him, said: “Do not
sell gold for gold except when it is like for like, and do not increase
one over the other; do not sell silver for silver except when it is like
for like, and do not increase one over the other; and do not sell what
is away [from among these] for what is ready”. (Bukhari, Kitab al-Buyu,
Bab bay al-fiddah bi al-fiddah; also Muslim, Tirmidhi, Nasa’i and Musnad
(2) From Abu Sa’id al-Khudri: The Prophet, peace be on him, said: “Gold for
gold, silver for silver, wheat for wheat, barley for barley, dates for dates,
and salt for salt – like for like, and hand-to-hand. Whoever pays more
or takes more has indulged in riba. The taker and the giver are alike [in
guilt]”. (Muslim, ibid; and Musnad Ahmad).

provides expertise and management. The latter is referred to as the Mudarib.
Any profits accrued are shared between the two parties in pre-agreed ratios,
while loss is borne by the provider of the capital.
28. Musharikah means a relationship established under a contract by the mutual
consent of the parties for sharing of profits and losses in the joint busi-
nesses. It is an agreement under which the Islamic bank provides funds,
which are mixed with the funds of the business enterprises and others.

not necessarily required to do so. The profit is distributed among the part-
ners in pre-agreed ratios, while the loss is borne by each partner strictly in

29. A contract under which an Islamic bank finances equipment, building or
other facilities for the client against an agreed rental together with a unilat-
eral undertaking by the bank or the client that at the end of the lease period,
the ownership in the asset would be transferred to the lessee. The undertak-
ing or the promise does not become an integral part of the lease contract to
make it conditional. The rental as well as the purchase price is fixed in such
manner that the bank gets back its principal sum along with profit, which is
usually determined in advance.
30. Literally, it means a sale on mutually agreed profit. Technically, it is a con-
tract of sale in which the seller declares his cost and profit. Islamic banks
have adopted this as a mode of financing. As financing technique, it involves
a request by the client to the bank to purchase a certain item for him. The
bank does that for a definite profit over the cost, which is settled in advance.
