Islamic Banking & Finance: Another Approach

by

A.L.M. Abdul Gafoor

 

The author of this booklet is also the author of the three titles given below.  Each of them is self contained, treats a specific topic, and provides a new methodology.  The present work describes how the three books, taken together, offer a comprehensive banking and financing system that addresses the needs and concerns of Muslims today.  Each book provides one or more independent modules of the system, and each module can be implemented alone or in combination with others depending on the circumstances and time frame.  Many of the modules are of general applicability — being Muslim is not a prerequisite.  Some modules contain several options to address different field conditions.  Consequently, the system spans so wide a spectrum of circumstances that practically every country and every community can find a combination that will suit its particular requirements.
