Islamic banking is banking that is consistent with Sharia principles and its practical application through the development of Islamic economics and banking services. There are many solutions that have been devised to fulfill this need, but three of the most widely used are Murabaha, Ijara and Sukuk Al Ijara.
Islamic religious texts and fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) deal extensively with banking and business principles and laws and many Muslims wish to adhere to them. The presence of such a large, growing Muslim population and the unsuitability of traditional banking means that there is demand for Islamic banking products and services that must be met.
In certain countries, specialist Islamic banks exist and help meet the needs of Muslims wishing to adhere to Sharia laws and principles and in others, large, multinational banks have seized the opportunity to enter a new, fast-growing market. The market remains to a large extent however, under-developed.
