Private Investments: Islamic Perspective

Shariah investment is an alternative investment method with two governing fundamental principles; a) the sharing of the profits and losses and b) the collection of interests (‘riba’ in Arabic) by the lenders is strictly prohibited. There is also the requirement that the underlying assets have to be Shariah compliant.

Their methods have been gaining attraction in Christian dominated nations as well due to sound appeal of the underlying principles, which has given rise to new innovations.
