The Money that Prays

In the London Review of Books (LRB), Jeremy Harding posted this rather literary review of Shariah-Compliant Finance in their 30 April 2009 issue. For a review article, it touches on more subjects than most, from Riba to Gharar to Islamic Finance's recent attractions, to Islamic Finance in Britain, to the treatment of Muslims in the West, to shariah-risk and the attractions of the less-seemly sides of Western finance, exotic derivatives.

This does not have anything new in it for those who know, but it is a well-written introduction for the complete outsider, and for insiders it is, nonetheless, rather satisfying to see it in print.

HT to Ibrahim Darwish (JAK!) of Muslim College, London.
