Islamic Banks and Wealth Creation

Islamic Banks and Wealth Creation
Prof. Dr. Abdul Ghafar Ismail
ISRA Research Paper (No. 9/2010)

"This paper aims to examine how Islamic banks create wealth: how customers as depositors invest their money through the banks; how the banks invest the funds at their disposal; and how economic agents such as individuals, firms and government use these funds. It also examines how this money generates profit, which is then distributed to Islamic banks and depositors, and hence preserves and develops the wealth (mal) of economic agents. It also raises the larger question of whether Islamic banks contribute to the well-being of society by focusing on return to depositors and to shareholders."
