The Changing Face of Islamic Banking

The Changing Face of Islamic Banking
by Professor Sudin Haron
KLBS - Working Paper Series 011
November 2007

Abstract: "more and more parties have joined the bandwagon including non-Muslim institutions. This development has created a new dimension in Islamic banking system. Initially, Islamic banks were seen as institutions that operate based on religious doctrine. Today, many proponents believed that this doctrine is no longer applied by Islamic financial institutions. Majority appears to regard Islamic bank as a normal business entity with a profit maximization principle."
