Non-Muslims & Islamic Finance


Seems there is a chunk of the non-Muslim population interested in Islamic financing. Not because it is more attractive in terms of return or cost (usually it isn’t), it is because these non-Muslims want an ‘ethical’ route to investing, where no part of their money goes to tobbaco, arms, etc. Interesting article in the BBC, hat-tip to a commentator on Austrolabe.

    Alhumdullah, Hopefully Ms Dellaway will find the true meaning behind the Islamic way of dealing with money and she will turn back to Islam.

    “In Malaysia up to 25% of Islamic accounts are opened by non-Muslims.” >

    Interesting article. It makes more sense to promote Islamic finance as “ethical” than as “Islamic” if you want to get non-muslims to support it.
