Mr. Muhammad Zubair Mughal, the Chief Executive Officer of AlHuda CIBE said that International Conference on Islamic Leasing (Ijarah) will explore how new and effective strategies (according to Shariah compliant procedures) be formulated for economic sustainability and growth.
According to Mr. Mughal Ijarah (Islamic Leasing) have 24% substantial shares in Islamic finance industry followed by the dominant Murabaha (cost plus profit) product with the shares of 46% in global Islamic finance industry as mode of finance. While the Diminishing Musharkah (home financing) have its shares about 12%, Salam and Istisna (advance sale) have 5%, meanwhile Mudarbah and Musharkah (partnership based products) have about 2% and rest is belong to the other Islamic financing products.
Ijarah is very convenient product to launch in those jurisdictions where there is no proper legal and regulatory environment available to facilitate Islamic banking and financial products, he added. He argued that due to this feature Ijarah products can be introduced effectively and efficiently in European and American financial markets without introducing any additional legal and regulatory framework for enabling environment for Islamic finance products. By having Ijarah products in Weston conventional financial market, we can boost Islamic financial products a rapid pace and the overall share of Islamic finance can be reached at $3.0 trillion by the end of 2020. He also mentioned that Ijarah is a pure Islamic product and the leasing products were designed on the basis of Ijarah in 17th century to avoid the taxation and facilitate shipping industry.
