“Islam is not a mere religion; it is a way of life”. Apart from giving commandments for Prayers and Fasts
it also provides an in-depth guidance in every aspect of life. Finance is one of the four fundamental needs
of human life. Without finance the basic physiological needs of food, shelter and clothing cannot be fulfilled.
Hence, more than 70% of the Islamic teachings comprise of Fiqh-al-Muamlaat, the law of trade and dealings.
The prohibition of Riba (Interest/Usury), appropriate distribution of Zakat (Mandated Charity), and fair trade
practices are fundamental principles of Islamic Economics and Finance. This would bring about equity and social
justice to the mankind at large, and peace and prosperity would prevail.
To propagate the philosophy of Islamic Finance, Islami Tijara has taken the initiative to compile important
Quranic verses and Hadeeth pertaining to the Finance and Economics.
