History

Islamic finance is intended to be an alternative financial system based on the rules laid down in Islamic law, the Shari'ah, which is articulated in the Qur'an and Sunna. The industry has its roots in the post-colonial period in the 1950's, when scholars in many previously colonized and newly independent states worked to develop a new economic system, a third way between capitalism and socialism based on the assumption that Muslims will have a larger social interest in their economic interactions than non-Muslims; Read more...

Knowledge Center

There are 1.2 billion Muslims in the world, and 6 million in the United States[1], yet little is known about a relatively new and rapidly growing area of finance administered in compliance with Shari'ah law. Shari'ah (Islamic) law lays down a code of ethics and conduct under which Muslims are instructed to live their lives. However, it is very difficult for Muslims to comply with the financial restrictions enunciated in the Qur'an and Sunna because the Islamic financial industry is still undeveloped or absent in many areas of the world.

Education Resources

The main area in which Islamic finance has entered the United States is in academic institutions. Harvard University has a well-developed Islamic Finance Project (IFP) under the law school, which brings in scholars from law, economics, business and Islamic studies together to study the development of Islamic finance. Since 1997, the IFP (previously the Harvard Islamic Finance Information Project (HIFIP)) has hosted an annual conference, the University Forum on Islamic Finance, where current research in Islamic finance is presented and discussed. Since 2000, this conference occurs biennially. Read more...
