From the Back Cover:

Much has happened in the Islamic finance industry since this bestselling text was first published in 2007. This second edition is timely especially as there has been much re-thinking of the role of Islamic banks in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. New chapters on risk-sharing and financial stability, and other revisions should ensure that this remains the leading text in its field, with the strengths of the first edition retained, not least the lucid explanations of often complex financial products helped by useful flow charts.

Professor Rodney Wilson
Director, Durham University Islamic Finance Programme


An Introduction to Islamic Finance provides the first-tier response to all questions as to the nature and essence of modern Islamic finance, whether posed by the uninitiated and uninvolved or the financial practitioner seeking context and cohesion. With elegant simplicity and profound elucidation, the authors discuss the theoretical and practical elements and structures comprising this system and describe the integration of these elements and structures into a unified organic whole. We would all be well served if this were made compulsory reading not only for those having involvement or interest in global financial matters, but for anyone having an interest in cultural or political facets of Islam.

Michael J.T. McMillen
Former Partner, King & Spalding and Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P.
Adjunct Professor in Islamic finance, University of Pennsylvania Law School


Abbas Mirakhor and Zamir Iqbal are to be congratulated for providing us with a lucid, comprehensive and sophisticated introduction to the theory and practice of Shari’ah-compliant (Islamic) finance. Impressive in its scope—without being superficial in its treatment of its various topics—the text can be comfortably recommended as one of the handful of books that students of Islamic finance must have in their library. Economists will be particularly pleased by the inclusion of thoughtful discussions of Islamic economic principles from an institutional economics perspective, while business school and finance professors and students will be pleasantly surprised by significantly revised chapters with elucidative case studies on sukuk.

Unlike most books on Islamic finance that focus narrowly on the mechanics of Islamic banking operations and modes of financing, this book presents Islamic finance from an institutional economics perspective and discusses various issues related to the financial system and structure. It also provides a comprehensive overview of the challenges facing Islamic financial industry and suggests ways to mitigate these. By highlighting the risk sharing and stability features of Islamic finance, the authors present a convincing case for the Islamic financial sector to revert to its foundational principles in the post-crisis era.

From the Inside Flap:

Islamic finance has experienced remarkable growth over the last three decades and the global demand for financial products and services that comply with economic and financial principles of Islam is increasing day by day. For newcomers to this burgeoning market, An Introduction to Islamic Finance: Theory and Practice offers an excellent overview of the principal concepts from two leading scholars in Islamic finance.

This book explains the fundamental principles and functions of an economic, banking and financial system based on principles derived from the basic sources of Islam. Rules constituting the institutional scaffolding of such a system—property rights principles, sanctity of contracts and the requirement of faithfulness to terms and conditions of contracts, trust and trustworthiness, risk sharing, and prohibition of interest-rate based debt contracts among others—are discussed with relation to the economic behavior of individuals, society and state.

Dr. Zamir Iqbal, affiliated with the World Bank, and Dr. Abbas Mirakhor, former Dean of Executive Directors at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and, presently First Holder of INCEIF Chair of Islamic Finance in Kuala Lumpur, bring their theoretical knowledge and experience of economics, finance, banking, and capital markets to provide valuable insights to the fast growing Islamic financial services industry.

In the wake of the recent financial crisis, An Introduction to Islamic Finance offers a comprehensive and practical guide for anyone seriously interested in understanding the Islamic finance alternative and the enormous potential it holds.
